Captain Morgan has the bigger boats and more tours than its competitors and they're good, but may be slipping into a rut. Friends who went with another company plying the exact same route got more tossed about in a smaller boat when it went round the headland into the other part of the harbour but they really enjoyed a more...

We got on the Captain Morgan boat from Sliema and the trip lasted around 1.5 hours. We went at the end of October but the weather was great, the water in the harbour was calm and we all enjoyed it. The ship itself is quite big and I recommend getting to the boat about 30 mins before departure; they let... More

Hope this isn't confusing. We did not do a tour. We were coming into Malta by ship. And the sun came up at just the right time. The harbour entrance is fascinating and must present problems to large ships. The colour of the stone is golden in the sunshine and a huge temptation for photographers and probably painters. As the... More

We got a "free cruise" as part of the City Sightseeing ticket. A great way to see the Grand Harbour.

There are several Hrabour cruises which are very nice covering Marsamxett and The Grand Harbour. For the traveller on a budget, or a family one can have a boat ride around the Grand Harbour for as little as 3€ return. Start at Upper Barrakka Gradens. Go down the lift and across the road look for the signs for the local... More

We had taken a bus to Vittoroso and planned to get a water taxi back to Valletta. Found a taxi just going out with another couple and agreed to join them. As he was dropping us off he offered to take us on a harbor tour for another few euros. We should have bargained, as I felt after going around... More

2 months ago I was looking for a rent-a-car service in Gzira and I found this place. I rented a car for 2 days, I paid for it with cash and the owner blocked 350 euros of my Visa credit card for the excess in case of accident. The first day everything was ok but I felt something was wrong... More

I was quite disappointed by this tour as expected to learn about the 3 cities and the history. I didn't learn a thing and the only thing I understood was the phrase "Popeye the sailor-man". As with other reviews, the only reason it didn't get the worst score was that it was free for us (included in the hop on... More

We had been told that a cruise around the 2 harbours surrounding Valletta was a must on our holiday. Having been on a cruise up to the Blue Lagoon the day before we knew that Captain Morgan ships offered this so set off to buy tickets on one of these. As we stepped of the bus onto the promenade we... More
