Medieval Highlights - Full day
Today`s excursion takes us to the central part of Malta that is dominated by the ancient citadel of Mdina, once the Island`s capital city and steeped in history. Join us as we navigate through the narrow streets and mysterious alleyways of Mdina, also known as the `silent city`, that lead us to the awe-inspiring bastions from which we can take in an almost 360 degree panoramic view of the island. We leave Mdina through the Greek Gate and proceed to the catacombs followed by a drive to the south west of the island to Dingli cliffs which offer us breathtaking views of the open sea and the tiny island of Filfla. After a lovely lunch, the Medieval Highlighlts Tour continues with a visit to the botanic gardens of San Anton, home to some of the island`s rarest plants and trees and now home of the President of the Republic. Next we visit Mosta and its impressive dome, one of the largest standing unsupported domes in Europe. Our last stop of the Medieval Highlighlts Tour will be to the crafts centre at Ta` Qali where we can see glass blowing, pottery and filigree all at first hand and where we have ample time for shopping for souvenirs. A complete excursion capturing the central highlights of Malta.

Temples and local lifestyle - Full day
Don't miss this wonderful full day temples and local lifestyle tour : you will learn what a typical day would be like for the Maltese people in the south of the island and explore a few of the remaining unspoilt villages that through their winding roads and alleys lead us to a typical Maltese piazza where progress did not leave its mark. Our first stop brings together old and new with a visit to a modernised quarry, the Limestone Heritage that explains farmhouse building, stone decoration and quarrying which is one of the foremost trades in Malta. Next we visit the village of Qrendi where we discover the elaborated temples of Hagar Qim which is Malta's most prominent historical sight and from where we can enjoy breathtaking views of the mesmerising sea and the islet of Filfla.

Discover Gozo - Full day
While enjoying your lovely holiday in Malta, one cannot miss this fantastic full day excursion to Gozo which is only a twenty minute ferry crossing away. As soon as we set foot in the pretty Gozitan port of Mgarr we will notice that although both islands are similar in history and developement, Gozo has a character entirely of its own. We can see that Gozo boasts of more greenery than Malta with its hilly landscape and picturesque countryside, making it an island full of charm waiting to be discovered by this beautiful tour to discover Gozo. In this excursion we visit all the popular landmarks of Gozo such as the Citadel in Victoria, the famous Azur Window in Dwejra and the rocky cliffs in Xlendi Bay. Also included is a delicious three course lunch together with a spectacular cultural experience with a visit to Ggantijja Temples (except on Monday) which are known to be the oldest freestanding temples in the world. Since Gozo is well known for its woollen goods and handmade lace, honey and cheese we will also visit the market where we will have free time for shopping and to sample all these at first hand.
Excursion dates: from 1st January to 31st December 2016 the excursion will take place every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
