could of been made more interesting, spent a lot of time on museum chats were really there was little to see. The guide worked hard but owing to the sea conditions no boat trip was possible, lunch was good part took along time for the full service.
It was well organised and helped us make the best from our day on Gozo

There was me and another guy turned up, so it was nice to have just the two of us. The tour guide was very informative and I asked her lots of questions, not just about the tour but of Malta! She was really nice and could answer all the questions.
For the price, I think it was worth it. I got picked up from Sliema and we visited the places. You get to see that part of Malta, and even driving there is nice because you can look down the narrow winding streets of that area. The museum at the end isn't outstanding, quite small, but it's okay for a Maritime museum. Though, if you get bored with the museum at the end, you can go for a wander and meet back for the pick up and nearby there are lots of amazing boats docked up and just the area is nice to look at.
Overall, I'd recommend it, especially for the price of what could be a meal out in Malta.
The bus is convenient and a good way to see different parts of Malta. You choose a specific route out of 3 routes and theres enough to see on the hop-on, hop-off bus to take up a day. It is a lot more windy and cold on the top of the bus, I wasnt prepared for this and was quite cold, so beware.
I might add that Malta does have a 1.5 Euro bus ticket that gives you full and unlimited access to the whole of the island, so if you are on a budget, you might want to just save the money and get a day bus pass.
However, I think with limited time and for the convenience and not getting lost, that paying for this specific tourist bus that takes you direct to the spots and not going a much longer route round the houses is probably best.

The tour was a big group a coach bus full of almost 50 pp and hence the pace was really slow as there were many elderly people who walked slowly and got on/ off the bus very slow. There were some places that we didnt have time to visit due to the above issue. We didnt get to do the boat ride to see the Blue Grotto. The other tours offered by this local tour operator were way better - smaller group size, more energetic tour guide. The lunch included with tour price was not very good. A bit disappointed!
I feel it wasnt worth Euros 30 for this tour as the boat cruise itself cost Euros 10 so the pick-up / drop-off and drive around town was grossly over-valued at Euros 20!! The tour guide didnt even stay until the end of our tour - she asked to be dropped off at a bus stop before the tour ended. AWFUL, waste of money!!

We booked this trip for December and unfortunately it was a very wet and windy day but the day trip was excellent and despite the weather we really enjoyed our day trip to Gozo. We were collected promptly from our hotel and were surprised to find that we were the only people on the trip. I think other companies might have cancelled a day trip with only two people so we were very pleased that it went ahead as planned and we ended up with a very personal tour. Our guide Vanessa was lovely, friendly and informative and very much let us decide how long we spent in each place. The lovely lady taxi driver stopped whenever we saw something we wanted to photograph which was also very nice. The Temples are amazing, well worth a visit. The Azure window and the views over the bay were quite spectacular . The area around the Citadel in Victoria is having a lot of work done so we didn't see it at its best, but we saw an interesting film about Gozo and were able to enjoy the views from the citadel despite the rain. Lunch was simple but adequate. We were taken to a lace market which sold lace and woollens and local produce. I am sure many people enjoy to see the local crafts but we felt a little pressured to buy something especially as were the only two people in there. We decided to skip the jewellery shop and continued our tour. It was a shame about the weather but Gozo is very interesting and well worth a visit.
This was a great way to be introduced to the culture and people of Malta. Anthony was extremely knowledgeable about every place we visited. The pace of the tour was excellent. It was truly a full day tour. The lunch was delicious. I had a great time.
Enjoyed this tour with fellow tourists from Germany, so discussions etc pivoted between English and German. Informative on details for each venue with some historical information. Worthwhile tour seeing Botanics, Mostra Church, Mdina, Rabat plus artisan village. Lunch option not for me, otherwise an enjoyable day all round for seeing the sights which form part of this tour.
Malta is a small island, but there is so much to see and their history is so vast that this tour was a great introduction to the Maltese culture. There are also some very photogenic stops throughout the tour and even a break at a local coffee shop to have a traditional snack of "pastizzi," a flaky pastry filled with ricotta. Have a few euros on hand for the pastizzi, as it's not included with the tour
The tour was excellent. Tour guide was knowledgeable. I enjoyed the history and the pace of the tour. We saw a great deal for a day tour. The lunch was excellent. The only reason I did not give it a perfect rating is because I felt we could had spent more time at the citadel and less time shopping.
I had a wonderful time. Good information and history about the harbor. What could had been added, one or two stops. Entry to a fort or castle. This would have earned a perfect rating for the tour. I enjoyed my tour guide. She was very knowledgeable of the area.
