This is a good tour for a quick overview of Valletta. Could have used a bit more time and more of the highlights of the city and there are many. Hannah our guide was great, even though she had to go back and forth in two different languages, she did it very smoothly.
We were escorted by a well informed and eloquent guide. The tour was well paced and gave us a excellent overview of the role the Knights of the Order of St John had in determining the history and character of the Malta and its people.
Vanessa gave me his tour even though I was he only person attending. That was excellent as often companies cancel if numbers aren't up.
She knew her history and then took me round at an appropriate pace.
Really good orientation for my first day in valetta
I wasn't on the trip - I booked it for my grandparents for my grandad's 80th birthday - however they came home from holiday and he immediately filled me in on their trip with you guys, which they absolutely were over the moon with. They loved all the places they were taken, and couldn't speak highly enough of their guide for the day. You were also very accommodating when they thought they may have to change the date (turned out they didn't need to but said you were very good and willing to help re-arrange if needed.) Thank you very much :) Highly recommended :)

I enjoyed this tour seeing artefacts, historic buildings and so much more. Our tour guide made everything so engaging and it was a pleasure to go with the flow as we walked through Valetta visiting the gardens, church, palace etc. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and glad to have undertaken this tour.
This was a great tour. I believe our guide was Maria, though it has been some time since I took it. I took this tour the day after I arrived in Valletta, and I felt it was a nice orientation to the city without taking too much time. We spent a lot of time at St. John's Co-Cathedral, and it is worth spending some time there. Unfortunately the Grandmaster's Palace was closed, so we didn't get to visit there. We went to the Armoury instead. I think it could be expanded slightly more to include more destinations such as the waterfront, and perhaps a nice place for lunch, but the half day tour is fine as well.
I pre-booked this tour not knowing how accessible these places would be while I was actually staying in Valletta. But it's probably a good tour to do if you are on a short visit/stay in the area.
Everything worked out perfect. We enjoyed the guidetrip and our guide was very good and knew a lot about Maltas history.
Great tour for seeing the best bits of Valletta. We were staying in Valletta, so we feel like we could have done it ourselves but if we were not staying in Valleta and had a day/half day to see the whole town, then this tour would have been ideal.
Huge crowd so the tour guide was fighting against background noise and the tour was multi lingual so there was a tendency to tune in and out
We got unlucky. They are doing a lot of renovating of the Palace so not much to see right now.
Does not include Armory visit but you can do that on your own since Palace is last place tour stops at.
Upper Garden has great views but you need to be there are 12:00 or 16:00 to see them fire the cannon.
Seeing the city by boat is best. Either a narrated tour or a little boat close to the bottom of the lift by the gardens.

Hannah our guide did a very good job of switching between German and English to accommodate everyone in our group. The driver and assistant who picked me up from my hotel were very pleasant. However the driver who took us back to our hotels was rather rude. I forgot Hannah wouldn't be accompanying us on the bus and regret not having thanked her for a very interesting morning.
The tour was not well organised and started late as not everyone had arrived. There was no break for a drink, which was necessary in the heat. Only half of the group finished the tour.
Same tour guide. Not great at volunteering information. Very quick in and out of museums. They should charge more and give more information. It and #39;s a historical tour, not a shopping tour.
