I am a licensed, professional tour guide since 2005. For several years I have been informing and entertaining visitors from across the country and around the world about the sights and history of our beautiful country.
Tour guiding was always my dream. At school, history was always my favourite subject and visiting places of interest was my biggest pleasure.
I fulfilled my dream when I was 17 years. I was accepted by the Malta Tourism Institute to participate in the Tour Guiding Course. After 2 years of an intensive full time course, the Malta Tourism Authority had recognized me as one of its qualified guides.
Being a tour guide is an exciting job that introduces you to people and places average travelers and tourists never experience, but it also requires solid skills and knowledge. To ensure this, I participate in various seminars and events in my field. Recently, I participated in a tourism-related EU funded project, consisting of an intensive course equivalent to the level of a Diploma in Tourism Management.
I will be more than happy to help you plan your holiday or show you the most interesting places in the Maltese Islands, either by visiting the oldest free-standing temples in the world, the UNESCO World Heritage city of Valletta, the medieval town of Mdina, the island of Gozo steeped in tradition, or by following one of the many nature trails. Besides the popular traditional tours I also offer a number of excellent themed itineraries for all the different types of groups and ages and have been recommended by many including National Geographic.
Together we can design a programme which suits your interests best.
I have a passion for where I live and I have many ideas for exciting trips that I could take you on.
I look forward to meeting you!
A Recent Review of this guide
A highlight of our trip to Malta was the half day tour we took through ToursbyLocals. Our Guide Victoria and driver Frederick couldn't have been better. They made the most of our time and paid close attention to the interests of our group of four. We saw the Blue Grotto, Marsaxlokk and Hagar Qim Temples. The commentary en route was informative and Victoria's style is engaging , entertaining and passionate. We really appreciated her and Frederick's advise for things to see and do. I recommend Victoria!
