On this tour you will visit the main highlights of Valletta, while also visiting an often ignored but equally fascinating part of the city. The tour starts at the modernized entrance of Valletta, and while walking along the majestic streets of the city, your guide will point out all the main landmarks, while keeping you entertained with fascinating and little-known true stories. What was it like to be a patient at the Holy Infirmatory? Or a galley slave on the ships of the Order? Were all Knights behaving in accordance to their vows?

I highly recommend this tour and Ben our guide was outstanding. He was very proud of high country and just a delight to be shown so many sights over the 3 hours. Enjoyed hearing all the history and stories. It was such a good way to get to know Valletta, thanks Ben!

Great fun. Ben was very entertaining. The weather was unusually very bad but we enjoyed it nonetheless. Ben gave us some recommendations for lunch and we followed his suggestions and enjoyed lunch at the Museum Cafe the next day. Definitely recommend this walking tour.
Fun and interesting walking tour

We had an excellent time with Ben, our humble tour guide with the yellow umbrella. The walk started at 5.00 pm which I think is the best time for the walking tour. The walk with Ben is extremely enjoyable and relaxing, with loads of interesting information about Valletta and Malta and covering many different aspects. He is indeed very knowledgeable and responsive. So impressed that he can explain why St John's is a "co" Cathedral in such a succinct and precise way. We enjoyed the walk with Ben tremendously. Strongly recommend this walking tour on the first day of visit, to get a good understanding of Malta. :)
Informative and funny

Really informative guided walk from Mario who was a geography and history teacher so knew his beans! Felt like we learned a lot about the history of Malta without it being dry. Would definitely recommend for first time visitors. Would like to have an opportunity to pause to get drink or toilet break!
