Tour Overview

This tour is ideal for anyone who wishes to have a taste of Gozo in one day and explore the main highlights of the island.

 

 

Itinerary and Duration

 

  • Sanap Cliffs & Kantra Valley – Xlendi (30 mins)  

The tour will start off with a scenic drive through Munxar on the way to Xlendi where you will stop for some time to savour the view and also for some photos. Here you can admire the cliffs. Then we head over to the Kantra Valley where you can get off for a small walk and check out the tower. Further down you can also have a walk along the cliffs in Xlendi.

 

  • The Citadel – Victoria (1.5 hours)

A UNESCO World Heritage Centre situated in the middle of Gozo. The fortified town was built circa 1500BC and holds most of the island’s history. The driver will leave you at the entrance of the Citadel for you to explore. Entrance to the Citadel is free, however, entrance to most of the museums inside the Citadel and the Cathedral are against a fee. We suggest taking a walk through all of the Citadel as well as visiting: The Cathedral, The Old Prison, The Grain Silos and The World War II Shelter.

 

  • Ta’ Pinu Shrine – Gharb (15 mins)

Famously known for the miracles attributed to the grace of Our Lady of The Assumption to whom the previous chapel was dedicated. People from all over the world visit the shrine for offerings and blessings. The newly built church, built around the old chapel, is a splendour on its own with sculptures and craftsmanship in Maltese stone, also with mosaic walls outside of the church. A series of 14 marble statues representing the Via Crucis or Way of the Cross run up the hill opposite the church.

 

  • Local Town – Gharb (15 mins)

Enjoy a walk through this traditional town along the narrow alleyways with colourful balconies and authentic facades.

 

  • Ta’ Dbiegi Crafts Village – Gharb (1 hour)

We stop here to witness the artistic capability of our local artisans. You can enjoy the making of local products such as silver filigree, lace, pottery, leather, stone and glass. If you want to take back with you a local souvenir, then this is the place.

The Crafts Village is not open on Sundays. Alternatively, if you book this tour on a Sunday, the driver will take you to a local open market.

 

  • Wied il-Mielah – Gharb (15 mins)

The Arch at Wied il-Mielah is the new attraction following the fall of the famous Azure Window. One can also witness here the magnificent coastal views the island has to offer.

 

  • Xwejni Salt Pans – Marsalforn (15 mins)

Beautifully designed in geometric patterns, 3km along the coast in Marsalforn, the place where most locals get their table salt from.

 

  • Ggantija Temples - Xaghra (1.5 hr)

Also a UNESCO World Heritage site, standing there boastfully since circa 3600 and 3200BC, beating the pyramids of Egypt in age. The temples are a megalithic temple complex from the Neolithic period.
