We schedule your return in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure time. All tour times are based on Shore time (ie local time, - not ship time)

THIS IS A PRIVATE TOUR

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation.

The tour will commence to the first site of the temples of Hagar Qim. Malta’s famous prehistoric site The Temples of Hagar Qim (c. 3600 - 3200 BC) stand on a hilltop overlooking the sea and the islet of Filfla.

The views out across the sea from here are beautiful. The temple itself consists of a single temple unit, although it is not clear if it was originally constructed as a four or five-apse structure.

Other temple ruins stand a few metres away from the main temple and the forecourt and facade follow the pattern typical of temples across the Islands. Particularly noteworthy are the larger orthostats at the corners, which are notched to take the second of the horizontal courses above.

Various items of interest have been unearthed at Hagar Qim, notably a decorated pillar altar, two table-altars and some of the ‘fat lady’ statues which are now on display in the National Museum of Archaeology.

Leaving Hagar Qim the tour then proceeds to the western coast of Malta to visit Wied iz-Zurrieq. From here you will board a boat to visit the Blue Grotto, a deep sea cave where the waters are renowned for being so pure and beautiful. The Blue Grotto area is steep and precipitous, but in places there are gaps in the cliffs that slope down to sea level.

One of these gaps (small fjord) is Wied iz-Zurrieq, this narrow arm of the sea is an anchorage for boats in calm weather.  The boats at Wied iz-Zurrieq were, and still are, used for fishing. Many of the fishermen today also use their boats to take visitors to see the deep sea cave. (The boat fee is therefore paid locally)

Your tour then concludes with a scenic coach ride back to the port.
