Overview

Today’s guided excursion takes us to the central part of Malta, dominated by the medieval fortified city of Mdina, Malta’s former capital city. The narrow, winding streets, dating back to medieval times, lead to the imposing bastions, commanding a magnificent panorama of the island. On the way there, you will discover different styles of architecture, including Siculo-Norman palaces and other baroque buildings of great historical importance. Time stands still in this ‘Silent City’ which is a film-maker’s paradise.

Leaving Mdina through Greeks’ Gate, we stop at the early Christian catacombs in Rabat before proceeding to the cliffs at Dingli. After lunch we will visit the San Anton botanical gardens situated near the Presidential Palace, which you will be able to admire from outside. We shall also spend time at the crafts centre at Ta’ Qali. At the end of the tour, allow us to astound you with Mosta’s majestic dome, one of Europe’s largest.

Our guide, Anna was really amazing. Although we were with a group there was time to explore individually and everything was relaxing about this experience. Be prepared and bring a hat and wear light clothes if you are visiting in hot weather. Definitely recommend this if you don’t have a car and you want to learn a bit about the historical places :)
Jam packed day in the older parts of Malta

Action packed tour - we went to the gardens, dinglicliffs, Mdina, Rabat and briefly to Mosta all in one day. Saw so much in such a short space of time!
Good tour

We went as a couple and planned on getting as much of the must-see parts of the island done. We did do this and got around a fair bit, it's a large group you're in.
One of the issues we had was lunch wasn't arranged very well, there were a few people in our group who didn't eat meat and this seemed to be an issue as it was a set menu, fortunately this was sorted but the impression we got was this was an inconvience to the chef - it could be improved by asking for dietry requirements when booking to avoid this in the future. The restuarant is nice but it's incredibly warm and the fans were on but not aimed at the table so everyone was sweating cobs!
Was lovely to see so many parts of the island, great info given from Bernadette, really enjoyed exploring Mdina on our own for a short while. Catacombs were very interesting as was the trip to Dingli cliffs and Mdina/Rabat.
Agree with other reviews, the trip to Ta Quai craft village is boring and could be substituted for somewhere with more significant value, it's bigger than you think and there's some nice stuff but nothing we were interested in.
Busy day with a lot to see

We really were interested in seeing the Catacombs in Rabat and the town of Mdina. The church of Mosta was a pleasant addition. We found the cliffs and the craft part was not for us. Due to our group being a large group we found that the tour guide would be speaking at the front of the group and if we were at the back we missed out. Also our tour was grouped into English and French speaking so there was a lot of speaking. The guide was very fluent in both languages though.
