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…
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…
good start to a holiday in Malta. The guide was very entertaining!
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!”
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!
….. et riche en anecdotes Votre curiosité ainsi que votre faim seront comblés.”
The guide was well informed and made it very interesting. The food was plentyful and good quality. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Had a great time learning about the culture/history of Malta while enjoying the unique cuisine.
“I recommend this experience to every greedy people, and also to the ones who wants to know about maltese history, culture, architecture and way of life. Nicky is a passionate and caring guide. Thanks you!”
Recalling the history of Valletta with a great guide. Recalling the history of Valletta with a great guide….
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.
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
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…
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!
……. great way to taste the traditional dishes of Malta. Also good insight to some of the history of Valetta and Malta. Highly Recommend”
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.”
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.
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…
…. and is an absolute must if you visit Malta!”
Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and super nice!!! The food portions were bigggg. We loved this tour.
“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…
Nicky was our guide, and she was wonderfully engaging and informative……we would highly recommend this tour.
……. & the island of Malta and of course the amazing food. Nicky delivers the tour with great passion & enthusiasm which makes you want to learn more about Malta after the tour is over..”

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!”
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.
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
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.
…….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!
Wonderful experience of tasting local food and the history of Valletta.
and really full of knowledge on the food and culture of Valletta and Malta. we had a great time! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for an inside scope on the area and food of Valetta
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…
…… as well as personable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves to eat and learn!
We loved our tour!

…………with lots of food, coupled with interesting background information on the topic “food in Malta”. The tour guide was Maltese and had a very good expertise. A tour that I personally can and will recommend.
….. would recommend this to anyone with an interest in food specific to this area and was conveyed in a very engaging manner.
Congratulations on a fantastic experience. Our guide , Nick has strong passion and pride in Malta and in particular the capital city gem Valletta ,with a trophy chest full of interesting knowledge. A great experience combination.
This tasting experience was unique, fun and full of information. Our guide, Ingrid, was passionate about the Maltese cuisine, local culture and history, she not only showed us a great selection of traditional food and beverage, but also introduced quite a few historical places of interest to us.
“Our guide was Ingrid and she was great. Have a wonderful morning wondering around Malta, learning about the culture and eating some excellent food.”
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.
“Nick was an incredible guide. He has profound depth of knowledge of Malta and is proud to share his culture and heritage with you. After a month of travelling within Malta this was one of the best local experiences we had. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves food
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.
“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! 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.”
