We really enjoyed the self-guided tour. You saw a lot of Valletta and solved small puzzles. So it wasn't "just" a sightseeing tour. You set the pace yourself, and you can also make additional stops. Tip: the first 2/3 stations are outside the city wall and can easily be covered with an e-scooter. To recommend :)

First time in Malta and I loved the city, great flexibility to take the guided tours and also do the self-guided tours at my choice.Good city’s navigation and I manage to never get lost. Can’t wait to join their other walking tours again!
