Our guide was Vincent and I can strongly recommend him to your organisation. He was very knowledgeable and pitched his presentations at just the right level for us. He likewise picked up on the ambience of the group and he joined in the banter and fun on the tour. We and he enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend him and your organisation for future tours. Regards, Michael O'Riordan

Vince was here ahead of time, and patiently waited for and tolerated our group of 4, because one is handicapped and was less able to walk than he had quite understood (or I had made clear) when I made the reservation. He tooks everywhere on the island possible. Accommodated our friend who also was feeling bilious. Got us in the places we might not have seen with everyone. He answered every question knowledgeably, accurately, and objectively. His English is excellent. Thank you.

Vincent was excellent and very engaging. Our tour was more of a stroll, with commentary as we walked along. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

We loved this tour. Vince knew exactly where to take us and showed us some really interesting aspects to Malta. Malta is beautiful! Vince took us to a fabulous coffee shop with an extraordinary view. It was very special. After several hours it was time for us to move on. Vince recommended a fabulous restaurant for dinner where we enjoyed local produce and we did. Vince, you were a pleasure to spend the day with, thank you for the special memories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Melisa.. I am glad you have pleasant memories of little Malta. Thank you especially for your company.

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.

It was a good day seeing all of Malta. I did not wish to walk around that much, and so did not. I did feel that even though I had made this clear initially, I was expected to do more than I did. I believe it is "my tour" and can set my own pace. Vince was not always the easiest person to understand (English) for me. We were picked up in a timely manner.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: "Dear Karen, Thank you for your rating and I am glad you had a good day seeing Malta. Just like you mention, it’s your tour and that is why I offer options to my customers and let them decide. As for my English, I am sorry you struggled to understand me. We all have accents and had you mentioned that you were having trouble understanding me, I would have spoken a little bit slower and chosen simpler terminology. Thank you"

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.

Date: Jun 9/16

We had no idea what to expect from Malta -- and did not know it's amazing wartime history. The war museum and the war rooms helped us understand the importance of Malta as a strategic location. Vince instructed us on a lot of this (he is extremely well-versed in history), but also showed us the sights of Mdina and Valetta. We also got to eat Maltese traditional food!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Like you said Kathleen, Malta has an amazing (wartime) history and I sincerely hope this has whetted your appetite for another visit. Arrivederci

Vince was great to work with and exceeded our expectations. He was very knowledgeable and was very attentive to our needs. There were 4 in our travel party and he made sure each of us was having an enjoyable tour. When he spoke he called us by our names, very impressive. At our request to eat local cuisine, he provided the perfect location. Great food. Vince showed all of the highlights of Malta. Would highly recommend this tour and would use him again in the future

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words. And if you ever drop by, let's meet up and share some more stories...

Date: Jul 13/15

Vince was an incredible guide, showing us exactly what we wanted to see within our interests. He was knowledgeable about history, archaeology, church history, beautiful sites. We were thrilled with Valetta, Mdina, the coast and stories of the culture. We are anxious to return and would recommend Vince to anyone. Since we are older, he respected our limitations, but I'm sure could be an excellent guide to any age person. Particularly outstanding is the Church of St. John. Kudos to Vince.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words. Best of all I liked the part where you said you are anxious to return. I'm looking forward to meet up again (off duty !) as you were such good company.

Our tour of Malta was all we could have hoped for. Vince was most accommodating in taking us on a tour virtually right around the island and showing us all the things we particularly wanted to see. Unfortunately our time ashore did not permit an in-depth investigation of everything, but we did manage to see, among other things, the only painting Caravaggio ever signed, which hangs in the museum of St John Co-Cathedral, plus a heap more. Thank you Vince for a great day.

Took the tour with Vince as a shore excursion. Much better value than sharing a bus with 20 -30 others as so much more was seen in better comfort. Just myself and my wife and a great time was had.

We had a wonderful day with Vince! We now have an appreciation of both the fascinating history and beauty of Malta. We can't believe how much we were able to see in such a short time without feeling rushed. Vince was kind and patient with my 10 year old granddaughter. I highly recommend this this tour. Thank you for the great memories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment. I assure you I was happy to share the day with you.
