Angela was an amazing tour guide! She has great knowledge about Valetta and Malta and the tour was fantastic! It was great for someone who has never been to Malta to gain such in depth knowledge. Angela paces the tour very well and was happy to answer questions. Could not recommend enough- don’t hesitate to book!

Our host Angela, is a great guide. Took us on exceptional tour of the main sights of Valletta. She had plenty of stories and she started with a detailed explanation of the history of Valletta and the Knights of St John. We were given time for a quick stop at the midpoint of the tour, using the loos of an art gallery. We finished in the breathtaking Co-Cathedral of St John, skipped the line to get in and were given a detailed tour of this very impressive cathedral. She answered all our questions and advised us on where to eat and shop, a real insiders guide.

Angela was a well informed and lovely guide. She was able to show us interesting sides to Valletta as well as the famous points of interest. The pace was easy and not difficult. We enjoyed her input for St John’s Co Cathedral and it was well worth this part as we completely skipped the huge queue for entry.
