Reviews

Good intro to Valletta

Great way to learn about the lovely Valletta. Tour lady was a bit frazzled when her microphone wasn’t charged but we managed without the headphones. She had lots of information about Malta. Would recommend to any first time visitors to Malta.
A must do in Valletta! Amazing tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide

Amazing tour and our guide was very knowledgeable!
The only thing that went wrong was that the Viator app was showing that the meeting point was on Republic Street (no number) and the GPS coordinates took us in front of the grandmaster palace. We waited for 10 mins and when no one arrived, I phone the tour guide and they said that the meeting point was outside the New Parliament. We rushed to the meeting point (fortunately Valletta is a small town and it only took us 6 mints) and our tour guide was there. The tour has already started and we missed a bit in the beginning and missed the name of our tour guide, however she compensated us for the missed time by extending the tour my extra 10 mins. She was such a lovely lady with a great sense of humour.
This tour was definitely worth it and we learnt a lot!
Great tour

Our guide Angel was very nice and knew everything possible about Valetta. She guided us through nice streets and told us a lot about history and monuments while keeping us in shade almost all the time. Nicw touch was that she brought some photos with her to share with us and showed us how certain locations looked before and so on.

Would recommend to anyone who wants to find out a lot about the city in about 2,5 hours.
Interesting and beautiful tour with a lovely guide

Walking round the back streets was awesome. The view over the harbour was also pretty good. The host gave us a recommendation for the best ftira in Valetta. We went afterwards for lunch and it was delicious!
A little long and hot but informative

Informative nice tour guide. However, we felt like there could have been a bit more history of Malta in general woven into the tour. Valletta was heavily bombed in the war and it seemed like every building we walked by that was the comment about it. Also, not the tour guide’s fault but it was almost 103 degrees when we took the tour and it is HOT. Overall you could probably do this tour in under an hour and if it’s hot, definitely take one of the bus tours they have instead because you will just melt and it won’t be enjoyable.
