More than just a food tour

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.

Highly Recommended

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…

A first-class experience with a unique “taste” of Valletta

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…

Interesting tour,

good start to a holiday in Malta. The guide was very entertaining!

Nicky brought Malta to life….

5 stars 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…

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…

“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!”

Mdina food tour

Well worth every euro. Maria was a brilliant informative and friendly guide. Would encourage everyone to take the tour.


This is a great way to learn about Mdina and the foods of Malta.   There is more than enough food and beverages to fill you to the very top (and then some). It is a little bit pricey, but you will get your money’s worth. We came away with full minds and tummies!

“Expérience très intéressante….

….. et riche en anecdotes Votre curiosité ainsi que votre faim seront comblés.”

A very worthwhile experience

The guide was well informed and made it very interesting. The food was plentyful and good quality. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

A unique perspective on Maltese Culture

Ingrid gave our group such a unique perspective on Maltese culture through food and her personal life stories. I have learned a lot on her trip and felt that we really connected.

The experience was amazing, I can’t recommend this experience enough

Of course you have the chance to try the foods without this, but the insight we got about their culture was something above expectations. Our guide,  was an exceptional personality himself

Good food and GREAT history!

Our tour guide, Nick, was like a walking history book! He was able to answer all of our questions and we learned so much about Malta! So…if you enjoy tasting unique foods from a specific country and learning history at the same time, this food tour is the way to go! We would highly recommend…

The Tour was more than we had expected.

Ingrid was just amazing. Not only she was giving information about food but also a lot about the history of the buildings of Valletta. We had more than enough food. Happy we did it!

“Wonderful experience”

We had a wonderful food experience with Celine

She was knowledgeable about the city, the food and the culture. There was A LOT of food, so one thing guaranteed you won’t be starving after this experience. Delicious dishes and local products. Highly recommend this experience, as you get to see both the city and taste great local dishes.”

Mdina Food Tour – awesome!

We had such a great visit with Nick. Being able to learn about the town and discuss Maltese life with a guide was a big plus. We saw larger tours visiting the city, and we were so grateful for our personalized experience. Every stop was great with delicious food and wonderful service.

Excellent food tour.

Our tour guide Nick was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about Malta’s history. Growing up in Melbourne to Maltese parents I knew about Maltese food and the selection offered was a very good indication! I go on food tours in most cities I visit & this was one of the best ones. I highly recommend…

“One of the best food tours I’ve been to…..

…. and is an absolute must if you visit Malta!”

Great tour and awesome food!!!

Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and super nice!!! The food portions were bigggg. We loved this tour.

Nicky was a lovely host who took great care of us….

“The tour was an absolute delight. Great value for money – i think most people on the tour with us were impressed by how much variety we were able to try (both food and drink). The portions were not small either! Would definitely recommend coming on an empty stomach. Was thoroughly enjoyable…

Highly Recommended

Nicky was our guide, and she was wonderfully engaging and informative……we would highly recommend this tour.

“This was such a great experience!

We had a great tour of the city, heard about the geography/history, and were able to try some delicious food and drinks. Our guide, Nick, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and inviting. It was also a vegetarian-friendly experience. Highly recommend!”

Don’t eat beforehand

We had a great time on this tour. We started at 10am and finished close to 2pm (a little later than the 1pm schedule), but we had breakfast, lunch and dinner in that space of time. Ingrid was a great host, who was clearly interested in the subject.

Ingrid was enchanting

Our guide was so passionate about the culture and food of Malta, we found her to be so interesting. Don’t have breakfast before you go, there is plenty to try. You visit a number of establishments, we tried things we would never have picked. We all had a great time- thank you

Fantastic Food Tasting Tour

The tour company set up this private tour on short notice. We enjoyed plenty of food, beer, wine & liquors. Nick our guide was excellent, providing interesting, comical historical and current perspective during the tour. This is one of the best food tours I have taken and I highly recommend it.

“Nicky was immediately friendly and knowledgeable…

…….a two hour delay at takeoff and I arrived at 1200 for the 1000 start. But guide Nicky saved the day. After we all went to three spots to eat Nicky spent extra time taking me back to the previous dishes I missed. Such a nice gesture. ……… Lovely tour!

Well worth the cost

Wonderful experience of tasting local food and the history of Valletta.

Our guide Nick was fantastic

My guide was Nick, a very knowledge and enthusiastic person

I love history and he had information about Malta, Valletta , and the Knights of Malta that I would not have learned otherwise. The food and drinks were very interesting from the Cactus liquor to the mashed peas pastry. I look forward to returning another day to spend more time at the places he took…

Nick was our guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable

…… as well as personable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves to eat and learn!

This tour is a must if you visit Valletta

This tour is a must if you visit Valletta. It’s a great way to familiarise yourself with the town , discover the best places to visit and enjoy a morning sampling Malta’s traditional food and drink. Plenty of foods stops so go hungry and pace yourself.

…one of the best local experiences

An exceptional host

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.

…more of a feast

“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…

Foodie must do!

“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.”
