I'm giving this a Very Good rating though it's really just a cable car that's pretty much like cable cars around the world. Why, then, don't I rate it as average? First, it takes you higher up on the Rock then any other conveyance (taxi...More

This attraction is extremely overpriced for what you get. The cable doesn't even take you to the top of the rock where they best views are! Yes, you get to see some monkey's, but the friendlier pacts are up farther at the Monkey's Den. Other...More

Good views and quick. Head straight to the top with ease. Be mindful of the monkeys when you get off, they will be waiting for something to steal.

I really thought they would not completely load the car and that we would be able to get more of a view. Also there is no narration on ride up so you just ride up. We also were given mis-information at the bottom saying that...More

Will save t you time but still long lines the later in the day you go. Just be prepared for this, as there is a line outside and inside-like Disney.

Yes all reviews are correct. Great views and very long lines. Cable car houses 25-30 people. Still able to get great views with all the people. We looked up not down !!

Great ride, albeit over very quickly. Must see Skywalk. Great fun for children. The best way to meet the apes.

This is a popular attraction, so queues do develop. It is absolutely worth the wait, in my opinion. The views are fantastic! It is a quick ride up and down. Café, gift shop, bar and public toilets at the upper rock station. This is, in...More

I supposed that for any first-time visitor to Gilbratar, taking the cable car is a MUST. So we did and it was worth every penny. The scenery is incredible and though the afternoon was a little hazy, Africa was clearly visible. A truly breath-taking trip...More

When you arrive you can call a taxi to save time. They come quickly and do not charge too much. They run on a meter starting at about £4.70. Probably won't you more than £7
