With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.
Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.
Malta's lovely capital of Valletta was built primarily as a fortification, as you will discover firsthand as by touring the city via motor coach. Once in Mosta, site of the soaring 19th century Mosta Dome church, you can admire its inlaid marble floor and the gilded, carved stone flowers set around the dome, the third largest in Europe. This tour also visits Malta's highest point, the Dingli Cliffs, which offer a striking view of the sea and the wonderfully rugged coastline. Driving inland to Mdina, Malta's original capital, you can't help but notice its landmark Baroque Cathedral of St. Paul rising above the city's protective walls. In nearby Rabat, you will stop for refreshments in a local restaurant, and then tour a glass-blowing factory in Ta Qali Handicrafts village.
Please note: When visiting the Cathedral, knees and shoulders must be covered. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are not permitted. There are occasions when the Mosta Dome is closed due to spiritual functions without any prior notice.
