Valletta - excursions and day trips

Whether you want to spend a day on the water or a day exploring the history of the island, there are many day trips from Valletta. You can visit Malta's UNESCO-listed sites and explore the medieval streets of its capital city. There are also some wonderful seaside destinations that are worth visiting.

If you have the time, it's a good idea to take a horse and buggy ride around the town. The ride will give you a better overview of Valletta's historic sights. For an added experience, book a private tour guide. These guides will provide you with rich insights into the city. You can also hire a driver for the day.

One of the best day trips from Valletta is to Mdina. This enchanting medieval city is full of relics and attractions. You'll find several historical sites here, including St. Mary Magdalene Chapel, which has beautiful views of the coastline. The cathedral itself is over 3,000 years old and houses a collection of frescoes and oil paintings. The aristocratic Naxxar palace is another interesting site to see.

If you're looking for a more relaxed day trip, consider visiting the small village of Dingli. This picturesque village has a population of 3,700 and boasts long terrace fields and lush woodland. The area is great for walking and it's also close to the ruins of Verdala Palace. You can easily get to Dingli from Valletta by bus or taxi.


If you're interested in history, you can explore the medieval fortified town of Cospicua. This is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the capital. You'll be able to enjoy a scenic vista of the Three Cities and Valletta's harbor. You can also visit the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, which is an underground burial ground dating back to Neolithic times. The tour takes about an hour and includes an audio guide.

Another popular day trip from Valletta is to visit Gozo. The island of Gozo is more secluded and verdant than Malta. You'll be able to take a ferry from Valletta's harbor to Gozo in about 30 minutes. You can then explore the Blue Lagoon, a large sheltered inlet with beautiful crystal clear waters. If you're looking for something more adventurous, try snorkeling or diving. You can find package tours to Gozo and Comino, which are available at different prices.


There are many day trips from Valletta, but a tour guide is essential for exploring the island. There are a number of options available, such as an excursion to Mellieha, which has incredible historical sites. You can also arrange a horse and buggy ride to the interior of the town. There are several enchanting country villages, where you can enjoy the traditional Maltese lifestyle.

A trip to Malta will be a memorable experience for anyone. It's a small island, so you can explore the countryside in less than an hour. You can also take a longer trip to Italy or Spain. There's even a tall ship sailing expedition, which starts in Valletta and visits the islands of Corsica and Elba.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
