Excursions

Only in season


 


Saturday Fireworks : Experience a spectacular Maltese tradition, when every weekend we take you to a local village for the best Eve of the Festa Fireworks Display on the Island.  Once there, a visit to the parish church, splendidly decorated to fit the occasion is a must and again our guide will provide you with background information.  Then relax in the unique Festa atmosphere with a leisurely stroll around the village streets, while the music of the marching village Brass Band fills the air.
Night Tour & Fireworks : Tour commences with a comfortable drive through Ta' Xbiex and Msida yacht Marina onto the floodlit City of Valletta.  Drive around the periphery of Valletta, stopping to view Fort Manuel and Sliema Seafront across Marsamxetto Harbour; you will have time to climb up the stairs on the Grand Harbour side to the Bell Tower which was inaugurated by H.M. Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate for their gallantry during World War II.

From Valletta we proceed to Vittoriosa, the first City built by the Knights, where we stop near the Freedom Monument and the first famous Church of St. Lawrence which was the first conventual Church of the Order.  We than drive to one of the Local Villages where we take this unique opportunity to mingle with the locals as they celebrate their Village Festivities with an abundance of ground and aerial fireworks displays.  The night skies become alight with spectacular colours of gold and silver rain, fountains of rockets decorate the night, absolutely, breathtaking !!!!!

Village Festa : Coach trip to one of Malta's villages to watch aerial fireworks, band marches, decorated streets, nougat stalls and the traditional religious procession.  We will then finish by a guided tour to the Village Parish Church at its best in all its festa splendour.
Horse Races : Traditional trip to Marsa Race Course to watch the popular trotting races.  Ask the locals for the favourities and try your luck on the tote.  A normal meeting consists of nine or ten races.
