Your tour starts with pickup from your Valletta hotel and a short transfer to the port to board your ferry. Enjoy the views as you glide across the Mediterranean and after an around 30-minute cruise, arrive on the island of Gozo. Transfer to a bus to explore the island, starting with the star attraction – the UNESCO-listed Ggantija temples. As you marvel at the megalithic temples, hear how they were erected during the Neolithic Age, more than 5,550 years ago. Not only are they older than the Egyptian Pyramids and England’s Stonehenge, but they are the second-oldest religious structures in the world, after Gobekli Tepe in Turkey.
Continue to Marsalforn, where you’ll board the trackless train for a fun ride along the coast. Along the way, enjoy magnificent views of Marsalforn Bay, Qbajjar Bay, and Xwejni Bay, and spot landmarks such as the Salt Pans and Salvatur Statue.
Back in the bus, make a stop at the Gozo Craft Centre, where you’ll have chance to admire local handicrafts, purchase some unique souvenirs, or sample some typical Maltese food. Then, head to the island capital, Victoria, pausing along the way to admire views of the Inland Sea and Dwejra Bay.
In Victoria, follow your guide on a short walking tour, taking in attractions such as the Cittadella and Gozo Cathedral, then enjoy free time for sightseeing or shopping independently.
Finally, head to Rabat and finish the day with a delicious buffet dinner at a local restaurant, before catching the ferry back to Malta. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel in the evening.
