Action packed and highly entertaining 3 course family dinner show based on the Great Siege of Malta. 50 performers and 8 trained horses, staged at "The Arena" at Montekristo Estates. 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.

Our trip for the dinner show was organised through the local Sun Spot tours agent, not to be confused with Mercury Direct UK tour operators. This was our second tour through this local agency and as they were 35 minutes late for the first tour pick-up we didn't panic till they were 45 minutes late for this tour. Tried to... More

Working in the Tourism industry, we received an invitation to come and see the show. 3 colleagues and myself decided to go yesterday....the expectation was not high to start with but the result was even worse than what we could have imagine. I explain: - Food was tasteless and dry...even found piece of steel sponge on the Ravioli ricotta!!! -... More

Wish we hadn't bothered! Checked on wheelchair access - was told all ok, including that they would get suitable transport for wheelchair user and the rest of our party, so although a little pricey we booked. Waited at our designated pick up point for our pick up, a guy came in with a clipboard looked at my chair, and walked... More

This spectacular really is. If you like big bangs and pageants this is for you. Colourful, noisy and informative. Warning - some of the bangs are really loud. They fire real cannons.

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
