    We hired a private car with driver and guide . She met us on time and the driver was good. We found the guide knowledgable but not very personable. When her mic went out shortly after our tour started she did not speak loud enough for us to hear and when problem was brought to her attention she said yes that’s a problem but did not even attempt to speak louder. Most of the time driving she did not really talk about the surroundings. Once we where stopped at different sites she did seem knowledgeable and would answer questions.

    We visited Malta as part of a cruise and was able to save some money by using Viator with a private tour. Our Guide met us at the Port and began sharing very interesting information about Malta as soon as we closed the doors to the van. We were a party of six; two of us have visited Malta before, but four had not. We discussed the best places to visit with the Guide so that the four would get a good idea of what Malta has to offer. He listened to our questions and gave complete answers. As the day went on, he realized that we may be running short on time to visit the main Cathedral in Valletta, so he contacted people he knew and made sure we would be able to get in for the visit. Sure enough, we made it just in the nick of time and they were waiting on us. We appreciate the extra effort he gave our party and would book again.

    This tour was great. We were on a cruise so had limited time. Julia was our guide and Lele was our driver. We quickly and efficiently moved about the island seeing the highlights. Our guide was well-versed in the rich history of Malta and ensured we saw the sights and learned some history. Medieval Medina was the highlight along with the colorful fishermen’s harbor.

    Malta trip was wonderful. We had a private van that took us all over this gorgeous island. We did some walking through a Palace and towns. Our guide was super. She was a local that knew her way around this island. I would recommend the tour for anyone.

    The trip began with a visit to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk, which lived up to the reputation of a laid back village. The tour continued to Valletta where we walked through the city and to the Parliament Building. We were fortunate to watch a 5D movie of Valletta which explained the history of the city. It was unfortunate to have several buildings being renovated and therefore not able to visit. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared the beauty of this historical city. Would recommend.
