    …one of the best local experiences
  • “Our guide for the Valletta food tour was Nick. He was an exceptional host who was very engaged and knowledgable about the history of Malta and it’s food. He taught us a lot of history in addition to some of his own interpretations as a Maltese person, of how Malta’s food culture has developed.

    An exceptional host
  • “Maria was very knowledgeable. The tour described providing snacks but it was more of a feast (cheese or pea pastizzi and tea, Maltese pizza, Kinnie soda, veggies and rabbit, wine, chocolate beverage, Maltese dessert and special cocktail). Lots of walking and history along the many stops. 👍🏽  I would recommend the tour. I’d encourage you to do it early on in your stay to get insider info if possible.”

    …more of a feast
  • “Foodie must do! If you’re a foodie then you’ll want to add this tour to your Maltese travel plans. We enjoyed great food, drinks, history and conversation. It was a great way to explore Valletta, meet fellow travelers and of course sample great food and drinks from local shops and restaurants.”
