Overview

This half day guided tour will start with a tour of Malta’s medieval city of Mdina, Malta’s former capital. The narrow, winding streets, dating back to the Arab period, lead to the imposing bastions, commanding a panoramic view of the islands. On the way there, you will discover different styles of architecture, including the medieval 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 Greek’s Gate, we proceed to the cliffs at Dingli. The tour ends with a visit to the San Anton botanical gardens situated near the Presidential Palace, which you will be able to admire from outside.

A very nice trip, with a very good guide, a lady named Anna. In a short time, we saw many things! The lunch was good. We sincerely recommend this tour to whom is interested and doesn't have many time to spend in Malta.
Wonderful city & garden in a short time

Due to the bilingual guided tour (German & English) less facts were presented. Not much freetime. Our guide was friendly. All in all it was still a good tour through Mdina and the garden.
Well organised tour Malta

L’organisation de l’excursion n’était pas optimale : nous avons perdu beaucoup de temps en début de journée à faire l’appel de tous les participants de notre visite en français, ce qui a nécessairement impacté le temps de visite. Nous étions 47, ce qui a nuit à la qualité de la visite. Les lieux visités étaient superbes mais les explications un peu superficielles et le temps de visite trop rapide.
Not well organized.

Tour started with a van pickup at the designated meeting point near the port. The van driver had no signage and as it turned out was picking up folks for multiple tours. Took about 20 minutes to get to a point where the van driver said we were to be transferred to a coach. Had to wait almost 30 minutes for all coaches to arrive (about 6). Again no signage to designate which coach was for which tour. When we got on coach, it turned out that tour was being given in both English and German, which detracts as I don't think you get as much explanation when having to repeat. First stop was the Gardens which were underwhelming. We then went to Mdina which was interesting but could have used more time instead of stop at gardens. Dingli Cliffs were a 10 minute photo stop. We were then taken to another transfer point to get on a van to go back to Valletta since some of the folks on the coach were on a longer tour. We got back to port at Valletta over an hour later that scheduled which didn't leave us much time to visit the beautiful town. The whole tour could have been much more enjoyable if we had skipped Gardens and spent
