Malta Food and Wine Tour with Visit of Local Farm - shared tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation, and head towards the north-west of the island. Since you will visit village cores, there will be only a small number of guests in the group. Apart from respecting the local communities and environment, this will also make the tour even more exclusive.

    Amongst other locations, the main villages visited are Rabat, Mgarr and the outskirts of Mellieħa. These are are all rural places where agriculture is still predominant. While hopping from one village to the next, you will be able to sample local products direct from the different farmers, meet the locals, 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 you can also enjoy views of sister island - Gozo.

    At one point, you will visit a privately-owned olive grove. This visit would be exclusive for our small group, and here you will savor 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.

    Booked on this tour during a short stay in Malta and it was great. The initial booking was a little confusing - as they only have space for a maximum of 10 people on the tour you have to email them rather than booking online....More
