Would have liked a more extended sightseeing tour, with stops. Was short and by car only.

I had a wonderful time. Good information and history about the harbor. What could had been added, one or two stops. Entry to a fort or castle. This would have earned a perfect rating for the tour. I enjoyed my tour guide. She was very knowledgeable of the area.


4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

I recommend this tour although the organization could do with some improvements :
- The speakers were speaking too low. better placement of the sound speakers could do to counter the wind/exterior noises.
- the boat didn't have a seat for everyone (hence too many on the boat?)
- half of the boat had cover for sun. (could do with more covered area when doing the cruise at midday and start of afternoon)


4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

It was good. Enjoyed the sites of Malta and visiting the two harbours. Commentary was good also.
