During this afternoon tour, you will drive along the outskirts of town as your minibus takes you directly to the British/Spanish Land Frontier. Your Driver/Guide will give a brief overview of Gibraltar’s history along the way and will point out the areas you will be visiting St. Michael’s Cave, Apes Den and the  Great Siege Tunnels.

St. Michael's Cave harks back to prehistoric times, as it was inhabited by dwellers from the Stone Age. You can explore the stalagmite and stalactite formations as you listen to the classical music made more appealing due to the caves acoustical qualities.

There will be a photo stop at the Apes' Den, where Gibraltar's famous Barbary Apes reside and roam free. Your driver/guide will tell you of the legend surrounding these curious and sometimes mischievous primates. Keep your possessions close, as they have a penchant for handbags and cameras.

At the Upper Galleries, you will learn how critical the Rock was as a British outpost protecting the entrance to the Mediterranean. You’ll walk through the network of tunnels, which were hollowed by British troops. From the tunnels, you can see the many posts that were used to fire weapons upon advancing ships. Today, the tunnels and viewpoints offer interesting photo opportunities for visitors.

You'll see the walls and bastions of the Tower of Homage at the Moorish Castle before traveling down the winding streets of the Upper Rock, making your way back to the ship.

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 1.5 miles over even surfaces with various inclines with approximately 60 to 70 steps. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. It is suggested that you do not approach, touch or feed the Barbary Apes. Tour does not include cable car ride.
