This will be the most amazing experience of Valletta you will manage to get while trying different foods and drinks of these islands. All food and drinks we will be trying are included in the tour price. We get to walk along both the capital city Valletta and its suburb Floriana to visit the lesser known sites without missing on the more important monuments and palaces.

Chris was an amazing guide. He is very knowledgeable about Maltese history and was able to answer atypical questions that I had. He was extremely friendly and has adapted his tour well to handle COVID. I highly recommend booking this tour with Chris!

Chris is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Malta and it shows in the tour. The well chooses food spots mix in the history with food culture, and also work as a good break. He is engaging and good humoured and the time flies by.

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time with Chris. He answered all of our (my boyfriend's) annoying questions with enthusiasm, knowledge and humour. Chris took his time to explain the history of Valetta and gave us more food than I could handle (all delicious, except the snails for me haha). Thank you for a great day and we highly recommend it to all who come to Malta.

Es war wirklich eine sehr besondere Führung durch Valletta’s Geschichte und Genüsse. Christian ist ausgesprochen umsichtig, fürsorglich und sehr integrativ. Uns war zu keinem Zeitpunkt langweilig und wir haben spannende Dinge erfahren und sind mehr als ausreichend gustatorisch „verführt“ worden

Tolle Tour bei dem man Valletta mit seinen vielen Facetten kennenlernt. Christian hat sehr viel Wissen über die Stadt und ihre Geschichte das er wunderbar vermitteln kann und sehr offensichtlich auch möchte. Vorher am besten nicht frühstücken, zu essen bekommt man reichlich und es wäre schade zu satt zu sein. Thank you very much for the interesting and tasty tour through Valletta! :)
