What a great day. If you want to feel an authenticity experience of MALTA. We got to meet local business owners from a cheese farmer, olive maker and wine maker. We visited a local pub and had authentic Maltese food. What a treat This tour was the highlight of our trip. It’s so nice to have a guided tour to explain the things you’re seeing and tasting A++

It was quite unique experience not only for our children (7 and 4), but for us as well. Having an individual excursion for the whole day, we could do lots of things. We’ve gathered strawberries in the field, seen the man baking bread, visited sheep farm, and after all we’ve come to the olive grove where we had snacks. Kids loved it because they could see lots of animals, and it was interesting to listen to all the Chris’ explanations and stories during the tour. Highly recommend to families with kids!

Not enough can be said about what Christian put together for this tour. It was personal, fun, and wonderfully insightful. The team of artisans that his company has put together made for a truly unique and memorable experience.

When it comes to wines, I simply know what I like and what I do not like. Seeing the meticulous process was absolutely fascinating to me. It helped that Mark was the one who walked me through it. When scheduling this, make sure you get Mark on the list. He is a cool guy who carries on a very fun conversation. Plus, you get to enjoy some of his wine which is excellent. Be sure to try his amber wine. It made me a believer.

Followed up by the bakery and lunch at an olive grove, this day was an absolute blast. Christian’s guidance made it even better. When scheduling the tour, talk with Christian often. He is very responsive and flexible with scheduling. He will also pick you up from wherever you are staying. The length of the day depends on what you schedule. He picked us up at 1000 and we were back by 1600 just in time to watch France v Croatia.

If you have any time in Malta, do this tour.

The food was delectable, the wine so unique and tasty, and the people were so friendly. We visited a bakery in Rabat, Mar Casar winery, Tal-Pespus Sheep Farm, and the Tan-Nixxiegha Olive Grove. Can’t recommend this tour highly enough!!!!!

Thanks Blake.... also for mentioning some of the members that you visited by name. Guests like yourself contribute greatly to the local rural communities in more ways than one would think!

we did a food and wine tour in May 2018 i will start off by saying this was a wonderful tour, it gave great insight into maltese culture and food history and tradition. instead of listing all the things we did, as there were about 5 stops throughout the day, i just want you to know christian, the guy in charge is great, and i believe trying to do great things for maltese food by encouraging farmers and food creators to use to use traditional methods. the places we stopped had excellent products and christian who was also our guide had insights into maltese culture that we never would have gotten to learn about without this tour. i encourage you to try it if you are at all interested in food, traditions, or culture.
