Marthese gets a 5 star rating from our foursome for her walking tour of Valetta, Malta. She was extremely knowledgable regarding the lengthy history of Malta, so informative, but never boring. She weaves the history for example the time Caravaggio spent in Malta into an exciting narrative. You will love her!!
