Forget coach journeys – this tour’s all about seeing Malta’s scenery from more exciting modes of transport. First off, you’ll climb aboard a powerboat, which will whiz you along Malta’s east coast. You’ll pass the Sliema Coastline, the town of Bugibba, St Paul’s Island and Mellieha Bay. Leaving Malta behind, it’s onwards to the island of Comino, where you’ll get to see the Comino caves, before crossing the Gozo channel and heading for the Mgarr Harbour. Here, you’ll disembark and climb into a 4x4 vehicle. Then you’re off again. This time, though, you’ll be speeding along Gozo’s terrain. First on the sightseeing agenda is the Xewkija Dome, which is perched on top of a rotunda church that can hold a congregation of 3,000 people. Then it’s onwards past the Sanap cliffs and Xlendi Bay. Your next stop is Victoria, Gozo’s capital city. This place is full of impressive Baroque and medieval architecture, so have your camera ready. Lastly, you’ll make tracks for Hondoq Bay, where you’ll get to enjoy around 40 minutes of free time to relax and have a snack before heading back to the ship.
If the weather's not so great, you'll be transported by bus to Cirkewwa where you'll catch the powerboat towards Gozo. Minimum age for this tour is 7 years old. If you'd like to use the beach during free time, remember to pack a towel and suncream.
