I would not advise anyone to take this excursion. Firstly, Carnival was late to the shore, and because of that, our tour guide treated us the entire day like it was our group's fault we were late. She got into altercations with a few of the guests due to very insensitive, smart things she would say. I think she forgot that WE were paying HER for the excursion and we weren't there to do her bidding. She had a lot of pride for her country, and didn't allow anyone to ask her questions. She just talked, talked and talked. For those in the group with walking challenges (Like my mother),she walked way too fast. One couple actually opted to take a cab back to the ship after the first stop because her pace was not enjoyable. She wanted to get through everything on the tour, but most of us were checked out after an hour or two. Additionally, we had an 8.5 hour day and no breaks for bathroom or food! We were told that we were going to have "lunch". We didn't get that until 1pm and it was really only snacks. At least we got unlimited wine (although we had to get up and serve ourselves). Do yourself a favor when you go to Malta and don't take this excursion. Next time, I could say on the ship and be happy.
