Gibilterra Comments

Gibilterra's a nice place. It can be costly but well worth the trip. The rock is scary to drive up though.
Gibilterra is very touristic and overpriced. But if you travel trough the south of Spain, it's a must to visit.
Gibilterra is an wonderful place and the people are very helpful and kind. The food is very good although prices are higher than some places in Spain, but the choice is fantastic! Drinks and cigarettes are greatly reduced as there is no VAT tax. The history of Gibraltar and all the fantastic sites to see is really worth a holiday there. You need the time to spend learning about the Rock and the people to get the full benefits. This is a warm and fascinating part of Britain.
Gibilterra's main problem seems to be the British expats found in every bar and restaurant complaining that it's crap and not like England (they do the same in Spain) and the low life Spanish cigarette smugglers stuffing half-dismantled mopeds with cigarettes on every street corner. The locals are extremely friendly; depending on the time of year, weather can be quite warm and humid. Shopping is extremely cheap if you avoid the establishments aimed at lightening tourists' wallets. If you expect Spanish food (like tapas) in a British country, be prepared to pay for it. Historically, the place is amazing. To see all of the tourist attractions (many by appointment with a military guide) you need at least a week in the country. To really enjoy the place (and the beaches) several weeks and an open mind are recommended.
Its a lot cheaper in Gibilterra now with the Euro rate. It is really worth the visit -- not just cheap fags and booze, even dining out is cheaper!
I expected a lot more! Gibilterra is not a nice place!
