Mr. NEVILLE accompanied us, in addition to telling us the history and the beauties that we encountered from time to time, with completeness of information and anecdotes on the situations that occurred, he also described the Malta of now. He was extremely kind because being us Italians, instead of letting us use the earphones, not being a very large group, he translated us into our language in a more than understandable way, thanks for your availability

Angela was a well informed and lovely guide. She was able to show us interesting sides to Valletta as well as the famous points of interest. The pace was easy and not difficult. We enjoyed her input for St John’s Co Cathedral and it was well worth this part as we completely skipped the huge queue for entry.

Very good visit which makes us discover the history of Malta. The guide was very pleasant and took the time to accompany us well even if the schedule was exceeded. I recommend this very informative visit

Excellent service and quality, Neville (our local guide) pleasant and knowledgeable of the island. If we return, we will definitely rely on them for further excursions. Definitely recommended!

The tour guide Irena was knowledgeable and professional. I enjoyed myself and would highly recommend.
