Travel directly from the pier by to the Apes' Den -- home of the light-fingered Barbary apes. These are the only primates living in the wild in all of Europe and you will see these tailless monkeys roaming freely. Keep your possessions close and do not feed or touch these wild animals.

Visit the Great Siege Tunnels. This labyrinth of passageways and rooms running through the rock is carved out of solid limestone and represents perhaps the most extraordinary defense system in the world. You will also see the first buildings ever constructed by the British in Gibraltar.

A drive through the Old Town will take you to Nelson's Anchorage and to Europa Point -- the westernmost point of continental Europe.

The Gibraltar Museum features a 20-minute film depicting the evolution of the Rock over the past 200,000 years. Guests who wish to stay in town for duty-free shopping or to explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes. Due to transportation constraints, scooters, wheelchairs and walkers cannot be accommodated on tour. You can use your mobility aid to reach the transportation; then, it will be stored in the cruise terminal until you return from your tour.
