Valletta harbour is enormous and can only really be appreciated by boat. The tour includes the 3 cities as well and we found it informative and fascinating. There are several companies that do this - we went with Luzz from the ferries bus stop in Sliema

You can catch a variety of tour boats for this trip from the dock at Sliema. I paid 16 Euro PP for the harbour tour which lasted approx. 1:45hrs and was very insightful because of the guides commentary. It is by far the best way of seeing the sheer scale of the harbour. There were 2 huge cruise liners and... More

This 90 minute cruise is an ideal way to see the harbour. It manages to give a completely different view of the area than you would get from walking tours and the commentary is very good. Well worth the €15 we paid. We bought tickets on the day from the Sliema harbour side.

Visited as part of a tour group. This 5 harbour cruise was an optional extra . We felt it was well worth the cost. We sat outside on the boat , there was plenty of room. There were toilets and also a bar. The architecture was stunning , the commentary was good and the sun was shining....I had no idea... More

The two harbour cruise taking in seven creeks is an excellent way to see the three cities, many historical features, some of Valletta's infrastructure and the maritime business which makes Malta the wonderful place it is. The 90 minute tour is comfortable and the captain is highly professional. Very good value indeed.

We bought tickets for this 3 Harbour Tour from the ferry that went from Valletta to Sliema at a reduced price - always haggle ! Really enjoyed the cruise which took about 1 hour and 20 mins. Would recommend this tour as when you then walk around Valletta you see things from a different perspective.

We received a free harbour tour ticket for going on the Malta Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus but i think it normally costs about 17 euros which I would say is good value for money. We got the Malta Transport bus to Sliema where we boarded the boat and it took us in and out of every creek on... More

This is a must do on a visit to Valletta. We were on a smaller boat than some of the other tours which was far better as we could get into all the smaller creeks within the three harbours that are covered on the tour. The commentary was in English but audio guides were provided for non English speakers and... More

Great tour of Sliema Harbour and The Grand Habour and all their creeks. The larger Luzzo Tours boat wasn't due to leave for 40 minutes but as there were 6 of us, the sales guy offered us a smaller 'traditional' boat to ourselves leaving staight away. Very interesting tour with a recorded commentary. We'll worth seeing all the buildings from... More
