Leaving the Costa del Sol behind, your tour takes you on a pleasant scenic drive towards the Rock. Listen to your expert guide narrating the history of this incredible place, from its origins as a shelter for Neanderthal men (with exciting findings inside its many caves) to its Muslim settlement in 711 at the start of the Moorish conquest of Spain, up to the present-day community that inhabits the area.
Visit the impressive subterranean St. Michael's Cave—formed by rainwater filtering through cracks and fissures—and get details about the underground tunnels that comprise 30 miles (50 km) of passages through the Rock.
If you fancy getting your hands on great bargains, stroll the Queensway area to take advantage of the prices and lack of value-added tax. Keep your eyes wide open for the famous Barbary Macaques (the only wild monkeys in Europe) running free—you may be able to snap a picture of them.
