A fairly good half day tour which covered the places as described. Balance of time was not right, only 15 minutes at Mosta but a total of an hour at various craft places. At the end the guide told us to wait for the bus half an hour before the bus arrived. I could have seen the Cathedral and museum if I knew this, instead of waiting in the sun. The pickup in the morning was an hour going round the hotels and fairly hectic in places whilst the bus navigated exceptionally busy narrow streets, with lots of shouting and horning. Notwithstanding this, given the price for this tour, I can't really complain too much.

Tour was just so so. It is rated a three-star as my husband and I can take off at Valletta centre on our request which is not as schedule and which save us all the traffic problem, otherwise it is a two star rating. The tour guide is OK but time was not given enough on Mosta, like 15 minutes vs time spent on the Crafts Village was like 30 mins.

This was a nice half-day tour and was well-organized. The only thing that I would change is that it seemed very packed on the bus, and the tour was conducted in 3 languages. I think it would be more enjoyable to have smaller separate vehicles that aren't so packed and it would be less time-consuming than having to explain everything in 3 different languages. Our guide did explain things well, but I felt more like I was cattle being herded along the different areas. The Mosta cathedral was very nice, Mdina was interesting to visit and we had some free time there, and the Ta Qali Crafts Village was also nice to visit.
