What a lovely experience! Highly recommend doing a food tour this was my first one and it exceeded expectations. The host was brilliant and super knowledgeable about the history and culture of Valletta but also the food and cuisine we enjoyed was a healthy portion! They didn’t scrimp and save on any of the food. I would highly revisit this tour again and it’s also prompted me to book other food tours in other countries too so thank you!
