  • We get to try the cooked infused Maltese coffee with chicory, cloves and aniseed.
  • We get to taste the local bitter sweet drink, Kinnie.
  • A nice bottle of local beer at one of the Valletta clubs to wash down the ftira with.
  • The Maltese have pastizzi for breakfast and we will let you decide whether you like the pea or ricotta ones better.

Welcoming, engaging and interesting from the outset.
As our first day trip on the island of Malta we could not recommend the delightful jovial banter with Christian and his introduction to our small group of compadres enough... having done double figures of capital city food and wine tours elsewhere it rates in our top 3 as we had delicious food, insights of history and it leaves us with fond and enduring memories of Valletta and the one of a kind island of Malta. We cannot recommend this adventure/experience enough for its variety and balanced tone and delivery... we'd like a Chocolate District in EVERY location too!!! Eve and Chris

We are in Valletta for a short break so any tours we took were going to have to be top notch!! So happy to report that this is great in every way. Chris met us at 10:30 and made everyone feel comfortable as we introduced ourselves, there were 10 in all, 4 from Ireland, 4 from the US and 2 not from Amsterdam…but The Hague, as we all know that Amsterdam is overrated.
Chris was such a professional and gave us a great tour, we sampled plenty of local delicacies and some nice drinks also on the way. The tour lasts about 3.5 hours and is just packed with history,facts and entertainment. The amount of people is limited to 10 on each tour, so my best advise is to get in early and BOOK NOW!!
On our next visit, we will go on some other tours that Chris leads. Thanks for a great morning and we look forward to hearing more stories about ice and sorbets in the future.

Many thanks Kieran for a beautiful review albeit you ruined all my prospective Amsterdam clients 😛. It was a really beautiful morning going round Valletta while meeting the people behind the many restaurants, bars, various shops, cafes, nunneries😉 and many other locations we walked through. Bigger thanks to Caroline for closing an eye to your special comments throughout our experience and looking the other way when Etna got visible in the tour. Beyond all the jokes, was a real pleasure to get to know you both and all others on this amazing day together. Many thanks Chris

We met Chris and the rest of our small group of 7 in the morning and the tour lasted until after lunch. We tried some traditional breakfast food right at the start and had other tasters throughout the day, finishing off with a generous lunch. You won’t need to eat anything before this tour.

Chris was very friendly and explained the origins of the food and drink we were trying and some history of Malta. If you aren’t a history scholar, don’t worry because everything is very accessible and he explained some very interesting connections whilst showing us around and stopping off at various places. Chris is Maltese and worked as a qualified guide for several years before setting up this tour. He’s genuinely interested in his country and its people and wanted us to enjoy the experience too.

I can’t fault this tour and I highly recommend it to anyone

Chris, our guide was great from the very start. He wade the group feel at ease with each other by way of introductions, where they came from and what they did for a living. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history and origin of the food we were tasting as well as the landmarks in the city. He was also very caring and concerned about the welfare of the group at all times and made himself available to be contacted at any time on any matter. Best tour guide on our visit to Malta 😊

Chris was just a fabulous guide - our little group had the best morning exploring all that Valletta has to offer.
This is amazing value for money, not only because of the tonne of food you get to try (I wish I could have eaten more!) but Chris has such a wealth of knowledge about the city that you just never would have known otherwise.
I would throughly recommend anyone looking to have an authentic and intimate small group experience - thanks again Chris!

Cannot recommend this tour enough!! Chris was so much fun, filled with knowledge on the city’s history and it’s food and drink. We spent several hours (that felt like minutes), walking the city, visiting the local stalls, shops, cafes and bars, eating and drinking the best of what Valletta has to offer. You will learn a huge amount of the country/city’s colourful history spanning centuries while filling yourself with gastronomic delights and having a laugh along the way. Definitely DO NOT have breakfast before the tour-you will be full!

Chris’ food tour of Valletta rocked! He incorporated sampling of all kinds of Maltese breakfast and lunch food with walking around beautiful Valletta and learning some of its’ history. He is extremely engaging, knows his facts and presents them in a fun, easily understandable way. Simply the best tour we have been on, anywhere!

I love how small and intimate this tour was with a mix of like minded people from around the world. Highly recommended, must do if staying in valetta.

Chris really knows his stuff and has a great sense of humour. He takes time to know his group and makes everyone feel comfortable with not just him but each other! A great event. Remember NOT to have breakfast when going on this tour as you’ll be probably fed😂!

We really enjoyed the tour, Chris was very engaging and knowledgeable, and he is passionate about the rich history and food culture of Malta. His understanding of history and local landmarks allows him to bring to life the key stages in the fascinating past of this small nation. The food elements are a real bonus of this tour, and add cultural understanding which makes this a really worthwhile and interesting tour. This is a must do tour if you are looking for the true flavours and history of Valetta.
