On the way there, you will discover different styles of architecture, including Siculo-Norman palaces and other baroque buildings of great historical importance. Time stands still in this ‘Silent City’ which is a film-maker’s paradise. Leaving Mdina through Greeks’ Gate, we stop at the early Christian catacombs in Rabat before proceeding to the cliffs at Dingli. After lunch we will visit the San Anton botanical gardens situated near the Presidential Palace, which you will be able to admire from outside. We shall also spend time at the crafts centre at Ta’ Qali. At the end of the tour, allow us to astound you with Mosta’s majestic dome, one of Europe’s largest.

* A traveler said: "There was a lot of bang for the buck. Our tour guide was a native Maltese lady who was terrific. The pickup to ferry perfect and the short ferry ride fun. Nice bus touring lovely Gozo sites. Just enough time. Good lunch. At ferry we opted to take the new Go Fast boat back to Valletta which is 1st class and only 45 minutes. I think it was 7 or so Euros and well worth it"

Tour to Malta’s sister island of Gozo. After a twenty-minute ferry crossing, on setting foot in Gozo you will notice that although both islands are similar in history and development Gozo has a character entirely of its own. Gozo, which is a three hilled island, is greener and more picturesque than Malta. During this excursion, we visit Dwejra, the citadel in Victoria, the bay of Xlendi, and we also stop at a spectacular cultural experience depicting Gozo’s long and colourful history. Free time for shopping will also be given – Gozo is renowned for its woollen goods and handmade lace.

* A traveler said: "Was excellent. Our guide and driver was excellent, flexible and patient. We were able to cover everything in the itinerary, as it was a private tour with just 3 of us. It's an 8 hour tour, and admissions to sights and museums are not included but they are not very expensive. We had a heavy breakfast and skipped lunch, taking time out for lunch may mean that you might not finish the tour in 8 hours. The driver was very kind and kept his cool even in the traffic of Malta. He even took us to a petting zoo not mentioned in the itinerary which overjoyed my young daughter. Recommended if you have limited time to see Malta and are a group of 3-4. Well worth it."
