The tour was nice, the voice was very pleasant and I liked the background soundtrack, it was easy to use and set up. Some tracks were very long for very small things, so you stood there for quite a bit without being able to see much. What I found a bit sad was the fact that the selection of sights sometimes seemed a bit random. The major sights like the Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel or the Triton fountain and some interesting buildings on the way were left out (where I would have been interested on some details) while some very minor and small attractions (like a bakery) were featured quite in depth. Also to make it even more special some authentic background music in between the stops would have been even nicer.

The starting point was a bit far from our initial arrival point in Valetta (by ferry from Sliema), but this was a very interesting was of visiting the city. This was the first time I went on a self guided tour with riddles and puzzles along the way and I’ll try to do it this way again in other cities I’ll visit. I recommend it if you want an interesting way to explore.

We really enjoyed the self-guided tour. You saw a lot of Valletta and solved small puzzles. So it wasn't "just" a sightseeing tour. You set the pace yourself, and you can also make additional stops. Tip: the first 2/3 stations are outside the city wall and can easily be covered with an e-scooter. To recommend :)

Professionally spoken, interesting and varied sights, beautiful route through the city. Sometimes you stood at the back of a building, but that wasn't a problem at all. I would recommend the tour anytime.

Very nice route around Valletta and some of the most important attractions. Nice and challenging puzzles!!!
