The waterfront area is fantastic. To stand high up and view the Valletta Harbour and the Grand Harbour is great but almost impossible to see it all as they are vast! Take one of the bus tours instead, some include a boat trip around the harbours and usually with a language option to help understand the importance of this island... More

We booked a Grand Harbour Tour with Capt Morgan Tours on the sailing boat Fernando and it was a great way to view Valletta and get to know its history. This was our first trip to Malta and it was great to view the fortifications of the three cities from the Sea. We stated from Sleima via a pleasantly choppy... More

I have been to malta 5 times--this is the first time I have viewed the fortifications of the three cities from the Sea. We stated from sleima- pleasantly choppy-a run round the creek and then out to sea to get to the Grand Harbour. At the bow end all of the passengers on the port side of the boat had... More

Recommended as an early trip on the holiday as it really gives you a good picture of how the island developed, and makes you appreciate the scale of Valletta's walls and the importance of the harbours.

We thoroughly enjoyed this 90 minute boat trip around Valletta's two harbours. We had walked a lot in Valletta itself and found it very interesting to see the historic, fortified walls, and the buildings, from a different angle. The sea was rather choppy on the day we toured, and I was glad we were on a bigger boat as we... More

We did the 2 Harbours Latini Cruise (Marsamxetto and Grand Harbours) which lasts about 90 minutes - really interesting. You see all the sights from a different angle without having to walk (!) and as you sail around there is a very good commentary explaining exactly where you are, the purposes of the different docks and the buildings you are...

This is a great way to view an amazing site, you get an idea of the magnitude of the harbour and the walls. There are tonnes of tours operating from siliema, a short ferry ride across the harbour from the centre of Valletta and I could not say how they all compare. All I can say is that everyone seems...

There are plenty of harbour tours to be had, whichever you take it`s money well spent to hear about how the island came about and see the stupendous buildings from you wonderful vantage point

This was a great way to see the sights all around Sliema and Valetta, the commentary was really good and the lady spoke a variety of languages very well. Just be aware that it is possible to burn and freeze at the same time! Although it was a lovely sunny day both my husband and I managed to slightly burn... More

Pick a sunny day and embark on a tour of Malta's grand harbor with its several bays and inlets. There is no better way to appreciate what formed the island and its people.
