Wonderful tour by Angel giving us an insight into the history of Malta. Headphones and mini receiver meant we could hear clearly and allowed the group to move around and not bunched together. Angel was a thoughtful guide moving us into shade along the way to talk to us and the brief stop for water/ice cream at Upper Barrakka Gardens was very welcome on a hot day. Angel also shared A4 photos to add to what she was telling us and had researched herself more of the back stories of Valletta which were so interesting. Easy location for meeting point outside the New Parliament Building and Angel had umbrella with walking tours on it. Great your to get oriented with Valletta and hear fascinating stories about Malta.

The tour was great and there was some beautiful sights of the two grand Harbors. Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable about the city and recommended several activities that we could do after. Unfortunately, the weather in August is very hot and humid, so plan accordingly and bring plenty of water and sun hats.
