What To Expect

Dingli Cliffs
The sightseeing group start off by heading along the coastal countryside towards Dingli Cliffs, situated on the west of Malta.  

The main attraction of these cliffs is the sheer breath-taking beauty of the cliffs themselves, which are still surrounded by untouched stretches of the Maltese countryside. There is also a tiny chapel perched on the very edge of the cliffs, dedicated to St Mary Magdalene, where we will stop for those interested in taking some panoramic pictures of this beautiful rugged coast.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Fomm Ir-Rih
We will then proceed to venture towards the off-beaten tracks of Fomm ir-Rih and Bahrija areas. These are unspoilt and secluded areas offering crystal clear blue waters, tranquil cliffs and valleys and some of the best scenic views of our Maltese landscape. We will lunch in Mgarr which is a small rural village surrounded by rich farmland and vineyards.

Lunch is not included in the price.  This trip may be customised: time duration, pick up point, museum visits, transportation or special requests.

3 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Leaving these picturesque rural areas, we will then tap upon an important part of Malta’s early Christian history - the ancient catacombs in Rabat, where early Maltese Christians used to bury their dead. These magnificent architectural complexes served as burial grounds for more than 1,000 Maltese Christians between the 3rd and 6th century AD and were also a popular site for religious pilgrimages in the 12th century.

Entrance fees to the catacombs or historical places in Rabat are not included.  This tour may be customised: time duration, pick up point, museum visits, transportation or special requests.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Free

After visiting the catacombs, we will then head towards the fortified medieval city of Mdina, which is Malta`s former capital city.  There, you will venture through narrow winding streets, dating back to the medieval times, whilst experiencing different styles of architecture and baroque buildings of great historical importance. The city is surrounded by imposing bastions that offer a magnificent panoramic view of the island. 

Entrance fees to historical places in Mdina are not included.  This trip may be customised: time duration, pick up point, museum visits, transportation or special requests.

Cynthia and her partner were both very informative and knowledgeable. They were happy to change the tour itinerary as it was so hot and added in a stop for us to go on a short boat trip which provided much needed cooling!
We got to see some of the main sights and they were good company.
Interesting experience

Great trip, great experience.  We saw the real Malta, full of historical and natural monuments.  Our guides, charming people, showed us different faces of this small but beautiful country. We were in good hands. I sincerely recommend.
Cynthia and George, thank you both!
(From me especially for Mdina)
One Day Tour of Non Urban Malta

My wife and I wished to see the island of Malta. Our requirements were to see the sites of the Neolithic history, the towns both inland and on the coast plus the main physical sites such as th Dingli cliffs.
We are not shopper’s, we do not want lunch we do need coffee stops,
George and Cynthia own the business, they picked us up at hotel at 8.30 in their 8 seater Benz bus with very effective air conditioning as it was very hot. They supplied water and returned us to our accomodation at about 1900pm.
We achieved our objective!
Thoroughly recommend their services.

We can recommend this tour very much. Cynthia was an excellent guide and we could see and visit Blue Grotto, Rabat, Mdina, Dingli etc. but also beautiful places you would not find as a tourist. Our highlight was Mdina and our lunch in a local bar with typical maltese food, that was delicious.
