While we love to travel, all the planning and driving can be stressful at times. My husband and I hired Joan to do a three day private guided tour of Malta and it was absolutely amazing. Joan listens to what your areas of interest are, plans it all out and gets you smoothly from Point A to Point B with a minimum of fuss. She's been doing this for decades so knows everybody and can adjust a schedule easily to make allowances for weather or changes in opening hours due to COVID. We covered the temple culture, the Knights of Malta, delicious local dishes, modern day history and more. Joan, and her husband Chris are incredibly well informed and a pleasure to talk with. They were also very helpful in providing suggestions of places to go and things to do once our tour was finished. Malta has so much to offer that having an expert show you around is more than worth it!

A friend and I went on a day tour with Joan in mid September 2020. We were on a budget and unsure whether we should undertake any tours. However, the day spent exploring Valletta, Mdina and Birgu were completely worth every penny. Joan is clearly extremely knowledgable of the history of the island and excellent at bringing it to life. She also seems to know everyone that we pass, be it random pedestrians or shop keepers, which makes the tour a more intimate experience. There were no pushy sales tactics from the beginning, nor did she try and get us to shop anywhere for a commission. Truly professional, knowledgable and amiable lady. Thanks

I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed the full day tours of Malta and Gozo you arranged with guide Stephen Carunana who stood in for you while you were in Africa. He was perfect, a true professional with a tremendous wealth of knowledge which he enthusiasticly shared with us. He was attentive, kind, and creative. It was amazing how close we became with him in just two short days. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you again for making Malta a high point of our trip.

Joan's love and knowledge about all-things-Malta, made us enthusiastic students of this country's fascinating history and culture! Joan Sheridan is, we are convinced, THE go-to person when in Malta. And her driver was excellent. We would love to return and learn more about its history--especially regarding the Knights of Malta. One of our favorite destinations? St. John's Co-Cathedral. Absolutely jaw-dropping. And her knowledge along with her relationship with the people who are the stewards of the church is invaluable. Love Caravaggio? You must tour with Joan to see and fully appreciate his final great work of art--and learn about his tragic demise. We--my teenage children, husband, sister-in-law, and I had an amazing time with Joan touring much of Malta. And, she knows where to eat. You won't be disappointed.

On a family trip to Malta over the New Years Holidays, Joan graciously arranged to take my wife and two teenage boys on a whirlwind one day tour of the area in and around Valetta, Mdina, and Birgu. We were able to get a taste of Archaic, Roman, 15th-17th Century and modern Malta. Joan even threw in some "Game of Thrones" stops along the way to keep us entertained. Although we already had preexisting tickets and times for The Hypogeum of Ħal Saflieni, Joan guided us to and from this spot, incorporating it within our larger day-trip. Mdina, in particular, was calm and we were glad to have had Joan there to introduce us to the Mayor and Vice Mayor, while also providing a detailed account of the city and its significance to the Maltese culture. The short trip to Mdina definitely gave us the desire to go back and spend a week! We visited the Roman Catacombs, where were both expansive and the highlight for the kids. Lots of cool nooks and crannies to roam around underground with and the site itself was expansive. Joan knew exactly where to take us and at what time to avoid the crowds. We finished our day with a drop-off in Valetta to continue to explore on our own. Joan and her driver were amazing and we will definitely be contacting her again when we return in the near future!

Thank you for your lovely comments. I don't think I have ever conducted a tour which included so many eras and themes! But we made it work and I am so pleased you all enjoyed it. I look forward to accompanying you again in the near future so we can continue where we left off!
