I knew a little about the WW2 history of Malta but thie tour of the war rooms and our guide Stefan really added to that knowledge. Stefan was knowledgable and passionate about the subject which made the tour all the more enjoyable. Would recommend.

Start the tour from Upper Barakka and you will be taken to the War Rooms as part of the tour. Upper Barakka is close to Castille, the prime minister's office.

Hi, I am unsure of the exact times of the tours, when I went one was due to start so we just tagged on to that. It was about an hour and is all included in the admission price. It really is well worth it :)
