This was an excellent guided tour. There was plenty of food along with some very interesting information about Valletta. I highly recommend our guide (I apologise I did not catch the name) very knowledgeable and had a number of local in-sites. To our guide - you should sleep well tonight, a job well done!!!!

Learned a lot of interesting facts and stories about Valetta that are not in the standard tourist info brochures. The food was delicious. The guide was great and we had the in-ear audio to listen to her, so one could follow all shared info even on busy streets or if lagging bit behind to take a photo.

The tour was great. A real insight into the history of Valetta, with a local expert. The food was filling (value for money), but a good mix of tasty cuisine focused on local independent cafes. The guide was a treat with a smile and happiness that you could only share.

Matthew was an excellent guide full of information on Maltese food and the history of Malta. Thoroughly worth every euro.

This was an excellent introduction to the history of Valletta, both interesting and entertaining.
