What people are saying about Birgu

A very changeable day weather wise. But thank god stopped and sunny for trip. I was looking forward to it and not disappointed. Outside harbour a little bit choppy but it’s the sea so what do you expect. But I loved it!

It was perfect, I recommend it to everyone who goes to Malta, the only downside that I don't think is right is that the explanations only say it in English and not in Spanish.

The cruise started a half hour later, but other than that everything else was really great. Total value for money!

Very interesting cruise
