Trudy made my Valletta stay so much more rewarding because of her insightful tour. Her enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of Malta's history brought historic sights to life. Trudy also has a wonderful sense of humor, even though we got caught in late afternoon torrential rains. Definitely a 5 star experience.
