For this private tour you will meet the local guide at a location and time of your choice. Each tour is different, depending on what you'd like to experience and which season you are visiting, so the first 10 minutes are spent going through the itinerary for the day. Distances in Malta are very short, and if planned well, you will enjoy a number of locations within a short period of time.
Amongst other locations, the main villages visited are Rabat, Mgarr and the outskirts of Mellieha. These are are all rural places where agriculture is still predominant. While hopping from one village to the next, we will buy local products direct from the different farmers, an get a glimpse into their everyday life.
All the while, scenic routes are chosen, so that you get to experience the best out of this rural setting. Malta is full of breath-taking view points - from this North-Western region we can also enjoy views of our sister island - Gozo.
At one point, we will visit a privately-owned farm. This visit would be exclusive for your small group, and here we will savour the fresh products sourced during the day. The light non-cooked lunch, will be similar to a typical farmer's snack, and includes traditional bread, tomato paste, extra virgin olive oil, olives and other condiments, together with local estate wine.
At the end of the experience, the guide will accompany you back to your accommodation or to a pre-established drop-off point.
