Sie wissen nicht, wie Sie Ihren Sonntagmorgen verbringen sollen? Dann begleiten Sie uns auf den Markt im Fischerdorf Marsaxlokk. Später geht es weiter zur Blauen Grotte, wo Sie das kristallklare Wasser erleben.
What a desappointment! Actually, I paid 26€ for a trip that I could have done easily by normal bus for 2€ ! On the way out, the pick up in the different hotels took more than an hour (for a half day trip)! The explanations of the guide are of no interest! I just lost 26€! My advice: go by yourself with your guide book. It's easier, faster and cheaper!
Four of us took this tour. We were picked up on time and proceeded to fill the bus around the island. Linda, our English guide, was very welcoming and accommodating. She lost no time in getting us to the important sites. We had plenty of time to look around, shop for souvenirs, take pictures or grab a snack. At the end of the tour, we asked to be dropped off near the Hypogeum instead of our hotel. This was no problem and we made it to our next tour with time to spare. A great experience!
The only thing that needs attention is the volume of the microphone on the bus. It may have been Linda's voice or the equipment, but it was difficult to hear the English descriptions over the air conditioning and the non-English passengers who chose to talk when the tour was not in their language.
Unfortunately we were taken to Rabat rather than Valletta - they announced it on the bus that the Valletta market wasn't on but that we should have all been told, although we hadn't had any communication to say that the plan had been changed. Rabat was ok but there wasn't much there - we spent far too much time there for how little it was. The market at Rabat was also massively disappointing - considering we'd been taken there on the basis that the Valletta market wasn't on we were expecting it to be an interesting place for shopping. The market was actually like what you'd have in the UK maybe on Albert Square? - selling things like huge bottles of laundry detergent and trashy clothes. We looked around for a bit but very quickly realised this wasn't the sort of market we'd been expecting, it was more just for locals to get cheap deals on the essentials. If Valletta is unavailable in future I'd suggest this tour could go elsewhere for an alternative.
