    Stop At: Pillars of Hercules, Queen's Rd, Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar

    According to Greek mythology Hercules had to take on twelve tasks. One of these tasks was to bring the cattle of Geryon from the west to Eurytheus. On his journey Hercules had to cross the Atlas Mountains. Rather than climbing over these mountains, he used his great strength to smash through them and as a result, he brought the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean together. After he had achieved this task, the result was what is now known as The Pillars of Hercules. This became the Rock of Gibraltar on the northern side and Jebel Musa in Ceuta on the southern side.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: St. Michael's Cave, Off of Queen's Road, Gibraltar

    Of over the 150 caves that have been discovered in the Rock of Gibraltar this is the most visited with over one million visitors per year. The cave is situated at over 300 metres above sea level.
    In 1942 during the second world war blasting was in process inside this cave in order to allow for more ventilation. The cave was to be used as an emergency hospital. During the blasting, a discovery was made of a deeper system of caves which is now known as Lower St. Michael’s Cave.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: O'Hara's Battery, Rock of Gibraltar, Gibraltar

    O'Hara's Battery is an artillery battery in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. It is located at the highest point of the Rock of Gibraltar at 1383ft, near the southern end of the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, in close proximity to Lord Airey's Battery. It was constructed in 1890 at the former site of a watchtower that had earned the name O'Hara's Folly.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Monkey feeding station, Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar

    Top of the Rock where you will see breathtaking views all around Gibraltar. Here we will have an interaction with our famous Monkeys at Upper Apes Den (The same height level as the cable) The Barbary Macaque Apes are the only ones to be found within the continent of Europe. They reside at the upper rock nature reserve of Gibraltar. At present there are over 200 apes in 9 packs that roam through the upper rock. Legend has it that in 1942 the population of apes fell to just 7 and the Prime Minister of Great Britain (Sir Winston Churchill) ordered that the population of the apes be immediately replenished because as long as there are Barbary Macaques Apes on the Rock of Gibraltar it will remain under British rule.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: The Great Siege Tunnels, Midway up at the northern end of the rock, Gibraltar

    These tunnels are one of the main attractions of the Rock of Gibraltar. The tunnels were carved out of the rock by hand during the Great Siege which took place between 1779-1783. This was done in order to defend Gibraltar against the Spanish and French forces who were trying to recapture Gibraltar from the British.
    Whilst tunnelling it was decided that a horizontal hole be blasted in the rock face in order to improve ventilation for the workmen. On closer examination it was realised that a gun could be put in place to bear down on attacking forces.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Gibraltar: A City Under Siege Exhibition, Gibraltar Town, Gibraltar

    City under Siege Exhibition – The buildings in which this exhibition is housed are probably one of the first buildings ever constructed by the British in Gibraltar hence dating back to the beginning of the 18th Century.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: World war II tunnel, Willis's Rd, Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar

    Winston Churchill and the British military leaders believed that an attack on Gibraltar was imminent therefore the answer was to construct a massive network of tunnels, to build a fortress inside a fortress, a city within a city.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: The Moorish Castle Complex (The Tower of Homage and The Gate House), Willis Road, Gibraltar

    The Moorish Castle is situated at the northern end of the upper rock nature reserve. The construction of this Castle commenced in the 8th century AD but no known date of completion is recorded. The Castle was rebuilt in the 14th century after its near destruction during a re-conquest of Gibraltar by the Moors.
    The Castle itself is made up of various buildings, gates and fortified walls that stretch out from the upper rock down to the sea, The Tower of Homage and The Gate House being its most dominant features.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Main Street, Gibraltar

    Here we will give you in-between 1 to 1.30 hours depending on the time that has been consumed at the sites in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve. So you may have lunch wonder through the narrow streets of our enchanting old town, you may also do some shopping in the Main Street area.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: 100 Ton Gun Napier of Magdala Battery, Rosia Rd, Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar

    The 100 Ton Gun actually weighs just over 100 Tons and is one of only two to still be around in the world today. Out of the four that were built in 1870, two of these giant guns were built for the defence of Gibraltar while the other two were built for Malta. The 100 Ton Gun now resides at Napier of Magdala Battery in Gibraltar.
    The gun itself has a 32 feet long barrel and can fire a 2,000 pound shell that can reach a distance of 8 miles at a speed of 1,500 feet per second. This gave the gun the ability to penetrate just over 2 feet of iron.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Europa Point, Gibraltar GX11 1AA

    Europa Point, situated at the most southern point of Gibraltar, is where the Europa Point Lighthouse can be found. Here we can appreciate spectacular views across the Straits of Gibraltar into North Africa, Morocco and Spanish Ceuta, as well as views across the Bay of Gibraltar.
    The Lighthouse itself was built between 1838 and 1841. In 1994 it became fully automated, its loom can be seen from over 27 kilometres (17 miles) away. At Europa Point can be found the Shrine of Our Lady of Europa along with The Nuns Well which is an ancient underground reservoir.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Catalan Bay, Gibraltar

    Catalan Bay, known in Spanish as ‘La Caleta’, is a small bay and fishing village in Gibraltar on the eastern side of the Rock away from the main city. The true origin of the name of Catalan Bay is unknown, but a couple of theories exist: the first suggests that the bay is named after a group of around 350 Catalan (from Catalonia) military men believed to have settled here after having assisted the Anglo-Dutch forces who captured Gibraltar during the War of Spanish Succession on 4th August 1704.
