This is one of the highlights of my trip to Malta. Our guide, Daniela, is a chef who is passionate about not only the food, but the history of Malta. She showed us traditional restaurants that locals know and love, but the average tourist is unlikely to discover on their own.
This was a really excellent tour of Valletta with four food stops and plenty to eat in places a bit off the beaten track that we would not have found otherwise. Nick was an interesting, knowledgeable and humourous guide….. if you want something a bit different from a standard walking tour I would definitely recommend this. The chocolate drink was amazing!
Highly recommended. In this three-hour we stopped at five city-centre establishments to savour the delights of real Maltese cuisine. I liked the venues so much that I went back to three of them later in my holiday. Nick’s knowledge, humour and unique take on the history of his homeland enhanced the experience greatly. Great memories from something that we would never have discovered ourselves. Thanks!
good start to a holiday in Malta. The guide was very entertaining!
|Nicky brought Malta to life through her love of food and history on a must-do tour!!|
|We met our wonderful guide Nicky on the steps of the St Johns Co Cathedral in Valletta and from then on it was a fantastic culinary tour encompassing the social history of the Maltese. From delicious breakfast pastries through typical Maltese specialties including the national dish of rabbit we were treated to a tapestry of Maltese life on a plate. Alongside this we were treated to a variety of local Maltese drinks and sweets including a delicious glass of warm chocolate with fig liqueur that was poured straight from a tap! (I’ll say that again … liquid chocolate on tap!!) What’s not to love? Throughout Nicky’s love of both food and history shone through as she took us from the Knights of St John through to the Arab and Sicilian influences and the effect of Maltese social history on the food they eat today. Nicky was charming and knowledgeable, ready to answer any questions we had. The whole trip felt laid back, unhurried and extremely pleasant as we made friends within our multicultural group of travellers over a prickly pear liqueur and a cannolo. Highly recommend this as a must-do tour for foodies and non-foodies alike – great value for a a lovely introduction to Valletta and Malta. Just make sure you only have a light breakfast before hand!!|
This is by far the best walking/food tour I have ever taken. Our guide was Nick and he was fantastic. Nick was VERY VERY knowledgeable and he is what made our tour amazing. There were 6 of us that booked together, plus 2 other people on the tour. Nick did a great job making everyone feel welcome and included. Nick had great stories about the food, provided so much history about Valletta and Malta, and was just an all around great guide. The food on the tour was excellent and you definitely want to arrive hungry. It was a great way to experience the Maltese food and culture. It is he best way to see Valletta.
“Amazing tour! Learned a lot about the history and food of Malta and Valletta. Got to try amazing dishes and drinks in a mixture of new and traditional places, never would have gone to most of them on my own. It was a wonderful experience and Nicky was lovely!”
Well worth every euro. Maria was a brilliant informative and friendly guide. Would encourage everyone
to take the tour.
