Full description
Start your tour with a visit to Mosta, a central town famous for its Rotunda church. Also known as the Mosta Dome, is the third largest unsupported dome in the whole world. Marvel at its amazing diameter, and learn about its incredible history. Next, stop in the town of Ta'Qali, once a British WWII outpost and now a village for local handicrafts. Here, watch local artisans at work blowing elaborate glass art pieces, intricately assembling silver jewelry and much more. Take the chance to pick up treasures to remind you of your Malta visit. Then, visit Mdina, built on a plateau in the center of the island. Take in the city's old Baroque buildings, cathedral and magnificent bastion walls. Learn about the many names of Mdina, today also known as the Silent City due to its constant tranquility. Explore the quaint alleys, narrow streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from the high bastion walls. Finally, visit Valletta, Malta's capital city and World Heritage Site. See buildings from the 16th century onwards, built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as Knights Hospitaller. Walk through the bustling streets and to Barracca Gardens for a breathtaking panorama of the Grand Harbor. Visit St. John's Co-Cathedral to see The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist by Caravaggio.

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.

Great Tour

This tour was terrific. A great way to see a few places in a day. Timing at each place was efficient. No wasting time. Our tour guide did an awesome job. It was bilingual in English and Russian. She did an amazing job. Very informative and direct facts. A great tour.

Nice ride!

The guide was friendly, explanations were not very provided but quality. I recommend if you do not have much time (they pick you up and take you back to the hotel), otherwise you will probably prefer to avoid the "forced shop stage" or the "5D movie" to spend more time in Mdina or Valletta.
