Full day tour to Valletta, Mdina & Birgu
Our first visit during this tour is Valletta, 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.
Our next stop 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 in 1566 has 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.
After a lunch stop we then head back to the harbour area and the Three
Cities. We first visit the Gardjola
Gardens, here you can
admire the magnificent view from the Vedette (watch tower used by the
Knights). We continue with the tour of this area stopping next at Birgu.
Birgu is the oldest city of the Grand
Harbour. In 1532 the
Knights of St. John first settled in this area and by the time they had left Malta in 1798 it had become the main maritime
city of the Maltese
Islands. Our walking
tour will take us to the heart of the city, the narrow streets and quaint
alleys known as the 'collacchio', an area of old Palazzos which were the original
Auberges occupied by the Knights'. Our tour ends here and we make our way
Start at 0900hrs/End at 1700hrs
Full day tour to Ghar Dalam, Tarxien, Hypogeum, Hagar Qim, Blue Grotto &
We will be touring the south of the island during this tour starting at the
Blue Grotto. This picturesque grotto and its neighboring system of sea
caverns mirrors the brilliant phosphorescent colors of underwater flora. Boat
trips, which take around 25 minutes allow you to explore these grottoes and
sea caverns along this stretch of coast (he boat trip is not included in the
overall price as it operates subject to weather conditions, allow eur8).
We continue with our tour to the Hagar Qim temple site. 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. Our guide will unfold the history
related to this temple which dates back to 3300BC.
Our next stop includes a visit to Marsaxlokk. This quaint fishing village on
the south coast is characterized by low lying buildings and the colorful
traditional fishing boats known as the 'luzzu'. A small local market lines
the seafront and for those that enjoy fresh fish there are plenty of good
quality restaurants to choose from. You will have free time for lunch.
In the afternoon we continue with our tour and our first stop includes a
visit to Tarxien. Tarxien was the first temple site to be excavated
scientifically and it offers a unique collection of circa. 3000 BC
sanctuaries. Stone idols and tablets, domestic animals carved in relief,
altars and screens decorated with spiral designs and other patterns, oracular
chambers and riches enhance the attractions of these temples.
Our next stop is at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hal Saflieni Hypogeum.
This unique ancient underground monument is 12 metres below street level. It
consists of a network of passages, chambers and caves cut on three levels,
similar to the interior of a megalithic temple. The most impressive part of
the temple is the "Holy of Holies" and one of the most important
prehistoric masterpieces known as the "Sleeping Lady" was also
Our tour continues to Ghar Dalam. The Ghar
is a highly important site as it was here that the earliest evidence of human
settlement on Malta
dating back 7,000 years, was discovered. This huge cavern is 144 metres deep,
but only the first 80 metres are open to visitors. The different layers
contained the fossil bones of dwarf elephants, hippopotami, red deer, fox,
wolf, micro-mammals and birds which date back to the Pleistocene Age (180,000
years ago) and the end of the last Ice Age(16,000 years ago). Our tour ends
here and we make our way 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, visit stunning sites such as Calypso's 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 and liquors. 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
is 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.
