We have a full day coming up in Gibraltar and obviously want to visit the rock and see the apes. From research I've done it seems that the walk from the port to the cable car can take anything from 20 to 45 mins (depending who's answering ). However, I understand that lines for the cable car can be very long and I really don't want to be standing around when we could be walking.
Therefore, having reached the rock, is it feasible to then walk up to the point where the apes are? I am assuming it's much too far and steep to walk to the top. We're quite happy to take public transport if that's possible.
Failing that, if we take a taxi from the port, would it be feasible to go to the top of the rock by taxi and then walk down? If so, what sort of price could we expect to pay.
