Overview

Visit Gozo and the prehistoric Ġgantija Temples on this day trip from Malta. In the company of a guide, travel to the neighboring island of Gozo to visit the UNESCO-listed Ġgantija Temples, which are among the oldest megalithic sites in the world. You’ll also see some of the Mediterranean’s most gorgeous beach vistas, visit Victoria’s citadel, and enjoy a 3-course lunch at a local restaurant.
  • Gozo day trip from Malta including the Ġgantija Temples
  • Visit Xagħra to marvel at the UNESCO-listed Ġgantija Temples
  • Savor a 3-course Mediterranean lunch with a glass of wine
  • Soak up picturesque sea views at Xlendi Bay
  • Visit the hilltop citadel in Victoria
Begin with pickup from your Malta hotel (selected hotels only), and then travel in a climate-controlled coach to the port. Here, board a ferry for the crossing to the pretty island of Gozo.

On arrival, travel south to Xagħra by coach, where the majestic Ġgantija Temples await you. These UNESCO World Heritage–listed temples are among the oldest megalithic monuments in the world, predating even the Giza pyramids in Egypt and England’s Stonehenge.

Explore the site with your guide and hear about the temples’ history as you wander. Many researchers believe that this site was dedicated to the Great Earth Mother, a goddess of fertility.

Continue to Xlendi Bay, an inlet encased by cliffs, before heading to Gozo’s capital of Victoria. Stop for lunch and a glass of wine at a local restaurant before visiting the hilltop citadel.

When the time comes, return to the port and catch the ferry back to Malta. Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

This trip was great-- you got to see a number of locations in Goza from a quick road side stop to shopping to the villages/ temples. When it says 7 hours though it means tour-- not transportation so it's actually a 9+ hour day.

it was very good, the hole trip was well manged and my tour guide was nice and knowledgeable about the different sites. the best site by far was the Ggantija temples which I wont spoil but the stories about it and the history behind are very interesting. the lunch provide was nice and the other location were interesting too, but the best location next to the Ggantija temples was the liquor store which was an added bonus of the trip, the liquor was some of the best I have ever had. I would recommend this trip to any one who is a history buff.

The itinerary us well orgsnized. The temples are amazing and very well preserved. The coasts are stunning and Victoria so picturesque! the tour guide was kind and fairly knowledgeable. Only negative the included lunch was really poor, a set menu with nothing typical. It would have been better to have some free time to enjoy the great Maltese food.

The tour guide as excellent. Note that this trip visited the temples: not all do so. The trip really started at the north end of the ferry ride to Gozo. There were two trips by different agencies and they did a switcheroo to make sure only one language was required.. which improved the commentary,,,, Excellent value.

All trips to Gozo are the same and the same tour operator, so forget comparing reviews! They pick you up in one van and then deposit you at the ferry where you are out into groups according to language, then put onto a bus and take. Gozo does a coop so all trips are the same.Getting in the ferry is a study in dysfunction and disorganization. Half our group and tour guide ended up missing our ferry and we had to wait on the other end of the ferry ride where a nice bus driver from the Italian group told us where to wait. From pick up at the hotel to getting on the bus in Gozo was almost 3.5 hours! Walked through the archeological stop on 30 minutes. Got longer time in a “craft market” that sold “locally-handmade” items from from (China), seriously...pashmina scarves that they sell on the street in NYC, Florence, and Paris for 5 bucks that were “real cashmere” for upwards of 30 euros - at least change the tags! The guide took a call while she was telling us about something. We waited, and the food for lunch was HORRIBLE! I ate bread and margarine (you just can’t make this stuff up). I travel a lot, and will only do day tours when there are lots of steps and I do t have a lot of time. I never disappointed because I get it’s a day trip. This time I was not only disappointed, I had to get up at 5:40 am to get to the pick up location on time for an 8:15 pick-up and didn’t see my first stop until after 12:00 noon. Take my advice, do it on your own, it will cost less and take less time.

A very long day over 10 hours visiting the places as described. Lunch was very poor. Utter chaos at the ferry terminal at beginning and end of tour, even to the extent the guide missed the ferry !!, so we were waiting at at Goza in the next ferry with the guide to arrive. Guide was fairly good, although somewhat ambiguous at times with respect to meeting times, there was a lot of confusion in the group. However the tour is quite cheaply priced given the length so it balances out.
