We spent a day with Stephen touring Gozo. He is an incredible guide - a professional botanist who knows everything about Gozo’s nature. Hiking with him was really interesting. Stephen knows culture and history of his land. He is very good at explaining the way of life. You cannot wish for a better guide in this incredibly beautiful island. Finally (and beyond the scope of sightseeing) we asked Stephen to help us choose Gozian wine and honey as souvenirs. We are now back home tasting Stephen’s delicious recommendations and thanking him for a great day at Gozo.

We just spent half a day hiking along Gozo´s southern coast, lead by expert botanist Stephen Mifsud, and I can honestly say that I have never learnt so much in such a short space of time! Stephen not only pointed out the vast array of plant life along those cliffs, which is the definite focus of the walk, but also the wildlife as well as cultural bits of information like the Maltese language. He also patiently addressed all the questions and cross references we came up with along the way. It is an absolute pleasure to accompany someone so knowledgeable and organised about their territory and with such enthusiasm for their environment. Stephen is also very good at judging the right pace, including rests in lovely spots, for his fellow walkers. Can´t recommend this trip highly enough!

We've spent 1 day exploring Malta's habitats and flora with Stephen Mifsud. I was impressed by his immense knowledge of Malta's endemic and rare plants, and enjoyed a lovely variety of landscapes and plants, as well as some historical sites. If you wish a professional tour off the beaten track, different from the classical tourism, such a tour is highly recommended.

We came to Malta to seek good Nature expierience. Our aim was to see Orchids, Nature in general and learn some of the history of Malta. We had a whole day tour with Stephen Mifsud, and he showed us some great spots for finding Orchids. He proved to be a true expert on plants of all species. Furthermore he showed us old Roman Baths and the great defenceline across Malta. If you have any interest in plants you should buy his book "Orchids of the Maltese Island". It gives you an easy and understandable introduction to the orchids, flowering periods and in which part of the Island to find them. If you want to get in details you will find them in the book all illustrated with fantastic close up photos.

If plants are your passion, this is a great way to get to know the Maltese flora. We recently went with guide Stephen Mifsud in search of orchids around the northern/central part of the island, and found ourselves with someone whose knowledge and enthusiasm for the botany of Malta is truly profound. Stephen's impressive knowledge of the plants is hugely extensive and detailed, and he proved too to be a great guide to the environs and island's history. We spent some delightful hours rambling over several sites, seeing many wonderful specimens, and also some extraordinary remains of Malta's ancient and varied past -  about all of which Stephen was able to give us illuminating information. We recommend this outing to anyone who enjoys plant spotting, being out in the countryside, and getting to know more about the island they are visiting - you will be in excellent hands!
