Our guide Anna was excellent and managed the group very well. We were originally signed up for a private tour but the company did not respond and Viatour was unable to solve the problem. We booked the night before for this tour and the response was immediate. The bus was a little late but the communication was excellent. The lunch was average but quick and well organised. Totally worth the cost, which was half the cost of a private tour. The commentary was great, and Anna fluent in three languages. Different small groups for different languages would have been better.

Mark is an exceptional guide and has such an easy manner that makes people comfortable and at ease. His knowledge of Maltese, English, French snd Italian is quite remarkable and he can so easily flow from one language to another. He is extremely mannerly and helpful.

Excellent activity, enriching to do during your trip especially with our guide Sarah who brings us lots of knowledge about this island of Gozo and who greatly contributed to making our day as pleasant as possible. Thanks to her !!

Super cool. The boat ride is very nice, and long. The skipper and his crew are super friendly and helpful. There's time to explore both islands and still enjoy the sun and crystal clear water!

Awesome! They do everything they can to explain it succinctly. Humor is certainly present. It was one of the best days in Malta. Highly recommended
