Great guide who explained everything well. For me this was the best introduction to Valletta

There was a lot crammed in - the Triton Fountains, the government building, the chapel behind it, a walk through town, a visit to the Cathedral then on to The Malta Experience, which I didn't know was also included. The tour lasted about four hours and it was great to be picked up and dropped off to and from the hotel. Excellent value for money and tour guide was good. Best bit - the cathedral. It really is something to behold.

This is a good tour for a quick overview of Valletta. Could have used a bit more time and more of the highlights of the city and there are many. Hannah our guide was great, even though she had to go back and forth in two different languages, she did it very smoothly.

We were escorted by a well informed and eloquent guide. The tour was well paced and gave us a excellent overview of the role the Knights of the Order of St John had in determining the history and character of the Malta and its people.

Vanessa gave me his tour even though I was he only person attending. That was excellent as often companies cancel if numbers aren't up.
She knew her history and then took me round at an appropriate pace.
Really good orientation for my first day in valetta

I wasn't on the trip - I booked it for my grandparents for my grandad's 80th birthday - however they came home from holiday and he immediately filled me in on their trip with you guys, which they absolutely were over the moon with. They loved all the places they were taken, and couldn't speak highly enough of their guide for the day. You were also very accommodating when they thought they may have to change the date (turned out they didn't need to but said you were very good and willing to help re-arrange if needed.) Thank you very much :) Highly recommended :)

I enjoyed this tour seeing artefacts, historic buildings and so much more. Our tour guide made everything so engaging and it was a pleasure to go with the flow as we walked through Valetta visiting the gardens, church, palace etc. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and glad to have undertaken this tour.
