Small Group Tour of Gozo with Victoria and Ggantija Temples

Gozo and Malta are separated only by a narrow channel, but the differences are eye-catching. Gozo is greener, more laidback and sparsely populated. Get the lowdown on the island on this adults-only small group tour with visits to the Victoria Citadel, Ta'Pinu Basilica and Dwejra Bay. Yohanna, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘The mosaics at Ta'Pinu are a recent addition, dating from 2017. They feature 20 mysteries of the rosary mounted on four circular walls in what had previously been an unsightly car park.'After a short trip by ferry to the island, you'll head to Qala Point first, for unobstructed views over the Maltese Archipelago. Then, it's off to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ggantija Temples, which pre-date the Egyptian pyramids. The historic theme continues at the medieval Citadel of Victoria, the island's capital. Yohanna says, ‘Victoria was originally named Rabat, however, to commemorate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1887, its name was changed. You'll see lots of British influence here, due to it 164 years under British rule.'Next up is a visit to the salt pans, to see how salt is harvested on the island. After stopping for a lunch made from locally sourced ingredients at a traditional Gozitan restaurant, you'll head to Ta'Pinu Basilica, where you can grab some Insta-perfect snaps. Last but not least, you'll visit the impressive geographic features in and around Dwejra Bay – the Fungus Rock and the Inland Sea lagoon.

On this adults-only small group tour you'll discover Mosta Basilica, St. Paul's Catacombs and the walled town of Mdina. Matteo, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Mdina is possibly the best-preserved ancient walled city in Europe. It's known as ‘the silent city' for its peaceful streets and old-world atmosphere. The city is a beauty, built with stone that glows in the sun, and it's packed with cultural treasures.'First up is Mosta Basilica, famous for having the third-largest unsupported dome in Europe. After that we'll head to St. Paul's Catacombs, a network of underground cemeteries dating back to the 3rd century BC. These burial chambers are the earliest evidence of Christianity in Malta. Look out for the two carved circular stone tables, thought to have been used for funerary rites, or for celebrations honouring the dead.The tombs themselves are remarkable, you'll see that some are much grander to reflect the social standing of the occupant. Once we have finished our visit we'll head to a nearby restaurant for a typical lunch prepared with locally sourced ingredients, before finishing the day with a guided tour of fortified Mdina. Its old town, protected by ancient walls and a moat, offers a peek into the Malta of past centuries.

An optional boat trip into the grotto is available.Then we'll head to Marsaxlokk – one of the most picturesque spots in the country. This quaint fishing village hosts a large market down by the waterfront – make sure you check out the colourfully painted ‘luzzu' boats floating in the harbour.
