Herbert was amazing! Great tour, great knowledge of Malta. We usually try to take a city tour within the first 24 hours of being in a new place to get a feel for the city. This one set us up for other great afternoons and evenings in the city.

Herbert was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about all things Malta. He kept a lively but accommodating pace. His love of his homeland was clear in his descriptions of history as well as Malta today. Thank you!
