Activity Level :
Going for Mediterranean Cruise and one of the port of calls is Malta? You do not have much time, but you would like to see as much as possible? I can offer to you a specially created private tour for the cruise liner's passengers. During this excursion we will be visiting two capitals of Malta – the medieval city of Mdina and more modern Valletta.
We will start our tour in Mdina, which was the capital of the island from the prehistoric times. Malta was ruled by many - Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spaniards and all of them left their marks in Mdina. Today Mdina is a charming mix of different eras and styles with narrow streets and medieval piazzas, palaces of Maltese nobility and small chapels, bastions and the majestic Cathedral of St.Paul.
Valletta is a completely different experience – everything here is grand and monumental, because the city was laid in 1566 as a show-piece of the power of the Knights of St.John. You will see beautiful palaces and auberges, admire the Grand Harbour view from Upper Barrakka Gardens and visit St.John's Co-Cathedral and Grand Master's Palace (entrance fees are extra).

Hello from Malta!
My name is Alyona and I've been working as a private Licensed Guide in Malta for nearly 20 years.
Showing Malta to my tourists is not just work – I simply love to take people to different places and help them to discover another Malta, which is not shown in many guide books.
The Maltese archipelago is very small and some call Malta a “toy country”, but, believe me, there is so much to see!
The history of these islands goes back to the prehistoric times and we are talking about more than 7000 years of history. And then, of course, there is Valletta – the city built by the Knights of St.John – with beautiful palaces and churches. You prefer medieval times? Then it's the old capital Mdina with it's charming narrow streets and houses of local noblemen. There are a lot of other places to visit, so together we can select the most interesting ones and I will create a unique tour just for you.
You can contact me by e-mail, telephone, Viber, WhatsApp, Telegram or Skype and I will come back to you with suggestions for your private tour of Malta.
I look forward to welcome you to Malta and to show the best of it!
See you in Malta!
