Anne Marie was great; knowledgeable and friendly. My tour was tailored specifically for my personal interest in Malta's prehistoric monuments, but Anne Marie filled the day with very interesting stops along the way. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lovely meeting you John and Carla! It's great to meet someone so interested in the temples. I hope that you will both find time to nip down to Gozo one day!

She is a warm, charming, funny, and a great individual and guide. I cannot recommend her high enough. Thanks, Anne!
Dabie T.United States
Anne Marie has a great grasp of the Maltese history, and her commentaries showed her genuine interest of the history and culture of Malta. I was able to see so many things in Malta and Gozo in a short period of time as Anne Marie had arranged the necessary transportations smoothly at each stop.
Dabie T.United States
I used Anne Marie as my private guide for Malta and Gozo over 3 days. She was absolutely wonderful, knowledgeable and a lovely person. She was solicitous, and went above and beyond to accommodate my interests, including waiting in line beforehand to obtain a very hard to get ticket for a special session to the Hypogeum (which admits only 80 people a day and you had to get these tickets in person).
Ann GiambussoUnited States
Anna was absolutely wonderful!! Informative and personable. We had a remarkable day And all in our group highly recommend her
Jamie JeffryesUnited States
Great guide with much patience for older slower members of group!
Tom SwafferUnited States
You will have the most knowledgeable and wonderful guide with Anne. Her tour was absolutely amazing. We absolutely loved our day in Malta, even the rain could not mar our visit. We ended up having dry skies for our tours of the incredible archaeological sites. Anne's incredible knowledge was apparent throughout the day. She took us to a wonderful spot to experience local cuisine and delicious food. You will truly expereince the best of Malta with a tour by Anne.
David PollickUnited States
Anne was friendly, informative, very flexible and a wiz at finding out of the way sights (including a fabulous local restaurant).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure meeting you both and I hope you come back for a long stay with the 'war followers. :)
Richard SchmittMcLean, VA, United States
Anne exceeded our expectations. She is not only an excellent tour guide but a wonderful ambassador for Malta. In the five hours we were with her on a walking tour of Valletta, we learned so much about the history of Malta and its importance in WWII but also she made sure we understood everyday life in this beautiful port city. We were on our own for two more days but not without plenty of suggestions from Anne Marie about what to do and where to eat. Anne is the best guide we have hired.
Anne Marie was fantastic. She was very pleasant and courteous, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. No criticisms whatsoever!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was lovely meeting the family. Hopefully we meet up in Toronto one day :)
Anne Marie was the best from time we met till delivered to ship. 110% tour ,she is a wealth of history of Malta , got more than we expected. Military Tour was excellent and additional overview of Malta and its history was exceptional . Visited a cafe she new well for a taste of the local speciality. Vehicle was excellent and Driver very safe.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely comments.Take good care of yourselves and I hope we meet again x
John DickinsonUnited States
A true insider, she showed as not just the cathedral and touristy parts of Valletta, but also the "locals" Valletta! We were especially interested in the co-cathedral, and she taught us and showed us SO MUCH that we could never have discovered on our own. She's a real gem!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely words! Come back when it is cooler so I can show you much more !
Terence MartinUnited States
Little did we know that Anne Marie is the current President of the Tour Guides in Malta when we booked her. But her broad knowledge, articulate and fluent English along with her love of her country made our party of 4 so very glad that we had her to guide us. She is exactly the sort of guide I hope for She was very adaptable to our needs, getting a small van to take us around at the last minute and considerate of the restrictions on mobility due to an injury of one in our group. Highest recommendation
Paul DarmaninUnited States
My wife and I took the Valletta walking tour today with Anne. It was a wonderful experience. We found her to be very professional and knowledgable about Valletta, as she described in great detail everything that she showed us. We also found her to be very warm and personable. We were very happy with Anne and would highly recommend her services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a lovely review! It was so lucky to meet such a charming couple.
Stephen W.United States
We had a terrific walking tour today of Valetta. We organized this tour separately from excursions offered by our cruise ship because we wanted a private tour with a guide whose profile we were able to read in advance. And we have had excellent experience with Tours by Locals guides. Anne Marie is an engaging, highly experienced and knowledgeable guide. She brought to life the wonderful architecture and history of Valetta and the Republic of Malta. And she is fun! I recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a lovely review <3 Hopefully you will come back again to enjoy our islands for a little longer. Wish you a wonderful cruise and it was a pleasure meeting you.
Anne Marie was an excellent guide - very accommodating to all our requests, knowledgeable and pleasant. She guided us through narrow streets of Valletta and at the end of the tour we not only saw a lot of interesting places but also had a grasp of very interesting history of Valletta and Malta
Chad EverhartUnited States
I have been many places, but this was my first time EVER utilizing a local tour guide. What a great way to see Malta! I was a little unsure at first about spending so much on an unknown service, but am so glad I did. Specifically, Anne Marie turned out to be a great choice. She was born and raised here and it shows in her knowledge, experience, and passion for her city/country and in sharing it with others. She is also very flexible with her tour, letting you decide what you'd like to see. Do it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was lovely meeting you and it was an enjoyable afternoon explaining our big history on our little rock! Looking forward to meeting the rest of the family!
Gayvin PowersUnited States
Ana is absolutely an amazing tour guide! She was able to easily adjust and captivate a small or large tour group. My son and I loved her! She was able to adjust the tour due to our needs and innately knew when it was time to rest or get a delicious treat. I would happily take another tour with Ana and am so grateful that she was the tour guide. Ana is simply amazing, professional, and knowledgable. You'll be happy with her as your guide.
James ScarolaUnited States
Anne Marie was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and quickly assessed our interest to make the most of our tour day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lovely meeting you! Don't forget to email me!
Karen BrubakerUnited States
I would highly recommend Anne Marie. She was very informative and showed us many sites that tourists normally don't see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and I hope you will visit the Maltese Islands again
Javier Alvarez CampilloSpain
This was the second day of a two day tour. I reviewed it on the first. As I said Anne Marie was very helpful and informative. She adapted the tour exacttly to our wishes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was lovely meeting you and Matilde
Javier Alvarez CampilloSpain
Anne Marie customized a two day tour for us in Spanish, the first day to see La Valletta in depth from the narrow streets to the ramparts and from Saint John's Cathedral to the Grandmaster's Palace. The second day we visited several small villages and churches, the blue grotto, the megalithic temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra and the city of Medina. Anne Marie got to cram all this in just two days and at the same time make it easy for my mother that has same limitations. Thanks Anne Marie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure! Hasta la prixima y muchas gracias por los fotos.
Sidney FrankUnited States
Her description of her abilities falls short of her skill. She is an excellent guide with wide knowledge combine with wit
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed the humour! Keep intouch and have a wonderful cruise :)
Mark DavidsonUnited States
Anne Marie's tours of Gozo and Malta were outstanding in every way. She took the time to determine what our interests and background are, and designed a tour for us. She clearly loves her subject. Her English language is unaccented and very fluent. I give her our highest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! That's one amazing compliment! Thank you! I hope you will get to visit us again.
Robert MudanoUnited States
One of the best tours and guides I have ever had the pleasure of spending a day with. My wife and I were on our honeymoon, and Anne Marie made everything perfect. She is so knowledgable in so many areas of interest, from local agriculture to art history and especially about the Knights of Malta. Truly a wonderful travel experience and we recommend her with the highest possible regards.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Wishing you a life time of magical moments
Our guide Anne Marie was fantastic. She and the driver picked us up on time, all the sites, museums, craft market, tunnels and war room were explained to the fullest. Very happy customers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and lovely meeting you. Enjoy the rest of your cruise and come back for longer.
Anne Marie was fabulous. We left the tour in her hands and she took the reins and showed us the amazing attractions in Malta. Our only request was to eat at an authentic Maltese restaurant and she definitely delivered by taking us to a wonderful lunch that we would not have found on our own. We would use Anne Marie again in a heart beat and we will be giving her high recommendations to any friends that plan a trip to Malta. Brad and Kim Nick Vancouver, B.C. Canada
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a real pleasure showing you our rock despite the most tiring heatwave! Hope to see you again, maybe in Vancouver with the Maltese Falcon ;) enjoy the rest of your trip .
David JohnUnited Kingdom
This was an excellent tour. Anne Marie was very good, very knowledgeable and personable. We would defiantly recommend this tour to anybody with an interest in history of Malta
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was lovely meeting you. Hope you come to visit us again. Anne marie
Robert QuistSalt Lake City, UTAH, United States
Anne Marie is a gem, she took the time to learn about us and then delivered a exceptional experience. This was our second visit to Malta and I was concerned that there would be little new to see. The answer, there was a lot, and it was even better than our first visit. That evening, after our tour, as we were talking with our friends, it became obvious that we had seen much more with Anne Marie than they had with a competing tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I am so happy that you enjoyed your day with me and look forward to your next visit to our islands! Best wishes for 2017
Amy HejtmancikUnited States
Anne Marie had a great itinerary - taking the two of us to great hill side vistas and to many historical and architectural gems in the city, while providing professional narrative. She and the driver were very accommodating in providing transportation close to sites in a comfortable air-conditioned sedan. Thanks to cell phones they also picked us up.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Amy for your lovely review. It was lovely meeting you both and may our paths cross again.
Bryan Steven TindallAustin, TEXAS, United States
I loved loved loved this tour. Anna knows Malta like no other. She pointed out several pictures of her grandfather in the Casa Rocca Piccola, the 16th century house of The Marquis. (It's great to tour) I really got a great feel for Valletta. I'd been there before so we avoided a couple of the sights I already know about. She knew all sorts of people as we went around. Couldn't have been better. 100%
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh Thank you for such a lovely review! I really enjoyed that morning and your great sense of humour. I am sure we shall meet again on the rock amongst one of your travels.
Alice SteinerUnited States
Anna coordinated everything for our day on Gozo, picking us up at our hotel in a comfortable car with driver, managing the ferry crossing, and then giving us choices of things to see and do on Gozo. We chose the neolithic temple, Calypso's Cave, and some scenic touring. We ate at a lovely Italian restaurant and got back to Valletta by 6. It was a marvelous day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you enjoyed the day. Hope to meet once again in the future .
Alice SteinerUnited States
Anna has a vast knowledge of the history of Malta and is a friendly and enthusiastic guide. We very much enjoyed our tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a pleasure meeting you.
We really like the visit. Our guide, Anne Marie we give her a 10. A lot of explications and information. Malta is worth to visit again with more time. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Nice to be lucky to find such a beautiful famiglia! Until next meeting in our islands :) Gracias! Encantada de tener la suerte de encontrar una famiglia tan Hermosa! Hasta LA proxima encuentro en nuestras islas :)
