Owner description: "Surprising, interesting and unexpected" Kate T , TripAdvisor traveller, Oct 2, 2018 Do you want to discover Malta’s best-kept SECRETS? And Listen to the HIDDEN tales your really dying to hear about during our GUIDED TOURS about the Corsairs of Malta in whilst you're in Valletta? Are you curious to learn which buildings in Valletta STILL bear witness to these forgotten tales of survival, piracy, brutality, passion, pleasures of the flesh, tales of love gone terribly wrong, exotic delicacies and much more...? If so this Malta tour is for you. Join our Corsair Guide "Xandru" and peep into the colorful, promiscuous and yet violent lives of the feared Corsairs of Malta and the times they lived in! Valletta's History real history isn't all about Knights in shining armour! So If you're looking for something historically different, thrilling and fun to “treasure” and talk about, during your stay Malta... we would be thrilled to welcome you aboard our Valletta guided tour! :)

Anybody interested in Malta's history this is a definite MUST DO! It tackles a part of the History of the Knights that one does not normally hear about - all the really interesting bits! The tour guide is obviously passionate about his island and its history thus making for a more interesting and animated (in the true sense of the word) tour. It takes you around a good deal of Valletta and you come away wanting more. Very highly recommended - it is a tour with a difference.

Hey Bunty, sooo glad we managed to shed more light on the other side of the coin :) ...the more interesting parts and bits as you have so rightly mentioned. Who would have thought such a little island was home to some of the fiercest naval warriors and cutthroat in the whole Mediterranean :) Thanks again . All the best

Stumbled upon this tour while visiting Valletta recently, it's about Malta's corsairing times and what a TOUR this turned out to be!! Our guide, was very informative and kept us on our toes, always wanting for more. Learned really interesting things about one of Malta's most overlooked times in history and loved how all this information was passed on to us by our charismatic corsair... errr sorry meant guide!! ;-) Well done and keep up the good work, drink some rum on us!! ;-)

Ohh yes, our Corsair guide has sworn upon his honour to be on his best behaviour :) at least must of the time... but definitely much more than the other Maltese Corsairs that formed part of our stories :) A+++ wowww thanks soo much, Chris will be thrilled with this as am I. Hope to see you again and remember to recount our stories to your students about how badass the Maltese were (or at least, to those students over 16 ) :)
