Why Travelers Choose This Tour

If you’re in port in Malta and have only a single day to see this beautiful Mediterranean isle, take this private shore excursion to see the best sights in your own private vehicle.
Meet your driver when your cruise ship docks in Malta, then hop inside your comfortable, private vehicle and set off to begin your shore excursion.

Stop first in the postcard-perfect village of Marsaxlokk. Take in the harbor-front sights and snap photos of the luzzus (multi-colored fishing boats). Then, continue to Wied iz-Zurrieq, a rocky inlet that affords beautiful views of the famous Blue Grotto and Filfla island.

Continue past Mosta Dome, one of Europe’s largest unsupported domes, and travel into Valletta, Malta’s fortified capital city. Here, see the Grandmasters’ Palace, the former residence of Malta’s Grand Masters and currently the seat of parliament.

Next, travel to Upper Barrakka Gardens, the highest point in Valletta, where you’ll pause for photo opportunities of the city and the Grand Harbour. Finally, see Valletta’s ancient bastions before returning to the cruise terminal.

Malta trip was wonderful. We had a private van that took us all over this gorgeous island. We did some walking through a Palace and towns. Our guide was super. She was a local that knew her way around this island. I would recommend the tour for anyone.

The trip began with a visit to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk, which lived up to the reputation of a laid back village. The tour continued to Valletta where we walked through the city and to the Parliament Building. We were fortunate to watch a 5D movie of Valletta which explained the history of the city. It was unfortunate to have several buildings being renovated and therefore not able to visit. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared the beauty of this historical city. Would recommend.

Elena was our guide and Andrew was our driver. They couldn't have been greater. We wanted to see the Red Tower at the other end of the island and the two of them timed it perfectly to get in all the other points of interest. We really got our money's worth for this tour and they were absolutely fantastic.
