The nature reserve includes the streets and paths on the upper part of the Gibraltar rock and a few historical attractions that are worth checking out. We bought walking tickets so that we could see as much as possible on foot. The biggest attraction for...More

Got walking tickets following the reviews of some of the other ‘attractions’ and Glad we did. Plenty of walking to be done and very steep in places. Highlights were the Windsor Bridge and Battery’s. Great views across Gibraltar. Wouldn’t rush back once seen though

The Nature Reserve is really good value, they have even installed a high level footbridge which I must admit took me some nerve to cross. The apes are great too!

Great stop on our private tour. Great photo opportunities and a fun stop on the tour. I'd suggest a tour so you have easy transport to the Reserve.

Is a must to go place. Standing on the Rock, you can feel why there is the phrase "the Strait of Gibraltar". I went for 1 hour and 20 minutes with a taxi. I was alone and another 7 people. The price is 35 EUR....More

Get up to the top of the rock of Gibraltar and enjoy the monkeys, the beautiful flowers and trees and spectacular views over to North Africa and across the bays of Spain. Really beautiful.

If you are going to do a full day and visit all the sites I would recommend a combi ticket. This can be done with the cable car or without. The WW2 tunnels have to be paid for on the day (£8 pp) but you...More

Hi, St. Michael's cave is closest to the cable car, so usually people see it first. We didn't go to the WW2 caves because they were closed.
