1)Can anyone recommend a tour guide for GIB? (do you need one?)
2) Is there a list of kosher restaurants? Are they any good?
Will be driving from Seville for the day.
There's kosher food but not really restaurant-material IINM

I walked into 1 restaurant that Google found as "kosher" and the guy behind the counter was like, "Well, let's just say we don't have any certification." Nice of him not to trick me.

1. we did not use a tour guide just the map from the hotel. the rock, the marina, the jewish cemetary ( did not visit) , the shuls.
2. http://www.jewishgibraltar.com/restaurant.php 2 listed. i went to tamid. they dont take CC. food was ok if you really need it but not worth the price. either use the deli or the bakery. just prepare for sticker shock at the conversion rate unless you're using Euros.
also, super friendly people. would definitely recommend staying for shabbos. you can email the "board" to have someone host you. they might take a while to get back to you so you should call.
drive from Seville is great. look for windfarms. very cool. after shabbos we drove up the "costa del sol" to Granada. beautiful.

I took a tour guide and he was great.
You don't need one specifically if you have a car, but be prepared to climb up the rock with your car

http://www.buzzfeed.com/abagg/watch-this-monkey-steal-and-eat-a-sandwich-right-out-of-a-to?bffbvid&utm_term=4ldqpj5#.bny0Z2Zg7 Amazing!

Ha! I experienced that first-hand, although in my case two of them grabbed the knapsack off my back and started emptying it. Lesson learned - if you take a bag or knapsack, hold or wear it in front of you - they don't attempt to steal that way.


Ape eating our food.

why not just take the cable car up

+1. There's a parking lot at the base.

You won't be able to cover some interesting spots on the rock.
Ex. The old Jewish cemetery and many more.

I will try to find his card.
I remember that on his business card he lists TripAdvisor so he probably can be looked up there
