Are there any direct buses to Gibraltar from Seville or from Marbella? We want to visit both of these Spanish cities as well as Gibraltar in May.
who is the Roman man and where is the statue ?
I think it was close to statue of Admiral Rooke.
can you cross the border in and out of gibraltar numerous times the same day with your duty free allowance each time?
CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THERE IS A LIMIT ON THE AMOUNT OF TABACCO PRODUCTS YOU CAN BRING OUT OF GIBRALTAR, AND IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?
Just moved to Gibraltar, so don't know my way around yet.
Does anyone know where I can take passport photos, either here in or in La Linea?
And if anyone has any additional useful information or tips for newcomers, that is welcomed as well!
We´ll be in the vicinity of Gibraltar and would lilke to make a day trip, but I understand it takes a long time to cross the border by car for whatever reason. Could anyone help with an advice how to reach Gibraltar and visit for a few hours without excessive queing at the border. Is it possible to park the car in La Linea de la Concepcion and then walk over, or take a boat/public bus etc? Thanks!

Hello, My fiance and I will be getting married in Gibraltar on March 5th 2013, we are looking for 2 people at that time present in Gibraltar to be witnesses to the ceremony. Thanks, Sandy
im visiting Gibraltar soon, and I wanted to bring back some hand rolling tobacco (legal limit) for my family, can anybody give me a rough idea how much it costs out there? thanks
Can you buy UK electrical goods such as TV's and Washing Machines In Gibralter. If so is it easy to export to Spain or do you just put in the back of a car.
I am loooking for a return taxi from Malaga airport to Gibraltar for approx 3 persons. When searching online taxi companies give quotes for £120 one way, this is outside our budget. Does anyone know of anyone that provides this service to/from Gibraltar or a taxi share scheme/forum? There must be something. Thanks.
What type of ID do you need to cross over the border from Spain to Gibraltar? For a day stay is it cheaper and safe to stay in La Linea as opposed to Gibraltar itself? Thanks for your help.
Thanks for the replies to my previous question. With regard to the border, do they just sort of wave you through or is it a take-your-shoes-off/tip-you-bag-out/strip-search type interogation checkpoint (like going through the airport has unfortunately become)? If I stay outside the border I don't fancy that every time I want to a walk into Gibraltar? Also I forgot to say before, myself and my cousin who I will be travelling with are both female (both 30). Is going through the border area 'safe' for women travellers? Bearing in mind it may be sort of 10/11ish at night? Also, does the border close at night. I'd hate to be stranded! Thanks Kay
Hi, does anyone have any info on how reliable it is to post documents from the UK to Gibraltar using Royal Mail, or should I use a courier ? Thanks for any info Margaret
Hi, We're planning on visiting Gibraltar for 3 days (2 nights) in April, however, I've not been impressed with the reviews of the (four!) hotels in Gibraltar. Three of the reviews are pretty poor and the other hotel is out of our price range. I'm therefore considering getting a hotel just over the border as they seemto be much cheaper and of a higher quality and wondered if anyone had done this or could say whether it's a good idea? I'm assuming you have to show your passport to cross the border. Would this be time consuming? (we would be on foot not in a car). Is it possible to walk into Gibraltar from across the border (sorry, I've no idea of the scale of the town) or would we need to use public transport. unofortunately the (limited number of) guidebooks don't cover anything on this so wondered if anyone had perhaps done this and could say whether it would be a good idea? Thanks Kay
We are staying in Malaga and hiring a car, and planning a day trip into Gibraltar during the first week of April. Any tips on where to park the car and is everything in walking distance? Our youngsters want to see the monkeys and any other tips for a whole day in Gibraltar will be welcome! Thanks!
Hello, I am not sure whether to choose Gibraltar or Malaga for a 3 day city break. Both are the approximately the same price etc, but I know very little of either city and wondered if anyone could perhaps give their thoughts on one or either of them as a city break destination? By the way we're a couple in our mid 30's. Look forward to hearing from someone! Nikki
Is it safe to go and see the apes and should i leave all valuables in the hotel? I have seen video and they seem very fast at pinching things off people, Does anyone ever get bitten? Is it true that cigarettes are cheaper there than in the airport at England so dont waste money on duty free, Are the hotels fully booked in October as my friend is going to drive down from Torrevieja to see us while we are there, Thanks for any help on this
Last time I was in Gibraltar I was able to catch a No 3 bus from the airport/frontier directly to the Rock Hotel. I believe the bus system has been reorganised. Is this journey still possible by bus?
Hi, my husband, daughter aged 1.5yrs and myself are planning a wek in Gibraltar in November around the second week of the month. Is this a ok? I have read that the weather could be wet and cold.
We will be in Gibraltar only one day as a stop on a cruise ship. Want to stay away from tours offered by ship. Looking for either a good taxi driver or mini bus operator to tour us. Husband is a WWII buff and would like to take in big gun and tunnels, and anything else related to that war. I'm intrested in the prehistoric caves, where a Neanderthal was found, I believe, or at least evidence of prehistoric peoples was found;cave paintings. Definitely NOT interested in the apes. Any suggestions or advice to find a reputable tour service and places not to miss within about a 6 hour timeframe is greatly appreciated. I'm told there are plenty of taxis around the dock -- true? How do I get a good one and what is a fair price?
I am staying at The Rock for a week from 4th September while my husband attends meetings.I have stayed so many times that I don't need to do tourist things and get a bit bored.I used to spend a lot of time with a Gibraltarian friend but sadly she died last year. Are there any coffee mornings I could attend to have a chat.I am a youngish 68.
Hi Could anyone advise if there is a return bus transfer service from Malaga Airport to Gibraltar/La Linea, that you can book on & pay per person? Many thanks.
Does anyone know if you can buy Lladro OR Nao in Gibraltar. Thanks

Hi, I am needing to find a way for my wedding party of 18 people to cross over from Spain into Gibraltar, and take us to our venue of the Caleta Hotel (not just drop us somewhere to catch a public bus!). I have heard that a few coach companies are allowed to do this, but I'm struggling to find details. Can anyone help? Katie
Is the border crossing with Spain open 24/7?
Can we take our own car up the rock, we are a large family, with a special needs child and would find the costs of cable car prices too much. Although we would love the kids to see the apes, we would like to see the caves etc. Any ideas would be most welcome.
Hi There, I am really struggling to find a Villa/apartment to rent in April. I seem to be finding the same property on different websites.
