Full description
Your 5-hour tour starts at the Blue Grotto. Made up of sea caverns on the southern coast of Malta, the Blue Grotto caverns are west of Wied iz-Zurrieq Harbor and across the small uninhabited islet of Filfla. Every day from sunrise until about 13:00 the cave's unique location allows sunlight to reflect in the water to create numerous shades of brilliant blue. Several caverns mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colors of the underwater plants. Other caverns show a deep dark shade of blue. If weather permits, you can do a 20 minute boat trip around the caves for an extra fee. You will then drive to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Vibrant, colorful Marsaxlokk Market offers a great opportunity to experience the local life. Browse the stalls where fresh fish and seafood are sold, and barter for honey, fruit jams, wine, vegetables, clothing, and souvenirs. You'll have free time to explore this picturesque market village before heading back.

Great day out although it was a bit disappointing that we didn't stop at the view point to see and take photos of the blue grotto from above. However, we were lucky with the weather and managed to go into the caves with a small boat at an extra cost of 8 euros. The boat trip was a bit rushed and meant that keen photographers like myself didn't have time to really appreciate it all. Marsaxlokk was nice but heaving with people and we were only given 90 minutes there which meant we didn't have time to eat. overall it was a nice day out and well worth the money but I found it rushed and our very talented guide gave a continuous running commentary in three consecutive languages which ended up being annoying. The trip was well organised and we managed to fit in a lot in such a short time so if you want to move at a slower pace then I suggest you opt to take a taxi or get a bus there so that you are free to leave when you want.

It was a good trip and although the guide was very knowledgable as we drove to the venues I would have liked more of a tour of Marsaxlokk. The market has become like markets at home and due to our bus break down the fish part of the market was closing by the time we arrived.

At first it was not so trivial to find the right pick up location, but once we located the coach the tour was smooth and well organized. Due to rainy and stormy weather we could only look the the grotto from the top plateau and could not get on the boats to drive close. You still get a good few from the top. I enjoyed all the random facts the tour guide shared during the bus ride.
