This was a good introduction to food from Valletta. Our guide, Christian, was very knowledgeable and nice. We tasted a wide range of snacks and drinks, and met a number of vendors and shopkeepers. He gave us recommendations for restaurants and shopping, which were very helpful. A good time!

Chris is an excellent and knowledgeable host. We tasted and learnt about many different Maltese foods along with their provenance. Additionally Chris took us to many different historical locations explaining each in turn.

We visited cafes off the tourist route frequented by locals. Chris and everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

We would highly recommend this tour - thank you Chris.

Food tour was a great experience and one I would definitely do again!!!
Excellent guide, who is very knowledgeable, warm and friendly. He pulled out all the stops to make it a great experience. From the different places we stopped at so he could tell us the history behind the places, to the different food, drinks and treats along the way.
The experience was topped up with a nice stop at a restaurant to experience more Maltese cuisine.
Thanks Chris, will definitely contact you when we come back to Malta.
Highly recommended tour.
