I have read a great deal to do with Malta's History and the link to Britain's Naval Forces, from the 1780's until 1970's. I followed the WW2 factual books about Malta and Britain's Naval forces, initially to keep Malta safe, then to use it as a staging assault base. Viewing Valetta Harbours from land, one cannot gain a good idea... More

You can visit the Grand Harbour on one of the many horbour cruise trips which can be purchased from all travel outlets and hotels. This is an excellent way to see the many facets of this amazing natural harbour and its history. Personally, I also like to view its bird's eye panorama from the Upper Barraka Gardens as well as...

Worth doing but where was all the detailed commentary about the harbours? We were given in heavily accented English very scant details of the different creeks and points of interest. Very difficult to grasp because of the heavy accent. Definitely made to feel we were being processed to get boat back ASAP for next tour . Shame, we were really... More

We bought a joint ticket for the sightseeing bus and the grand harbour tour for twenty euros each from St Pauls Bay , which was an excellent deal. The bot trip itself was very good and took about 90 minutes. Our boat captain was very entertaining, and we saw all of the harbour areas.I would recommend as an excellent trip.

The harbour tours are excellant.. See another side of a harbour too... Not just where the day trips moor up. But the creeks where the big posh boats moor.. lovely creeks with nice cafes.. then you see the history of Valletta all around and the docks too.. very close up.... such a worthwhile trip...

4th time in Malta and about the 8th time on the Captn. Morgan harbour tour. I have been very impressed previously with the guy commentating- blond/ginger hair. But this year we had Renata. Very, very, poor. Hard to understand her English, light on history, no mention of the watch towers around the harbours and no mention of the Great Siege... More

It's a Malta classic to do the Valetta Grand Harbour tour - and while it risks being a tourist trap (especially with so many people touting for it), it's still good. I was lucky enough to see it on a sunny day and suspect it's be far less fun on a miserable one. The guide spoke in English and German... More
