    Your Guided Group Holiday To Malta 

    Join us and discover Malta’s magical blend of culture, cuisine, language and landscape on this 7-night group holiday. With its stunning coastline and sunny climate, it’s no wonder Malta is a favourite destination for holidaymakers. But beyond beautiful beaches, Malta’s colourful history and influences from its Mediterranean neighbours have resulted in a treasure trove of historic sites. We’ll explore all of these and more with excursions to the fascinating capital Valletta, medieval Mdina, the Three Cities and the nearby island of Gozo. On guided day trips, we’ll marvel at the beautiful ‘Inland Sea’ at Dwejra, the Citadel in Victoria and the prehistoric Ggantija Temples. You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax beside the crystal blue waters, sample local delicacies or discover more of what interests you with recommendations from your guide.
