The boat tour of the grand harbour was the best part - Gerald was a delightful guide. It was awesome to see and learn about the 3 Fortified cities and the history behind them - this involved quite a bit of walking, an opportunity to get in some steps while on holiday

The trip was outstanding. The tour guide (Jennifer) was second to none. A very knowledgeable & genuinely nice lady!! Would highly recommend

It is a good tour. Jackie is a good guide. We could use some more time in Cospicua. The boat ride was the highlight.

Brilliant tour! Tour guide was amazing. I did skip the lunch to have extra time in Mdina though

Very well organized trip with great content- excellent!
