6.5 euro for a week ticket to go anywhere on the island. Must be the best deal in Malta. True they can be a little slow and cumbersome at times, but what a way to see the small villages and countryside. No one trying to sell you tours or trips. Sit and relax, your on holiday, take in the scenery.... More

We used the bus last year on all the routes and had no issues. This year we have only done the North route with my folks. My father isn't the best on his feet , so using the tour bus is a great way for use to get a round. Can I fist say we where happy with the rep... More

We arrived in Malta last Friday and knew what we wanted to see and do after much research. We thought the hop on hop off Malta Sightseeing bus would get us to most places safely and on time - wrong! The buses are overcrowded, the commentary headphones often didn't work, some drivers speed to get to the next destination and... More

Maltasightseeing open top buses. There are three routes, north and south of Malta and Gozo. If you want to get a flavour of Malta these are an easy option and they follow a pre-planned route with stops at many places of interest. This allows you to hop on and hop off at these places as when you want. They run... More

We took the South route on a Sunday. The itinerary itself is very good. Unfortunately they packed people into the busses. Of course without a seat you cannot listen to the narrative delivered by head phone. No worries - if you get a seat, there is, based upon our experience, only about a 25 % chance that the headphone will... More

When we arrived off the cruise ship in Malta we went to the tourist booths where they are selling tours, etc. We were looking for the Hop On Hop Off bus which we highly recommend and have used in all the major European cities that we visit, just to get our bearings. There were two bus companies and when I... More
