Welcome to MORTOUR GUIDES! My name is Moisés, as the founder of MORTOUR, it is a pleasure to present to you our tours and to be able to offer the best experience. Working as a tour guide since 2013, I have been guiding in many of the most beautiful cities in the world; Valletta (Malta), New York City (USA), Vancouver (Canada), Valencia (Spain), Granada (Spain), Córdoba (Spain), Austin (USA), etc. I love to explain the cities or tourist attractions with the essence of a local, for this, I dedicate myself to living in that place and studying the daily life, history, tourism, etc. for months to then be able to offer the most authentic experience to my clients. My tours are specialized in historical and cultural routes. I believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to know the history and culture of a city, and I make this possible. For this reason, we offer free tours, where each person decides how much they value the tour and can give the guide the amount they wish at the end, according to their degree of satisfaction and their economic possibility. A group of professional guides will accompany you to show you the tourist attractions of our destinations in the world with a range of different products. If you want a personalized and tailored visit, you can hire a guide for a private tour. To guarantee the quality of our work, we will assign a guide to each group of a maximum of 30 people. Among our services we have: the affordable "free tours", private tours to feel like a VIP traveler, and much more! Our tours are well researched and perfectly designed, if you don't find your date just contact me and we will guarantee your opportunity. Best regard.
About the tour
Do you want to know everything about Valletta? This is your tour.
Valletta is the smallest capital city in the European Union (it does not exceed 6,000 inhabitants) it is impossible to resist its charms.
The history of Valletta is one of the richest in the Mediterranean.

We will explore the narrow streets where the painter Caravaggio was escaping from justice, the colorful balconies, movie sets, as well as the historic buildings from the beginning of the 16th century.
What is a tour without knowing the food? Maltese gastronomy, as much as La Valletta retains many memories of its British past (such as the phone booths or its official co-language), has always been influenced by Italian food, during the tour I will take you to taste the famous Pastizzi or wherever eat a good pizza or have a cocktail with jazz, something that became fashionable during la dolce vita.
Do not worry we have two schedules !!, in the morning if you do not mind the Mediterranean heat you will see the Barrakka gardens from where cannon shots are still fired in honor of the military at noon, if you come in the afternoon you will see a more romantic Valletta and I will show you unique places to take your sunset photos and where to have cocktails.
