Vince D was a great tour guide. He has fanatastic local knowledge of Malta, created an itinerary based on our interests, and was very conversational. I would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Richard. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful family. Maybe us guides should start rating the people who join us on tour ... you will get 5+ stars for the interest you took in my country!

Vince possesses a wealth of knowledge that comes in measures as requested by his group. Never overpowering in presentation of history, he allows the pace to be directed by his group. A pleasure to share his company.

Vince was very prompt in email communications. Excellent tour. Especially enjoyed the St. John's Co-Cathedral and the Battery cannon demonstration.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I enjoyed your myriad questions. Love it when someone takes an interest in my little country ... very best wishes
Vince is a very competent and friendly guide with good humor who took us on a very interesting journey through Valletta
Julie ArnoldUnited Kingdom
Vince was easy to communicate with, his humour showing through more than 12 months before we met. We can highly recommend his services. We had a lovely walking tour of Valetta and hope to return to this beautiful island again soon. Thank you Julie, Dave, Shirley, Jim, Libby, Chris, Barbara, Alan, Pauline and Martin :-)

Vince was a lovely guide. Very knowledgeable and flexible to the needs of the group. We loved every minute of the tour and we loved Malta. Will definitely come back.

Tourguide was too serious Tour was expensive for what we covered.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You for taking the time to give your opinion. I am very concerned about my behaviour with guests, of course and I always make sure that it is always correct. That precludes me from getting over-friendly... and I have been so my entire career. Regards Value for Money, I assure you that you may find cheaper alternatives as is the case in food or accomodation etc. Regretfully there are individuals ready to pretend they are guides without doing the necessary courses and studies.

Our guide seemed unwilling to share his hometown willingly? He was more like "what do you want to know?" The visit on Sunday had some limitations that were beyond our control. Valletta, Malta was a walking tour but must have a backup itinerary for a Sunday visit. The visit to the city walls was interesting. We missed the timing of the cannons. Next time, I'll just work with a taxi and plan my own visit to include history and local food.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for analysing the tour. As you said, the tour you chose of Valletta is a walking tour and I and other TbL guides offer tours with transport to outlying towns which enable one to see a different environment. These are not backup tours but cater for a different clientele. The only sites in Valletta closed on Sundays are churches but that applies to the entire island (see Tour Description). As Malta's History of 8,000 years cannot be covered in 4 hours, I ALWAYS ask what guests are interested in.
Vincent was excellent and very engaging. Our tour was more of a stroll, with commentary as we walked along. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Bill. I'm glad we clicked and had a relaxed look at Valletta..

Vince did a great job taking us on a short tour of the old part of Valletta. We had to cut our time short due to a miscommunication with our cruise ship, but Vince gave us an informative and amusing tour that we thoroughly enjoyed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks David. All the more reason to come back for a few days.

Vince was extremely knowledgeable. He relied on us a bit too much for guidance on what to see. As we had very little background on Malta, we hoped he would have provided us with a bit more structure. If I had more experience, I would use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Monte, Hope your trip is proceeding well. Thanks for the time to give me your feedback. And now that you know what to expect, I'll give you much more next time. You are coming back aren't you ?! Malta or even Valletta is difficult to do well in a few hours, which is why I constantly adjust the tours to the individual visitor. Should you wish, I can help with the planning of your next Malta trip - but do make it a week at least.
Knowledgeable,agreeable and amenable. A pleasing and informative morning
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks James. It was a pleasant walk. Valletta is really captivating. I hope I made you wish to return and explore the rest
