    What a desappointment! Actually, I paid 26€ for a trip that I could have done easily by normal bus for 2€ ! On the way out, the pick up in the different hotels took more than an hour (for a half day trip)! The explanations of the guide are of no interest! I just lost 26€! My advice: go by yourself with your guide book. It's easier, faster and cheaper!

    We had an amazing day for the tour. Dane, our guide was very friendly, professional and informative. Taking to boat ride to be up close to the grotto is a must see. Marksaloxx fish market was crowded but fun to visit. We didnt have enough time there however. Luckily my husband and I had been in Marksaloxx the day before which was beneficial for us.
    We were picked up on time and it was a good way to see sights in Malta.

    I love the Marsaxlokk and Blue Grotto areas, but I was disappointed with this trip. The schedule was not as advertised and the tour was little more than bus transportation for free time at Marsaxlokk and the Blue Grotto, so it wasn't really a tour as such. Also, they gave us time at another village which wasn't in the schedule but wasn't of interest to me anyway.

    We had a wonderful guide who did an excellent job explaining everything. We enjoyed the trip.

    This is a must do tour. Such beautiful sights of the caves and coastline. And the Market in Marsaxlokk is impressive. It's was 42 degrees very hot unusual heat wave but plenty places to grab ice creams and drinks to escape the heat.
    Thanks for lovely tour.

    Four of us took this tour. We were picked up on time and proceeded to fill the bus around the island. Linda, our English guide, was very welcoming and accommodating. She lost no time in getting us to the important sites. We had plenty of time to look around, shop for souvenirs, take pictures or grab a snack. At the end of the tour, we asked to be dropped off near the Hypogeum instead of our hotel. This was no problem and we made it to our next tour with time to spare. A great experience!
    The only thing that needs attention is the volume of the microphone on the bus. It may have been Linda's voice or the equipment, but it was difficult to hear the English descriptions over the air conditioning and the non-English passengers who chose to talk when the tour was not in their language.

    Ahhhh, NO THANK YOU! First of all, we were made to wait for 30 minutes to be picked up by a Hop On/Hop Off bus. So there isn't a boat that takes you to the Grotto initially or to the market. The cost of this trip does NOT include the Grotto boat tour!! Wasn't told that either! As far as the Market goes, I've absolutely seen way better markets. It's just not impressive at all. Lastly, while on the top of the bus, while driving to the grotto, you couldn't hear a thing that was coming from the tour guide. So that was pointless. Overall, I would not do this excursion. But the hop on/ hop off ticket for a day and get off where you want. It's not worth the or your time!! So bummed.

    The blue grotto was nice, although brief.

    Unfortunately we were taken to Rabat rather than Valletta - they announced it on the bus that the Valletta market wasn't on but that we should have all been told, although we hadn't had any communication to say that the plan had been changed. Rabat was ok but there wasn't much there - we spent far too much time there for how little it was. The market at Rabat was also massively disappointing - considering we'd been taken there on the basis that the Valletta market wasn't on we were expecting it to be an interesting place for shopping. The market was actually like what you'd have in the UK maybe on Albert Square? - selling things like huge bottles of laundry detergent and trashy clothes. We looked around for a bit but very quickly realised this wasn't the sort of market we'd been expecting, it was more just for locals to get cheap deals on the essentials. If Valletta is unavailable in future I'd suggest this tour could go elsewhere for an alternative.

    I enjoyed this tour as I did get to see the famous Blue Grotto of Malta along with the fishing village of Marsaxlokk. What disappointed me a bit was this was advertised as a half day tour, but some of that time was actually spent waiting around for a transfer from a minibus to a larger coach. But otherwise I did enjoy this trip and would certainly recommend the boat ride to the grotto even though there is a minor extra charge for it
