Gibraltar Ape's Den cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Gibraltar's top attraction, tailless monkeys known as Barbary Apes, congregate in this viewing area. The last remaining population of the species on the European continent, these playful primates are thriving.

Arranged a taxi thru the ship--overpriced significantly. We spoke to our taxi driver and found out that the ship charged almost 3 times what he would have charged himself. Loved the apes.

2 monkeys in the Ape's Den and they both looked rather old and seedy and pretty sick.

The Apes came to greet us and they were fascinating. Going by taxi was great. You could get straight up to the top where the Ape's den is situated.

If you leave the port and walk towards the main square/street where the shops are, but keep walking through you come to the cable car (you can get a shuttle from the port too), it took us about 15 minutes and you can see the cable car up the rock so know which way to head.We were going to take the cable car up the rock, but when we got there the queue was very long. We were offered a tour by a man who had a mini bus, they take you to each of the areas up the rock you want to see monkeys, st michaels cave & world war II tunnells etc, they park up, let you walk around for 20 minutes and then take you onto the next place. It is the same cost of the cable car but much less walking and the tour guide was very knowledgable. Tourists seem to think they are there to rip you off, but they are not, we personally felt this was the best way to view the rock and it's sites, they do not take any money from you until the end to prove they are not con artists and do wait for you at each stop.
