Valletta Guided Tours and other Malta walks, you will remember!

Giacomo Muscat and Chris Schembri, your Maltese hosts, welcome you to our island and its History with open arms.

Our motivation to get up every morning is to research and share our ancestors’ little known exploits. Especially those who misbehaved, challenged the status quo and defied empires against all odds. Yet survived, through sheer willpower, courage (and some luck). Evidence of this is a rich heritage waiting for you to discover on our tours.


Valletta and Malta’s history is much more than knights in shining armour…

As each location and landmark, you’ll visit on our walking tours reveal delightful surprises, dark truths also! So prepare yourself for connected intricate tales, little known facts, majestic traces of power-hungry empires and larger than life personalities. As well as world-changing events, all originating from our tiny island! 


Whether you join our exclusive Valletta guided tours with your licensed guide Chris, portraying an infamous “Corsair” from Valletta’s past or any other tour of your choice…You’re in for a treat normally missed by most visiting guests and other local tours.

Nothing can delight us, locals, more than sharing our culture, history, personal insights and thoughts with you.

Grazzi. Narawkom!  – Thanks. See you!

“We went on this tour last week while on honeymoon in Malta and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Chris our guide is so knowledgeable about the less known corsairing history of Malta. This is what makes it so interesting, you will not have been told about this in any other tour on the island. Chris tells his tales with such passion you can’t help but be drawn in. It was a truely enjoyable experience that we would highly recommend to anyone visiting Malta. You will not regret going on this tour! Thanks so much Chris, we wish you well for the future, Mark and Karina..”

Chris , our Tour guide is not only an excellent stories teller and a great historian he is also a real comedian, with humour and perfection he manages to captivate his audience during 2 hours in the streets of Valletta. A fantastic way to discover this beautiful city. I really recommend this tour to anyone curiuous about history, Valletta and willing to experience a Real Tour.”
