The Citadella visitor centre with its exhibition depicting the history is worth visiting. It is a small exhibition and free to browse. There is a very well done Audio Visual show which is included in a ticket which features 3 or 4 places of interest within The Citadel. It is a very new centre and worth visiting before entering the main Citadel area.

Probably the best day of my week holiday in Malta. Nice people and good photography. More kayak less boats! Floating right on the sea level is the experience to try. Enjoy it

We really enjoyed our sunset tour with Gozo fun. Emmanuele is an excellent instructor and the tour is very well planned. The landscape is beautiful especially the caves and the SUP experience is easier than one might think, though a few splashes are guaranteed Totally recommend.

Had an awesome holiday. We dived wrecks, caves and reefs. The instructors/guides were brilliant, particularly Richard Salter and Alan O Reilly. They explained the history of the site and what marine life we would see. Very helpful and professional. The contact between Diane and our dive centre was brilliant and efficient. Would definitely recommend gozo and St. Andrews divers cove to other divers and centres back home.

Ggantija Megalithic Temples

Reviewed By Stephen F

A bit expensive but the entrance price includes access to the old windmill a few minutes walk away.
There is an interesting and informative exhibition centre that you should look around before visiting the temple. Walking along a well maintained pathway flanked by native flora and fauna you soon approach the temple complex. Unlike on Malta the temple isn’t as well maintained or covered but you have direct access via walk boards interspersed with signs explaining points of interest.
Following the path to the exit you are led into a compact gift shop well stocked to encourage you to buy souvenirs.

We stayed here and ventured into the dining room twice. The menu was not inspiring though the staff did their best to jolly us along. The mains were expensive (c€ 20-25) and the wine also. They rely on a captive audience from hotel guests without their own transport.

If however, they are short on time, they can still contact us and we will do our best to accommodate them the best way we can. All wine tasting sessions are conducted in the afternoon. During winter and mid season tours are conducted at 3.15Pm and when the hot season starts vineyard tours are done at a later time. It is our policy that when the weather permits all wine tasting sessions are conducted at the vineyards at Gharb. Further details will be provided once booking is confirmed.

Really enjoyed our visit to Tal-Massar. The place is situated in a quite picturesque area in the Gozitan countryside. The winery and it's owners are very genuine, knowledgeable and kind! The tour consisted of a tour of the vineyards, followed by tasting of their 4 wines with nibbles to compliment the wines. The wines are of very high quality and reasonably priced for the quality, a reflection of the great knowledge and dedication that the owners have.
All 4 of us loved the visit and would love to do it again in the near future. Highly recommended!!
Being Maltese, I really do wish this winery the very best and I'm happy that their great work is finally being recognised and will soon be more widely distributed across the island!
