The blue grotto tour was very rushed. I think we spent more time picking up other people for the tour that the actual time spent viewing the grottos. That was a disappointment Marsaxlokk had more to offer, souvenir shopping and restaurants.

The trip was great! We loved that the guide picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off there as well. Blue Grotto and Marsalockx we’re both beautiful. It would have been nice to be at fishing village for slightly longer and we wish the shuttle air conditioning had been working

We were hoping that our boat would not be cancelled because of rain in the forecast but we were very lucky and were able to go on the blue grotto boats. It was a long steep walk down to the boats and then getting in was tricky. My husband had to change his seat to help balance
