We have had a bad experience from minute zero, they made a mistake at the meeting point, which was in Tarifa, and we arrived half an hour late for everything, the guides left and left us alone in Gibraltar, no guide, no recommendations, absolutely nothing. the dolphin sighting is not worth much because you hardly see anything, apart from the fact that everything is in English, in total we spent 4 hours on the excursion, you don't have time for anything, we were left wanting to visit the nature reserve, too I have to say that the customer service has been the best, they respond immediately and they have reimbursed us half of what we paid. Even so, we are very disappointed since it was a gift that we and my daughter and I gave to my husband and it was a real disaster.
