The private tour was not available therefore took this small group tour which exceeded my expectation. Our guide, Matthew, was knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Very pleased with it.
With so much to see in such a compact area, a walking tour is by far the most convenient way to experience UNESCO-listed Valletta. But large groups can be crowded and impersonal. This Valletta walking tour is limited to 30 people, meaning personal attention as you check off the sights: perfect for first-time visitors or anyone with limited time.
Join your guide and small group in the heart of Valletta. After a brief overview of the city’s history since the Knights of St. John (Hospitallers) built it in 1565, stroll past star attractions from the Baroque era: the Auberge de Castille, St. John’s Co-Cathedral, and the Church of St. Paul’s Shipwreck. Hear tales of Maltese history as you view the Grandmaster’s Palace.
See sights from the new Parliament building and the ruins of the Royal Theater to Fort St. Elmo and the Siege Bell War Memorial. Wander the charming Barrakka Gardens with their sweeping views across Grand Harbor as you learn about modern Valletta. Finally, bid guide and group farewell in central Valletta.
I took the three hour Valletta walking tour today with Mathew and was not disappointed. He was so knowledgable about the history of the Knights of St John and Malta’s experience during WW2, through to the present day. He was happy to answer our questions...More
Unfortunately I was really disappointed with the organisation of this walking tour. I’ve done walking tours in lots of other cities before. Firstly I doesnt even state on trip advisor where the meeting place is and how long the tour lasts. There is no contact...More
Great informative tour! Matthew is a really nice guy who lead us trough the south eastern part of valletta. He knew what amount of information you can process in a three hour tour. Made it all very lively and interesting.
