We would like to welcome you to Rock Around the Rock Tours. On this website we will introduce you to, and give you a little taste of our fascinating and unique Rock of Gibraltar. With its stunning and spectacular views, hot and sunny climate and rich diverse history, Gibraltar is the perfect destination for weekend breaks, daytrips and longer stays.
Official tour guide around the rock of Gibraltar, visit St Michael's Cave, Apes Den, The Great Siege Tunnels, Moorish Castle, 100 Ton Gun, Europa Point and many more amazing places of interest.
Let us take you on a journey around the rock.
We will tell you about the history and legends of Gibraltar and even introduce you to some of the apes.
A great way to discover Gibraltar is with your own personal tour guide. Gibraltar's taxi drivers are experienced guides who have extensive knowledge of Gibraltar's history, flora and fauna, the legends, the sites, and more importantly where to take the best pictures.
You will find that Gibraltar is indeed a unique destination, with a blend of many cultures, history, heritage and brilliant vistas. Gibraltar has been a British colony for the past 300 hundred years and it was previously inhabited by the Spanish and Moors and each has left their mark on the place. It is completely different to anything you have experienced before. Whilst you are based in Gibraltar you will have the opportunity of visiting both Spain and Morocco, giving you the opportunity to sample three different cultures in one single holiday.
All the prices are VAT free, so your money does stretch further. All kinds of articles are available in Gibraltar, from watches to perfumery and from designer clothes to your normal "duty free" items like alcohol or tobacco. Also take a visit to the new vibrant Ocean Village boasting an array of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and leisure facilities including the New Casino & Bingo complex and the luxury 5 star floating hotel, the Sunborn, all surrounding the new waterfront port.
To avoid disappointment it is strongly recommended to book a tour directly with us via our web page especially if you are arriving on a large cruise liner, or if you are travelling with children, elderly persons or persons with disabilities. During the months of May-November it is sometimes very difficult to find a taxi for Rock Tours due to the sheer demand. Cruise ships create great demand especially the largest vessels that visit Gibraltar regularly during these months.
The history of Gibraltar tells us that the Rock of Gibraltar is one of the Pillars of Hercules and was know to the Greeks as the Mons Calpe. The other pillar is the Mons Abyla or Jebel Musa, on the African side of the strait of Gibraltar and can be seen quite clearly (most of the time) from the top of the Rock or at Europa Point (southern tip of Gibraltar).
In ancient times these two points 'marked' the limit to the known world that should not be crossed (a myth originally created by the Phoenicians).
The Rock of Gibraltar is one of the best known landmarks in the World. Strategically located at the crossroads of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, it also finds itself between two continents that are vastly different, Europe and Africa. This also means that if you are in the area, it is mandatory that you visit it. Over seven million people visit Gibraltar every year and you could be one of them.
Visitors to Gibraltar are mostly made up of either day-trippers or tourists enjoying a short break for several days. Although the day trip will give you an insight into Gibraltar, it does not do justice to its many sites and attractions. It is therefore recommended that you come for at least three days.
