About
Hello my name is Carl Mesilio I am a 49 year old Gibraltarian who has been born and raised in Gibraltar. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I have been a private tour guide ever since I was trained and certified by the Gibraltar Tourist Board in 2004, providing my clients with a professional and experienced excursion around Gibraltar. My Rock tours are provided in a luxurious eight seater minivan with air-conditioning and in superb condition. We can provide you with the highest quality tour guide service in Gibraltar. We ensure you can see all the sights in Gibraltar whilst learning the history, culture and development of the Rock. The Rock Tour with us is by far the most comfortable and luxurious way to discover Gibraltar with your very own local personal tour guide. A person who can share a wealth of local knowledge with you, the legends, the best sites and the best panoramic stops so that you may take a myriad of holiday photos to treasure for the rest of your life

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked the 3.5 hour Private Intermediate tour and Carl was our guide. With limited time in Gibraltar, this was a perfect way to see as much as we could. We parked in Spain and Carl met us across the border. He took us in his nice, clean Mercedes van to all the main sites on the Rock, exactly how he had shared in his email communications. His knowledge of Gibraltar was immense as he has lived there his whole life. I highly recommend this tour especially if you only have half a day to see Gibraltar.

Great communication with our guide Karim. Pick up to drop off was helpful. Lots of good information. Probably the only way to see Gibraltar’s highlights in a short visit.

Our Private Tour with Dale was One of the best experiences ever.

He was knowledgeable, very funny and made the whole tour interesting.

His interaction with the Barbary Apes was incredible which enabled us to have interaction but respecting their space, The 100 Ton Gunp, Europa Point, the Skywalk and the Great Siege Tunnels all amazing,

Highly recommend doing a Private Tour. Worth every penny.

Our friend booked this tour during our day in Gibraltar while docking on our cruise. Chris our tour guide was one of the best tour guides I have ever met in Europe. His family has lived in Gibraltar for almost 300 years and his depth of knowledge showed. He answers everyone one of my questions clearly and knowledgeable.

My parents were quite impressed as English is not there first language but even they were able to leave the tour with a wealth of knowledge.

I could not recommend this tour enough. Ask for Chris and you will have a wonderful day and experience.

We booked this private half day tour for last Saturday of September. Talked by phone to confirm all details, great customer service!
We drove down from the Algarve for a 3pm start.
Unfortunately we were stopped at the border and not allowed to enter Gibraltar because Spanish border officials determined we did not have stamps in our passports showing when we entered the EU! We came from UK by cruise ship to Lisboa and never had our passports stamped. So sad we were not able to do the tour!
The staff and owner were very understanding and refunded the cost less a reasonable amount which was very much appreciated and unexpected as this was not their fault. Great company to do business with!

Carl was great. Met us promptly, very informative, and tailored the tour to our needs. Communicating with Inside Out is easy, via Whatsapp and email. Don't look any further for a personal tour of Gibraltar.
