We had 2 super days seeing many wonderful highlights of Malta and Gozo, guided by Lorraine Vassallo and driven expertly in comfortable and spacious vehicles by Robbie (Malta) and Margaret (Gozo).

We really appreciated Lorraine’s wealth of experience and expert knowledge about all aspects of the 2 islands. She was flexible and calmly adapted the timings to our specific wishes on the day. We were able to see far more of the islands in those 2 days than we would have done using a hire car or group bus tour, and in a much more relaxed manner. Clive Cortis, the manager of the company, was also very helpful in responding so promptly to my initial email enquiring about the tours. We would highly recommend this company and would consider using it again if we come back to Malta in the future.

I got in touch with Clive a few days before planning our final trip details to Malta. He was prompt and came up with two very interesting itineraries, of which we decided to do one. It was a full-day tour that combined the highlights of Valletta and then moving on to other sites such as Marsaxlokk, the Blue Grotto, Hagar Qim temple and Mdina. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and never felt bored, tired or rushed.
A lot of this had to do with our guide Peter Vella. He was a storehouse of knowledge with varied experiences and a bundle of energy. He changed the running order of the day given his experience with his group from the previous day who had traffic issues in Valletta. Really considerate and very practical.
Peter knows his Malta, but is also able to weave his knowledge into beautiful storytelling. He also welcomes questions and engages with his clients making the visits more fulfilling.
Luca was our driver for the day and he had a spotlessly clean van to drive us around. He also made sure that he always found a convenient parking spot close to the many spots that we visited, something that couldn't always be guaranteed.
All in all, my wife and I had a wonderful day made better by our guide Peter. Thanks.

Another fantastic and insightful tour of Malta with Clive! This was the second time he has shown us around the island during Mediterranean cruises, and his ability to find new locations and experiences for us was outstanding. Very highly recommended!

Our primary purpose to visit Malta was to pay our respects at the grave of our Uncle who perished near Luqa on the night of 3 November 1940 when his Wellington Bomber failed to gain altitude and crashed into a nearby ravine at Tal-Handaq. Malta Private Guide (Clive and Victoria, and their military expert Vince DeBono) made all the difference to what might have been a good visit into a truly memorable experience. They understand what we wanted to do and see, and they delivered this, and more. They listened and they provided constructive suggestions given our objectives and available time. Astonishingly, they were also able to reasonably pinpoint the crash site and then the small shelter where our Uncle passed away some 80 years ago. Beyond the military sites we visited, Victoria was a fountain of knowledge, expertise and personality guiding us at some of the other rich history and historical sites that Malta offers. Victoria is a bundle of positive energy, enthusiasm and professionalism that is all things Malta. We are eternally grateful to MPG for exceeding our expectations, and for delivering excellence in knowledge, kindness and hospitality. We will never forget our visit and what they did to make it great. We were fulfilling a promise to our late Mother to make this visit and I'm sure she's looking down and smiling. Thank you to the amazing Clive, Victoria, Vince and their driver Alex. We left a piece of our hearts on this beautiful island yet gained new friends along the way. We're blessed.

I set up two separate day trips – one day around the island of Malta and the other to the island of Gozo - with Malta Private Guide and both day trips were amazing. I did both tours with Clive and he is truly an excellent guide: he is both extremely knowledgeable about the history, the architecture, etc. and is a very friendly guide with a great sense of humor. I learned so much about Malta during the tours and both days were paced just right so I could see a lot of the sites while still enjoying time for delicious lunches and afternoon coffees. I have been very fortunate to travel a lot and often find local guides for tours and my experience with Clive and Malta Private Guide was by far one of the very best. I would wholeheartedly recommend booking your Malta tours with Malta Private Guide and personally I can’t wait to return to Malta and book some additional tours with Clive & Malta Private Guide.

It was our first time in Malta - and we choose the our Sunday morning (half day tour) with Victoria . It was the south of Malta tour: Hagar Qim temple, blue grotto of which Victoria told us what to do and was outstanding, the fishing village plus Victoria offered to drop us off at a different location than our pick up.: the 3 cities so we can tour the grand Harbur.
What I liked was she was informative, interesting, real life facts, very personable...was almost like a friend that was showing you around their home town.
The transportation was clean, cool with A/C on a hot day. She was communicating during the ride ...and you can tell Victoria has a passion for her job . All in all our hapf day with Victoria was a great decision and very pleased with the Malta private guide tour.

Clive & Victoria are simply the best of the best. They offer incomparable quality service - delivered with skill, good humour and vast knowledge of Malta. Our trip was part pilgrimage and part vacation and they made our memorable trip even better. We saw, learned and enjoyed things that would simply have been impossible without their help and guidance. I will be in their debt forever for the gift of their time. Malta has become my favourite destination in large part because of how Clive & Victoria made us feel welcome.

We had an amazing tour around Malta with Vicky. The whole experience with Malta Private guides was top-notched from the moment I emailed to ask initial questions up through the day. Clive was extremely responsive prior to the tour. Vicky did an excellent job adjusting on the fly to make sure that our day was perfect. All 3 of us enjoyed our day. Vicky made the tour well rounded for our diverse group. We only had one day in Malta and we felt like we saw a lot without being rushed. 100% recommend.

We did a tour with Clive and he was great and totally accommodating. We added a few more into our group and he totally rolled with it. He kept us entertained and gave us a ton of great information and history but still kept us engaged. It’s that fine balance with too much info and not enough that is the difference between an ok and great guide. He read us well and knew when we had enough and needed a moment without him filling the air or when it was time to move onto the next thing. He walked us through Medina, Vittoriosa and Marsaxlokk fishing village. We had a great day and love his approach and sense of humor.

We were on a cruise stopover in Malta and arranged a private tour for 5 adults. Our guide, Peter, was excellent!! He was professional, courteous, and knew everything about the history of Malta and the sights we were visiting. I would not hesitate to use this company again!
