What can I say, Clive was simply the best tour guide I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His knowledge, professionalism and enormous humour was evident from start to finish. He was flexible and took 40 of us from all over the world on one of the best tours of Malta. Every single person on the tour has raved about him since. Absolutely the best. Thank you Clive.

Following our tour of Valletta the day before and despite a windy day, we visited the Blue Lagoon, Dingly Cliffs and the Temple - Hagar Qim. Outstanding and made so interesting by Clive by not only describing the methods of creating the temple but its place in an early society culture. We postponed the visit to the lower temples but Clive happily rearranged our tour to visit other places of interest. A wonderful day due to Clive's passion and knowledge about his country and his gentle humour.

Despite the intermittent rain, Clive took us on a tour of Valletta and with his wealth of knowledge about not only Malta but globally as well, brought the city alive with his descriptions of its history and culture. We valued his comments and gentle humour together with his attentive concern for our welfare.

Clive was a delight. He took us to all the major sites on Gozo, cheerfully answered all of our questions, and suggested great places to eat. We highly recommend him. It was especially nice to have him as a guide and to have a separate driver as well so that we didn't need to worry about parking. Clive is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor as well Lots of fun!

Clive did a great job showing us so much of his country. He was very informative and seemed to know everyone we encountered along the way as he was true local. He knew all of the best stops for pictures. He filled every request and gave us a truly memorable day. We also stopped for a wonderful lunch in a very quaint location. Clive also has a great sense of humor making it a fun day. Thanks so much!

Clive was wonderful (and kudos to our driver, also). The tour was set at a pace that was easy; we spent more time at places we enjoyed and just enough to get the gist of a place where that was all that was needed. Between places, he gave us all sorts of interesting facts and tidbits about Malta. When it came time for lunch, he had several suggestions for restaurants and locations. He gave us enough information to make an informed choice, and we were very happy with the little bay side cafe.

Clive was an excellent guide on our walking tour of Valletta. He promptly met us outside our ship's security gate and had obviously planned things for us to visit which were of specific interest to us. He had an excellent grasp of historical facts which were most important to us and very good English. We were fortunate to be outside the local government building when the Malta head of state was exiting their car. Overall high rating for Clive! Thanks for the wonderful memories and photos!

Clive provided an excellent tour of Malta showing us all the highlights giving us a great overview of the area. I altered the tour as the tour began and he just went with it and never missed a beat. He was interested not only in providing an excellent tour but making sure our entire stay was what we had hoped. Clive went out of his way so my husband could see a historical sight that we didn't expect to see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hi katie I'm glad that we succeeded to get tickets for the hypogeum on the same day, i hope that you've enjoyed the visit. It was really nice touring the island with you both and hope to meet up again!! Sahha!!!!!:)

Clive was an exceptional guide with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of Malta. During his conversations, it was easy to see that he truly loved his country and was very proud of it. His ability to 'read' us allowed him to really customize the tour and show us items that we did not even think to ask about. His degree of professionalism was of the highest order and it was a pleasure to accompany him during the time we saw his island. We would certainly use Clive again and are already planning to return.

Clive really made our trip to Malta special. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the islands and was eager to share. We visited Malta via cruise ship and only had limited time to see as much as possible. He made sure we saw the sites that we wanted and made sure we had a good time. He has a great sense of humor and was truly a joy to spend time with. We would DEFINTELY recommend Clive if you are looking for a guide who is funny, friendly and knowledgeable!

He was very interesting and personable. We saw a lot of the island and he was very flexible with what we wanted to do and see. We covered a lot of territory - seeing Valleta, Mdina, Marsaxlokk, Blue Grotto and ancient temples. We highly recommend Clive.

Clive was the best, he truly loves his country and it shows. He made the history of Malta come alive with his vivid descriptions. He was very flexible with our requests, taking us to a variety of places. Because of him (and George in Slovenia), we will seek out "Tours by Locals" for all our tours in the future.

Clive is really a nice guy, who tells an excellent story, very comprehensive and with dry humour, he's flexible and full of good advise. The best evaluation about a guide is without a doubt: when back in this country, would you try and arrange for this guide again? Our answer would definitely be: yes !

We were looking for a tour that would give us an introduction to Malta (we only had half a day)and show us the countryside. Clive provided all we could have wished for and more, he was a fount of knowledge and catered the tour to suit our tastes perfectly. We will definitely be returning to Malta for a longer stay and we will have no hesitation in asking Clive to show us around at a more leisurely pace. Clive you are the best.

This man is fully informed on the prehistoric megalithic temples for which Malta is known as well as this totally unique town of Medina. A " must return" to Malta is a priority for us. As my husband is a professor and a history buff, the fact that Clive could teach him so much is what is outstanding. Clive also is very attentive to what matters for the client to see and planned our day accordingly. He is also lots of fun to be with! Clive is one of the top guides I have ever had - Judy B.
