    Memorabile il giro in barca alla Blue Grotto e bella l’esperienza al mercato di Marsaxlokk. La guida molto esaustiva e parlava bene l’italiano.

    Three buses left for the same route. Two of them rather new, but the one we got was at most from the 90s. The seats we're either broken or damaged, no AC and besides that the Bus seemed completly overwhelmed with the entire Journey.

    L'excursion n'a pu être réalisée. Il était prévu au départ de venir nous chercher à l'hôtel. Après une demie heure d'attente, j'appelle et j'apprends que le lieu de prise en charge a changé et qu'un mail aurait dû mettre envoyé. Je ne l'ai pas reçu et on a même tenté de me joindre en ne me voyant pas au lieu du rendez vous.

    Belle petite excursion sans plus. Le port de pêche vaut la peine d’être vu par contre le marché n’a rien d’exceptionnel. Le périple en bateau afin de visiter la grotte bleue en vaut la peine.

    Concernant le marché : fuyez !! Au lieu de trouver un marché typique on se retrouve avec des stands de contrefaçons (Nike Adidas …. ) une catastrophe

    Overall good! Beautiful places, but short staying time in Marsaxlokk. There was a lot of people at the market, so it took time to go through. Would recommend everyone to visit these places though.

    Hearded like cattle to the Blue Grotto, quick boat ride then straight back on the bus, no time for local cafés or shops, arrive at the market, by the time we found a toilet for my wife we had enough time to buy an ice cream then back on the bus! Lunch, that is a joke!

    Too much waiting time to change the bus, the blue grotto is not included in the price (8€/person). There wasn't any market this day. We basically just went on a bus ride for 4 hours.

    Nice little market but once you’ve seen the first five stalls you’ve seen the full market. Lots of fake goods too. The best part of this trip was the boat to the blue grotto. The man was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was amazing to see the caves. Definitely worth a visit.

    Lack of information either from the marketing write up or from the accompanying guide. We did not go on the boat ride because we were unable to cope with the steep climb back to the bus: The quide failed to advise us private transport was available costing just 1 Euro per petson,
