Excellent tour of Valletta. Antonio, our guide, provided a thorough introduction to this city and Malta. From history to culture, our 3 hour tour was fascinating and very enjoyable. A tour with a knowledgeable guide cannot be missed as you leave the tour feeling you know the place. Highly recommend this tour.

Ben was a great knowledgable guide. Time was spent well exploring the City. He was always looking for shade to keep us all cooler it the hot temperatures. Would definitely recommend, an easy way to find out about the history of Malta and the city.

I forgot the name of our tour guide, but she is very good. Our date of this activity was on 25/06/22. I enjoyed this activity. But if we have more free time in Mdina and the San Anton Gardens that would be even better.

It was a great curse, many beautiful sites to see. The boat was a bit late but the visit with the recorded comments was so interesting. I'd recommend to sit by the right hand side of the boat

Very informative tour by Janet. Lots of local knowledge that we found helpful for our days in Malta.
