What people are saying about Valletta

We started off in Sliema where the boat departed from, made our way to Bugibba, passing by the east coast of Malta, with the staff giving some interesting facts about certain buildings we saw. From Bugibba we then made our way to Gozo where Majority of people got off to do a 3 hours tour, while a small group of us, made our way to Comino, specifically Blue Lagoon, the height of the day. Throughout the whole day the staff was friendly, helpful and informative.

This was a really nice tour and extremely good value. Lovely views of Valletta and the 3 Cities at night and all illuminated. Well worth doing.
