Overall rating

4.5
(4 reviews)

Very enjoyable boat tour of Valetta's 3 harbours. Joining instructions were helpful and accurate. We were welcomed on board. The boat was comfortable and not too crowded when we went. I choose to sit outside upstairs, my husband (who doesn't like crowds) sat in the comfortable air conditioned downstairs, both of us had great views, perfect to take great photos. The tour was 90 minutes which was ample time for everyone whichever side you were on, to see everything and didn't feel rushed.

Very nice excursion too bad that the profit of money comes before any human sense my husband walked with crutches and the footbridge was half installed but the guide was much too busy checking her tickets rather than helping us and asking what the walkway is adjusted for people with reduced mobility. Guide not nice at all! Overall very good value for money

The most beautiful view of Valletta and surroundings areas from the harbours . Loved every minute . Booked on line to be sure of spaces on the time we wanted, all very efficient had our names ready for boarding , highly recommend

Absolutely brilliant. Lots of room on board. Ran on schedule and very informative. Didn't feel rushed at all but the time flew by. Would definitely recommend.

I really enjoyed the sightseeing tour of the harbors of Malta, seeing the beauty of the capital Valletta from the sea.
