Gozo is gorgeous, but by far the best part was the Citadel. It's beautiful and large and fun to walk through. We didn't make it into the church, but absolutely enjoyed our stay there. Every angle was beautiful.

Reference should be ok but check with the agent. He should have given you a phone number. Or ask your hotel to check.
