Best day tour in recent memory
, Dec 2021
My mom and I had a great day tour with Christopher to see Neolithic temples and quaint fishing villages. Christopher was extremely organized, friendly and so knowledgeable! We highly recommend this tour.
Great Private Tour
, Nov 2021
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!
, Nov 2021
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!!
Don’t miss out! Book it

Chris is very knowledgeable and has no problem answering any questions. He recommended a very good place to eat and even stopped at view point along the way to different sites

Superb Tour.
, Oct 2021
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.

Great tour, exceeding expectations.
, Oct 2021
Everything was perfect, highly recommended. Chris gave us lots of very interesting information on all the visited sites and Malta overall. The lunch recommendation was also great. Thank you for the experience.
Amazing Private Tour
, 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 !!
Brilliant day out
, Oct 2021
The temples were stunning and well worth the visit. Our driver Christopher was knowledgeable, charming and friendly. Made the day so special
Christopher was a great tour guide!
, Oct 2021
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.
Dream trip to the temples
, Sep 2021
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 🥰
