Know More about this tour

During this full day tour you will first visit Mosta, a central town famous for its Rotunda church. The Rotunda also famous as the Mosta Dome is the third largest unsupported dome in the whole World with an internal diameter of 37.2 meters and walls nearly 9.1 meters thick. This church was built in the 18th Century and became known throughout the country in 1942 when during World War II, a dropped bomb failed to explode, thus sparing the lives of some 300 people.

The next stop is the town of Ta'Qali, located nearby was once a British WWII outpost, but has been converted to a village for local handicrafts. You will be able to watch local artisans at work blowing elaborate glass art pieces, intricately assembling original silver filigree jewelry and many more. This is the perfect place to pick up treasures that will remind you of your Malta visit.

You will then visit Mdina. Mdina is built on a plateau in the center of the island, the city's old Baroque buildings, cathedral and magnificent bastion walls dominate the rural skyline. Mdina, once the capital city of Malta has had many names including Melita (Roman Occupation), Medina (Arabic Occupation), Citta' Nobile (Knights of St. John) and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today is also referred as the Silent City since it inspires tranquility at any time of the day or night. The only way to really experience and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from the high bastion walls.

Finally you will visit Valletta, Malta's Capital City and a World Heritage Site. Valletta contains buildings from the 16th century onwards, built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as Knights Hospitaller. You will walk through the bustling streets and to Barracca Gardens for a breathtaking panorama of the Grand Harbour.

Free time for lunch will be given in Valletta.

    Firstly the coach was late picking up and by the time we picked up at the last hotel we were over an hour late. However we still manged to finish the tour on time. We only had 45 minutes free time in Valetta to have lunch. Having been on the go for over 4 hours a longer stop was most definitely needed. I enjoyed the time in Mdina and would have like to see more. We had a very brief tour of Valetta and we actually went back the next day on our own so that we could see more. The crafts village in my opinion was be left out as hardly anyone bought anything. The public transportation is so easy in Malta I would not book a trip again but go on public buses.

    I have given this tour 2 stars purely on the basis that the tour guide and driver were very good. However, having booked the tour in advance, confirming we required hotel pick-up by phone 48 hrs in advance of the tour and receiving an email reminding us of the pick up time the night before ... the coach did not turm up. We were outside the hotel 10 minutes in advance of pick - up time as advised i.e 0840 - pick up 0850 waited until 0920 and then called the tour operator Supreme Travel as advised. They abruptly told me they would check and call me back. Instead they sent me a text saying Minibus 058 was on its way now 0930, At about 0940 I sent a further text saying no minibus had turned up when a car no minibus arrived. The driver told us he had come to pick us up told us his boss was a liar and then drove us to another hotel in a different town and picked up a lady who said she had been waiting an hour. Eventually the driver caught up with the bus having missed the visit to Mosta and no part way through the Crafts Village tour. We had about 15 mins left of this part of the tour before we were wisked off to a glass factory. Then quickly on to Mdina for a brisk but very informative guided walking tour before being taken to Valetta. Again a brisk but informative albeit short walking tour before being given 45 mins free time. After this we had a good guided tour of the Cathedral.
    At about 6'oclock that evening I got a text from the tour operator Supreme Travel asking me Which Minibus? ,,,,,, remember they told me Minibus 058 was on its way earleir in the day!!! Unbelievable. We paid over 80 for these tickets and I never experienced such disorganised and deceitful treatment on trips booked through Tripadvisor or Viator. Very poor indeed.

    Good, very informative. Lot to do in one day and we were often rushed, but we took the time to go back to things on our own.

    An amazing tour guide Daiva Griguoliene, she gave us a lot of interesting information about Malta history, life and culture.
    Thank you so much for an amazing trip.

    A well organised trip with a very knowledgeable guide. A 5D Malta cinema experience and entrance to Mosta and St. John's church in Valletta, was also included in the price which made it very good value for money. A lot of walking was necessary so wear comfy shoes!
