Our group of 4 women had the greatest time on the hop on hop off bus. We were able to visit the sites on our time, with longer stay on the ones we enjoyed more. Worth the price for one day in Malta.

Departure point just à few yards from where the ship docked. Not easy to find the right bus... many different itinaries thus many buses and a lot of people at the departure point. Tour very worthwhile...Valletta is a very attractive City.

A fascinating island which is well worth a visit. However, be prepared for the fact that the clockwise bus route meant that the overall time was three hours.

By coincidence, we got on the northern tour first. It’s a 3 hr tour and included the walled city of Mdina. We hopped off and explored the old city. Had some lunch and lined up for the next bus pick up. Got back to the port to miss the last southern tour by just 5 mins. A great disappointment, but no one to blame but us. We explored the nearby city. Just needed an extra day.
