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

Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra!!

Malta is so lucky to some of the oldest buildings in the world. Older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids.

Built by Neolithic (New-StoneAge) culture that seemed peaceful. These temples have only been found in Malta and Gozo, even though the temple-builders were surely in contact with Sicily and other Italian islands.

The theory is that Malta & Gozo were "sacred" islands. Places were travellers came from afar to worship. (Malta & Gozo is full of these temples)

Besides the temples there are great scenic views of the Maltese countryside and the sea. This spot is very close to the Blue Grotto, which you can visit by walking there afterwards :)

This tour was of an excellent standard. Ben was engaging and funny, sharing fascinating information with great style and flair. I particularly appreciated that he reminded us throughout that historians interpretations about the "temples" were just that - an interpretation! I like that he encouraged the tour group to considered our own thoughts on what these sites represent, rather than giving us one interpretation as a certain truth. Brilliant tour!

Ben is the best guide I got to know so far. He is very enthusiastic and deeply cares about what he does and this translates in his tours, which were really fun, informative and very engaging for me! Definitely had a good time, thank you Ben!

Ben was very informative, and delivered all the information in an interesting and amusing way. He appeared to have researched all the current knowledge but was open to ideas and theories. All in all it was a good day.
