Costa del Sol Excursions & Tours: It looks and sounds like Britain but with the difference that it basks in the warm Spanish sunshine. Welcome to Gibraltar, the rocky outcrop that harks back to Britain’s imperial past, where the post boxes are red and the currency is sterling, and where the Union Jack flies over the hilltop Moorish castle.

This is a city where you breathe the past in every nook and cranny. Choose between the different tours on offer and experience Gibraltar.
During the Rock Tour, visit the Rock of Gibraltar, the symbol of the colony. Marvel at the miles-long network of tunnels, which was built during World War II when the city was of massive strategic importance. These were used to provide refuge for thousands of Gibraltarians during air raids.
The Gibraltar with caves option heads to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar, which has more than 150 caves inside, including the 300 metre-high St Michael’s Cave, to marvel at the views of Africa and the Bay of Gibraltar and head into the caves. Meet the troops of wild Barbary macaques, the only population of such monkeys in Europe. Legend has it that as long as they are on the rock, Gibraltar will remain British.
Or set sail on our award-winning dolphin boat trip to go in search of wild dolphins. The skipper and crew will share all their knowledge about dolphins. It also offers a great chance to view the rock from a different perspective. It is also possible to only book the boat trip. The boat option is available only during summer season.
Modern Gibraltar is also a thriving commercial hub, with duty free prices luring bargain hunters all year round. Choosing our shopping tour that allows you some free time to hit the shops and make the most of the bargains on offer.
