Description

We start our day with a visit to the ancient UNESCO temples of Hagar Qim. Before entering the temples we start at the visitors centre which will help you understand how these magnificent temples were built over 5000 years ago! We then continue with our visit to the actual temple site. This temple has some of the largest and heaviest megaliths out of all the temple sites around the Maltese Islands, some slabs weighing a staggering 20 tons. Our next stop is the beautiful Wied iz-Zurrieq, famous for the magnificent Blue Grotto. This tiny hamlet sits in a valley and has a very picturesque harbour. The grotto and neighbouring system of sea caves are home to brilliant phosphorescent marine life. A 25-minute boat trip (which is optional) explores the incredible beauty of this natural wonder and is a 'must-do'. You will visit many of the caves and can admire the amazing crystal clear azure sea. We then continue to our next stop and have an opportunity to experience some of our local cultures when visiting the pretty traditional and active fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Marsaxlokk is a quaint fishing village and is characterized by low-lying buildings and colourful traditional fishing boats known as the 'luzzu'. A small market lines the seafront, and you will have some free time to wander around, grab a drink and enjoy the ambience of this seaside village. Our final stop is the stunning Cospicua waterfront, here you will board a ferry for a short ferry crossing across the beautiful Grand Harbour. On arrival in Valletta, we take the panoramic elevator to the upper level of the city and back to the tour starting point.
