Embark on a guided tour through the vibrant streets of Valletta will allow you to discover the beauty and charm of the capital city of Malta - a fortified city built by the Knights of St. John in 1566.

Admire imposing fortifications and bastions, amazing baroque palaces, marvelous churches, gorgeous gardens, and beautiful architecture ranging from mid-16th century baroque to modernism, Walk through the bustling streets of the city and discover its distinctive architecture. Visit the Upper Barrakka Gardens where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Grand Harbour. Afterward, some of the members of the group will have a guided tour of the Co-Cathedral dedicated to St. John the Baptist, whereas some will have some extra free time to roam around the streets of Valletta. The group then meets again at a designated time and place and proceed toward Republic Street. Before the end of the tour, enjoy an audio-visual show, which tells the dramatic story of the islands’ 7000-year history.

Unfortunately, we had bad weather with very heavy thunderstorms. Very rare by Maltese standards. Even our German travel guide had confirmed that. Despite all this, she managed to make the tour as exciting as possible. Lots of little anecdotes and with a laugh in between you can forget about the rain. Nobody can do anything about the weather.

Very interesting visit. Too bad the organization was less well

It's the pre-visit that wasn't great. We were supposed to be picked up at 8:30. We were ready but we didn't come until 9:05. The schedule has been changed. We should have received an email but we didn't. We were brought back 300m from the hotel where we had to wait for other French people to leave at 10:00 am! Too bad we were not given the appointment option at such a place. We could have slept an hour longer!! Otherwise, great French guide very interesting visit.

Fantastic guide(Rob) and enjoyed it so much. would highly recommend

This tour was a great intro to Valletta. Well probably return within the week to spend some more time there. Check your pick up times as we thought it was 8. The info is there for individual hotel pick up times on the app. Rob really was a great guide and handled everyone's individual request. 5 STAR. We had enough time to grab a pastizzi and espresso at cafe cordina. Delish! Highly recommend
