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

The 3 cities consists of Birgu (aka Vittoriosa), Isla (aka Senglea), and Bormla (aka Cospicua). All 3 cities tours that I know of (including this one) focus heavily on Birgu (Vittoriosa). Why? Birgu is by far the oldest and most important of the 3. Besides that, walking through all the 3 cities will take much longer, around 4 hours. Plus, I assure you, Birgu has a lot to offer and show! 

While Mdina was the old capital of Malta, Birgu was the old "port city" of Malta. It was here that the knights of St John settled in 1530 (as there was no Valletta at that time). 

When the knights built Valletta, they abandoned Birgu, and made place for a new inhabitant: the Inquisitor! So yes, we will talk about the inquisitor and his lovely tales.

Birgu produces an extraordinary amount of famous people and we will discuss them too.

Birgu is very worth visiting in my opinion. I usually tell guests to visit: Valletta, Mdina, Birgu (3 cities), and the temples.

Please note, there are quite a few stairs in this tour.

    I will in to the left of the Freedom Monument (a large mound with cacti, trees, bushes, and statues), which in turn will be in front of the church of St Lawrence. If facing the Freedom Monument with the church behind it, I will be to the left, next to the gate, but under the shade with the benches.
