The former capital of Malta, this historic hilltop settlement—known as the Silent City—features honey-hued palazzos and centuries-old buildings. The town center, a knot of shady and quiet streets, is shielded from the hubbub and traffic of the outside world by thick walls that date back to between the 16th and 18th centuries.

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.

Drive around the fortifications of Valletta, which are beautifully lit at night, and stop at the Valletta Waterfront in Grand Harbour. Built during the time of Grand Master Pinto, this area comes alive at night, attracting Maltese and tourists alike to its many bars and restaurants. Some free time will be given. Discover Rabat in the centre of the island and walk along its narrow winding streets before reaching Mdina, Malta’s Silent old Capital City – at night a mysterious city which looks so different from what it looks like during the day. A city of palaces and churches, once only inhabited by noblemen, its history goes back to the times of the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Normans, and the Knights of St John. From the ramparts of Mdina you will be able to see practically half the island sparkling in front of you.
