For those not purchasing anything, there’s the chance to watch skilled craftsmen at work in their stores. The village is one of the most popular stops on local tours, and going with a guide will help give you a deeper understanding of local craft traditions.

Great tour
Our guide, Anna was really amazing. Although we were with a group there was time to explore individually and everything was relaxing about this experience. Be prepared and bring a hat and wear light clothes if you are visiting in hot weather. Definitely recommend this if you don’t have a car and you want to learn a bit about the historical places :)

Action packed tour - we went to the gardens, dinglicliffs, Mdina, Rabat and briefly to Mosta all in one day. Saw so much in such a short space of time!

Mdina, Rabat, Dingli cliffs, San Anton gardens, Ta' Qali & Mosta guided tour
On time collection from hotel. San Anton gardens are an under funded shadow of what they once may have been. Anna our guide was well organised and very knowledgeable. Enough time given to each of the stops to get an appreciation of what they are and at a sensible pace in the heat. Ample convenience stops.

Mdina, Rabat, Dingli cliffs, San Anton gardens, Ta' Qali & Mosta guided tour
I would thoroughly recommend this trip. The guide was excellent and very informative and the sights spectacular. The only aspect I didn't particularly like was the lunch but that is because I am a fussy eater!

Mdina, Rabat, Dingli cliffs, San Anton gardens, Ta' Qali & Mosta guided tour
Walking through Mdina was the highlight of the tour- our guide Lisa brought Rabat and Mdina to life for us. There was a large group of us tourists and Lisa handled everything perfectly and was extremely knowledgeable about the history and area we toured.

Mdina, Rabat, Dingli cliffs, San Anton gardens, Ta' Qali & Mosta guided tour
This tour sells itself. Unfortunately, the tour guide was limited in her presentation skills. She would begin her comments before the group caught up with her and had a tendency to look away from us when she spoke which made it difficult to hear her comments. That aside, she took us to wonderful locations and seem to be knowledgeable when you directly ask her questions.

Mdina, Rabat, Dingli cliffs, San Anton gardens, Ta' Qali & Mosta guided tour
Overal we had a great day with a very good guide. The Soundsystem in the bus was not strong enough to capture everything. Mdina is a must see. At lunch there should have been more wine.

Julia the guide was excellent and she made the tour worth it with her excellent knowledge of all the places we visited and about Malta. The tour was well arranged with amazing locations. Food was excellent and beyond expectations. Only one small critic is wish we had more time to explore things.

Mdina, Rabat, Dingli cliffs, San Anton gardens, Ta' Qali & Mosta guided tour
It was a really good tour. 4 starts because the English speaking tour guide was 30 min late and it was chilly out, and we had to get a new bus because the microphone didn’t work on the first one. After we got started, the tour guide was VERY knowledgeable and the stops were awesome. The provided lunch was good in Rabat. I loved that we saw the gates to King’s Landing from Game of Thrones! I would go on this tour again and I even tipped the guide. She made up for being late with her knowledge and the sights.

What to Buy at the Crafts Village

Two of the village's standout stores are Phoenician Glassblowers and Mdina Glass; both produce colorful, high-quality glassworks. Another of Malta’s best buys is gold and silver work, and the making of intricate filigree jewelry is a national specialty. All Maltese silver and gold products should be hallmarked. A design found across the island is the delicate interlaced Maltese cross, symbol of the Knights of St. John who occupied Malta between 1530 and 1792.
