i've been to Valletta before, but honestly I never expected learning so much from this experience and having so much fun!! my partner and I got really competitive and we actually tried 'racing' to see who finishes the game faster and who gets the highest score (I won haha) and the story was so grabbing, it was really spooky at times. such an immersive experience, and we're already planning on playing 2 more games on our next trip in august on their app they have this gem thing going on where you buy gem packages and then use them to unlock the games, we had no idea about this system set in place, we discovered it when we unlocked ours all in all, pleasantly surprised and well done, we'll be coming for more!!

Mi sono trovata molto bene e ho ricevuto un ottima assistenza, avendo peraltro avuto un imprevisto: il giorno del tour ero in grave ritardo per colpa del taxi, fortunatamente la gentile Mariella mi ha contattatto il giorno dopo per accordare un altro walking tour della Valletta e tutto alla fine ha quadrato perfettamente con gli altri tour che avevo già prenotato nel corso della giornata. La guida, un signore originario di Malta, era molto preparato, parlava sia italiano che inglese, ma gli ho chiesto di farla in inglese, ma avuto molta accortezza di parlare limpidamente e con ritmo adeguato tale che si potesse comprendere ampiamente, siccome non sono madre lingua.

Mr. NEVILLE accompanied us, in addition to telling us the history and the beauties that we encountered from time to time, with completeness of information and anecdotes on the situations that occurred, he also described the Malta of now. He was extremely kind because being us Italians, instead of letting us use the earphones, not being a very large group, he translated us into our language in a more than understandable way, thanks for your availability

Excellent service and quality, Neville (our local guide) pleasant and knowledgeable of the island. If we return, we will definitely rely on them for further excursions. Definitely recommended!

The tour guide Irena was knowledgeable and professional. I enjoyed myself and would highly recommend.
