    The tour was interesting. The guide was very nice. The only thing that bothered me a little was the difference between English and Russian. So much more information was given to English speakers and many things were forgotten to speak in Russian. One of our company did not speak English and we had to translate a lot ourselves.

Very beautiful day which allows to visit the whole island without getting tired and in a very efficient way. We loved our guide Steve. Only downside but very light, no great cuisine for lunch. I recommend the chicken with mushrooms as a priority. To do!

Very nice experience! Our driver, Charlie, was the best! He really has a passion and proud of informing others about Gozo during the trip. We are very grateful and wish him the best!

It was such an amazing day of fun, adventure and great company. Our Guide was great and super funny. We had so much fun with him! I recommend everyone this kind of adventure!!

Perfect excursion. The guide was very good at telling everything about the complicated history. Due to the small number of tourists, Covid-19 precautions were followed.

Much better than expected. The guide explained everything so that was easy to understand.
