Way too many people on this tour. There were 48 people with one tour guide and no headphones. The city was interesting and the tour guide was really good, but there were so many people it was impossible to have a good experience.

Mdina, Rabat and Trolley Train.
Sail Date: October 2018
Mdina, Rabat and Trolley Train. Pleasant morning prior to disembarkation. Didn't like the Trolley Train, very uncomfortable and bumpy, was glad to get off! Mdina is very nice, good to stroll around.

We did not book with RCC. We took a hop-on hop-off tour. BEWARE, there are two competing companies with different routes. Also, the lack of cleanliness, lack of air conditioning and lack of audio could be deterrents for some. The heat that day was beyond belief and with more than one cruise ship in town the hop on when you want was not at all easy. We were there approx. 9 am and there were delivery trucks constantly in the small narrow cobble stone roads making it a bit dangerous for pedestrians. Read Less

Wasn't our favorite excursion or port. Took the Mdina, Rabat and Dinghlee cliffs tour. The cliffs are silly - the cities are impressive but literally 15 minutes was all we had to shop or walk on our own.
