Not a historical re-enactment but a truly spectacular show where cannons boom and swords clash as knights in shining armour and sumptuous dressed oriental warriors confront each other. An unforgettable music score, beautifully choreographed classical and contemporary dance routines and equestrian displays. « less

Through the medium of song and dance, 3 horses try to bring the history of Malta to life aided by about two dozen humans. It is an imaginative interpretation of Maltese history - I previously had no idea that Neolithic folk had a flair for aerobics-style dance. Equally, when it came to the fight sequences, I was surprised to learn... More

What can I say? An interesting way of spending an evening. The spectacle was on something of a small scale but, nevertheless, well done. A series of tableaux depicting transition from pre-history to the present time. It was a bit patchy with large gaps. Some eras which we considered to be of significance, we glossed over quite quickly. Other aspects... More

Waste of 96 Euro, I would have had more fun burning the money or throwing it into the sea. This is nothing like Medieval Times at the Excalibur in Las Vegas although that is what we were led to believe. You start out with a bus ride from your hotel where you fear for your life, my wife thought we... More

When booking through one of the agencies handing out brochures along the Silema seafront, my mother in law asked if it was OK to bring our 9 month old daughter with us and was advised yes, so booked for six adults and a baby. When we got to the venue, they had no record of a baby being part of... More

We paid around 50 euro each for 6 of us and were advised that it was a meal and free wine and soft drinks and lasted a few hours. Also that we didnt need to bring a wheel chair for my father as it was only a short walk from drop off point. Yes short walk for myself, but not... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Knights Spectacular Show. The make it easy and pick you up at your hotel, and whisk you away to the estate where the show is. The actors are very talented and the show was a great way to take in Malta's history while eating a great meal with wine included. We can't wait to go back... More

We got tickets to the show as it would be a nice night out, and to learn a little bit more about the Maltese history. The ticket included return coach transfers to the venue. Once you got there, the Montekristo Estate looks really nice (and you can see that they are developing the area a lot - it is a... More

Meal ok, show ok. Very long queue outside on arrival, eventually you realise this is because everyone has a very quick photo taken with a couple of actors and an eagle, you cannot bypass this. They then want to charge you 5 euro's for it and the computer system kept playing up which added to the wait. The show is... More
