The tour itself ok, handling bad

... half an hour before departure we received the email that the tour will be postponed by an hour. We were already on the way to the departure point. The place of departure is shown in the wrong place on the route description. If we hadn't already looked during the day, the tour would have started without us. Then a quarter hour break was announced. The driver came back after an hour. Some participants knew that, others didn't. Last but not least, the tour was about an hour shorter than announced.

Sitting up high, wind on our faces, Beautifully lit spaces was a wonderful thing!!!! However, we were the last pick up and had to sit inside bottom for the first half of the trip… so ask about pickup locations! Might want to eCab to a closer starting point????

The tour was very good because the night is not so hot and everything looks better than during the day. Mdina was fantastic. The fact that there were headphones with a suitable translation is a big plus.

Very nice road trip. Mdina is beautiful, a great walk at night time. I recommend!

It was great! Good communication! We recommend it!
