great experience to visit Malta. pity that the time in Malta is not their strong point. We waited for the bus more than 40 minutes at 2 places. suddenly, there is not enough time to visit everything

Be careful, no one picks you up instead of meeting you have to look for all the buses / minibuses that park nearby if not they leave without you

very practical to visit malta, you go up or down, the tour is quite long especially if you take a long break in valetta dc to start early

Too bad that the last ride is too early in the afternoon. There would still be time to visit other places before evening!

The trip was interesting and informative. The guide told very clearly and interestingly.
