Your first stop includes a visit to the Tarxien Temple, which offers a unique collection of circa 3000 B.C. sanctuaries.

Hagar Qim Temples
Your tour then continues to the Hagar Qim and Mnejidra Megalithic Temples. Set in a rural area near the village of Zurrieq, this ancient temple which dates back to 3300 B.C. has the largest and heaviest megaliths of all the temple sites around the Maltese Islands. The Mnajidra Temple, less than 1 kilometer from Hagar Qim, offers unique views of the high cliffs that characterize the coast of this part of the island.

Ghar Dalam Cave and Museum
Just before the fisherman's village of Marsaxlokk on your way back, you will discover Ghar Dalam. The Ghar Dalam Cave is a highly important site where the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta, which dates back 7,000 years ago, was discovered. The site is a huge 80-meter cavern which is opened to visitors, and the small annexed museum contains fossil remains of animals such as hippopotamus and volatives which were found in the cave and date back to the Pleistocene era. Following this last visit, your tour will end with you being returned to your point of origin.

Excellent Tour with a great guide
Russell W, 04-02-2022
I am an archeology enthusiast and with my wife we ​​decided to book this tour.
We were extremely satisfied, we visited Tarxien the Ghar Dalam cave and the majestic Hagar Qim temple! Impressive! The pick up with the driver Jonathan was punctual and precise, but the guide Dennis was the real surprise, beyond all expectations. The guys was polite, with a great culture and professionalism and also a little humor, he explained us the story of these unique Neolithic temples in the world. We felt very comfortable and comfortable throughout the tour. The used car was spotless.
I was so satisfied that we booked a second excursion to Gozo with the same agency for the next day.
Great half-day tour of temples, ruins and caves!
