Full description
After having been picked up from your hotel or the cruise terminal, you'll depart with your guide to the southern part of Malta. Your first stop includes a visit to the Tarxien Temple, which offers a unique collection of circa 3000 B.C. sanctuaries. You can admire stone idols and tablets, domestic animal carvings, altars and screens decorated with spiral designs and other patterns, and oracular chambers. Your tour then continues to the Hagar Qim and Mnejidra Megalithic Temples. Set in a rural area near the village of Zurrieq, this ancient temple which dates back to 3300 B.C. has the largest and heaviest megaliths of all the temple sites around the Maltese Islands. The Mnajidra Temple, less than 1 kilometer from Hagar Qim, offers unique views of the high cliffs that characterize the coast of this part of the island. Just before the fisherman's village of Marsaxlokk on your way back, you will discover Ghar Dalam. The Ghar Dalam Cave is a highly important site where the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta, which dates back 7,000 years ago, was discovered. The site is a huge 80-meter cavern which is opened to visitors, and the small annexed museum contains fossil remains of animals such as hippopotamus and volatives which were found in the cave and date back to the Pleistocene era. Following this last visit, your tour will end with you being returned to your point of origin.

Picked up and pampered for all the time spent together. Emilio, the guide, with his much knowledge and positive character has also dispensed us with information and anecdotes about the places present in the journey with the minivan together with the excellent driver. In just over four hours we visited the sites included in the tour and made stops at characteristic points. Knowing how the day went I would do the tour again without batting an eye.

Great day out; the guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. If you want to see the sites all in one go, this is the way to do it - picked up from my hotel and taken from site to site. If you were to do it yourself, you'd spend the week trying to work out how to get there yourself.

Anthony the guide was absolutely amazing. His knowledge was incredible and even when an offline question was thrown at him he responded with great answers! There was even some humor mixed in. I would highly recommend the tour and most highly recommend the guide.
