What a fun day! We loved visiting the Blue Lagoon most of all. Although this is a short stop you can take a dip in the amazing turquoise water. There are food trucks to purchase drinks and food. A big fruit cup was only 3 euros and so good! When we flew out 2 days later we actually saw the lagoon from the air! The Gozo stop was 2 hours, really not enough time to get to Victoria (the capital) so we just walked up to a beautiful church and ate our picnic lunch. It was relaxing cruising around the islands and enjoying the gorgeous views. Drinks are available for purchase on the boat, not sure of the cost, but prices seemed reasonable everywhere we went. This is a long day of almost 8 hours so bring snacks and sunscreen. We totally recommend this trip, a great day for the price!

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.

Amazing day out!! Having never done a boat tour before this was everything I could have expected and more

Ronald is een super vriendelijke man. Hele eiland rond gecrosst en veel gezien en gehoord. Aanrader!
