The tour takes you around all the little inlets and creeks both sides of Valletta. If windy, it does get a little choppy as you go round the point at Fort St. Elmo, but once back into the harbour it settles down again. Great to...More

It was a good tour around the great harbour where you can see the cities from the water. The view is just marvellous and impressive because it becomes obvious from the perspective the numbers of fortifications that were built to protect the island

I went on the hop on hop off bus tour for the south of the island and the boat trip was included. Very good indeed and very informative on the history of the grand harbour and the other inlets.

We struggled to find much useful information about small boat tours of the Grand Harbour despite seeing them on travel programmes about Valletta. It seems that the two places to board for the motorised boat tours are Vittoriosa and Valletta at the waterfront just below...More

Hi Norman, What company did you do your Harbour Cruise with? We are on a cruiseship & only in Malta for 1 day. Thought we would do the Hop On Hop Off Tour combined with a harbour cruise. They don't offer free harbour cruises any more so just wondering what company you would recommend. Many thanks, Kerry
