Starting at 0740hrs - 0900hrs
Return at 1700hrs - 1800hrs
We transfer to the Cirkewwa terminal located in the north of Malta to board our ferry for a short ferry crossing to the island of Gozo. During the crossing, you will pass the smaller island of Comino and you will notice a top of the high rugged cliffs stands the Santa Maria Fort which was used during the movie 'Count of Monte Cristo' (filmed 2002). Our ferry crossing lasts only 25 minutes and on arrival, we join the guide and tour transport for our tour of Gozo.

You will immediately notice that Gozo is much greener and has certain characteristics making it different from the larger island of Malta. We start our tour with a visit to the shrine of Ta'Pinu (dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu). This important church is set in a stunning location, on the edge of a ridge in open countryside and providing beautiful views of the surrounding area. The church is also linked to a number or 'miracles' which you will discover during your visit.

We continue to our next stop and the area known as 'Dewjra'. Here you will see three interesting geological sites including Dwejra Bay and the Inland Sea which is a lagoon of seawater which has access to the open sea through a small arch-like tunnel. You can take a small boat trip around the inland sea and through the tunnel (cost of the boat trip is not included in the tour rate, allow €4 per person if you would like to do this and if time allows). Another of Dwejra's geological delights is the Admiral's Rock or as it is better known, Fungus Rock. A special plant is said to grow here which has various medical cures for conditions such as dysentery, bleeding and impotence.

Just before our lunch break, we will visit the Ta’ Dbiegi Crafts Village where you can view local handmade pottery, mouth-blown glass, Gozo lace and silver filigree. This shortstop is ideal if you want to pick up a souvenir or just a short rest stop before you settle down for lunch.

After lunch in the main city which is locally called Rabat but you are likely to know it as Victoria, we will take a short walk through this busy little city to join a trackless train for a short trip up the steep hill to the fortified Cittadella. The Cittadella is a small walled city within the city of Victoria, only a small number of families still live within the walls. This historical fortified city has recently undergone major restoration works and you can visit the new visitors centre, explore quaint alleys or stroll around the walls enjoying amazing views of the island from the high bastions.

The final part of our tour of Gozo will take us through some of the villages, en route we will stop at the Qala Belvedere. This stop gives you an amazing scenic view of the landscape cascading down to the coast and in the distance the smallest island of Comino and the larger island of Malta...all in one photo.

At this stage, our tour is coming to an end and we will make our way back to the ferry for our return to Malta and transport you back to the drop off point.

You will immediately notice that Gozo is much greener and has certain characteristics making it different to the larger island of Malta. We start our tour with a visit to the ancient temples of Ggantija. Ggantija Temples (a UNESCO World Heritage site) are 5500 years old, making them some of the oldest free-standing structures in the world. Our guide will unfold the history related to these 'giant towers' erected during the golden neolithic period (c. 3600–2500 BCE).
 
We next proceed to the pretty bay of Marsalforn and here you will board a trackless train which will take you on a fabulous trip where you will discover some of Gozo's natural sites. You will travel on the smooth plateau from where you can admire ancient salt pans and beautiful natural bays of Xwejni and Qbajjar, not accessible by large coaches. This unique way of touring is exclusive to this tour and so not to be missed. We rejoin our coach and continue to our next stop at the Ta’ Dbiegi Crafts Village, this shortstop is ideal if you want to pick up a souvenir. Here you can view local handmade pottery, mouth-blown glass, Gozo lace and silver filigree.

A special plant is said to grow here which has various medical cures for conditions such as dysentery, bleeding and impotence.
 
Our final stop is to Victoria, the island capital and the crossroads of Gozo..meaning all main roads pass through Victoria. Victoria is also locally known as Rabat, in fact, locals still call it that. Here you will have time to explore the ancient Cittadella an ancient fortified city located at the heart of Victoria. The Cittadella is a small walled city, only a small number of families still live within the walls. This historical fortified city has recently undergone major restoration works and you can visit the new visitors centre, explore quaint alleys or stroll around the walls enjoying amazing views of the island from the high bastions.
 
We end our memorable day of adventures with dinner in Victoria.

At this stage, our tour is coming to an end and we will make our way back to the ferry for our return to Malta and transport you back to the drop off point.
