2 Day EXPLORER Customised Tour

The times that appear in the brackets indicate the tours (start/end) times.
These times may change depending on your pick up location.

Day 1:
Valletta, Hagar Qim, Marsaxlokk & Mdina (0900hrs/1700hrs)
This tour covers three different periods of Malta's golden history in one day.
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 Qim Temple 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.

Day 2: Gozo Defender Jeep Tour (0730hrs/1700hrs)

You will be picked up for a transfer to the Gozo ferry terminal. The short crossing to Gozo takes 25 min en route passing the island of Comino.

Our Jeep tour will include visits to popular sites such as Dwejra Bay, Victoria and the Citadel, Xlendi Bay and Marsalforn plus other sites not normally included during a normal tour of Gozo including the stunning Red Sands of Ramla Bay and pretty villages of Qala, Nadur and Xghara.

This tour is suitable for those that enjoy a touch of adventure and enjoy exploring the scenic routes. The tour is a lot of fun, can be a little bit bumpy at times, but does offer you the opportunity to see many of Gozo's hidden charms all in one day.
