I was kind of expecting to see a bunch of apes running around but learned they have about 9 different packs of about 20 Apes per pack so they are really scattered out near the middle and top of the rock besides what is commonly...More

Apes Den is what makes Gibraltar so unique. Not only is there historic significant to the Barbary Apes, but also just seeing the views from the Den was amazing. Do not touch the apes because they will bite!

Part of the Mountain visit is a must to go to see the apes. Actually you cannot avoid meeting them as already when the cable car arrives to the top of the mountain, a couple of fellows are hanging from the window... Be careful with...More

The whole monkey experience was brilliant. We used the cable car service to get to the top of the hill and really enjoyed the view. Upon arrival we were warned about the monkeys stealing your possessions and that they shouldn't be fed at all. We...More

I loved seeing the monkeys. They are very cute and you can get very close to them. They will steal food, or anything that looks like food, so keep your wits about you. People say they bite and scratch but if you use your common...More

The Apes Den is somewhat interesting. Depending on where you come from or what you have seen previously, the apes might be more or less appealing to you. Then Apes are in several places over the rock, so not necessary to go to the Den,...More

I had a previous bad experience with monkeys in Nusa Dua - Bali (stealing things, agressive sometimes), so here a had a pleasant surprise. The apes are friendly with humans, but no agressive at all. Nice to observe the groups and families interacting, playing, even...More

We went as a part of a day island tour. We learned about the supposed history of these approximately 200 apes which are really tailless Barbary macaques--a type of monkey. They could be seen along the walled streets at the top of the hill near...More

Was interesting to see the monkeys but be very careful and observant. They are quick to take advantage of a moment when you aren't paying attention to take your personal items while looking for food.

I would be careful with that. When we went there were some young baby ones and some of the adult apes were pretty aggressive. Remember even though they see people daily they are wild animals. Some will come up to you... More

You can get to the apes den easily by going up in the cable car or you can take a taxi trip up which takes in all the important sights, apes den included.
