Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See the best of Malta in one hassle-free day trip with prebooked attraction entry, lunch, and transport.
Begin with a pickup from your Malta hotel (selected hotels only), and then set off by climate-controlled coach to explore the scenic archipelago.

Travel first to the fortified city of Mdina, Malta’s former capital. Explore the narrow streets and imposing bastions that offer panoramic views of the island. Learn about the area's architecture from your guide, including Siculo-Norman palaces.

Leaving Mdina through Greeks’ Gate, stop at the early Christian catacombs in Rabat before heading to the Dingli Cliffs, where you can enjoy excellent views along the coast.

Break for lunch at a traditional Maltese restaurant for a 3-course meal with a glass of wine. Eat and chat with your guide, and then travel to the San Anton Botanical Gardens for an exterior visit, located near the Presidential Palace.

Next, make for Ta Qali Crafts Village, a hamlet constructed on the site of a World War II airbase. See the Nissen huts that were once used as air-raid shelters, and head inside three of the shops and studios to see the craftspeople at work.

Finish your tour with a stop in the small town of Mosta, where you’ll visit Mosta Church, whose dome is said to be one of the largest in the world. Your tour will conclude afterward with drop-off back at your selected hotel.

The highlight of this tour is definitely Mdina with its long history and dominating majesty! A very interesting surprise were the Christian catacombs at Rabat. The tour started very confusing, we stayed in Mellieha and we were picked from a hotel where many other tours were meeting and the driver was not able to find us among many people, though we arrived 20 minutes before the meeting hour. In the end, we met after being called by the organizing company and waited in Valletta for the English guide, again all of us confused by the fact that there were at least another 10 other buses for different languages and different tours. But, all is well when it ends well! Lunch was included, but nothing traditional. To conclude, it was a relaxing day finally!

Don't Overlook This Tour

With all the other glamorous sites to see on Malta, don't overlook the opportunity to spend time in Mdina and to visit the Mosta Dome. The Crafts Village is okay if you want to shop, but it's otherwise overrated I think. Mdina is a gem and might be a place you might want to visit on your own after the tour gives you your bearings. The Mosta Dome is a treasure and a must-see--a tremendously beautiful church that was miraculously saved during WWII. Our guide was enthusiastic and energetic. It was a big bus tour (as many on Malta are), so that wasn't great, but the pacing was good and we had time to spend in Mdina.

A bit confusing at the beginning, but all went smooth afterwards. The guide (Josephine) was very informative without overwhelming us, gave us enough time for every place. I would rather have skipped the second stop at the craftwork village. All in all, a very reach day. Thank you Jo.

We loved this day tour. We got to see a lot in one day. Our amazing guide is what made the trip great, though. Fabianne (she called her self Fabi) was incredible! Funny, knowledgeable, and gave us lots of insight. Thank you Fabi!

Our tour began quite early as we had opted for a hotel pick up. Get a good breakfast as its a long tour. Tour Guide Jo was excellent... we had a full history lesson en route , very informative & interesting. Quite a lot to see so make sure you wear comfortable footwear. Overall a great tour.

After a very disorganised start to this tour, the actual tour was fair-tasting and I would recommend it. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable (unfortunately I forgot her name). Great way to see Malta.

Nice tour to M'dina and Mostar

Interesting trip to see the silent city (M'dina) and the beautiful nearby dome of Mostar. Also included visits to a garden, craft centre and catacomb. Well organised. Might have preferred more time in M'dina...perhaps by giving the catacomb a miss. Lunch with wine included. Craft centre was attractive and provided a chance to buy gifts.

Exhausting but rewarding day tour

This was a comprehensive tour with a charming and knowledgeable guide called Ana and she was very kind to me knowing I had a bad knee and I didn’t feel rushed. Enough time was given at each place and the driver took the bus as close as possible. The catacombs were a long hard walk so the guide advised me against it. Mdina is an absolute gem and as the guide said, you can return and spend a whole day there savouring it’s beauty. Last but not least, the lunch was very good and in a lovely restaurant
