An unbelievable 3 hour walk around Valetta city, eating waaay too much food. They should warn you not to eat first :) Matthew was a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge of the food and general history was outstanding. We could ask him almost any question and he could answer. Also loved his individual commentary as we were walking. Valetta is a beautiful city to start - our first time here - but being able to couple it with its history and (food) culture made this an essential activity! My wife and I would highly recommend this to any visitor coming to Malta.

Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and well prepared. There were only two of us so he was able to take the time to really explain himself. The pace of our tour was also good, I never felt we were being rushed to get place to place and on to the next tour group. I'm awful with names, I think our guide was Matthew.

Was a really great tour of the city, at the same time all the important scenes and sights were explored, the guide also told very interesting and funny anecdotes. maybe a micro or the same would be helpful for a better understanding. On very hot days, a stop for a drink break in one of the many pubs and bars would also be desirable.
