This was certainly my most beautiful trip on Gozo. All guides are super friendly and honestly try to give you a nice experience. The transfer from the hotel was more than on time and worked wonderfully. Then you hop on open jeeps and off you go. All the important sights around the island are controlled. Everywhere there is enough time to take a great photo. But the driver also stops on the journey if you want to take a picture of something from the car. Xewkija, Xlendi, a church, the Cave of Calypso, the Inland Sea, the salt pans, the citadel, of course the temple complex of Ggantija, you can see most of the island's sights in one day. Lunch at a small restaurant outside of Victoria is perfectly adequate for such a day. I then booked the boat tour around the islands. You can do both in one day. We recommend! Just great!

Well organized excursion. Very fair price for the type of excursion. Despite moving the hotel at the last minute due to overbooking, after having requested the transfer for picking, they replied immediately (despite being Easter) and satisfied us with everything. Beautiful experience, I will definitely book again with this tour operator !!!

All went well from the start, picked up almost on time, our guide was amazing, so friendly and explained a lot about Gozo. Which is a lovely island, we visited the Citadel, totally awesome, worth the climb. Lunch was ok. Really enjoyed the walk through the old city to get our bus, we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

We booked the tour and were not disappointed. Our tour guide Murad was outstanding and provided a wealth of information throughout the tour. Lovely lunch by the sea and the chance for a swim at Camino on the ferry retuning to Malta.

The excursion was well organized. The food was mediocre. The tour guide was perfect.
