Day 2: Explore La Valletta
This morning we will head out to explore Valletta, Malta’s capital city which is entirely under UNESCO World Heritage protection. We will enjoy a walking tour and visit all the main attractions while we learn the history of the Maltese knights who built this incredible walled city. Our expert guide will tell the kinds of stories that keep your kids engaged and interested. There will be a quiz and small prizes later today! We will marvel at the view from the Upper Barrakka Garden, visit St. John Co-Cathedral, and admire the Palace and Armory of the Knights of St. John, often called the Maltese Knights. Our Valletta exploration will end with an exciting horse carriage ride along its mighty walls with stunning views of the Grand Harbor. (B)

Day 3: A Cruise to Comino and a Swim in the Blue Lagoon
We will spend our day cruising around the island of Comino and stopping for a few hours to swim in the shimmering Blue Lagoon. Lunch will be served on board. Be sure to have your swimming gear, sunblock, sunglasses and hats as the Maltese sun is strong! (B,L)

Day 4: Marsaxlokk | Blue Grotto | Mdina
This morning we will head south to visit Marsaxlokk, an old fishing village with the most colorful boats in the world, called Luzzu, left by the Phoenicians in ancient times. The kids will enjoy the story of why these boats have eyes! After a walk and some free time to grab a bite, we will linger a bit to see the famous and fabulous Blue Grotto. Our first view is from above, and then a boat ride will be available (weather permitting) to sail inside this magical blue cave to see glowing sea life and fascinating natural formations. Later, we will visit a glassblowing factory in Mdina, the ancient capital often called the Silent City. After witnessing the amazing artistic glass work, we’ll walk around the cobbled streets, and have ice cream in a parlor within the city walls with a panoramic view of the surroundings. Return to your hotel in the afternoon. (B)

Day 5: Gozo Jeep Safari
This morning after breakfast we head out for a Jeep safari adventure on the island of Gozo. We will arrive at Malta’s north port and board a ferry to this wonderful island, which is less developed, greener, and more peaceful than Malta. This exciting Jeep safari explores unique places and natural wonders and also includes a visit to the prehistoric Ggantija Temples, the capital city Victoria, the Ta’ Pinu Basilica, and much more while we enjoy the ride in our modern Jeep vehicles. It will be a day filled with adventures! There will be also an exciting boat ride through a narrow, stone passage and a wonderful lunch in a local restaurant. We will return to our hotel in the late afternoon. (B,L)

Day 6: Popeye Village and Sandy Beaches
This morning we embark on another adventure. Our first stop is at the Popeye Village, an original movie set transformed into a family-friendly amusement park. We will explore the wooden houses where Popeye had his escapades and enjoy the beach at the fun Aqua Park. Later on, we will transfer to Mellieha Bay for a few hours of beach time before returning to our hotel. (B)

Day 7: Free Day
Malta offers many interesting activities for families and today is the day to enjoy this marvelous island at your own pace. Go see the dolphin show, take a harbor cruise, enjoy the beach, or explore the little towns and fishing villages on the island. Your tour manager will help you find the best place to spend your last day. This evening we will gather one last time for a lovely Maltese night.
