Amazing accommodating adventure!
, May 2022
This tour was an epic experience and fun filled day! Christopher chauffeured us around like celebrities and was truly helpful and informative. We visited these amazing temple ruins that predate history itself. We also visited the beautiful fishing town of Marsaxlokk and the stunning cliffs at Blue Grotto. We highly recommend adding the Blue Grotto boat ride to your trip for only a few more Euros. Christopher went above and beyond explaining Maltese history and archeology. He was extremely flexible with us and allowed us to pick our own restaurant for lunch, Haber 16, which was also on our bucket list. This tour was great and we were able to knock out so many sight seeing adventures in one day!
Fantastic day exploring ancient Malta!
, May 2022
We had a great day out with Christopher, our driver/guide. He was very engaging and full of interesting information about the tour, but also about life in Malta more generally. At each site, he set things up for us (including providing audio guides) and then let us experience the sites on our own, at our own pace, which was perfect. The temples are amazing to see and the fishing villages very picturesque. Highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful private guide!

Christopher was giving a wealth of knowledge. Also very accomodating to help us get last minute Hypogeum tickets. Very punctual at every pick up points. Highly recommend his service.

Christopher was extremely personable and knowledgeable. He was so professional, clearly demonstrating a deep knowledge of the archeological sites. He also gave us great insight into the cultural roots of the Maltese people. Christopher is a treasure and Viator is lucky to have him. If possible, clients wanting this tour should ask for him. It was a fantastic experience.
Exploring the Ancients of Malta

The tour was outstanding. The driver and his trainee were very well informed, friendly, and helpful. They were able to adjust/add to my tour a location I wanted to visit without any problems. They are quite professional and the sights included in the tour were breath taking.
An excellent and informative guide, knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Wonderful neolithic and stone age sites well described by a very good guide. Well worth it and a great experience,
Really interesting and worthwhile tour lead by a great tour guide!
, Mar 2022
Excellent tour by Christopher of some of the Neolithic sites which are really worth visiting and very well presented by Malta Heritage. Also nice to visit two of the lovely fishing villages, including one where we had a fine fish lunch. Christopher was a first class host and tour guide. He was a mine of information on the history of the island and any aspects of Malta. Highly recommended!
Personalized tour of Malta by a local
, Jan 2022
Chris was incredibly friendly and welcoming to us on our last full day in Malta. Because we traveled in the December off season, it basically was a private tour for the day to see the historical megalithic sites and viewpoints. Definitely take the opportunity to visit the Blue Grotto by boat if the weather allows. The color of the water is surreal and stunning. Chris was patient and allowed us to take our time at each location, provided a local's perspective, and shared some Maltese phrases for us to practice. Grazzi!
Best day tour in recent memory

My mom and I had a great day tour with Christopher to see Neolithic temples and quaint fishing villages. Christopher was extremely organized, friendly and so knowledgeable! We highly recommend this tour.

Great Private Tour
, Nov 2021
We would definitely recommend this tour and already have to others. With its Hotel pickup and drop off it is a breeze. Christopher was an awesome host and so full of knowledge. We can only hope he is who takes you around to the sights. For us it was perfectly timed even though it was at your own pace. Vehicle was clean and extremely comfortable. The only thing that may have made it better is if the guide actually took you through the sites (COVID-SMH), but the audio version was acceptable. Again we would highly recommend and want to thank Christopher again for the great day. Tony and Jennifer
