Mysteries of the Grand Harbor
The harbor at Valletta is perhaps the most picturesque in the entire Mediterranean. The harbor cruise will give you a beautiful insight into the capital of Malta, Valletta, with its enormous fortifications, as well as the hidden angles and heavenly shores of the harbor.
During the harbor cruise a guide explains the history and different parts of the harbor and the buildings around. You will see the battle sites of the island's greatest battles, such as the Great Siege of 1565 and those during World War II, while at the same time highlighting the beauty of Valletta and the Three Cities as seen from the sea.
Next it's off to the Malta Experience, which is an audio visual and multilingual presentation on the history of Malta through the ages. Discover the island and Malta's amazing history, more than 7000 years of island history brought to life through a dynamic visual experience with gripping commentary in a purpose-built auditorium.

This excursion was a great value comparted to what the Cruise line offered at a much higher price. The harbor excursion was very interesting and is the best way to see the fortress of Malta. The Malta Experience was very interesting. We were left off in town to complete our day in Malta.

You'll be hooked on the city from the moment your ship pulls into the harbor- one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL PORTS I've ever seen. There were only 8 on our tour- and we departed before the ship busses. Our driver took us to the other side of the harbor where we boarded a harbor boat for the first part of our tour. The van we rode in was unclean, papers everywhere, his (son?) child was along for the ride...but other than that, this tour was phenomenal. Our tour of the harbor lasted about 90-100 minutes and we saw so much! Then, we returned to the port area where we entered The Malta Experience- historical film about Malta over the years- VERY INTERESTING, from there we had the choice to go into town to shop or return to the ship.
