Malta and Gozo SightSeeing Hop On, Hop Off - Malta
All tours are great and frankly we cannot think of a better way to get around Malta or Gozo. You sightsee from the open top and you can get on/off at practically all the main attractions around the Maltese islands. Being an open top bus, make sure to take some good sunscreen with you in summer.

Directions to Malta and Gozo SightSeeing Hop On, Hop Off
The hop on, hop off tour concept has been a mainstay in many European cities for quite a while and MaltaSightSeeing were the first to introduce it in Malta and Gozo. While Malta's size should make it a relatively easy place to explore, public transport does not offer a practical way to visit Malta's main tourist attractions. The Malta and Gozo SightSeeing hop on, hop off service addresses this issue and offers a practical tour service linking all the popular places of interest on the Maltese islands. The buses are a mix of modern and retro double deckers with an open top... a feature that can be used for the 300 days of sunshine Malta gets every year.
