“Excellent boat trip!”
Review of Grand Harbour Tour

Grand Harbour Tour
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

My husband and I were in Sliema in very good time for the first trip of the day with Captain Morgan tours - at 10:30. We were waiting there with another couple. Unfortunately, due to a thunderstorm earlier, 15 people had cancelled their bookings and the company do not sail with fewer than 15 people travelling. We thought we would have to wait to see how many people booked for the 11:30 tour, but the salesman got us on another boat, so we were very happy.

We had a marvellous trip, although once out of the protection of the harbour, the sea was very rough and our boat was tossed all over!

The commentary was good and we learned a lot, but do bear in mind that the part of the trip in open water may be very uncomfortable for poor sailors. I loved it, but my husband much less so! The pilots are obviously used to any sea condition, but tourists may not be! Having said that, we wouldn’t have missed the trip for anything! Do go! Fabulous views of the massive protective walls.

There are so many companies offering Grand Harbour tours and I suspect they all offer very similar value. We chose Captain Morgan tours because you get a discount with the Malta Discount Card.

The boat trip takes you right round the harbours at Sliema, Valletta and the three cities and is very enjoyable. It’s the eclectic mix of history and modern working docks that make this so fascinating.

You may also get to see the biggest cruise ships if they have docked!

Not packed. Good shade available and friendly staff.
Included was bus trip to and from my hotel.
Malta is especially beautiful from the sea.

Very interesting 60 minutes with commentary and lunch. We were lucky to have glorious weather and NO cruise ships in. Thoroughly interesting tour

A Grand Harbour tour or better still the Two Harbour tour will show you lots of Malta's History in an enjoyable trip on a boat - chose a boat which goes into all the creeks, in both harbours either side of Valletta.
