Know More about this tour

Palazzo Parisio: Located in the heart of picturesque Naxxar, this 18th CenturyPalace is a place of wonder that begs to be explored. Onyour visit you will discover the intricate nuances of Maltashistoric nobility and their enchanting way of life. Touring thisstately home offers great insight and sparks the imagination whether you find yourself seeking inspiration from the grandBallroom, the detailed Family Chapel or the fabulous walledGardens and Orangery.

Your next stop is Clapham Junction. Clapham Junction is covered with very puzzling and mysterious groove in the rock. They appear to be ancient roadways of some sort. They do not appear to be directly linked to the building of any of Malta's megalithic and they do cross the small island and seem to be found on the higher and rockier surfaces. There can be many of them in the same area, beside each other. Sometimes they are a solitary pair that can go on for miles. One of the mysteries and frustrations of Malta's ancient and magnificent history is that there are no records left of it by those people. No written word or pictorial guide was left by the Temple Builders and Cart Rut users.

Yourwill then drive toTheBuskett Gardens, located in thefertile valley of Wied il-Luq, Siggiewi. The gardens are at theirbest in Spring but they offer shade from the harsh mid-Summer sun and offer a quiet place for a walk in the Wintermonths. Verdala Palace, an official residence of the Presidentof Malta, is located on the edge of the Gardens. A coffee breakis also included in this tour where you will taste the deliciousand traditional Pastizzi.

Your final stop isDingli Cliffs, located less than akilometer to the south west of the village of Dingli. The cliffsare 220 meters high and are the highest point in Malta! Anisolated chapel makes for a charming landmark. Built in the17th century, the Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene offers someof the most beautiful views you can get from these cliffs. Fromhere you can also see the tiny uninhabited islet of Filfla.

During this excursion you will tour onboard aVintage Bus, a bus that is now rare to see on the Maltese Islands.

    Palazzo Parisio was a real highlight. Really glad I had a chance to visit this "palace." It was a nice tour to some interesting places and great scenery. The wooden "bus" was a bit uncomfortable, but overall a relaxing tour with a very nice guide. If you are interested in a different kind of sightseeing tour and want to avoid the big bus tours, this could be fun.

    Tour was just ok, could have been done on your own for cheaper. Riding in the old school bus was cool

    We had an enjoyable morning and this tour plus two routes of the Hop on Hop off bus allowed us to see a great deal of the island. The tour leader was very informative.

    This was almost enjoyable day. Our tour guide was very good. The places were good to visit. Recommend the tour.

    The description given in the overview of this trip is not wholly accurate. You do not visit the Palazzo Parisio garden and the only part of Buskett Gardens you see is a limited view from the cafe next to the car park. According to Viator the trip we went on was correct but the overview has not been amended.

    This was a most unusual tour but it was really enjoyable. We went off in an old fashioned boneshaker bus and took in most of the island starting with the interesting Parisio Palace and ending with coffee and pastries in the Buskett Gardens. The guide was very informative and gave us plenty of time to look around. The only minor downside was that we didn't see Clapham Junction - it was not mentioned and we have no idea where it was as we later realised we'd forgotten to ask!

    Very fun small group tour! Would recommend anyone to go on this tour. Rode on a fun, cute, blue ferry. The Tour guide, Mario, was very informative throughout the trip and answered any questions we had. Great tour for pics and history.
