The tour begins with a pick-up from your hotel by an air-conditioned luxury coach. A multi-lingual guide (English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Russian, Swedish and Norwegian) will accompany you and give you more insights about the tour. Walk the streets of this medieval town today known as the "silent city" whilst your guide unravels its rich history. Be shown its secretive narrow winding streets to discover its dwarfed doorways, till you reach the city's bastions from where a stunning panoramic view of the island can be seen. The tour continues with a visit to The Catacombs of St Catald, quintessential to many Southern European cities - the stop will bring an eerie flavor to the afternoon. The tour continues with a visit to the Dingli cliffs, known as the highest cliffs on the island. From here you can look out to the island of Filfla. After a lunch break, our final stop will be to the botanic gardens of San Anton, originally the gardens of a palace which once served as a leisure residence for the Grand Master. The tour will conclude with you being dropped off at your Malta hotel or at Malta's port (tours departing from Gozo) for your ferry back to Gozo, at the other end you will be met by either a taxi/ minibus to be dropped back at your Gozo accommodation.
