    Taxi tour.
    Probably the best way to see the sites is by taxi. They start to accost you immediately upon entering Gibralter (from Spain). DO NOT TAKE THESE TOURS!! They cost about 30 Euros more than if you found another somewhere in the city. You should not pay any more then 25 Euros per person for a tour that lasts about 2 hours. They take you to all the tourist spots in an air-conditioned taxi van and give you a basic history lesson as well. There is not that much to actually see in Gibralter and you could cover it all in a day. Good thing too, it's VERY expensive there. They use British pounds not the Euro.
    You must make sure to see the Barbary apes. They are scattered all over the 'rock' and will jump on your head for a nice little photo-op if they think you have food. They are accustomed to people so you can get very close to them.

    ROCK TOUR BY TAXI
    If you leave the car in Spain, a Taxi Tour is a good way to have a quick first impression of the Rock's Main Highlights. Take the taxis just by the border, as you pass the controls. 7 pounds per person, minimum 4 persons.
    You'll see:
    - The Great Siege Tunnels.
    - The Moorish Castle.
    - St. Michael's Cave.
    - The Apes (take care with the cameras).
    - Europa Point.
    - The Coastal Guns.

    A must is take a tour, visit some of the sights or all the sights,there's a sub that takes you out in the bay to see the dolphins,have a walk round the side roads ,Gibraltar is 100% safe for you and me,shop in our mainstreet with no siesta mon-fri,visit the museum,10th of sept National Day-funday.
    The Tour will show you everything you want to see,you'll learn about it's history, past and present,it's fauna and flaura and on general local information in quite a comfortable way.Thursday evenings is good at Casemate Square with live music,restaurants and bars,evening shopping too.

    Yes, go SIGHTSEEING.

    In order to enjoy Gibraltar to the fullest, may I recommend that you take the Rock Tour (lasting 90 minutes) either via coach or cab. Included in the tour are visits to the:-

    (a) Nature Reserve with St Michael's Cave.

    (b) Apes Den.

    (c) The Great Siege Tunnels (an optional excursion)

    (d) Europa Point with its panoramic views of the Strait, Europe and Africa.

    (e) The Town Center.

    Other note-worthy sights worth seeing here also include:

    (1) The Gibraltar Museum.

    (2) The Moorish Castle.

    (3) The Military Heritage Center.

    (4) The Shrine of Our Lady of Europe.

    (5) 100 Ton Gun
    .... etc.

    Wow... so many things to see... make sure you allocate some time to see all these great sights!

    You must take a Rock Tour and visit the Barbary apes. Our guide would assist with getting a semi-wild ape on your shoulder for a picture....

    My wife really enjoyed visiting the apes! She's not crying.... she's laughing!!

    Funny thing.... she's been going through a lot of shampoo.....

    A private driving tour

    by Erin09340 Written Mar 6, 2005

    We had a great tourguide who had all kinds of information to share regarding the history of Gibraltar. We saw all the sites in an efficient manner, for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    quiet time

    If you have the money you get a lot out of Gibraltar hiring a minibus taxi. They take you on a guided tour that fits a family or small group.

    Get a black cab tour around the Rock. We tried walking up the hill in the rain and quickly gave up. The caves, the apes and the Tunnels are all very interesting!
