Small Group Tour of Gozo with Victoria and Ggantija Temples

Gozo and Malta are separated only by a narrow channel, but the differences are eye-catching. Gozo is greener, more laidback and sparsely populated. Get the lowdown on the island on this adults-only small group tour with visits to the Victoria Citadel, Ta'Pinu Basilica and Dwejra Bay. Yohanna, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘The mosaics at Ta'Pinu are a recent addition, dating from 2017. They feature 20 mysteries of the rosary mounted on four circular walls in what had previously been an unsightly car park.'After a short trip by ferry to the island, you'll head to Qala Point first, for unobstructed views over the Maltese Archipelago. Then, it's off to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ggantija Temples, which pre-date the Egyptian pyramids. The historic theme continues at the medieval Citadel of Victoria, the island's capital. Yohanna says, ‘Victoria was originally named Rabat, however, to commemorate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1887, its name was changed. You'll see lots of British influence here, due to it 164 years under British rule.'Next up is a visit to the salt pans, to see how salt is harvested on the island. After stopping for a lunch made from locally sourced ingredients at a traditional Gozitan restaurant, you'll head to Ta'Pinu Basilica, where you can grab some Insta-perfect snaps. Last but not least, you'll visit the impressive geographic features in and around Dwejra Bay – the Fungus Rock and the Inland Sea lagoon.

After that we'll head to St. Paul's Catacombs, a network of underground cemeteries dating back to the 3rd century BC. These burial chambers are the earliest evidence of Christianity in Malta.

Introducing Malta

More than 300 days of sunshine a year, secluded coves, Baroque basilicas and historic temples – you could say Malta has quite a few strings to its bow. The island is situated between Sicily and North Africa, which means Malta is considered by many to be one of the best diving and snorkelling destinations in the Mediterranean. Apart from sunbathing and swimming, you can also soak up the culture. Valletta and Mdina are two fascinating cities that trace their origins to the age of chivalry. Whether you like history, nature or good food, there is something for everyone in Malta.

Top six things to do in Malta

1. Visit the Blue Grotto

When you think of Malta, the famous Blue Grotto instantly springs to mind. This large sea cave is located close to Zurrieq in the south of the island. Due to the shape and location of the grotto, the morning sun creates a shimmering reflection on the water in brilliant shades of blue. It’s a popular attraction, so if you’re planning an excursion to the Blue Grotto, make sure to book early. The view from the top of the rocks is also worthwhile.

2. Explore Valletta, Mosta and Mdina

Combining culture, heritage and unique locations, Valletta, Mosta and Mdina are three of Malta’s most beautiful cities. Valletta, the capital, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in its entirety, and is home to impressive bastions, fortifications and a cathedral with an eye-catching dome. In car-free Mdina, you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet and views over the countryside from its star-shaped city walls. And in Mosta, you can’t miss the vast domed basilica, which survived three bombing raids during the Second World War.

3. Catch a boat to Gozo

Just 25 minutes away from the island by boat, Gozo is Malta’s greener and more laidback little sibling. Its capital, Victoria, has an impressive citadel, while the Church of St George is also worth a visit. The countryside Basilica of Ta' Pinu is also a must-see. The island is small, so you could see everything on a daytrip to Gozo. And if you have time to spare, enjoy some time by the sea at Rambla Bay.

4. See the picturesque Marsaxlokk

Marsaxlokk is an authentic fishing village in the south of Malta. The colourful fishing boats anchored in the water make for a picturesque scene, and the market on Sunday mornings completes the traditional experience. Fish lovers are sure to be in for a treat here when it comes to mealtimes, too.

5. Enjoy a day at Marine Park

One of the most fun attractions for the whole family is Marine Park. It’s a great opportunity to interact and understand more about dolphins, sea lions, reptiles and parrots. You can even become an animal carer for a day as you help the park rangers feed and check up on the animals. You will also find a children’s playground, restaurant, souvenir shop and an educational classroom within the grounds.

6. Discover the Megalithic temples

By far Malta’s oldest attractions are its Megalithic temples. With many dating back more than 4,500 years, they’re among the oldest surviving temples from that period anywhere in the world. The limestone temple complex of Hagar Qim, in the south of Malta, and the temples of Tarxien in the east are not to be missed by history buffs.
