We toured Mdina with Matthew in a small group of 5 persons. Matthew has a talent for sharing history that makes the buildings and surroundings come to life. He is patient with questions and gives ample time at each stop to enjoy the sight. We liked that he pointed out evidence of the many civilizations in the history of Malta that occupied Mdina. We had a private tour of Valletta on a previous day with Matthew, and the quality of his tours is consistent. We highly recommend this tour and Matthew as your guide.

Our guide was Herbert, who gave us some interesting insights: he has a very lovely way of making history live and relatable.
