Good tour with interesting information about Malta (specifically, the Easter traditions there)

Our tour guide picked us up in the bus straight from our hotel. While we rode in the bus around the south-east part of the island, she let us know a lot of interesting things about Malta, including the Easter traditions there, and then brought us back to the hotel. Unfortunately, the procession that we had planned to see was cancelled due to rain. However, we had the opportunity to see the pastor bless children's Easter gifts in Zetjun, and afterwards stick around for the beginning of Mass at 11 o'clock. After that we went to the local Boccia club, where we had a bite to eat and got to try Figolla, a special Easter pastry. We would have like to have seen the procession, so we were a little disappointed that we didn't get the chance. But in the end you can't really do anything about it when it rains, and of course the tour provider couldn't do anything to change the situation. It would just be nice if in the future the tour description mentioned that the procession doesn't take place if

Mario was an excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the area, had a great sense of humor and interacted with everyone. He really enhanced our Easter Procession experience. This is our 2nd activity with Get Your Guide and both have been outstanding. The only thing I'd recommend is let guests know sooner the exact pickup area and time. You won't be disappointed.

Get Your Guide went above and beyond by finding an alternative place for us to attend the Good Friday Procession and we ended up at the ONLY procession on the island! Marita was a great guide and very knowledgeable. Give them a serious look as they have great options!
