      Nice boat ride
      Larger than i expected ship that took us to Gozo, all in all not really al ot to say except the ship made good time each way and the crew was pleasant. Best to sit on the left ( Port ) side going to Gozo for the best view and quick off load. On the way back Right ( starboard ) side and as close to the door as you can same reason. They gave us free tickets to go on the lift. We did not buy the bus ticket instead got a cab driver to take us around.

      Not very fun
      Wanted to get the ferry to Gozo to explore on our short trip to Malta. Was aiming to do a morning on Gozo. Got to the ferry fort and was talked into buying an expensive ticket €60 for a couple which included hop on-hop off buses as was told getting around any other way is difficult. Got to Gozo, checked the bus schedule but quickly realised they don’t stick to the schedule. Bus left after half an hour waiting in the harbour. Decided to get off at Mixta cave where you are dropped off in the middle of nowhere with no directions. Quickly realised it’s a 30 minute walk to and from the cave. The cave itself is lovely but the walk isn’t easy. This information about the walk wasn’t shared. Got back to the bus stop eventually and the bus took forever to come (not on schedule). Spent some time in Victoria which was lovely. Got to the bus station to get the 14.25 bus to harbour, aiming to get the 14.45 ferry (it’s 10 mins from Victoria to the harbour). The bus arrived as the ferry was pulling away from the harbour. 1 hour wait to the next one. If Gozo Highspeed ferries are in partnership with the sightseeing buses, they should wait when they know there is a bus due, rather than leaving customers stranded.

      Terrible, unfriendly, unhelpful service
      I booked a trip for 4 adults for 11:45 on 9/5, this was booked on line the day before. When I finally got the confirmation, the time had changed to 06:45 which was totally unacceptable to us, we are 4 senior citizens. I tried to change it to the correct time, was told no way, I asked about cancellation was told no refund, next I knew booking cancelled by Viatour, asked why was told that I told them to cancel, I had not. They are an unhelpful, unprofessional company, would recommend nobody uses them. Managed to book direct with Gozo ferries and a rate that was €22 less.

      Amazing
      I loved the experience, it was truly amazing! Not to mention the beautiful view and the drinks at the perfect spot for safe fun! A great place to take kids and have fun with various games and amazing architectural details! I felt like in a cartoon and even had the pleasure of being the protagonist of a short film made by the animators!

      Very good tour but lunch should be optional
      The guide Olivia was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient. She took good care of the group and kept a count all the time. The included lunch was not to everyone's liking. It was a set menu. The 'vegetarian' main dish was an omelette. The lunch should really be an optional extra.

      Great tour of Malta’s sights
      Really interesting trip covering a lot of the main sights of Malta, with a short amount of free time in each. A 3 course lunch with wine was also included, along with a couple of shopping stops. Our guide was excellent, explaining all the historical background as we walked around.

      Good half day tour
      Good trip overall. Market was very busy on Sunday so it was difficult to get to see everything. Our guide was very informative and made the trip really enjoyable. The boat trip to the Blue Grotto was choppy but was worth the ride to see the beautiful water and caves at the end.

      Not for the faint hearted
      They should be clear is the conditions as it was not a nice journey at all. I have never been someone who suffers from sea sickness so this was a first. But the journey was very very rough, including quite scary moments! Many of the passengers were being sick, with only two loo’s it meant a lot were being ill with the sick bags provided. To the extent staff were kindly walking round with bin bags if needed. we decided we couldn’t face doing it on the way back so got the channel ferry and bus instead, if you do suffer with any sort of travel sickness or not great with motion, I would seriously consider other options

      Delightful visit.
      After a few minutes confusion about our booking we were delighted to be conducted around the palace by the Marquis himself - an erudite, charming, droll and deeply knowledgeable host. It is a beautiful building, with an interesting history, but much of the pleasure of the visit was the variety of stories that seemed to be attached to every article on display. There are many of them. Paintings, furniture and collectibles all had a history. We relished hearing a good number of them from the man himself. Many others remained untold, perhaps for another visit. What a privilege and treat!

      Worth every penny
      Amazing views and the guide was very knowledgeable. Half day tour was just perfect so we got to see enough but still be back at our hotel early.

      Only buy 1 way tickets .
      Only 45 mins from Valletta & not very expensive. For seniors it’s 3 euros or 6 return . But there the positives end. When we travelled it was a bumpy ride but nothing to worry about. When we got back to the harbour for the return trip , we eventually found a small notice saying that all trips were cancelled for the rest of the day and the next day due to “ adverse weather conditions “ Luckily we found that the bigger Gozo channel boat was still running & had to buy another ticket , plus a 1 & 1/2 hour bus trip back to Valletta. When I complained , I was told that they do put such cancellations on their Facebook page . I pointed out that we weren’t likely to be looking at this on a day out in Gozo but would have done , had we been informed that this was an option. I have asked for a refund , a small amount but I’m really annoyed by their lack of concern for their customers, but have got nowhere because I “ didnt book it on the internet “, even though I sent a copy of my tickets . On the day , there was no other information about possible cancellations & no information about what to do if their boat isn’t running . So my advice is ..only buy 1 way tickets . There’s no upside to buying a return .

      What’s the point of a high speed ferry if it runs an hour late?
      We’ve been standing in the queue at the harbour for just over an hour. The ferry is just pulling in - it was due to leave 47 minutes ago. No information given to all the people waiting and slowly freezing. Not recommended! Take a bus to Cirkewwa and get the reliable ferry!

      Great Craic
      Must admit, brilliant value considering how long we were out for incl. a light lunch with wine. Our guide was very knowledgeable and looked after us well and gave us her personal insights as a native from Malta. Mdina and Rabat were very picturesque to look at, I would recommend this for anyone going solo.

    We visited St. John's Co-Cathedral. Amazing. Walked across Malta and took the Sliema ferry to Sliema. In the afternoon we took the Grand Harbor Tour with Captain Morgan's boat. Another amazing tour. Took a cab back to the ship for 8 euro rather than the ferry and walking.

    Captain was on his mobile whilst stirring the boat, couldn't hear a word of the commentators and a German passenger was very rude. Not the best

    The harbor tour was appropriate, although the German explanations were difficult to understand. The announced harbor areas were visited.
