Type: Performances
Owner description: An unforgettable experience of a unique Maltese folklore show and dinner, giving eager audiences a glimpse of Malta through the ages, as this tiny but significant Island of ours journeys from the prehistoric to present times… with special emphasis on one of the greatest chapters in Maltese history … the Knights of St. John and the Great Siege, when a small garrison of the famous Knights of St. John together with our heroic Maltese defenders managed to defeat the mighty Ottoman Empire. A talented cast of dancers and entertainers dressed in rich medieval costumes and shining armour together with our magnificent horses, will entertain, excite and amuse you during two hours of non-stop action, song and dance. Witness a colourful fusion of tribal music, folk dancing, carnival, fire dancers, knights on horseback, live battles and much more highlighting Maltese culture, traditions and folk.

I took my two kids (ages 6 and 11) to the show and we all loved it. The staff were amazing, taking pictures with my kids before the show, as well as interacting with them during the show. We all loved the ambience of the arena, with all the seats looking onto the stage. It was impressive. I'm not sure... More

My family and I visited the show this year and had a wonderful time! Included in the price of the tickets you get: transportation from your hotel, the show, a fabulous meal, and drinks. Being part of a large family, we were relieved to get this fabulous package all in one low price. When you arrive at the venue, you... More

Without knowing what to expect and having read some bad reviews, we were completely open minded and decided to see for ourselves. Yes, it is probably a bit expensive for what it is, but it is also a good night and an interesting way to experience a countries history, certainly better than spending it on a tour bus. The hostess... More

Went to see this show with transport from our hotel. Price for two was 96 euros, but thought with a 3 course meal included maybe this wasnt too bad. Unfortunately the food was very poor. The first course was some sort of rice dish, as we were very hungry we ate it, but it wasnt very appetising. Second course was... More

Went on our first night in Malta and going to this sort of thing in the states, we thought it would be worth a go. The 48 euro price we thought was a bit steep. The night overall was ok, there were pearls of great elements such as fire throwing, sword fighting and horse dressage but was overshadowed by lots... More

Malta , the small gem in the mediterranean has seen it all since a few tousands years ago. The Malta Nights Extravanganza gathers all this history in an amazing way with a team dedicated to perform well and professionally. The food was excellently cooked to perfection typical of Maltese cuisine. Strongly recomended for families with children and couples alike. Thanking... More

i don't like writing bad reviews about anything or anyone, but this extravaganza at €48 per person deserves no better. It started on the wrong foot, over 1 hour traveling from hotel to hotel picking up punters, plus of course the time from the last customer to the site itself. And then we were left considerably far from the venue... More

With 7,000 years of history Malta certainly has a great story to tell, but this so-called "extravaganza" isn't it. Similar in setup to Medieval Times in the US, patrons are seated in groups around an arena. This one is smalla and I think it detracts from the overall show. The night starts with 4 people on horses riding around in... More
