Gozo 1-Day Hop-On Hop-Off City Sightseeing Bus Tour

1. Gozo 1-Day Hop-On Hop-Off City Sightseeing Bus Tour

This city sightseeing bus tour will help you to discover Gozo – one of the most untouched islands in the Mediterranean. Explore its picturesque and tranquil towns and villages, where life has barely changed for hundreds of years and many traditions are still upheld. This new open-top bus tour of Gozo starts from the picture postcard Mgarr Harbor. The route takes about 2.5 hours with 14 stops, visiting all the major attractions that this beautiful island has to offer. Hop on and off at your leisure at conveniently located stops along the route. On one side of Mgarr Harbor is Fort Chambray, built by the Knights of St. John in 1749, which majestically and defiantly guards the harbor from its vantage point, while the church dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes is a prominent landmark overlooking the harbor. Enjoy 360 degree panoramic views from the top deck of an open top bus. Hop off at the capital of Victoria, with its famous Citadel which has been at the heart of the island’s activities since Neolithic times and has been aptly called the crown of Gozo. Lying precisely in the center of the island, Victoria is the island’s most populated area. Tide the bus to Republic Street, the main street flanked by shops, banks, and restaurants. Here you can dine, watch a performance in one of the theaters, or take the opportunity to buy souvenirs. Take timeout at the Bishop’s Chancery, Il-Mall, or Rundle Gardens, an oasis of peace in the center of the busy town that houses a variety of local and imported trees. The sightseeing bus tour of Gozo visits the fascinating and ancient Ggantuja Temples and Fungus Rock. For such a small island Gozo also has a high concentration of churches, including the famed Xewkija Rotunda Church, which has a capacity of 3000 – enough to hold the entire population of Xewkija village.

Great way to see the island without having to pay for private transportation to different destinations. We did the blue/North route which took about 180 min, but make sure to ask for a map and a timetable when you check-in at the stand because the times and stops are slightly different than on the ad. Also I suggest doing some research in advance about which stops you would like to do, because time only permits approx. 1-2 stops in a day. But overall great flexibility on where you want to stop, interesting commentary about each stop, and a relaxing ride that gives you an overview of the island.

I really enjoyed this trip and it was an added value for not having rented a car to visit the island of Gozo. The route goes through the most important tourist spots and we actually have to choose which ones to stop at because we can't stop for 45 minutes in all of them. I'm just sorry because there was a considerable delay in one of the stops I made and I was forced to cancel a next stop that I had in mind and that I would have liked to have done because there wouldn't be time.

Very nice drivers and very available for everything and always on time as per the schedule. The tour is really nice but even more beautiful is the possibility to get off in the stage you decide to visit on foot (historic cities or beaches for a swim and more) and stay there as long as you want by getting back on another bus of the same company to continue the journey. path. Also interesting is the guiding voice of the earphones which explains many things.

The bus shows you the most relevant points of Gozo. At each stop there is a sign with the timetable, great for planning. Highly recommended to see the island if you have little time.

Very enjoyable day out. All buses were punctual. Commentary was clear and informative.
