Fantastic Tour
Oct. 2021
A must do on a trip to Gibraltar, Stephen's walking tour of the Upper Rock is superb! Stephen is very knowledgeable about all things Gibraltar and the tour pace is set by the participants, which is very thoughtful and ensures that everyone has a good experience.
The tour itself ensures you see everything there is to see on top of the Rock, including of course the world famous Macaques. Should you have a question about anything you are seeing, Stephen will not hesitate to answer.
The steepness of the Rock should not be a barrier to anyone's visit since the tour allows plenty of time for rest stops and photo opportunities.
Thank you again Stephen for a great tour and for being so welcoming on our trip to Gibraltar.

A must do walking tour if you are in Gibraltar
A great way to spend an Afternoon on the Rock - Stephen is a great guide and ensured we went to all the must see places. Friendly and knowledgeable and ensured all in our small group were involved.

Informative Tour
Oct. 2021
Thank you Stephen for a fabulous tour. Your scheduling to fit in with our cruise itinerary was perfect. You are a mine of information about all aspects relating to the Rock. The climb was well paced with regular stops at view points. Anyone with a reasonable level of fitness should take the opportunity to walk the Rock with Stephen. My father spent time here in WW2 so it was fascinating to see the fortifications & look down on what would have been the Naval Base. The new light show in St Michael's Cave was excellent accompanied by music. The SkyWalk was a great experience & thanks for taking some superb photos of us.

Wonderful Walking Tour Experience….
Oct. 2021
Stephen’s Upper Walking Tour experience had everything we could have hoped for and more.

I contacted Stephen to get details of his walking tour prior to arriving in Gibraltar as part of our Cruise, we received a helpful response. He timetabled our walk to fit in with our arrival and departure times.

His consideration of our walking pace was absolutely spot on. Stephen’s sharing of knowledge was excellent, shared as we walked along and at each opportunity of a view point he made it an extremely interesting visit.

I came to Gibraltar knowing little of its history, that soon changed in the four hours we were with Stephen.

This walking tour is one of the best we have taken on our travels, not only did we enjoy the walking and some stunning views as we went along but Stephen answered our many questions as we walked.

So much to see and learn about on this peninsular, thank you Stephen.

Great views from the med steps. Stephen is knowledgable and keen to answer all questions. The walk itself can be challenging at points but everyone was allowed to go at their own pace with regular breaks.

Great upper Rock tour, best we could wish for! Seen Gibraltar on all sides with spectaculair views.
My wife &I had a great enthusiastic guided hiking/ walk around the Rock all the way around the south side to the top.
The views we’ve seen were fantastic, the higher you get the more impressive views you get.
Stephen our guide is an experienced hiker and guided us excellent up the Rock with choices for an easier or a heavier trail, we did the heavier trail and more scenic one and it was worth it the effort.
We choose the walking tour around the Rock with the idea it would be the best way to experience Gibraltar and we were right!
To us it’s the best way to see the Rock.
Thanks Stephen

Breathtaking Views and Excellent Information
Sep. 2021
Stephen lead us on a delightful and a few times challenging walk up Gibraltar. As his website states - one will end up at the top of the great Rock. All the way he provided interesting information about Gibraltar and pointed out the various sights as we ascended. He knows the Rock well: where to stop for great views, water and bathroom breaks (if needed), and especially the do’s and don’ts of the monkeys (and we saw plenty!). One basically circles the Rock on the ascent, starting on the west side and continuing to the tranquil east side and the Med Steps. It is safe to say we would not have done this 3-4 hour journey on our own and having Steve’s knowledge and encouragement gave us a sense of accomplishment upon completion of our walk.

What we hoped for, and more
Sep. 2021 • Couples
This is the way to really experience the Upper Rock and the spectacular views. Stephen was an excellent and knowledgable guide, who was able to ensure that all in our group enjoyed the experience. Whilst definitely not a ‘stroll’ the effort was rewarded many times over and will remain the highlight of our trip to Gibraltar.
