Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Malta Sightseeing Tour: Mdina, Mosta Dome, and Ta Qali Crafts Village

See the historical highlights of Mdina on a walking tour!

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.

A lovely tour and great thanks to our very knowledgeable guide Joan. The Mosta dome was amazing and Beautiful and the gardens so lovely and peaceful. We had a lovely lunch in Mdina then viewed this superb 'silent city'. The craft village was interesting especially the old 'nissen huts' which we remember from our younger days! Well worth it.

!!!BEST!!! tour of our holiday. Tour guide knew her history. She was so professional and understanding due to the high temperatures outside only moving to the shaded areas.
Bus was kind of air conditioned but manageable.
Thank you viator for lovely tour.

One of the better days out
Unfortunately, we had just done the Game of Thrones tour, which took us to several points covered on this tour.
Not a problem, as we were happy to see a different perspective
Mdina is not particularly big, so we saw just about everything again from two days previously
Mosta Dome was interesting. Both the bomb story and the church itself is impresive
Take the craft village tour with a pinch of salt. The factory prices story you are given should be taken with caution. We felt prices were cheaper elsewhere.
We ended the day here, and all credit to the tour company.
This was a small group on this day. We were the only ones from Valletta, all the others from the north of the island. Rather than do a huge loop, the tour guide laid on a taxi for me and my wife back to Valletta, meaning not having to endure long drop off visits. Many, many thanks.
