What To Expect

St. John's Co-Cathedral
Your guide will meet you at the entrance of Valletta at 10.00am in front of the New Parliament on Freedom Square and proceed on a 3 hour guided tour of Malta's capital city. 

Valletta, an architectural gem, is a monument in itself founded by the Knights of St John following the victory of the Great Siege of 1565.

Your private tour guide will lead you through this unique city and highlight the history behind the imposing facades. Valletta is a planned fortress city, a living testimony of Malta's rich heritage.

The walk will finish with a guided tour of St. John's Co-Cathedral, the former Conventual Church of the Knights of Malta.

This unique church is one of the finest examples of baroque architecture and one of the world’s greatest cathedrals. (Tickets to the Cathedral can be bought on the day and are not included in the tour price).

Wonderful intro to the city.

This was an outstanding mix of high politics and daily life, history and architecture, the medieval and the modern. Highly recommended; definitely worth the time. I would also recommend adding the cathedral as the personal tour of the architecture and the two Carravaggios was excellent.
Amazing tour guide and tour of Valetta

Marisa was very knowledgable and i particularly liked the stories about the knights and the grand masters, my favourite part was the view from Barakah gardens and the inside of St Johns Cathedral .

Wonderful tour this morning with such a quirky and informative guide. We learnt so much from her and saw so much of the city. We were told interesting facts about the Lent biscuits! When you visit Valletta do book this tour when you arrive!
Excellent tour with an excellent guide!

This tour is a perfect way to discover Valetta.
I forgot the name of the guide (I did the tour on Friday, the 3rd of September) but she was really nice and knew what she was talking about.
It was really interesting to know the history of Valetta and Malta in general.
I enjoyed every minute of it, I recommend!
Good tour
