Meet your guide at the Mdina Main Gate by the bridge and start your tour with an introduction on the city's historical background. You will then proceed to discover the “Citta' Notabile”, the Noble City, its medieval name which describes it best it was home then, as now, to Malta's noble families. You will see the impressive palaces, churches, and convents that line the narrow medieval streets. As you wind your way through the narrow streets you will be thrown back in time.

    The guide was easy to locate and the tour started on time. It was a small group and in the 2 hours of the tour the guide gave us a glimpse of the fascinating history of the city. in particular she picked out details in the architecture which I would otherwise have walked by but which embellished the commentary. These observations took us through details of the various occupations and development of the city to locations seen in Game of Thrones. Altogether a very rounded and interesting tour in the company of a knowledgeable and eloquent guide which is a good foundation from which to further explore Mdina and Rabat.

    This was a small group of 8 people. The tour guide, Visnja was very knowledgeable and took time to answer any and all questions. The tour was meant to be 2 hours but she did not rush it and spent more time with us. It is the best European walking tour we have ever experienced, and we have done a few.
