The commentary on the boat was very much inaudible, so barely learnt any history. The tour guys also did not even bother to introduce themselves when picking us up. We felt it was very much overpriced and not personal for the price paid. The cruise itself was very short, spent the same amount of time exploring Sliema on our own. There are plenty of other tour groups in Malta, so I would suggest making your own way to Sliema which is easy to get to by bus or taxi and not that expensive, then going on a cruise.

Would have liked a more extended sightseeing tour, with stops. Was short and by car only.

The guide for the bus portion tried hard to make up for the inaudible commentary on the cruise portion.

I feel it wasnt worth Euros 30 for this tour as the boat cruise itself cost Euros 10 so the pick-up / drop-off and drive around town was grossly over-valued at Euros 20!! The tour guide didnt even stay until the end of our tour - she asked to be dropped off at a bus stop before the tour ended. AWFUL, waste of money!!
