The starting point was a bit far from our initial arrival point in Valetta (by ferry from Sliema), but this was a very interesting was of visiting the city. This was the first time I went on a self guided tour with riddles and puzzles along the way and I’ll try to do it this way again in other cities I’ll visit. I recommend it if you want an interesting way to explore.

It's the first time we've explored a city in this way and it won't be the only time :-) Very entertaining, although not particularly difficult to solve. Tip: Shortly before 12 it is worth being at the Saluting Battery!

A really fun way to tour the sights. The riddles were not too difficult and even the teenager liked them.

We recommend! In this way we were able to discover the beautiful city in a wonderful and playful way.

An original way to discover the city as a family. The kids loved it
