Malta is renowned for its medieval monuments and rich cultural heritage, and you don’t have to go far from the capital to take in the highlights. On this half-day tour from Valletta, explore the walled town of Mdina, admire traditional Maltese handicrafts in Ta'Qali village, and marvel at the magnificent Dome of Mosta. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included
  • Half-day tour of Mosta, Ta'Qali Craft Village, and Mdina from Valletta
  • Admire the beautiful domed church of Mosta
  • Watch the craftsmen at work at the Ta'Qali handicrafts village
  • Explore the medieval walls and monuments of Mdina on a walking tour
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up and drop-off
  • Ideal tour for first-time visitors to Malta or those short on time
After being picked up from your hotel in the morning, set out on the around 30-minute journey to Mosta. On arrival, follow your guide to around the historic town, stopping to see the star attraction – Mosta Church, with its gigantic dome, the third largest in all of Europe. Enjoy some free time to explore independently before continuing to the second stop of the morning – the Ta'Qali Crafts Village.

Discover some of Malta’s traditional handicrafts, as you watch demonstrations of glass blowing and see how the island’s exquisite silver filigree jewelry is made. Take time to browse the artisan workshops with or without your guide, and perhaps pick up some unique souvenirs.

Finally, arrive in the hilltop town of Mdina, renowned for its impressively preserved medieval city walls. Follow your guide on a walking tour, during which you can admire the medieval monuments, learn how Mdina was the capital of Malta in ancient times, and discover for yourself why it’s nicknamed ‘The Silent City’.

After an action-packed morning, return to Valletta, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

A fairly good half day tour which covered the places as described. Balance of time was not right, only 15 minutes at Mosta but a total of an hour at various craft places. At the end the guide told us to wait for the bus half an hour before the bus arrived. I could have seen the Cathedral and museum if I knew this, instead of waiting in the sun. The pickup in the morning was an hour going round the hotels and fairly hectic in places whilst the bus navigated exceptionally busy narrow streets, with lots of shouting and horning. Notwithstanding this, given the price for this tour, I can't really complain too much.

Tour was just so so. It is rated a three-star as my husband and I can take off at Valletta centre on our request which is not as schedule and which save us all the traffic problem, otherwise it is a two star rating. The tour guide is OK but time was not given enough on Mosta, like 15 minutes vs time spent on the Crafts Village was like 30 mins.

This was a nice half-day tour and was well-organized. The only thing that I would change is that it seemed very packed on the bus, and the tour was conducted in 3 languages. I think it would be more enjoyable to have smaller separate vehicles that aren't so packed and it would be less time-consuming than having to explain everything in 3 different languages. Our guide did explain things well, but I felt more like I was cattle being herded along the different areas. The Mosta cathedral was very nice, Mdina was interesting to visit and we had some free time there, and the Ta Qali Crafts Village was also nice to visit.
