Full day tour to Valletta, Hagar Qim,
Marsaxlokk & Mdina
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
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.
0800hrs/End between 1600hrs and 1700hrs
Full day tour to Gozo Island
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,
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, €7
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.
