From Malta: Gozo Day Trip Including Ggantija Temples

2. From Malta: Gozo Day Trip Including Ggantija Temples

During this full-day tour, experience Gozo's magnificent heritage, visit key landmarks, and discover hidden gems, all while relishing the impressive beauty and distinctive charm this tiny island has to offer.  This tour starts with a short 20-minute ferry crossing to Gozo, which immediately sets the pace to Gozo’s unique atmosphere. The first stop is the megalithic temples of Ggantija, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This impressive archaeological site dates to c. 3600-3200 BC and is believed to be the oldest freestanding monument in the world, predating Stonehenge in England, and the Pyramids of Egypt. The etymology of “Ggantija” is derived from the Maltese word for giant (“ggant”) because it was believed the site was built by a race of giants.  This mythological idea makes sense considering that the temples are constructed from megaliths (massive limestone blocks) measuring more than 5 meters in length and weighing over 50 tons. Afterward, head towards the medieval fortified city known locally as “Cittadella” (The Citadel).  Located within the capital city of Gozo (Victoria), with its distinctive skyline and imposing military architecture, this ancient, fortified city stands out as Gozo’s major landmark, a beacon visible from all over the Island. Next visit is the delightful sea inlet known as Xlendi Bay, located at the end of a deep, lush ravine, which was once a riverbed and surrounded by picturesque steep cliffs. The bay is now on the must-visit list of most day-trippers to the Island.  Xlendi’s small but lively promenade is busy at all times of the day, with a variety of cafes, restaurants, and a handful of souvenir shops. Though seemingly bursting with activity during summer, Xlendi bay remains a refreshingly quiet place even at the height of the season. Your final stop is Dwejra. Situated on the western shore of the island of Gozo this area is a geological and ecological haven. Its surroundings offer a blend of geology, landscape, fauna, habitats, shoreline, seascapes, archaeology, flora, and history, making this an experience to remember. Dwejra is also known for its Inland Sea, a small bay surrounded by high cliffs and connected by an impressive 65-meter-long natural tunnel that opens out into the open sea, a truly fascinating natural formation that evokes awe and leaves a striking impression. After a day full of experiences and unique memories, take a short ferry crossing back to Malta and return to your hotel.

This is the second time that I booked this activity. The pick up was smooth. The tour was nicely organized in order to make sure that the tourists are at ease. The coordination from pick ups, transfer to speed boats, to the cars, back to speed boats and then drop off to the hotel was perfect! The lunch that was served as a part of the tour was also nice [except for the vegetarian option - please serve something better than just potatoes and salad ;)]. The person who drove us around Gozo (Mr. Goe Keegne - apologies if the name is incorrect) was very nice and helpful. He showed us around the places and told us some history about Gozo. One of the best ways to cover Gozo in a day from Malta.

fantastic tour of Gozo with an exceptional company. very friendly and everything is so organised. We had great fun our trip was brilliant because of our driver Joe Keegan. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. very friendly a credit to your tours thanks Joe.

Great trip. Everything was smooth. People were nice. Lunch was ok. Guide was great, car also. In winter take your windjacket with you. Superb way to explore the Gozo island. Definetly buy the boat trip, 4 euro per person, to cliffs with pink coralls

The blue lagoon is paradise. Although we were there at the end of December at the beginning of January, the turquoise-blue sea was 18 degrees Celsius, outside temperature 20, we still went swimming because you can't resist this water...

The tour showed the history of the megalithic temples in the Maltese archipelago
