Mr. NEVILLE accompanied us, in addition to telling us the history and the beauties that we encountered from time to time, with completeness of information and anecdotes on the situations that occurred, he also described the Malta of now. He was extremely kind because being us Italians, instead of letting us use the earphones, not being a very large group, he translated us into our language in a more than understandable way, thanks for your availability

I highly recommend this walking city tour of Valetta. I've been twice before but really wanted to learn more about the history of the city from a local rather than just the guide books. Elena my guide on this tour was top notch. She was professional, friendly and informative.

Excellent service and quality, Neville (our local guide) pleasant and knowledgeable of the island. If we return, we will definitely rely on them for further excursions. Definitely recommended!

The tour guide Irena was knowledgeable and professional. I enjoyed myself and would highly recommend.

Elena was excellent. Very knowledgeable and my daughter and I had an amazing time during the tour.
