A fantastic way to see the sights. As a tip, do not buy your tickets in advance. Haggle with the organisers at Sliema where they will fall over themselves to give you a deal. Instead of 19 euros an adult and 10 for kids, we got three adult tickets for 45 euros and the kids for free. Well worth it... More

This is a small firm (by comparison with Captain Morgan cruises which seems to dominate the cruise ship area in Sliema) . Their boat does a nice two hour tour of the Grand and Sliema Harbours, and goes up and down the creeks. The commentary was in English and German. I found the loudspeakers difficult to make out sometimes. If... More

The Grand Harbour Tour with a guided tour boat is just what you need to start your discovery tour or just to enjoy and appreciate the fantastic city view from the sea. It is amazing how many fortresses there are! Not only one like in the most harbour cities but they are all over! One more magnificent than the other.... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the grand harbour and saw alot more of valetta and malts history and culture than we could have from the land. The tour guide was informative and fun, the boat comfortable and tour just long enough. Does get choppy and windy as you leave the harbour however!

I never knew Malta's harbor was so large, and the scenery is stunning. A lovely 90 minutes to see the city from the water, with the commentary and bobbing about on the water.

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...
