I am terrified of heights so was a bit apprehensive about getting on the cable cars however once on it was a very smooth ride to the top of the rock and I felt secure. Once at the top we were greeted by a little ape. Some people were frightened by them but they were very friendly considering everyone puts their cameras in their faces and crowd around them. Once at the top the view was amazing. We spent about an hour or so up there taking in the scenery. It's a must see when in Gibraltar. The cable car back down was no problem again very smooth. We didn't have to queue too long to go up and got there about 10am.

Be aware that there can be queues but they do move quite quickly. It's pricey and there is little if no interaction with the staff who are not the most inspiring or customer friendly. You can just take a single fare and walk down but there is little difference in the price. It's not wheelchair friendly but people with some limited mobility should be able to access the restaurant with the mountain top views. Keep your back packs to your front, do not carry anything in a plastic bag, be careful with spectacles and mobile phones as the apes are very intelligent and will try and grab anything they can.

The Cable Car offered wonderful views of Gibraltar - however, they would have been even better if the windows of the cable car had been cleaned! They were greasy and not very clean at all!

The operator packed us into the car like a pack of sardines. But the views were nice! Recommend buying tickets online in advance to avoid the queue
