Founded by the Romans, for almost two centuries it served as the administrative and political capital of the Maltese Islands. It is to this day the seat of Malta 's episcopacy. 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 neighboring suburb, Rabat is just a stone’s throw away. There you will make your way through the old quarter and enjoy Maltese vernacular architecture.

We were their on the 25th of June. It was such an interesting place to visit especially for those who love historical backgrounds. St. Paul’s history was very interesting. My hubby and I didn’t know that Malta is a very catholic country until we get their. The tourist guide, didn’t even ask his name, explained everything clearly and in order. I strongly recommend this place.

The knowledge and experience level of your guide was really good and very professional. Yet, the clarity and the pronunciation of English are not that good as we were strangling to understand some words that were critical for the tour. This is a general problem we faced in Malta and at "Get your Guide" as well.

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.
