Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Malta, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel in Qawra.

Day Two

Rest and relax in the hotel, getting to know this delightful area, which throws itself into the Christmas festivities every year, with its bars and cafes that fringe the sandy bay all dressed for the season.

Day Three

On the first of our included excursions you'll explore Valletta. Visit the award-winning Malta Experience, where an audio-visual presentation will reveal the history of the island and its capital; the Lascaris War Rooms; the Upper Barracca Gardens; and the Auberge de Castille - former home to the Knights of St John.

Day Four

This afternoon's optional excursion will take you to Sliema to board a cruiser for a fascinating tour of Valletta's spectacular Grand Harbour. The scale of the massive fortifications, wharves and waterside buildings becomes all the more apparent when seen from the water.

Day Five (Christmas Eve)

Today brings an opportunity for some last minute Christmas shopping, as well as an included excursion taking us on a journey back in time, as we cross Valletta's Grand Harbour to reach the three medieval 'cities' of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea.

This evening, begin your Christmas celebrations with dinner and live entertainment at the hotel.

Day Six (Christmas Day)

Enjoy a perfect Christmas day of rest, relaxation and celebration in the hotel and its surroundings, including traditional Christmas Dinner and live entertainment.

Day Seven (Boxing Day)

Enjoy a restful day, or perhaps join the optional excursion to delightful Gozo. Board the ferry for a crossing to the quaint port of Mgarr, and visit the island's fortified capital, Victoria, picturesque Marsalforn, famous Calypso's Cave overlooking sandy Ramla Bay and the fascinating 'Inland Sea' at Dwerja.

Spend a last evening in the hotel, reliving the highlights of a special Christmas.

Day Eight

Return to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

21st December departures

Please note that flights on 21 December from Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick depart one day later than the other flights. Therefore, for these arrivals, Day Three in the above itinerary is Day Two and Day Eight will be a final day of leisure.

St Neots Couple
Hotel was tired and dated. Swimming pool etc in poor condition. Room very cramped and dated did not even have a chair. Had to call maintenance twice re TV not working, gave after that. Meals was poor with very little variety, no veggie options, hence salad everyday. Bar too small entertainment poor. Staff tried there best but were poorly trained. No Christmas Day Gala event just another day. Christmas Eve was supposed to be a gala dinner, however this was same as other days, no turkey, trimmings or festivities. Yes, you did get a cracker!! There's more but no room.

Bath Somerset Couple
Overall it was a very enjoyable Xmas holiday.Malta a beautiful country,Hotel was friendly .good food and plenty of it,Room was average ,bit small but ok for a week.Balcony nice but at back there was no real view and work going on at next building .no noise but piles of building rubbish as the view,Had to pay to view TV so did not bother .Never had to pay for tv in hotel before.Also no tea or coffee supplied although a kettle for use.Wanted 2euro 50c per day for tea coffee & milk.Bought a jar of coffee from store next door for 2euro which lasted the week & took sugar from breakfast bar ,we drink black coffee.This seemed a rip off to have to pay for room tea & coffee again never had this experience in hotels before. Bathroom could have been cleaner .Shower outlet bit smelly with hair blocking plug hole.Only half glass shower screen so floor got soaked with water which could be slippery.Would not use this hotel again .Had a good time in Malta despite room problems.Had to ask for extra toilet roll as not restocked by cleaner .Newmarket tours were good .

This was a good winter break which we enjoyed.The local bus service was cheap and very easy to use.The hotel staff were helpful.
The only disappointment was the Christmas dinner as advertised but did not happen,which was one reason we booked this trip.There was no live entertainment on Christmas day either.The hotel provide a Christmas lunch but as our group were not on full board we missed this and only found out afterwards!!!It was also our Golden wedding anniversary,so it took the edge off a good time.

An excellent hotel with extremely good included excursions. Trudi, our guide, was amazingly good. The food in the hotel was incredible and the Christmas Eve Gala Buffet was a triumph.
