Your tour starts at a central location in Valletta where you'll meet your guide and set off on your private walking exploration of the city, one of Europe's most beautiful, known for its baroque architecture, palaces, and churches. 

This UNESCO World Heritage site dates back to the 1500s, when the Knights of St. John founded the fortress city. Over the years, it became home to buildings designed by top European architects of the era and renowned works of art.

Learn about all of this from your guide as you walk past landmarks such as Parliament House, the ruins of the Royal Opera House, the Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens, Auberge d'Italie, Auberge de Castille, St. John's Co-Cathedral, the Great Siege Monument, Strait Street, St. George Square, Grandmaster's Palace, Piazza Regina, National Library of Malta, the Church of St. Paul's Shipwreck, the Siege Bell War Memorial, and Fort St. Elmo – National War Museum.

As you go, hear little-known stories about what it was like to be a patient at the Holy Infirmatory or a galley slave on the ships of the Order, and whether all knights behaved in accordance to their vows. After three hours, you'll have a deeper perspective of Valletta.

Walking Tour of Valletta

Our guide Matthew did a fantastic job of providing us with the rich history of Malta/Valleta and showing us all key sights of Valleta during our walking tour. He also made excellent restaurant recommendations post walking tour. Valleta lends itself very well to a walking tour given you can traverse city during allotted time and there is much of interest to see.

This private walking tour is the best way to experience Valletta in our opinion. With Matthew as our guide, we learned the history of Valletta and Malta as we walked by buildings, statues, churches, streets, gardens, plazas, steps and walls. Matthew has a wealth of information to share all along the way, and in very clear English. We highly recommend this tour and hopefully, you will have Matthew as your guide. Karen and Fred, USA

Excellent tour with a very knowledgable, informative and articulate guide, Herbert. Even though it rained about half the time, it did not diminish the value of the tour. Highlight was St John's Co-Cathedral! Don't miss it. Ask for Herbert.

Guide Jennifer was very bright and very informative ... and iconoclastic, which added spice and interest. For prominent example, we learned about the Knights of St. John's oath of poverty, chastity, and obedience, and their assiduous and successful efforts to fail utterly to adhere to at least the first two parts. We learned a bit about the defense of Malta during WWII ... and the blast-wave displacement of Victoria's statue, both of which led us later to the Lascaris War Rooms and the fascinating story of bravery, adaptability, tenacity, and brilliance that led to success. The three-hour tour covered Valletta, and her skillful time-management made sure that, even with answering our many questions, we kept to schedule.
