This popular Sunday morning tour focuses on the south of the island and we start with a visit to 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 and you can explore these stunning sites on the 25-minute boat trip which explores the incredible beauty of this natural wonder, it really is a must-do. The boat trip is optional and you should allow €10 adults and €5 for children if you would like to do it. Tour participants that do not want to join the boat trip can grab a drink and enjoy the beautiful scenery or browse around the small outlets.

We then continue to our next stop, en route we will pass some interesting locations until we reach the pretty fishing village of Marsaxlokk. The fishing community still thrives today, in fact, most residents are still actively involved. Other typical characteristics of Marsaxlokk include the low lying buildings which line the picturesque waterfront and the colourful traditional fishing boats called the "luzzu", hundreds of them fill the bay. On Sunday, a 'locals' market expands the whole of the waterfront and this market attracts many locals, this is a fabulous opportunity for you to mix and mingle with them.  If markets are not your thing, you can visit one of the many outlets and try something typical of this locality.

At this stage, our tour comes to an end and we make our way back.
