The Tarxien Temples are fascinating, as there are few examples of other megalithic temples in the Mediterranean region. Walking around them with a guide helps you to really understand their prehistoric history.
Excellent and informative staff. Local Viator staff very considerate and helpful.
Well done to all at Viator.
Even though we were unable to get on the boats for Blue Grotto due to windy conditions the views were spectacular.
Excellent day spent viewing the island. The information provided by and the interaction of the tour guide was fabulous!! Highly recommended!!
Great experience and insights - well worth it!
Fur our first day to tour around Malta, we joined a tour group that brought us to the Blue Grotto (where we met the fisherman who caught the biggest great white shark ever! His name is Alfredo and I thought he was joking at first but when I googled him, he did catch a 23.4 ft great white on April 17. 1987 - he still had dark hair then). Needless to say, the Blue Grotto was amazing and the light blue waters are just fantastic!
We had a beautiful guide named Janic and she also brought us to the Tarxien Temple to see some ruins, and also to a cave called the Ghar Dalam. This cave was the source of many pre-historic fossils including an elephant species that got locked in the island of Malta during the melting part of the Ice Age.
In the cave, it was a bit dark and slippery in some areas, so it was no surprise when an English lady slipped and fell...but the tourist was okay and was actually with us again the next day.
During this tour, we also met a wonderful couple from Germany and they became our FB friends. We had lunch with fresh fish (included in the tour) in Marsascala, where you get to take pictures of the cove.We also enjoyed Marsaxlokk where we saw the colourful "Luzza" boats with "eyes" painted on them to protect the fishermen. This area also had many souvenir vendors and we were allowed to have some time to shop.
Probably my favourite tour we took in Malta. Excellent tour guide. Lunch was very nice, three courses included freshly caught fish. We were fortunate to have a small group on this tour. Only complaint was AC not very good in the van. Also several of the tours we took including this one, had clients who understood different languages. It got tedious for us, and I think exhausting for our guide to have to go back and forth repeating between French and English. I have been to Marsaxlokk and Blue Grotto several times before and will go back again. Very pretty and picturesque. Learned more about Malta's prehistoric background at Tarxien and Ghar Dalam.

Johanna was a good tour guide and managed the German/English language mix of participants very well. I enjoyed the tour and the lunch.
Blue Grotto very nice.
Little fishing village had lots of pretty painted boats.
Ghar Dalam not very interesting.
Good tour. Very informative. The guide was very competent and knowledgable about the Malta's history, in general, and the history of the visited sites, so we received a good chunk of interesting Information.
