What you'll do

This is the best tour for one to get a full experience of both Mdina, the old capital city of Malta and its suburb Rabat. A professional, fully licensed tourist guide who has always lived in Rabat will first take you around the streets of Mdina past the most important palaces and monuments, along the fortifications of the city and also through the lesser known corners. We walk past the Cathedral, the noble family palaces and also along various places where Game of Thrones was filmed.

After having taken the most instagrammable photos of Mdina, the tour proceeds on foot into Rabat where you discover the narrow winding roads which will eventually get you to the larger squares where the big churches of Rabat are located. Walking past the place where St Paul has lived while in Malta. We also walk into the more modern parts, past the schools, windmill and the beautiful convents and monastries which are amazing jewels in the history of Rabat.

The tour takes you then along more narrow streets past more important buildings including community band clubs, 16th century churches and also some beautiful British architecture examples to finish off back at the gates of Mdina.

Showing people around the Maltese Islands is not just a job to me but a passion which I love passing onto visitors who join my tours. I also happen to live in Rabat and have worked on a volontary basis in various sectors of the community hence I can pass onto all participants aspects of the city which very few people are aqcuainted with. This will be the best experience you will get of both Mdina and its suburb Rabat with all their beautiful aspects.

Chris was wonderful in talking to the group about the history of Mdina. The experience was better than we expected and we will surely come back to the city for another visit. Do not forget to taste the Maltese ftira - delicious!

Amazing tour with an amazing guide. It was the second tour in a row I too with him. Very complete tour, not only historical, but also explaining social impacts of the history. Absolutely recommended.

this my first time booking with airbnb. Christian was amazing, if you want a good understanding of Mdina., Valetta, Christian is the person. I was not aware airbnb also offer tours, however be careful, you cannot communicate with them if anything goes wrong unlike Victor's and other tour companies. I am Glad Christian was spectacular, other wise we could have left the island with a bitter taste. the other tour guy was no reliable, we lost a day in Malta, too late to do other bookings and no phone number to contact airbnb. in my opinion I will recommend Christian to my friends, but I won't use airbnb if they don't offer a phone line in case anything goes wrong.

Christian was a fantastic tour guide. We found the tour informative and Christian also had a great sense of humour. He really managed to engage with all the tour participants and keep the morale up despite the heavy rain. Would higjly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Malta!

The tour around Mdina and Rabat with Chris was interesting, exciting and really fun. He didn't only show us lots of interesting places and details, but he also knew lots of stories about the people living there, no matter if they were dead or alive. He recommended us quite a few places to eat and told us about a band festival in Rabat the next day which we attended. Without Chris we would have been only visitors, but thanks to him we almost felt like we belonged there. We recommend his tour 100% to anyone who's interested in learning more about these fascinating two towns!
