Full day tour to Valletta, Hagar Qim,
Marsaxlokk & Mdina
This tour covers three different periods of Malta's golden history in one
Our first visit during this tour is the capital, Valletta which was built by the Knights of
St. John in 1566. Here we include the Barraka Gardens which offer stunning
views of the Grand Harbour and magnificent fortifications, a walk down Triq
Repubblika where you can admire numerous historical buildings built by the
Knights of St. John including the Auberges, the Grand Masters Palace and St.
John's Co. Cathedral, the church of the Order and also home to Caravaggio's
masterpiece "Beheading of St. John" amongst other treasures.
After our tour of the capital we will then visit the south west of the island
where the ancient Hagar
site stands. Set in a rural area this ancient temple is particularly
interesting as it has the largest and heaviest megaliths out of all the
temple sites around the Maltese
Islands, some slabs
weighing a staggering 20 tons. This temple dates back to 3300BC.
We then continue to our next stop and an opportunity to experience a little
local culture when visiting the pretty traditional fishing village of Marsaxlokk.
Marsaxlokk is a quaint fishing village and is characterized by low lying
buildings and the colorful traditional fishing boats known as the 'luzzu'. A
small market lines the seafront and if you would like to sample fresh
Mediterranean fish there are numerous local restaurants to choose from (other
cuisine is available).
Our final stop during this tour will be in Mdina. Mdina is built on a plateau
in the centre of the island, the city's old Baroque buildings, cathedral and
magnificent bastion walls dominate the rural skyline. Mdina, once the capital
of Malta until the modern
city of Valletta was built, had many names
including Melite(Roman occupation), Medina
(Arabic occupation), Citta Notabile and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today it is also
referred to as the Silent
City since it inspires
tranquillity at any time of the day or night. The only way to really
experience and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow
streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from the high
bastion walls. Our tour at this point comes to an end and we head back.
Start at 0800hrs/End
between 1600hrs and 1700hrs
Full day tour to Gozo
We start our tour to Gozo with a pleasant 25 minute ferry crossing.
The charm of Gozo is apparent the moment you arrive there. Greener, more
rural and smaller than Malta.
Our tour is a combination of scenic spots, historical sites and local
culture. We feature most of the main highlights during our tour including the
oldest free standing megalithic structures in the world, known as Ggantija
Temples. We will pass through quaint sleepy villages that characterise Gozo's
unique charm and visit stunning sites such as Calypso
Cave which offers magnificent views
over the red sands of Ramla
Bay. Just before lunch
we will also stop at the Fontana Cottage where you can sample local
delicacies such as sun dried tomatoes, olive pate, local cheeslets, wines,
liquors and anything made locally. You will also have some time for a spot of
shopping for popular buys such as lace. Free time for lunch will be at the
pretty bay of Xlendi.
After lunch we continue our tour with visits to one of the most photographed
sites in Gozo, Dwejra
Bay. Here you can take
an optional boat trip (the boat trip is not included in the overall price as
it operates subject to weather conditions, eur7 paid on the day) from the
land locked sea(Inland Sea). Our final stop
before we head back to the ferry for Malta
includes a visit to the main town on Gozo,
Victoria and The Citadel. The
Citadel is a small fortified city that dominates the heights above Victoria. The history
of The Citadel dates back to an early period when Gozo was under Roman and Arab
occupation. The views from its fortified walls offer panoramas of the whole
island. Our tour comes to an end and we make our way back to the ferry
terminal for our return to the main island.
