Bugibba Tour

The Bugibba tour departs right next to the Bus terminus and proceeds to explore the seaside area and its many restaurants, shops, bars and hotels. The train also goes into the older part of St. Paul's Bay (which Bugibba forms part of) passing by the Wignacourt Tower and an impressive chapel built by the Knights.

Rabat Tour

Malta Fun Trains would like to introduce you to their new trackless train which operates in Rabat Malta.

The Train departs from a terminus next to the Domus Romana outside Mdina.

The sightseeing train tour provides an informative commentary on the historical, cultural and architectural importance of the area whilst providing great fun for all the family.

The tour’s duration is approximately 30 minutes with an 8km route that passes close to Mdina Main Gate and Casino Notabile, entering into the heart of Rabat next to St. Paul’s Church, the catacombs of St. Agatha and St. Paul’s and thereon into Ghar Barka outside Rabat.

The train proceeds into Mtarfa viewing the Royal Navy Hospital and the Clock Tower then downhill with magnificent and panoramic views of Malta and the old capital Mdina. The train passes over the bridge close to the Old Railway Station and thereafter up the steep hill close to Mdina Bastions and through Greek Gate Tunnel before ending the tour at the terminus next to the Domus Romana.

The train goes from outside St Johns and costs €5 the journey karts around 35 minutes and it is also w/c accessible. It is an easyway to get up and down the steep hills whilst getting an overview of the city. Good value for money, and good fun too.

Four of us did the Maltafuntrain trip around Mdina on the 5th November and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Excellent commentary and the trip was made even better by Vince our driver. Very good value for money and would thoroughly recommend it.

This was great value for money - 5euros. The Guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip very entertaining. It let us see parts of Valletta that we weren't going to be able to get to on our day trip and we would definately recommend it. I'm not sure how long the journey took as we were too busy looking...

this is a great value for money ride around bugibba, the driver is very entertaining and a good laugh, the commentry is informative also so if you are near the bus station around the top of the hour hop on for 45 minutes you wont regret it, sorry forgot to say it costs 5 euros but well worth it.

Malta fun train We took this while visiting the silent city of Mdina. It Takes about 45 mins and goes around the outskirts of Mdina and neighbouring Rabat. It is a good gentle way to see the town and decide where else you would like to visit. Cost about €10

This is the third time I have visited Malta. The train ride is an excellent attraction because it captures the essence of the fortress city in one go. It should be the first stop of every visitor, who can then plan & prioritise what to do next and in what order. It runs every hour from the cathedral of St... More
