Blue Tour - Malta Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Bus - 4 August 2010
Aug 4, 2010

A "Hop-On Hop-Off" bus tour around the north of the island [blue tour] with Malta Sightseeing. However there was not enough time to get off anywhere [no-one did]. It took over 3 1/2 hours [scheduled for 3hrs], with various delays. We sat for half an hour at one stop, it was packed, and the trip has longish drives between the points of interest.
Everywhere was so busy with long queues at the cruise terminal for these trips that we had no choice as to which tour we took; a matter of getting on the next bus to arrive. I gather the southern tour [red] is better; would not recommend this one, even I got bored and couldn't wait for the end.
