What To Expect

Mdina
The history of Mdina traces back more than 4000 years. According to tradition it was here that in 60 A.D. that the Apostle St. Paul is said to have lived after being shipwrecked on the Islands. Furthermore it is said that St. Paul resided inside the grotto know as Fuori le Mura (outside the city walls) now known as St. Paul's Grotto in Rabat. Lamp lit by night and referred to as "the silent city", Mdina is fascinating to visit for its timeless atmosphere as well as its cultural and religious treasures.

This is a great place to take your kids to meet world famous cartoon characters. Popeye village is situated just off Mellieha Bay, so its an excellent place to visit before, after, or whilst spending the day at the numerous beaches and coves around the area or just next door at the enclosed Anchor Bay which is equipped with sun beds, umbrellas, showers, bathing areas, splash pools and a small kids area.

Hal Saflieni Hypogeum
The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum is an underground prehistoric burial site. Discovered in 1902 during construction works, the site was first excavated by Fr Emmanuel Magri between 1903 and 1906. Fr Magri died in Tunisia and his excavation notes have not been found. Excavations were taken over by Sir Themistocles Zammit, who continued works until 1911.

The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum is a complex made up of interconnecting rock-cut chambers set on three distinct levels. The complex was used over a span of many centuries, with the earliest remains dating back to about 4000 BC and the more recent remains found dating to the Early Bronze Age (ca 1500BC).

The uppermost Level consists of a large hollow with burial chambers on its sides. This area may have been originally exposed to the sky. Excavations in the early 1990s indicate that there probably was a monumental structure marking the entrance.

A doorway leads to the Middle Level which contains some of the best known features of the hypogeum. These include intricate red ochre wall paintings and beautifully carved features that recall architectural elements common in contemporaneous megalithic temples.

The deepest of the three levels, known as the Lower Level, is accessed down seven steps from the chamber which is popularly known as the ‘Holy of Holies’.

The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum was first opened to the public in 1908 and since then, it has been visited by thousands of people. Unfortunately, this has had a toll on its delicate microclimate, affecting the preservation of the site and the unique red ochre paintings.

Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja)
The Blue Grotto is located on the southern coast of Malta, west of Wied iz-Zurrieq facing the little deserted islet of Filfla. The site got its name from a British soldier who thought that since the area looks like the Grotta Azzurra in Capri, it deserves the same name, and in fact Blue Grotto is the equivalent for Grotta Azzurra in English. The site is extremely popular, attracting some 100,000 tourists per year, also for diving purposes. The site also features in the film Troy (2004) starring Brad Pitt. The location of this fascinating natural grotto combines with sunlight and the surrounding chain of caves to reflect the phosphorescent colours of the submerged flora and the deep dark shade of blue of the sea.

St. Peter’s Pool
St Peter's Pool is a fantastic swimming spot, a natural lido in the rocks with large areas of flat slab for sunbathing between swims. Follow the narrow road out towards Delimara Lighthouse until you are just past the power station chimney (about 1.5km from the main road), and you'll see a low building on the left with 'St Peter's Pool' signposted on it.

Valletta Waterfront
The Valletta Waterfront, is a promenade in Floriana, Malta, mainly featuring three prominent buildings: a church in the middle, the Pinto Stores or the Pinto Wharf on the left, and the Forni Stores or the Forni Shopping Complex on the right. The buildings were originally stores and warehouses, built in the 18th century, and the design is attributed to Andrea Belli.

The building project was officiated on August 10, 1752, with a mass festivity. The Forni Stores were used as the first British naval bakeries in Malta and were used for this function until 1844. The area is now a hub in Malta's cruise liner business as the Forni Cruise Passenger Terminal, and hosts a concentration of bars, retail outlets, and restaurants. The area was and remains a venue for several concerts and events.

Rahul_S, 21-04-2022
Last week we did a trip to Malta and our driver Kenneth was awesome. He was very helpful, friendly, punctual & very polite. He was very flexible and worked through our list and gave very valuable recommendations on places to visit. The van was clean, provided snacks, water bottles and very considerate for the kids as they had kids juices. Kenneth was very flexible with time and not only shared the local tips but took us to lot of places in Malta. We had such a wonderful experience and lot of credit it goes to Kenneth. Big recommendation for him and the company.
Accommodating and friendly
Marian_G, 27-12-2021
Our driver, Kenneth, was punctual, friendly, and has a very easy going polite attitude. The company gave us flexibility with the time frame of our tour and they also allowed us to make our own list of places to visit.

A few minutes prior to our pick-up, they gave us a heads-up call to say that the driver will be outside in 5 minutes. In addition, the van was clean and they provided local snacks and water bottles for us.

Note: You have to do your own research on the places you intend to visit because the company/driver does not provide background information on them. This is something that the company could consider including to make the experience more meaningful.

Other than that, it was a wonderful experience and we do recommend this company
Kenneth is wonderful

Just what we needed- someone who is knowledgable about the area and who could schedule a full day tour according to our preferences. Got to see the whole island in a day with the activities and sightseeing we were looking to do. Highly recommended!
Really good service, friendly driver.

This day trip was really fun. The driver was late but was more than happy to make up for the delay. Took us where we wanted to go, waited for us and drove us around, making suggestions that would help us see more without going back and forth. Provided solid advice and we could not be happier with the service.
Highly recommended.
