Malta Highlights Half Day - 4 hour tour
Visiting Blue Grotto (optional boat trip), Hagar Qim Temples, Mdina Medieval City. (SE1)

Our tour begins with Mdina, the old capital of Malta and which will bring you back to the 9th century. This city was built on a plateau in the centre of the island, another
incredible accomplishment. From the bastion walls, you'll see the entire island. Around you is a maze of narrow alleyways that bring you face-to-face with amazing architecture.

The tour then heads to the south west and our next stop is the ancient megalithic
temples of Hagar Qim, one of many UNESCO listed Malta sites. Before entering the
temples we start at the new visitors centre which will help you understand how these magnificent temples where built over 5000 years ago! We then continue with our visit of the actual temple site. This temple has some of the largest and heaviest megaliths out of all the temple sites around the Maltese Islands, some slabs weighing a staggering 20 tons.

Our final stop is the stunning Blue Grotto. Here you can take a 25-minute boat trip which explores the incredible beauty of this natural wonder and is a "must-do" during this tour. The grotto and neighbouring system of sea caves are home to brilliant phosphorescent marine life, as you enter the caves the clarity of the azure sea is simply amazing. The boat trip is optional, allow 8/adults and 4 for children.

At this stage our tour comes to an end and we make our back to the cruise terminal and Valletta.
