Hi, my name is Ben. I previously used to work in IT, but now I'm a full-time Tourist Guide! I'm a licensed professional tourist guide and I have guided thousands of people all around Malta. I'm also 100% Maltese, born & raised here. I love meeting new people and showing them around my country of Malta. I usually adapt to the audience, but I usually intersperse history, current Maltese culture, and what the Maltese people think & feel, together with recommendations for places to eat & drink (usually my favourite spots ;) ).

Tour description

Mdina is another must-see in Malta. In this tour we combine Mdina with Rabat too.

I take you through the town of Mdina, I'll explain the history, culture, and various things that you see in Mdina.

I will also give recommendations for places to eat throughout the tour.

We end the tour in Rabat, where there are even more places to enjoy food & drink.

After that there are many things to see in Rabat such as the Catacombs or St Paul's Cave. Or you could even visit other parts of Malta such as Dingli Cliffs or Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra (stone-age temples).

Please consider booking by Valletta tour: https://www.guruwalk.com/walks/45033-ben-s-valletta-free-walking-tour

Practical information:

- I accept cash, Revolut, or PayPal as forms of payment.

- If you're travelling to Mdina before the tour starts please take into account that traffic and delays are common, so please consider leaving around an hour before the starting time. I've had many guests who were confident they could make it on time miss a bus, or get stuck in traffic.

- Please do not book children/teens < 18 years old. They can join, but please do not book them, as they take up slots that can be used by adults.

- Children are welcome provided they do not disturb the other guests or the tour. Either by running around or by being noisy. This would be very distracting and disrespectful to the other guests and to the guide.

- It's true, it's marketed as a "Free Tour" but please consider the amount of effort the guide puts in, together with the quality of information, and the quality of the tour itself. A recommended donation amount is €10 per person. There are those who give more, which is VERY much appreciated and helps with the sustainability of the tour. Of course the amount is totally up to you to decide.

- Provided there are no sudden obstacles implemented by the local community, the tour is fully wheelchair accessible.

- Unfortunately the ground, road, walkways that we use in the tour can be slippery, uneven, have holes and/or obstacles. Please watch your step during the tour. 

- Also unfortunately, cars in Malta might use the same road as we do, and as you might have noticed they drive quite fast in areas where people walk. So please take note of this and be aware.

Liability exclusion: By booking and/or participating in the tour, the participants agree, understand and acknowledge that the tour leader/operator will not be held liable for any damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental or consequential), injuries (including personal injury), loss, accident, delay or inconvenience incurred  to or by the persons participating in the tour and/or their property. The persons participating in the tour further agree to release the tour guide (and tour operator) from any liability, claims or actions arising from or related to the participation in the tour.

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

I’ve had the pleasure to travel just over 60 countries and been fortunate enough to are numerous walking tours in these different countries but I can’t recall ever being guided by a more knowledgable, entertaining and likeable guide. Ben did an amazing job making historical facts and events relevant to everyone on the tour. So impressive was his tours, my wife and ended up taking 3 of the tours offered by Ben during our visit to Malta. What a great way to explore Malta, be entertained and learn a great deal. Thanks so much Ben! Nat and Mark (Toronto, Canada)
