What You Can Expect
On arrival, step inside your air-conditioned minibus, and then set off to explore the stunning little island. Greener and arguably more picturesque than Malta, Gozo is made up of three rolling hills, with cute Mediterranean villages peppered throughout its landscape.
Admire the scenery on the way to Dwejra Bay and visit a beauty spot called the Azure Window – a rocky arch formed by centuries of gradual erosion. Stop to take pictures from the bay, and hear of the TV shows and movies that the arch has appeared in, like Game of Thrones and The Count of Monte Cristo. Another impressive landmark that your guide will point out is the Inland Sea – a stretch of water separated from the Mediterranean by rocks.
Enjoy a break for a light Mediterranean lunch with wine in a local restaurant, and then continue to Xlendi Bay for a stroll along the seafront, admiring the cobalt sea gently lapping its sandy beach. Head inside a grotto called Calypso Cave , which overlooks beautiful Ramla Bay, and hear of its links to Greek mythology; it’s thought to be the site mentioned in the Odyssey, where the nymph Calypso held Odysseus as a ‘prisoner of love.’
Your final stop of your tour is in the island’s capital – Victoria. In the heart of the town lies the citadel, an ancient fortress (also known as the citadella) that’s believed to have protected the town since the Bronze Age. Head inside the citadel’s walls and visit the theater to watch the Gozo 360 show – a short movie about the island’s history and culture.
Travel back to Gozo port and, after your ferry ride, finish your day trip with a drop-off at your hotel.
Great Tour, Great Guide, Great Country.
once again another great viator product and look forard to booking in the future
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.
The best your guide ever! Fantastic trip - great value for money!
Exceptional arrangements and service by organizers ( Viator and their business partners), Guide and driver.
Good value and introduction to the many facets of Malta
Great tour, very interesting. Viator always does a GREAT job. I learned lots of history saw some awesome sights. Lunch was nice touch. Driver tour guides were VERY good, nice, friendly, helpful.
Excellent! Very good tour
The trip as a whole was really good. We had a really good tour guide who was able to take us in and around Gozo in good time. Her experience was a great help as we were able to head out in Gozo before the rush of the tourists.
I would recommend taking a boat out on to the sea from the inland sea. The tour usually costs 4 Euros per person and is definitely a sight to see the Azure window from a different angle.
The only let down on this trip was the lunch (hence 4 out of 5 stars). We were given some dry pasta with specs of tomato as starters and then some roast chicken as mains. The service was a tad poor in the restaurant and we were made to feel that we were to eat quickly and move on as we weren’t the proper diners for the restaurant. The wine was local red wine (no choice given) served in a jug which was left in the middle of the table for you to help yourself.
I would advise wearing comfortable footwear as when going through Victoria and the Citadel, there are a fair amount of steps that you climb. Also, a lot of water and sun cream as it is much hotter than Malta.
