Plan is to get in on a cruise ship and see as much as possible in one day. The main idea is to visit the hypogeum and as many as possible megalithic temples. To see the city- I down loaded the walking tour, then followed the map while listening to the modules and checking the photos of each stop on line. Brilliant! I am now familiar with the city, know exactly what are the stops I will spend more time on, and have the opportunity to brush up on historical points I just learned about! All before coming to Valletta! Should be a breeze! I will also have the audio on my iPad when we dock- ready to explore! Again!!!

it was absolutely wonderful! The tour guide, Matthew, was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful in every way. I learned so much from him and would reccoemnd this tour to anyone looking to get to know Valetta, its history, its layout, and its cuisine a little bit more!

A fantastic tour, full of fascinating history. Angel was a brilliant host, full of knowledge and even sharing personal experiences growing up in Malta. Full recommend this walking tour

Great food tour with a lot of different foods to try. Delicious sweet and savory options as well as Maltese coffee. Plenty of food, so come hungry!

Guide was very knowledgeable and kept the group engaged. Did well keeping us moving and finding shade to stand when needed.
