This was a lovely trip, well balanced activities and really nice staff on board. I especially enjoyed the speed boat tour to the caves and crystal lagoon, well worth paying 15 euros extra. Time is tight on Victoria on Gozo. We opted to have lunch but with hindsight we should have just had a sandwich and spent more time in the citadel which is amazing.

Very nice trip to see the most famous islands of Malta and the Blue Lagoon. Different options available on board, so you can manage the time and activities of your trip.

This was a brilliant trip and one of the best I have been on, I cannot recommend this enough, don't overthink just book, you'll have an amazing time!

the tour took us on little Suzukis around the island of Gozo and we got to see the main sites of interest. my driver and guide, Cil, was fantastic.

Excellent option for a day at Blue Lagoon. Helpful crew, nice boat with lockers and food, the right amount of time spent.
