An excellent tour, providing the opportunity to see a lot of Malta in a short time (we were on a cruise ship only in port for the day). Booking the tour and communicating with the guide beforehand was a breeze. Nadine was incredible, extremely knowledgeable not only about the history and geography of Malta but prepared to discuss and answer questions about present-day Malta and its place in the European Union. I highly recommend her.
