Hop on a time machine and relive the grandeur of prehistoric Maltese monuments like the Tarxien Temples, Mnajdra and Hagar Qim Temples. Believed to be far older than the Great Pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge, these brilliant man-made marvels offer an experience you will never forget. This private self-guided tour includes door pickup and drop, so you don’t have to worry about hiring a car for your trip as we will take care of everything. We will also provide detailed audio guides in 5 different languages and pre-book tickets at museums to ensure that you get in without having to wait in lines. And when you’re done relishing the temples and sites, the trip also concludes with visits to two fishing villages. Marsaxlokk and Wied iz-Zurrieq, where you can indulge in scrumptious seafood, local cuisine and an optional boat ride with picture-perfect views of the villages, rocky cliffs, caves and the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea

Memorable Visit
Rama-Pixie, 03-09-2022
What a fabulous day! We thoroughly enjoyed every moment, seeing and exploring pre-historical sites as well as 21st century Malta! Christoper, our guide, was knowledgable, friendly and made us feel special and pampered. He found time in our day to visit the spectacular Blue Grotto and relax with a delicious lunch in a local restaurant. Thanks to Christopher, we saw sites we could never find on our own. If you want a unique and memorable visit in Malta, call Christopher at The Island Traveller!
Excellent private tour for anyone curious about some of the history of the Maltese islands

Couldn't recommend this experience more to anyone curious about some of the history of the Maltese islands. The archaeological sites and fishing villages were incredible, but what sets this tour aside from others is the informative and attentive tour guide. Christopher gave us a much greater insight into the sites and Maltese history than we would have acquired otherwise, and even covered the cost of visiting an additional site not originally in our itinerary. Despite being a full day tour with lots of sites to visit, having an air conditioned private vehicle and free bottled water made it very comfortable, and didn't leave us exhausted at the end. Overall, an excellent tour which is well worth the price.

Our driver Christopher was the highlight of our tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about Malta and our day was planned out to where we wanted to go. We ate the local fish and drank great local wine based on his recommendation. I loved this tour and having wifi and water provided was a plus.
A monumental experience

Our driver guide, Christopher, was very knowledgeable, professional and courteous, and made helpful recommendations at each site. He provided listening devices for self-guided tours of each site, gave us time to wander through a market at a fishing village, made an excellent lunch recommendation and offered an optional opportunity for a boat ride. He gave us all the time we needed at each stop and had cold water waiting for us. We enjoyed our day very much and highly recommend this tour. We had expected this to be a group tour, but it turned out to be only my husband and myself.
Beyond expectations
