As you go, hear little-known stories about what it was like to be a patient at the Holy Infirmatory or a galley slave on the ships of the Order, and whether all knights behaved in accordance to their vows. After three hours, you'll have a deeper perspective of Valletta.

This private walking tour is the best way to experience Valletta in our opinion. With Matthew as our guide, we learned the history of Valletta and Malta as we walked by buildings, statues, churches, streets, gardens, plazas, steps and walls. Matthew has a wealth of information to share all along the way, and in very clear English. We highly recommend this tour and hopefully, you will have Matthew as your guide. Karen and Fred, USA

Excellent tour with a very knowledgable, informative and articulate guide, Herbert. Even though it rained about half the time, it did not diminish the value of the tour. Highlight was St John's Co-Cathedral! Don't miss it. Ask for Herbert.

Guide Jennifer was very bright and very informative ... and iconoclastic, which added spice and interest. For prominent example, we learned about the Knights of St. John's oath of poverty, chastity, and obedience, and their assiduous and successful efforts to fail utterly to adhere to at least the first two parts. We learned a bit about the defense of Malta during WWII ... and the blast-wave displacement of Victoria's statue, both of which led us later to the Lascaris War Rooms and the fascinating story of bravery, adaptability, tenacity, and brilliance that led to success. The three-hour tour covered Valletta, and her skillful time-management made sure that, even with answering our many questions, we kept to schedule.

The guide was great and we saw a lot more than you would have been able to fit in with a bigger group.
