What You Can Expect

Gozo Day Trip from Malta

Explore the beautiful island of Gozo on this day trip from Valletta!

Begin with a pickup from your hotel in Malta, and then travel to the port by minibus to board your ferry for the 20-minute crossing to Gozo.
On arrival, hop back inside your minibus and set off to explore the picturesque isle with your local guide. Gaze out the window as you pass through rolling hills dotted with sleepy Mediterranean villages. Head first to Dwejra Bay, where you visit the stunning Azure Window: a rocky outcrop in the shape of an arch.
Break for a light lunch with wine at a local eatery, then travel onward to Xlendi Bay for a waterfront stroll. See the azure sea gently lapping on the sand and stop by Calypso Cave, which is thought to be the site where the nymph Calypso held Odysseus as a ‘prisoner of love’ in Odyssey.
Make your final stop of the day in Victoria, the capital of Gozo. Visit the citadel, or citadella, the ancient fortress at the heart of the town. Explore the site with your guide and watch a short film about the island’s culture and history.
Your day trip concludes with a hotel drop-off following the return ferry ride back to Malta.

The tour was indeed amazing... Visiting Rabat and #39;s citadel and the Azure window up close by boat (even with 2 toddlers in tow) were definitely the highlights for me... Lunch was very good!

Probably the best way to see Gozo. The trip was well organised so that we saw the most important features in the limited time available. Our guide was well informed.

Marcel our tour guide was faultless. The tour collected me ontime and we proceeded for a packed day in Gozo. We managed to see the whole Island and due to the small size of the group we even added extra places to the agenda. Highly recommended day out, no hard sell, ferry journey and optional boat trip.

This tour was excellent! Pick up straight from our hotel, nice minibus and great relaxing tour trough the Gozo. The dinner they promised was poor, but it didint bother us. Starters was pasta and some tomato sauce on it, Main courses meat, wich was from the can or fish, wich was cheap and didint taste at all and there was some omlette, but i dont know about that.
Funny thing that there was 2 bottles of wine per 6 person table, but if you wanted to drink water you needed to pay extra. So at the end we were littlebit drunk.

Great tour! Great organization! You'll see almost everything of Gozo (except for maybe the smaller villages).

This tour gets you on a 20-minute ferry ride to the nearby smaller but greener island of Gozo. It was full of people, specially because it was Saturday when we visited. But, it was worth it because we saw the beautiful Azure Window!

You might have already seen this Azure Window in Gozo, Malta through Youtube videos of illegal cliff jumpers. Due to erosion, there is the danger of the arch disappearing in a few years so people are not allowed to walk on it. In April 2012 a large piece of rock was dislocated and resulted in the window being made larger and more unstable, as well as a reduction in its nearly perfect oblong shape.

When you arrive, you have to purchase the ticket which I think was less than 5 Euros, and then you fall in line for your turn to ride the boat. People were practicicing scuba diving in the area, and a lot of swimmers enjoying the waters. Then, when your boat arrives, you ride it (with life vest of course) and you pass through this cave tunnel.. This trip also includes going to the Calypso Cave linked to the Greek mythological tale Odyssey and a short "Gozo 360 show" in Victoria which a good 20 minutes or so of relaxing in the ai-rconditioned theatre.

Great tour. Gozo is beautiful. The Azure window was breathtaking. We saw quite a few parts of the island.
My only complaint was that the pick up service was inefficient. I was picked up at 7:45 for a 9:00 ferry.
