Full description
Take this 5-hour archaeological tour and travel back to prehistoric times at Hagar Qim, Mnajdra, and the Ghar Dalam cave and museum in Malta. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Megalithic Temples of Malta date back 5,500 years and are the oldest free-standing stone structures in the world. Continue to the fragile temples of Hagar Qim, located on a ridge capped in soft globigerina limestone on the southern edge of Malta. You will also explore the neighboring Mnajdra temples, which are considered possibly the best example of Maltese megalithic architecture still standing. The surrounding area is typical of Mediterranean garrigue (low level scrub) in its starkness, and has been designated as a Heritage Park. A few hundred meters from the temple you will discover the Hamrija Tower, one of the 13 watchtowers built by Grand Master Martin de Redin, one of the legendary Knights of Malta.

    Actual pick up, travel & tour was good (bit rushed, but good), but finding out the pick up time was a time consuming nightmare! I emailed, whatsapp'd and finally rang the company the evening before to find out the time of our pick up as I'd heard nothing other than a GYG email saying pick up would be began 7.30 - 8.30 am. I later got a WhatsApp reply saying my pick up was 8.55am, so I'm glad I didn't get up at the crack of dawn! The email confirmation from the actual company didn't come through until 7.05am. Yes the pick up was nearly 2 hours away, but we had to get up and ready and walk to the pick up point. I was expecting contact the day before, not 2 hours before For the tour, our guide was lovely and informative, but I'd have liked a little time to wander round Haqar Qim/Mnajdra as there are walks along the cliffs & other little bits to see. A little bit of free time would have been good to use to look at your leisure. I did feel a bit rushed if I'm honest.

    Originally I had booked the tour in German, but I received an email in the morning that the German-speaking guide had unfortunately fallen ill and whether I would also take part in the English one. Since this wasn't a problem for me, I agreed. The pick-up at the hotel was a bit chaotic, since I was first taken to another hotel in a minibus, had to wait there with a larger group for another bus and part of this group could only get on the "German-speaking" bus at a third hotel . My Guide Mark was really great. You could understand everything perfectly because he spoke slowly and clearly. He was able to tell many exciting stories and it was a very nice, informative day with him and the group.

    Extremely interesting visit even with children from 8-10 years old. We had requested the visit in French. as we were the only ones (3) to be French in the group, our guide made his comments in English then a summary in French adapted to the 10 year old youngster and gave us additional explanations inside the temples. Our grandson was thrilled! All three sites are must-sees. Our guide Marc was very good.
