Love the tour and beautiful Harbor with its great architecture and historical sites. It was good value for money! Very picturesque beautiful scenery. The sea was calm, so total relaxation to capture beautiful post cards. It really blew me away!

We had not planned to do this trip but when walking along the front decided why not. Most informative tour added to our understanding of the history of Valletta . Well worth the value .

A boat tour round the harbour is a must but a lot of it is simply modern day shipping. The forts and churches are magnificent and whilst not all will think much of the industrial side of the tour, you can imagine how it might have been something like it is now during the 1940's when it was being bombed....

We had intended taking the Luzzu cruise but as we got off the ferry at Sliema, someone was selling tickets for Captain Morgan cruise on a large boat & we were told the cruise was just about to leave. We bought tickets & boarded. The boat didn't sail for another 20 mins. We had a seat on the upper deck.... More

The water was a bit choppy but the sun and the captain's commentary kept us fascinated. The tour lasted about 90 minutes and was excellent value for money. It really is the best way to see Valletta - just as the sea farers of old intended.

We decided to take the grand harbour tour and thought we would be on one of the larger boats, we were mistaken! However this added to the experience. The captain was entertaining and tried to distract us from the extremely choppy sea. Apparently he didn't cross the bay on the first trip. All went well with a good informative narrative

We chose Luzzu cruises after reading all the reviews and were very happy with our choice. The English commentary was very interesting (plus pre-recorded bits in German/French to suit the clientele on our trip) with lots of little extra asides/jokes from the captain - he probably tells them every trip, but it didn't feel like that. We could hear the... More

Did the harbour tour with Luzzu cruises(other cruises are available) and found it to be excellent.The commentary was in English ,followed by German was very comprehensive. The tour lasted approx 90minutes and covered every creek in Marsamxett Harbour as well as the Grand Harbour ,unlike some of the companies who tended to bypass the odd creek.I would recommend this tour...
