Bugibba Tour

The Bugibba tour departs right next to the Bus terminus and proceeds to explore the seaside area and its many restaurants, shops, bars and hotels. The train also goes into the older part of St. Paul's Bay (which Bugibba forms part of) passing by the Wignacourt Tower and an impressive chapel built by the Knights.

Rabat Tour

Malta Fun Trains would like to introduce you to their new trackless train which operates in Rabat Malta.

The Train departs from a terminus next to the Domus Romana outside Mdina.

The sightseeing train tour provides an informative commentary on the historical, cultural and architectural importance of the area whilst providing great fun for all the family.

The tour’s duration is approximately 30 minutes with an 8km route that passes close to Mdina Main Gate and Casino Notabile, entering into the heart of Rabat next to St. Paul’s Church, the catacombs of St. Agatha and St. Paul’s and thereon into Ghar Barka outside Rabat.

The train proceeds into Mtarfa viewing the Royal Navy Hospital and the Clock Tower then downhill with magnificent and panoramic views of Malta and the old capital Mdina. The train passes over the bridge close to the Old Railway Station and thereafter up the steep hill close to Mdina Bastions and through Greek Gate Tunnel before ending the tour at the terminus next to the Domus Romana.

Valletta - easy way to view the harbours

Enjoyable and easy way to view the harbours without having to walk uphill and downhill on a hot day or if your legs are tired. Also interesting bits of info. Good value for €5.

Train itself was great as we have a small child and wife on crutches and was very comfortable. We were expecting it to go inside Mdina though, however, it mostly did nearby Rabat and the outskirts of Mdina.

The 'train' - a motorised street vehicle, took us on a very short 20 minute trip around Valetta. Minimum time (e.g. 20 seconds) was allowed for the limited photo ops - plus you had to stay in the vehicle. The commentary was pre-recorded in English only and was a 'once over, lightly' spiel on the landmarks that we passed. At... More

We took this tour because we had done the one in Rabat a few days previous and loved it. This time we joined at the last minute and took an empty seat in the last car of the train. There was a large group traveling together and they never stopped talking through the entire tour. If it wasn't them, it... More

Driver sounds like he has been repeating the same cliqued patter for years - more an ego trip for him than an informative trip on the train for the passengers. Train is a bone shaker - so not a comfortable journey. Only positive is the low price of 5 euro - would have gladly paid more for better quality.

We had intended to take a little trip around to see a few sites. Unfortunately we didn't use the train due to a very rude driver. We are a family of two sisters our husbands taking our parents on holiday. We saw the train parked up and decided to take a ride, there were a few people on the front... More

Very informative and pointed out all the attractions and stopped for various photo opportunities. The gentleman running it are very friendly and took out group photo before... More
