Overview of the tour in Valletta

Hi, in this tour I show you around a must-see in Malta: Valletta, the capital city.

In the tour, I will give a historical overview & contemporary context for the buildings and sites that we see.

I love talking about the Maltese people's beliefs and cultural attitudes.

We'll also pass by some highly recommendable bars and restaurants, of which I will point out my favourites.

Please consider booking my Mdina tour, to get the full "Ben" experience of Malta.

Also, please see the "Things to Note" section further down, as I've included some important information there.

This activity includes:

  • Upper Barrakka Gardens
  • Valletta Glass
  • History
  • Culture
  • Current events
  • Restaurant recommendations

Meeting point

Upper Barrakka Gardens behind the railing overlooking the cannons! (Between all the arches)

On arrival

Please meet me INSIDE the UPPER BARRAKKA gardens.

Keep walking further in until you reach an ARCHES AREA. I'll be in the CORNER OF THE ARCHES next to a LARGE STONE URN opposite a plaque with an image of ALBERT EINSTEIN.

I will have an umbrella with a SILVER-TOP and BLACK-UNDERSIDE. Please ask for "Ben" and not the "Free Tour" :)

Things to note

Practical information:

- I accept cash, Revolut, or PayPal as forms of payment.

- If you're traveling to Valletta before the tour starts, please take into account that traffic and delays are common, so please consider leaving around an hour before the starting time. I've had many guests who were confident they could make it on time, miss a boat, or get stuck in traffic.

- Please do not book children/teens < 18 years old. They can join, but please do not book them, as they take up slots that can be used by adults.

- Children are welcome, provided they do not disturb the other guests or the tour either by running around or by being noisy. This would be very distracting and disrespectful to the other guests and to the guide.

- It's true, it's marketed as a "Free Tour," but please consider the amount of effort the guide puts in, together with the quality of information and the quality of the tour itself. A recommended donation amount is €10 per person. There are those who give more, which is VERY much appreciated and helps with the sustainability of the tour. Of course, the amount is totally up to you to decide.

- Provided there are no sudden obstacles implemented by the local community, the tour is fully wheelchair accessible.

- Unfortunately, the ground, road, and walkways that we use in the tour can be slippery, uneven, and have holes and/or obstacles. Please watch your steps during the tour.

- Also, unfortunately, cars in Malta might use the same road as we do, and as you might have noticed, they drive quite fast in areas where people walk. So please take note of this and be aware.

Liability exclusion: By booking and/or participating in the tour, the participants agree, understand, and acknowledge that the tour leader/operator will not be held liable for any damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, or consequential), injuries (including personal injury), loss, accident, delay or inconvenience incurred to or by the persons participating in the tour and/or their property. The persons participating in the tour further agree to release the tour guide (and tour operator) from any liability, claims, or actions arising from or related to the participation in the tour.

Free Cancellation

You are free to cancel a booking anytime. We kindly remind you to cancel bookings you cannot arrive for. Being reported as absent decreases your customer level points and the benefits you can enjoy.
