This tour includes some of central Malta's highlights and our first stop includes a visit to the town of Mosta. Dominating the central piazza is the Rotunda church, more commonly known as Mosta Dome. It is probably the most famous church in Malta, mainly because of its large dome which is the fourth largest unsupported dome in Europe. For many visitors, the most fascinating feature of this church was the World War II incident when during an air raid a bomb pierced the dome and fell inside the church during a service which was attended by 300 locals, but the bomb failed to explode and this the locals hailed as a miracle. You can visit the sacristy which displays the events and houses a replica of the bomb.
 
Our next stop is the Ta'Qali Village. Ta'Qali was once the British RAF base in central Malta, this old airfield is now home to our National Football Stadium, a  National park, conventions centre and Crafts Village which houses an array of artisans. Here we can view the local crafts and it is also the ideal place to purchase some gifts from a good selection of locally made pottery and ceramics, filigree and jewellery, cane works, stone and much more. Do not miss out on the glassblowers – decorative glass made in the traditional manner by hand and mouth; also etching and crystal cutting.
 
Our final visit is to the medieval city of 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 (Knights of St. John) 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.
 
At this stage, our tour comes to an end and we make our way back.

The tour will take us back in time to medieval Malta, the Roman period and the very heart of Christianity. We will start with a visit to Rabat. Here we will make our way through the narrow streets to the centre which is dominated by the imposing St. Paul's Church which overlooks the piazza. Rabat can claim the origins of Maltese Christianity. It was here in AD60 that the Apostle St Paul is said to have stayed after being shipwrecked on the Islands. During our visit to Rabat, we will include an internal visit of the impressive St. Paul's catacombs.

Our final stop includes the ancient city of 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 (Knights of St. John) 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.

The final stop during this tour is to San Anton Gardens. These magnificent gardens are located in the grounds of San Anton Palace – today the official residence of the President of Malta. Probably the best known of our public gardens, San Anton Gardens were first laid out by Grand Master Antoine de Paule between 1623 and 1636. You can wander along paths and terraces which are lined with enormous trees, hedges, flower beds and old stone pots full of plants to any of five ponds with ducks, fountains and water lilies. Here one also finds the largest orchard on the Island with more than 800 orange trees and other citrus trees.

The Three Cities of Senglea, Cospicua and Vittoriosa are located to the south of Valletta and form part of the magnificent Grand Harbour. These cities have endured so much in the past including the Great Seige of 1565 against the might of the Ottoman Empire and of course endless bombardments during WWII. This short half-day tour is a mere introduction to these unique cities, their history, heritage and people.

The Threes Cities are located inside fortifications known as the 'Cottonera Lines' which were built by the Knights of St. John to protect these cities during the 17th and 18th centuries. We start our tour with a visit to Senglea. Senglea was built on a peninsula and could only be accessed by a bridge on one side and from the sea from the other three sides. As you enter the city you will notice the magnificent church which is dedicated to the Nativity of Our Lady. Today Senglea is flanked on one side by a shipyard, on the other side the stunning yacht marina and at the point of the city, one can enjoy magnificent views of the harbour.

As soon as you leave Senglea you will immediately arrive in the second of the three cities, Cospicua. This history of this ancient maritime city can be traced back to the Phoenicians era at 600 BC. The Knights of St. John built the first Dock Yard during the 18th century, however, it was the during the British rule in Malta (1800 to 1964) that Cospicua was used extensively by the Royal Navy. Today the old dockyard area has been transformed into a beautiful marina and a new university.

The last of the Three Cities and undoubtedly the oldest and most important is Vittoriosa. Otherwise and more commonly known as Birgu, the history of Birgu is heavily linked to the Knights of St. John. In 1530 when the Knights first arrived they made Birgu the capital. They fortified the area and built their Palazzo's, hospital, churches and the castle of St. Angelo, this large fortification was separated from the main city of Birgu connected only by a draw bridge. Today, it is known as Fort St. Angelo and is still commands a prominent place at the heart of the Grand Harbour. The Birgu waterfront, once lined with Galley's nowadays is lined with superyachts from all over the world!

The final part of this tour includes a visit to one of the oldest wineries. Winemaking in Malta dates back many many years and we will visit these 400-year-old cellars where you can experience some authentic  Maltese heritage. You can sample some wines during the visit.

We start our walking tour of Valletta at the Upper Barraka Gardens which offer stunning views of the Grand Harbour and magnificent fortifications, a walk down the mains streets where you can admire numerous historical buildings built by the Knights of St. John including the Auberges, Palazzos, the Grand Master's Palace and the St. John's Co. Cathedral, the Church of the Order and also home to Caravaggio's masterpiece "Beheading of St. John" amongst other treasures.

Malta and Gozo Islands are home to a variety of megalithic structures, seven of which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Our half-day tour is a mere insight into a fascinating era dominated by Neolithic man and during this tour, our guide will unfold an ancient history dating back a staggering 5000years.

Our first visit is to the Hagar Qim Temple Complex which includes Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Temples. Before entering the temples we start at the new visitors centre which will help you understand how these magnificent temples were built over 5000 years ago! We then continue with a tour to the Hagar Qim Temple. This temple has the largest and heaviest megaliths out of all the temple sites around the Maltese Islands, some slabs weighing a staggering 20 tons. Also forming part of this temple complex is the Mnajdra Temple which lies tucked on a slope in the cliffs, overlooking the tiny isle of Filfla. This site is probably the most atmospheric of all Malta’s temples and during the Equinox, on the 20th March and the 22nd September, the rays of the sun pass directly through the temple’s main doorway and light up the main axis. The rays of sun during the Solstices light up the summer table and the winter table alternately.

We proceed with our tour to Ghar Dalam Cave. The Ghar Dalam Cave is a highly important site as it was here that the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta, some 7,000 years ago, was discovered. This huge cavern is 144 metres deep, but only the first 80 metres are accessible. The lowermost layers date back to the Pleistocene Age (180,00 years ago) and to the end of the last Ice Age (16,000 years ago) and contained the fossilised bones of dwarf elephants, hippopotami, red deer, bear, fox, wolf, micro-mammals and birds.

With nearly 60 Festa's in Malta on the annual calendar (mostly during the summer months) and nearly 20 Festa events on the smaller sister island of Gozo, the Maltese Festa, a religious celebration organized by the local parish, is a typical scene of the hot summer months on the island, and very much an iconic part of the culture in Malta.

You will be taken to a local village for the Best Eve of the Festa Fireworks Display on the island. Along the way to the Village, places of interest are pointed out and explained by our Licensed Local Guide. Once there, a visit to the Parish Church, splendidly decorated to fit the occasion is a must. Then relax in the unique Festa atmosphere with a leisurely stroll around the village streets all beautifully lit up and filled with stalls of traditional Festa sweets, while the music of the marching village brass bands fills the air.

Located in the heart of picturesque Naxxar, this 18th Century Palace is a place of wonder that begs to be explored. On your visit, you will discover the intricate nuances of Malta’s historic nobility and their enchanting way of life. Touring this stately home offers great insight and sparks the imagination – whether you find yourself seeking inspiration from the grand Ballroom, the detailed Family Chapel or the fabulous walled Gardens and Orangery.

Your next stop is Clapham Junction. Clapham Junction is covered with very puzzling and mysterious grooves in the rock. They appear to be ancient archaeological roadways of some sort and can an be found all over the islands. Sometimes they are a solitary pair that can go on for miles, however, the cart ruts we will be visiting are extensive and criss-cross each other, hence the name 'Clapham Junction'.  One of the mysteries and frustrations of Malta's ancient history is that there are no records left thousands of years ago.

You will then drive to The Buskett Gardens, located in the fertile valley of Wied il-Luq, Siggiewi. The gardens are at their best in Spring but they offer shade from the harsh mid- Summer sun and offer a quiet place for a walk in the winter months. Verdala Palace, an official residence of the President of Malta, is located on the edge of the Gardens. A coffee break is also included in this tour where you will taste the delicious and traditional “Pastizzi”.

Your final stop is Dingli Cliffs, located less than a kilometre to the south-west of the village of Dingli. The cliffs are 220 metres high and are the highest point in Malta! An isolated chapel makes for a charming landmark. Built-in the 17th century, the Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene offers some of the most beautiful views you can get from these cliffs. From here you can also see the tiny uninhabited islet of Filfla.

During this excursion, you will tour onboard a Vintage Bus, a bus that is now rare to see on the Maltese Islands.

This is the only tour available in Malta which is dedicated to Malta’s British history. During the tour, we will discuss why the British came to Malta, what happened and why they left visiting sites around Valletta and Vittoriosa.

The tour will begin in Vittoriosa where we will see the fortifications which date back to the times of the Knights and were later used by the British for their defensive purpose. We will visit the maze-like, underground Air Raid shelters and relive the conditions of what has been referred to as the Second Great Siege of Malta. These subterranean bomb shelters were excavated in the solid rock and were extended as the war progressed.

After a short walk of Vittoriosa, we will drive to Valletta by bus. We will walk to the upper Barrakka Garden which enjoys a spectacular view of the Grand Harbour (the largest natural harbour of the Mediterranean Sea), which was a British military base and the main reason why Malta came under fire as soon as Mussolini declared war on the Allied forces.

“The declaration of war has already been consigned to the ambassadors of Great Britain and France.” Benito Mussolini 1940

A walk around the streets of Valletta will take us by the Palace which was used by Napoleon Bonaparte, the second world war Victory (Soup) Kitchen, Queen Victoria’s statue and the ruins of the Royal Opera House which was destroyed at the peak of the bombings in Malta.

“This is not the end. It is not the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Winston Churchill 1942

After some free time for a lunch break, we will walk to the lower level of Valletta to the Malta War Museum. The museum itself is situated at Fort St. Elmo, an original defensive system built by the Knights which also was modified to serve the British military purpose. Among the numerous exhibits are the fuselage of one of the legendary Gloster Gladiators and well as the E-boat (human torpedo).

“Without Malta, the Axis will end by losing control of North Africa.” Field Marshal Erwin Rommel 1941

This wonderful tour includes stunning scenery, the beautiful azure crystal clear sea, ancient towns and insight to an islands rich culture and heritage.

We start our day with a visit to the south of the island and the beautiful Wied iz-Zurrieq, famous for the magnificent Blue Grotto. This tiny hamlet sits in a valley and has a very picturesque harbour. The grotto and neighbouring system of sea caves are home to brilliant phosphorescent marine life. The 25-minute boat trip explores the incredible beauty of this natural wonder and is a "must-do". This optional boat trip is only eur8 adults, eur4 for children.

As you travel during the next part of this tour, your guide will explain the importance of the Girgenti Valley. Girgenti is a shaded fertile valley renowned for its orchards and cultivated fields. The ecosystem here is maquis, so it is green all year round. Citrus and other fruit trees thrive in the valley beneath the surrounding ridge. The old picturesque farmsteads are the homes of the local farming community who still work the fields and cultivate the orchards. On a spur overlooking the valley stands the summer palace of the Inquisitors built by Monsignor Visconti in 1625. Nowadays it is the official residence of our Prime Minister. Our journey via Girgenti will take us the west coast of the island.

Stretching for some 4km along the west coast are the Dingli Cliffs. These cliffs have vertical or near-vertical rock faces rising from the sea to heights of up to 200m above sea level. Some of the steep slopes are terraced and this unique feature together with the expanse of the deep blue Mediterranean sea provide stunning views. Here will stop at the small 18th-century chapel which sits on the cliffs for a superb view and an ideal photo opportunity.

Our next stop will take you back in time and we start with the old town of Rabat. This charming town has strong ties with the Roman era and the visit of St. Paul AD60. Here we will take a short stroll from the central piazza through the quaint streets, where you can admire the old houses, alleys, traditional balconies amongst other typical old town characteristics. Our historical walk continues to what we consider ours as our 'pride and joy', the fairy tale city of Mdina. Mdina which is a medieval city 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 (Knights of St. John) 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.

At this stage, our tour comes to an end and we make our way back to the cruise terminal and Valletta
