If you are a first-timer to Malta, the hop-on hop-off tours are a good way to see many places on the island, but:
It takes about 3 hours to do just one loop, so be prepared to spend a lot of time on the bus. The audio guides on each seat are quite informative but as everywhere, the free provided cheap, low quality headphones are really bad making the audio sound worse than it is. Simple solution: bring your own !
We started our tour in Marsaxlokk but had no idea where the bus would stop. Many bus stops have no indication that the Hopon/off buses stop there. So we asked several locals to give us a hint. Even the customer service was unable th provide the correct bus stop. So we waited at the wrong bus stop and missed the bus and waited an extra hour as the buses go only about very hour.
If you know where to go, there are faster options, Local transportation (combined with google maps on your phone) are an inexpensive way to get around, but still it takes a lot of time.
Your fastest option is to use a taxi. They are not too expensive. We used eCabs, which is more or less the same as UBER. Fixed rates, no hassle with payment to the driver, the rides are automatically taken from your account. In our case there was no issues with the credit card. Each ride was billed correctly.

Good Afternoon Thank you for the feedback regarding our Hop on Hop off tour. Our headphones which are provided on board are not like the ones you get with your expensive mobile devices, as im sure you can understand these are for one time use only due to hygiene regulation's set out by local authorities. We would recommend if you have your own to use them, however our headphones do work well. We do have detailed maps and Brochures on all our coaches with the routes and stops clearly marked on them as well as the frequency at which the coaches come to each point. We thank you once again for your insightful feedback, and will ensure that all coaches are stocked with the maps and timetables.

Great Value for 3 hours. Possibly too long. But if thats tbe case then simply get off! Do this on you first day. Essential that you do not get the North tour. as its not as good. Not all head sets work. Move seat until it does We had a great driver.

Incredibly rude staff.

We went to the stop at St Julian where there were two bus companies, this one and City Sightseeing.

The rep for this company was a British Ex-Pat, who for at least 20 minutes, rather than selling this company, was slating the other company and grumbling at customers who had chosen the other one.

Not only was he swearing in front of clients, he was having a go at the other company's rep to the point it was bullying. The other rep eventually had to walk away because this man was making such a scene.

A very unprofessional attitude and as a result we went with the other company.

Great way to see the Island and a good price,you can plan your day out or just hop off if you see something that catches your eye.Dont expect the head phones to work though,its 50/50 chance that the bus your on will work.

Good day out and a good price.

Very good service, and having the ability to drive around Malta at a good price and the ability to decide where you want to get on and off without a hassle was great.

We had an amazing trip in a challenging time of corona virus outbreak. Debbie - the agent, was extremely kind and helpful. Even thought we could not see everything due to the virus outbreak we definitely made the most of it thanks to the tour.

We did the North, South and Gozo Hop On Hop Off tours as well as the Harbour Cruise. Kurt was fantastic and very accommodating with arranging pick up and drop off for us. He communicated promptly and was so friendly, helping to recommend shopping and restaurants. He’s a gem!
The South tour was my favorite in terms of places I wanted to see. The Harbour Cruise was great with commentary and great views. I highly recommend.
