Overview

Historical battlements, ancient forts, and pretty coastal towns are just some of the sights you can expect to see on this 3.5-hour tour of Valletta’s peninsula. Travel to Sliema, one of the capital’s ports, and board a boat for your sightseeing cruise. Glide past the Grand Harbour, and see the Three Cities, a collective name given to the ancient fortress cities of Senglea, Cospicua, and Vittoriosa. Then, return to dry land to enjoy some free time in Sliema's main shopping area before your return transfer.
  • 3.5-hour tour of Valetta peninsula with a sightseeing cruise
  • Cruise the waters around Marsamxett and the Grand Harbour
  • Learn about Valletta’s history and culture
  • Admire the historical forts of the Three Cities: Cospicua, Vittoriosa, and Senglea
Depart from your Malta hotel by climate-controlled minibus/coach, and travel to the port of Sliema, where you’ll board a boat for your sightseeing cruise.

Glide around the city’s peninsula and take in the sights. Cruise by the Grand Harbour and spot the ancient fortresses of Senglea, Vittoriosa, and Cospicua, known collectively as the Three Cities. Learn about the Knights of St. John, and discover how the people of the Three Cities warded off the Ottoman Invasion during the Great Sieges with onboard commentary.

Return to port after 1.5 hours on the water, enjoying free time to relax in one of the main cafes or stroll along Sliema's main shopping area before your return transfer. Conclude with a drop-off back at your selected hotel in Malta.

The commentary on the boat was very much inaudible, so barely learnt any history. The tour guys also did not even bother to introduce themselves when picking us up. We felt it was very much overpriced and not personal for the price paid. The cruise itself was very short, spent the same amount of time exploring Sliema on our own. There are plenty of other tour groups in Malta, so I would suggest making your own way to Sliema which is easy to get to by bus or taxi and not that expensive, then going on a cruise.

The guide for the bus portion tried hard to make up for the inaudible commentary on the cruise portion.

I feel it wasnt worth Euros 30 for this tour as the boat cruise itself cost Euros 10 so the pick-up / drop-off and drive around town was grossly over-valued at Euros 20!! The tour guide didnt even stay until the end of our tour - she asked to be dropped off at a bus stop before the tour ended. AWFUL, waste of money!!

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.

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)
