A warm welcome for 2020
Celebrate in style, as you fly south to historic Malta to enjoy the charms of a place famed for its especially warm welcome for British visitors. The undoubted highlight of this hugely enjoyable holiday will be a Gala Dinner on New Year's Eve.
WHAT DOES THE PRICE INCLUDE?
Day One: Outbound flight from the UK
Fly to Malta, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel in Qawra. Perhaps enjoy a stroll before dinner at the hotel.
Day Two: Included Valletta tour
The first of your included excursions explores island capital Valletta. Take in the award-winning Malta Experience, as well as major sights like Auberge de Castille - the former home to the Knights of St John - and the Upper Barrakka Gardens, from where the Grand Harbour can be viewed.
Day Three: Optional boat trip to Gozo
Join today's optional excursion to Malta's smaller, greener, sister isle Gozo. In sharp contrast to its bustling neighbour, Gozo, which is dotted with ancient temples and mid-millennia churches, including Ta' Pinu's great shrine, presents a sleepy, timeless face to the modern world. Highlights include Calypso's Cave overlooking sandy Ramla Bay, Dwerja's Inland Sea, the delightful coastal resort of Xlendi and the fortified island capital, Victoria.
Day Four: Spend a day relaxing
Enjoy a day of rest and relaxation at the hotel and as you explore the surrounding area.
Day Five: New Year's Eve
A hugely enjoyable New Year's Eve begins with a journey inland to Mosta's famous church, the vast unsupported dome of which survived a direct hit during WWII. The tour also includes visits to Rabat, famous for its subterranean catacombs, and Mdina, the ancient, fortified former capital, with its beautiful 'silent city' of narrow streets lined by stone-built houses.
This evening, celebrate in style with dinner and live entertainment at the hotel.
Day Six: Fly back to the UK
Return to the airport for the flight home, at the end of a wonderful New Year break.

Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 45 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.
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.
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.
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.
Please note that for two people travelling together on one booking, or a single traveller, one piece of hold luggage is included. Additional hold luggage may be purchased at the time of booking at a cost of £40 per bag.
