Shore Excursion to Gibraltar from Cadiz Port with an Official Guide

Loading...

Gibraltar is located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. It is recognized historically as the southernmost point of Europe. The accessible full-day Gibraltar sightseeing tour will pick you up at Gibraltar’s port. During the tour, you will visit the main attractions with an official tour guide. Besides, we also offer this full-day Gibraltar sightseeing tour with pick-up and drop-off from Seville (2.5h drive) or Málaga (2h drive).

First, we will go to the Europa Point to look out across the Strait of Gibraltar. Here you may be able to see the coast of Morocco on a clear day. According to mythology, Heracles put up two columns. One is The Rock of Gibraltar which guards the passage between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

Another point of interest is St. Michael’s Cave, a prehistoric cave with stalagmites hanging from the rock ceiling above that has theater-style seating. Continuing to the Great Siege Tunnels we will learn about the impressive defense system in the upper rock. It was commissioned during the War of American Independence when France and Spain coordinated an attempt to recapture the Rock from the British in Gibraltar’s 14th Siege (known as the Great Siege). They have incredible views through the gun turrets. Afterward, we will visit Trafalgar Cemetery which lies at the edge of Gibraltar’s Old Town.

Airplane Spotting is a popular activity in Gibraltar, due to its unusual runway that crosses the main road which closes for every take-off and landing of an aircraft. Pedestrians and wheelchair riders can also cross the runway.

We will walk along Main Street and Casemate’s Square. It is the city’s largest public square that was once the site of public executions. There are many bars and restaurants around, so we will do a lunch break to taste the typical food. Curiously, gastronomy is not only a mix of Spanish and British but also northern Italian cuisine has a strong influence here. We will also find the Cathedral of St. Mary the Crowned, established in 1492 while Gibraltar was under Spanish rule. Nowadays, it is the seat of the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gibraltar.

We will also discover the Marina Bay, a seaside walk lined with restaurants and a casino. Finally, we will end the accessible full-day Gibraltar sightseeing tour at the cruise port (or to drive back to mainland Spain).

Our itineraries are a selection of those most interesting parts that avoids steps, pronounced hills and cobblestones, following a mostly flat path along the tour, and we tailor each tour to each group’s preferences and specific accessibility needs. During the visit to St. Michael’s Cave there’s a lift to access the auditorium, but the cave is not wheelchair accessible. Most of the tunnels of the Great Siege are wheelchair accessible. The entrance to Trafalgar Cemetery from the street is a bit steep, so manual chair users may need assistance in safely rolling down and once inside, it has narrow pathways, paved with stone and cement. Some of the pavements around the Marina are made of cobblestone, but the docks themselves are constructed of wood. The Cathedral of St. Mary the Crowned’s main sanctuary and chapel are both wheelchair accessible.

This tour includes private accessible transport which is available for reaching most of the locations described on the itinerary, therefore walking parts can be also shortened, for those preferring to stay longer at the minivan or the minibus. Our adapted vehicles are allowed to drive to the road that drives up to the rock of Gibraltar.
