We have selected the two best options for your visit to this magnificent destination. On the one hand, you can take a coach tour of the RockYou can also use the cable car to go up to the top of the Rock.
The Gibraltar Cable Car (Gibraltar Cable Car) operates throughout the day, with one running approximately every 10 minutes. The journey is up to 412 metres high and takes about 6 minutes.
One of the most frequently asked questions about the Gibraltar Cable Car is the price. Here's how much it costs and where you can catch it.

Our recommendation is to visit Gibraltar with our Excursion to Gibraltar from Malaga and Costa del Solwhich includes an organised tour with access to the main attractions of the rock You will be accompanied by a guide and have free time for sightseeing and shopping in the city centre.
However, if you prefer, you may use this free time to buy your ticket for the cable car to be able to access the top of the rock, contemplate the beautiful views, enjoy a snack in the cafeteria, and if you prefer, access the Skywalk.
Another option that is different from what you are used to seeing is to hire a Excursion to Gibraltar and Dolphin Sightseeing by Boat from MalagaYou can also have some free time to visit the rock on your own and access via the cable car, you choose the one that best suits your preferences!
