Overview

Hop on a time machine and relive the grandeur of prehistoric Maltese monuments like the Tarxien Temples, Mnajdra and Hagar Qim Temples. Believed to be far older than the Great Pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge, these brilliant man-made marvels offer an experience you will never forget. This private self-guided tour includes door pickup and drop, so you don’t have to worry about hiring a car for your trip as we will take care of everything. We will also provide detailed audio guides in 5 different languages and pre-book tickets at museums to ensure that you get in without having to wait in lines. And when you’re done relishing the temples and sites, the trip also concludes with visits to two fishing villages. Marsaxlokk and Wied iz-Zurrieq, where you can indulge in scrumptious seafood, local cuisine and an optional boat ride with picture-perfect views of the villages, rocky cliffs, caves and the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea.

Best. Excursion. Ever!!!

The most amazing experience you can have in Malta. Our driver Christopher was just an absolute gem. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and just wonderful all around. The sites were amazing! And if you can take the boat ride, do it. Unfortunately, they can’t always do it because of weather but we got lucky. It’s an extra charge though but not much. The lunch spot we were recommended was fabulous! 15/10 would do again!!!

Amazing accommodating adventure!

This tour was an epic experience and fun filled day! Christopher chauffeured us around like celebrities and was truly helpful and informative. We visited these amazing temple ruins that predate history itself. We also visited the beautiful fishing town of Marsaxlokk and the stunning cliffs at Blue Grotto. We highly recommend adding the Blue Grotto boat ride to your trip for only a few more Euros. Christopher went above and beyond explaining Maltese history and archeology. He was extremely flexible with us and allowed us to pick our own restaurant for lunch, Haber 16, which was also on our bucket list. This tour was great and we were able to knock out so many sight seeing adventures in one day!

We had a great day out with Christopher, our driver/guide. He was very engaging and full of interesting information about the tour, but also about life in Malta more generally. At each site, he set things up for us (including providing audio guides) and then let us experience the sites on our own, at our own pace, which was perfect. The temples are amazing to see and the fishing villages very picturesque. Highly recommend this tour!

Christopher was extremely personable and knowledgeable. He was so professional, clearly demonstrating a deep knowledge of the archeological sites. He also gave us great insight into the cultural roots of the Maltese people. Christopher is a treasure and Viator is lucky to have him. If possible, clients wanting this tour should ask for him. It was a fantastic experience.

The tour was outstanding. The driver and his trainee were very well informed, friendly, and helpful. They were able to adjust/add to my tour a location I wanted to visit without any problems. They are quite professional and the sights included in the tour were breath taking.

Excellent tour by Christopher of some of the Neolithic sites which are really worth visiting and very well presented by Malta Heritage. Also nice to visit two of the lovely fishing villages, including one where we had a fine fish lunch. Christopher was a first class host and tour guide. He was a mine of information on the history of the island and any aspects of Malta. Highly recommended!

Personalized tour of Malta by a local

Chris was incredibly friendly and welcoming to us on our last full day in Malta. Because we traveled in the December off season, it basically was a private tour for the day to see the historical megalithic sites and viewpoints. Definitely take the opportunity to visit the Blue Grotto by boat if the weather allows. The color of the water is surreal and stunning. Chris was patient and allowed us to take our time at each location, provided a local's perspective, and shared some Maltese phrases for us to practice. Grazzi!

Great Private Tour
David_L

We would definitely recommend this tour and already have to others. With its Hotel pickup and drop off it is a breeze. Christopher was an awesome host and so full of knowledge. We can only hope he is who takes you around to the sights. For us it was perfectly timed even though it was at your own pace. Vehicle was clean and extremely comfortable. The only thing that may have made it better is if the guide actually took you through the sites (COVID-SMH), but the audio version was acceptable. Again we would highly recommend and want to thank Christopher again for the great day. Tony and Jennifer

Great tour!

We very much enjoyed this tour and Christopher was a terrific guide. The archaeological sites are fascinating and the audio guides were very good (they apparently instituted these because of COVID). Christopher gave us extra info and answered all our questions before and after each site. He’s very knowledgeable and passionate about Malta and its history. The fishing village and blue grotto were nice stops, but because of bad weather the market was minimal and the boats at the grotto weren’t running, so we didn’t get the full experience. Christopher did not rush us at all - everything was at our pace and the transportation was very comfortable. Even after the tour was done Christopher continued to be helpful. The next evening I texted to ask if the blue grotto boats had run, and he responded immediately, even reaching out to another guide to find out, but still getting us an answer within 3 minutes!!

Superb Tour.

Absolutely brilliant tour from start to finish, worth ever penny. Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable both about the prehistory/archaeology of the region, and all aspects of Malta's culture, economy and people. This is a truly private tour, totally flexible and adaptable on the day. Lots of information given about all the stops, and then as much or little time as we wanted to explore the sites with an excellent audio tour which is not normally available to visitors. The car was incredibly comfortable. The recommended restaurant was wonderful, probably the best meal and service we had during our week in Malta. We lingered, as sadly the weather was not great, but, this is a private tour, and our guide took us to the right place at the right times to get around the slight inconvenience of weather. Absolutely fabulous tour. Thank-you.

Amazing Private Tour
Stuart_D
, Oct 2021
Much to our surprise, this fantastic trip to the Archaeological sites and fishing villages was in effect, a private tour in a luxury chauffeur-driven Mercedes. It was amazing value as the price included entry fees to the sites and would have taken us perhaps 2-3 days covering the same venues by bus. The optional boat trip to the Blue Grotto caves is operated by a 3rd party and at a mere €8 is highly recommended (weather permitting). Our personable guide, Christopher, gave us a most interesting and insightful glimpse of Malta’s fascinating history and culture. In short go for it to round off your holiday nicely…you won’t regret it !!

Christopher was an excellent guide. We were able to do the tour at our own pace and ask any questions we wanted to. He was knowledge, courteous, and engaging. The sites were exactly as described in the tour information section. We would recommend this tour, just make sure you wear comfortable shoes for the uneven terrain and appropriate clothing for the optional boat ride.

From pick up to drop off amazing, Chris is the font of all knowledge about his beautiful island. Time wasn’t an issue, Chris told you to take your time, enjoy and absorb all around you. The boat trip was a bonus and beautiful, the recommended restaurant for lunch was lovely. Can’t fault one part of the day 🥰
