Board a small motor coach at the pier for this panoramic drive, and follow the route to Winston Churchill Avenue and across the airstrip to the Spanish border. At the Trinity Lighthouse you will pass the city walls, the American War Memorial, and Trafalgar Cemetery.

At Europa Point, savor the views across the Strait of Gibraltar to the North African mainland just 14 miles away.

Continue on along Queen's Road to the Queen's Balcony, and enjoy views of the town and harbor below. Further on is the Upper Rock Nature Reserve where St Michael's Cave is filled with stalactites and stalagmites, a spectacular underground cavern that serves as a splendid setting for concerts and theater performances.

No visit to the Rock would be complete without a stop at the Apes' Den -- home of the island's famous Barbary apes. Legend has it that Gibraltar will remain British as long as the apes remain here. The apes roam freely and have been known to snatch bags or cameras and even bite those who come too close, so please keep your hands to yourself.

The return drive carries you past the old Moorish Castle en route back to town. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.

Please note: The visit to St Michael's Cave involves negotiating 75 steps to the exit; guests may opt to exit via the entry point to avoid the stairs. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
