Great way to see the island without having to pay for private transportation to different destinations. We did the blue/North route which took about 180 min, but make sure to ask for a map and a timetable when you check-in at the stand because the times and stops are slightly different than on the ad. Also I suggest doing some research in advance about which stops you would like to do, because time only permits approx. 1-2 stops in a day. But overall great flexibility on where you want to stop, interesting commentary about each stop, and a relaxing ride that gives you an overview of the island.

The activity is very good, especially if you have little time to see Malta, and you need to take advantage of the time. Both things are worth it, especially the cruise, because you can see the island from another perspective. The heat was horrible, we caught a day with a lot of temperature and humidity, and it is necessary to wear a cap or a hat, otherwise it is impossible. On the bus they sell cold water, and it is appreciated. It would be nice if the bus would run more often, we missed the bus for a matter of minutes and had to wait an hour for the next one.

Sitting up high, wind on our faces, Beautifully lit spaces was a wonderful thing!!!! However, we were the last pick up and had to sit inside bottom for the first half of the trip… so ask about pickup locations! Might want to eCab to a closer starting point????

Great time spent! We chose the southern (historical) route and learned so much about the island and its history. The landscapes are magnificent ! The very friendly team

Very enjoyable day out. All buses were punctual. Commentary was clear and informative.
