We took the six hour personal tour with Joe, our driver for the day. Because he's local, we got to see all the famous and popular attraction but without the hassle of tourist crowds. Jim was helpful in suggestion the best route, timings and the day was run at a really relaxing pace. Perfect way to see Gozo off the beaten track. No worry about driving, parking or getting lost. We were met as we got off the ferry and delivered back with 15mins to departure time. Perfect day. Thanks Jim.

the tour took us on little Suzukis around the island of Gozo and we got to see the main sites of interest. my driver and guide, Cil, was fantastic.

Good guide but she should know more about Malta. Didn’t know where Malta gets its power (electricity) from.

Ronald is een super vriendelijke man. Hele eiland rond gecrosst en veel gezien en gehoord. Aanrader!

Great service, on time, you really get a nice day for a small price.
