Blue Grotto Tours and Activities

star-4.5
656 Reviews

The most famous of Malta’s cave complexes, the Blue Grotto is a series of nine caves whose rocky sides glow green, purple, and orange according to their mineral content. Surrounding the caves are some of the clearest, brightest cobalt-blue waters imaginable. The natural wonder got its name from British soldiers stationed in Malta in the 1950s who thought the caves were reminiscent of the Blue Grotto off the Italian island of Capri.

Archaeological Sites & Fishing Villages

Walk through time (3500BC) when visiting these ancient prehistoric temples. Many people know about the Pyramids and Stonehenge but little do they know when it comes to these Maltese temples outdating them both. We have around twenty three megalithic sites scattered all over the islands of Malta & Gozo. In this private tour we will be visiting two fishing villages, Tarxien, Hagar Qim & Mnajdra temples. Two of these temples spread apart by a few meters very close to our cliffside, on the first day of each season the sun rises in a particular alignment with these prehistoric buildings marking the grow or harvest periods. We do not call this a guided tour but there is no need for one to be since on every site there will be its own guidance and audio visuals. All entry fees are included in price with free flowing cold water. Only the boat ride is optional and tickets need to be bought upon arriving at the site.

Malta is the pearl of the Mediterranean!!!! But, like all gems, it makes sense to be guided by someone with insider knowledge of what to look for. Our tour is unscripted and your experienced guide will quickly adapt to what interests you most – after all it is your holiday! Group sizes are limited to a maximum of 4 people and generally start after breakfast, with your return time at around 3 pm. We use a luxury air-conditioned SUV for your comfort and safety.We can also pick you up and return to your hotel, so there is nothing for you to arrange for yourselves.The Insider’s tour is not a ‘whistle stop’ coach trip feeding endless data on a well-worn tourist route. You will be able to get to the places buses cannot go and see what other tourists miss. We hope you will gain a unique perspective of all that Malta has to offer as only an Insider can provide. We look forward to welcoming you to the Inside track.
