What To Expect

Malta Sightseeing
During the tour you will drive past Cospicua, a double fortified harbor city and the largest of the three. It was also given a title as Citta’ Cottonera, but erroneously the title is now used to define the whole region. You will then arrive in Vittoriosa.

Vittoriosa is ideally situated for safe anchorage and over time it has developed a very long history with maritime, mercantile and military activities. Prior to the establishment of Valletta as capital and main city of Malta, military powers that wanted to rule the Maltese islands would need to obtain control of Vittoriosa due to its significant position in the Grand Harbour. The third city Senglea is also called Civitas Invicta because it managed to resist the Ottoman invasion at the Great Siege of 1565. The name Senglea was given by the grandmaster who built it, Claude De La Sengle. The island on which Senglea lies was joined by a land bridge to Cospicua during the time of the Knights of St. John and as a result, it became peninsular in shape. During this tour you will walk through the various narrow streets shaded by many historic churches and buildings.

You will then drive to the Marsovin Cellars in Marsa. The wine tasting tour commences with a historical introduction amongst original artefacts, followed by an explanation about the process of how the locally grown grapes are pressed, fermented and eventually transformed into wine. A walk through the 400-year-old ‘Ageing Cellars’ is an authentic and true piece of Maltese heritage. The wine sampling is held in the Marsovin wine bar, where trained staff guide guests through a wine tasting session to sample different Marsovin wines accompanied by a selecion of local savouries like maltese bread and cheese. At the bar one also has the opportunity to purchase local Marsovin wines. At the end of this tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel.

Giulia_G, 14-05-2022
Very nice tour. the wine tasting was amazing, the wine has been served with very tasty local nibbles. We learn a lot about the terroir and the native grapes. The your in the three cities was perfect and the guide gave us a lot of really interesting information.
A bit rushed
Andra-Helena E, 09-05-2022
A very short tour through the three cities and Marsovin winery. It felt a bit rushed and unfortunately could not hear the guide for most of the tour. Otherwise the spots we visited were cute and the winery was beautiful. Maybe too packed as there were quite many of us, so was hard to hear the representative of the winery. Would not recommend if you’re looking for a more intimate and personalized wine tasting experience.
Expensive for what you get
Lisa_D, 29-06-2022
Very friendly staff, winery owner and staff very nice just disappointed that the money we paid was expensive for a small sip of the 3 wines on Offer
