Gibraltar Shore Excursions



The following applies to all excursions:
You should never feel that gratuities are expected from you. However, it is customary to leave a few extra Euros in recognition of service at restaurants, for taxis, and for exceptional excursion guides and drivers. It is always up to you as to what you feel is appropriate.

Ascend the rock on a cable car to the Top Station, home to a World War II gun emplacement. Note: In peak season, wait times can be up to 45 minutes for the cable car.
