Tour description


The duration of this Tour will is in the region of 3 to 4 hours as we walk up the Rock. There will be numerous photo opportunities along the route. You will get the chance to see some stunning views and many of the historical military sites that are found in the Upper Rock. I can take you to places that you would not usually visit if you go up by taxi or mini bus and I guarantee that you will always see some of Gibraltar’s world famous Monkeys. The paths along the Upper Rock are uneven so I suggest you wear suitable shoes and that you also bring along a bottle of water, because it can get quite hot up the Rock in the Summer months.  

The current price to enter the Nature Reserve and all the attractions is £16.00 and they only accept Cards. The attractions visited will include Devil’s Gap Battery The Apes Den The Windsor Bridge Rooke’s Battery St Michaels Cave The Sky Walkway The Tour will end back in the centre of the Town. 

To make a Tour viable I need several different groups and a minimum of persons. For larger and private groups we do not operate on a Tour for Tips basis, but can customize the length of the Tour and start when you wish.

Absolutely brilliant Tour. Great tour guide and very knowledgeable I could not get a 9 o'clock tour as not enough bookings so he fitted me in at 2 o'clock which I was very grateful for.

This was a really great Tour. The earlier start time did not work for us so I contacted Stephen and booked on the 2:00 PM tour instead. This was a chargeable Tour but was very reasonable and no more than I would have tipped anyway. We did the Med Steps, well off the beaten track and highly recommended. If your in Gibraltar this Tour is a must.

Such a fantastic way to spend the day. Quite a bit of effort but a really great day. We took the Mediterranean Steps option to the summit and it was round trip. Really enjoyed Stephens company and insights about the region. An absolute must and Stephen is a wonderful guide.

Nice tour, requires some fitness though since the Rock ist quite high and you're basically starting from sea level. Bring a bottle of water, you'll need it! I would have liked a bit more info on Gibraltar's history. Didn't come prepared, just popping in for a day during a stay in Andalucia. But Stephen was always there for questions and we had nice conversations. Thanks for the walk, Stephen! Roland, Germany

Excellent tour with Stephen, who is very passionate about Gibraltar & its history. We saw sights which most tour companies don't visit, so it was good to see these places with few or no other tourists. A lot of steps & steep climbs, but well worth the effort! Thanks again Stephen.
