“Great holiday to take in Feb to get away from wet cold UK. Easy walking with a beautiful coastline, hilltop villages and lots of churches to visit. The hotel was amazing, with cottage style rooms in the gardens, delicious food and a great Spa & Pool. The local bus stopped outside and we used the local buses to walk in different parts of the island, so convenient and very good value. We did all the suggested walks, we saw some beautiful views and the route notes were all excellent.”

“I was given much misinformation when booking this tour. I am not fond of running into loose dogs, when alone on trails. I was told that no reports had been made of participants encountering dogs and that there was a leash law on the island. I was accosted by dogs on 3 separate walks in a week. Other fellow walkers had the same experience. Exodus outsourced everything to Headwaters and there seemed to be little if any communication between the companies. I was told that I would be the only one on the trip, although I was told at an earlier point that there would be 8 others. Why book a tour, if you will be totally alone? The walking tours book was useless. I was unable to complete any of the walks as indicated.”

“We’ve just returned from a week in the stunning Ta’Cenc Hotel on the cliffs of the south coast of Gozo, which was a last-minute booking and proved to be an excellent choice. We had a very comfortable room which opened out onto the poolside, in this well designed single storey complex of rooms and trulli, in its own landscape of limestone and flowers. While the weather was quite warm and sunny, there was always a breeze (or more) which stopped us using the pools, but there was also a spa with warm in/outdoor pool and all facilities – the perfect end to a day of walking. The food was superb, with buffet breakfasts and four course dinners, and the service was immaculate. The holiday is self-guided and we did most of the walks suggested by Exodus, sometimes bumping into other hotel guests on the way; the walk notes we’d been given were so detailed we never got lost. But we did miss the group activity that are such a feature of the previous Exodus group holidays we’d been on and that people benefit enormously from. The hotel had a courtesy bus into the main town Victoria, from where local buses went out to all the villages, so we either caught them or walked from the hotel. The cliff walks were amazing and the flowers a myriad of colours; the views were stunning. The limestone quarrying and the salt pans fascinated us but we were upset by the evidence everywhere of the shooting of migrating birds. Being early in the season, some of the villages were sleepy, but there are many fine churches and archaeological sites to visit, as well as the citadel and museums in Victoria. We liked the folklore museum in Gharb and it was good to hire bikes and explore the villages (though the drivers are crazy!). It would have been easy to have a day on Malta by bus and ferry but we had no time.”

“An ideal escape, even in the winter months when the sun is not so reliable.”

Malta - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Get a taste of island living and plan your next trip to Malta! It is a small Mediterranean island that lies to the south of Sicily. Although the island is relatively small, it is known for being densely populated, with a population just under 500,000.

If you're looking for some aquatic fun on your trip, you've come to the right place! There is plenty of sailing and scuba diving fun to be had! No matter what time of year you plan a holiday to Malta, snorkeling and diving expeditions are always available. The water is usually clear, making Malta a great place to learn to dive for beginners!

Tour Highlights

  • Attend the Valletta Carnival. Plan accordingly because the Valletta Carnival is a giant national costume competition taking place during February every year.
  • Go scuba diving at Sliema or Buġibba; or snorkeling at Anchor Bay to check out the beautiful aquatic wildlife.
  • Walk through the quiet alleys of Mdina at night.
  • Check out the Malta Arts Festival. What better way to get a taste of art in Malta! A variety of artistic mediums are celebrated at the festival, including music, theatre, and dance.
  • Check out Malta's rich cinematic history. It has rightfully earned its nickname as the “Los Angeles of the Mediterranean”. If you're a movie enthusiast, you'll be in heaven!
  • For the liquor enthusiast, go on wine tours to taste some of the fine wine produced in Malta or try some of the locally brewed beer during at the annual Beer Festival usually held in July.

Travel Tips

  • Don't forget sunscreen! If you're planning to hit the beach, remember that Malta is a Mediterranean island!
  • Malta is a relatively safer country however, be wary of pickpockets while visiting tourist areas.
  • 10% tipping at restaurants is the standard norm here.
  • Observe customs, don't criticize them! Malta, like any foreign country, will bring a fair amount of culture shock along with the experience. For example, bar brawls occur frequently, stay safe by not getting involved. 
  • Embrace spontaneity. Being a fairly small sized country, it is easy to go around. However, buy a local SIM card if you wish to stay connected throughout your vacation.
  • Try to plan your visit during one of Malta’s many carnivals or festivals! Not only is it a wonderful occasion, but an opportunity to get some insight as to what the locals celebrate and hold dear.
  • There are plenty of art related festivals as well as ones which celebrate Malta’s growing Jazz music scene.
