What You Can Expect

Malta Sightseeing Tour: Mdina, Mosta Dome and Ta Qali Crafts Village

See the historical highlights of Mdina on a walking tour!

Begin with a pickup from your Malta hotel, and then set off by climate-controlled minibus to explore the pretty archipelago.
Travel first to the small town of Mosta, where you’ll visit Mosta Church, an impressive place of worship whose dome is said to be among the largest in the world.

Continue to nearby San Anton Botanical Garden. Here, make the most of free time to explore at your own pace. Wander along the garden’s shaded paths and admire the luscious flora and ornamental fountains that are dotted around.

Next, make for Ta Qali Crafts Village, a hamlet constructed on the site of a World War II airbase. See the Nissen huts that were once used as air-raid shelters and head inside three of the shops and studios to see the craftspeople at work.

Break for a 3-course lunch with wine at a traditional Maltese restaurant before continuing to Rabat. Visit St Paul’s Grotto and listen to stories of the legendary magical stone inside the cave. Then, enjoy an independent visit to the Wignacourt Museum whose collection includes artifacts, paintings and Christian catacombs that dates to the 4th centry.

Make your final stop in medieval Mdina. Take a short walking tour along the walled city’s ramparts and revel in breathtaking views of Malta and the Grand Harbour. Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

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.

Mirabel was our guide and she was both full of information and wonderful. The stops that try to get to spend more money could be eliminated, seems like all tours anymore take up a lot of time with these.

At the start we were transferred by bus to the starting point, but there was no communication, so did not know what was happening or where we were going. The gardens were beautiful and a real pleasure to see, the guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Medina was very interesting and again we learnt about the history and had lots of opportunities to look round. The domed church was amazing, but we only had 30 minutes to look round which was a shame. Again my main criticism is the meal included in this tour, it was rushed, we were cramped and the quality of the food was dire, it was such a disappointment as it sounds good in the tour information.

I thought the tour was good and I do recommend it. However, I would like to see more time spent in Mdina and the tour guide give more information about the city.
