Several companies offer a large variety of sightseeing tours including bus tours, jeep tours, private tours and walking tours. It would be wise to book a guided day tour on your first day visiting Malta or Gozo as this would give you a general idea of the islands and a good source of knowledge. You can then explore the places of most interest to you on your own. The excursions usually start from a central point however many companies organise pickups from the accommodation. It is recommended to prebook these tours especially if travelling in the peak season.
Bus tours are a good way to visit the main attractions of the island. There are many tours services available that start at a particular time and go in several areas of Malta and Gozo. The buses or coaches are all equipped with air condition. These tours are not personalised and follow a pre-set itinerary however one gets a general idea of the places visited. Trips are done either for a half or full day.
Jeep tours are especially popular in Gozo. This involves a number of Maruti jeeps following the leader, usually passing from otherwise unaccessible areas. It guarantees a day of fun for the whole family and an experience to remember. Good to know that the jeeps on the island are however quite old and not very comfortable to drive. Gozo is full of open countryside so this makes it an ideal place for these jeep excursions. One can also combine a jeep tour with a boat trip with a half day dedicated on each tour.
You like to walk and keep fit? Then a walking tour is for you. Walking is the best way to visit and learn about a city or place of interest as it allows you to see a particular area in detail. Follow the leader and start a journey of discovery and great fun. Walking tours are especially recommended in autumn, winter or spring as otherwise the islands get too hot, even though one is never far away from a swimming spot to refresh after a hot day in the summer months. During these guided walks, the guide explains in detail the several attractions gone through.
