Have been to gib before and done the guided tours etc. Just wanted to do my thing at my pace and this trip gave me over 5 hrs to do that so yes was good. For me it was an easy cheap way to get to Gibraltar albeit at the expense of lots of stops which didn't bother me as I don't mind the journey

It was very enjoyable small group tour. Our guide Xavier picked us up from the hotel as promised 8:30am. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with lots of details about Girona, Figueres and Dali.

Really recommend this two hour sunset trip Welcoming staff Really comfortable boat beautiful sunset

Was lovely, gave blankets, friendly and the view was worth every penny. Beautiful experience.

Spectacular experience. Much more than we thought the “Rock” might be.
