Special thanks to Frank and Lincoln, excellent help from both
Sorted out change of return flight straight away. Thanks
Travis is exceptional, what else can I say?
Great communication especially in a time of uncertainty. Flights booked then changed very easily.
Vincent was amazing, went above and beyond!
Nick was, as ever, an absolute star! Without his assistance I would probably still be stuck in Spain. My very great thanks to him and his wonderful team. I have recommended him to many friends who all praise him to the skies!
Very helpful with flight and transfer changes
Hotel was comfortable. A bit remote but we knew that. Food not good. And horrors of horrors they closed the bar at 11 pm. Flights on time. Good service and ideal seats.
Kylie has been great and especially helpful with changing out return flight
Thank you so much our holiday which ran like clockwork.
Even on the Saturday as Tenerife was being locked down, I emailed a question and I got an answer back. Looking forward to my holiday you have planned for me in September.
Very good experience. Just in time to avoid any Covid 19 problems.
We had a wonderful time, great location. Great staff who could not do too much for you. Would recommend
Keep on doing what you’re doing.
You were amazing and everything I asked for you did. Will definitely be using you again
Raphael chose a hotel that matched all my requirements and got me good flight times as well as transfer services - well done you
Manny, as usual, was brilliant. We had a lot of issues as we were at H10 hotel in Tenerife and Manny helped us sort out change of return flights
All staff extremely helpful and had no problem in changing my flight.
Very helpful as ever
It is bad that Vueling cancelled our flight out with three hours notice for a reason they had known for 24 hours. But that was not your fault.
All the arrangements were perfect. I had to change return flights on two occasions and both were done without any fuss or difficulty. Excellent service as always.
Trip was very smooth. All went fantastically well.
Michael was very helpful as usual. He always manages to get me just what I need
Thank you so much. I told my friends on Facebook how good you were.
We are always pleased with the personal service
Awish to return is the best compliment a tourist can offer. Asking friends about Malta, I discovered they'd all become regular visitors to this beautiful and heroic island perched south of Sicily at the centre of the ancient trade routes of the Mediterranean.
One of the island's fondest fans is a former pilot who first arrived there during the Second World War, when Malta - an essential British naval base and under constant attack - won the George Cross for bravery. Chums joke he's still looking for the leg he lost in Valletta's Grand Harbour. He just says he loves the place. So does Meghan Markle, who came here in 2015 to check out her Maltese ancestry and found herself wanting to stay.
A three-hour flight from the UK, Malta features year-round sunshine, delicious food (like Meghan, I loved the rabbit stews and fresh fish) and an amazing history. People first arrived in Malta around 5,200 BC and formed farming and fishing communities. The island’s temple period started around 3,600 BC, a thousand years before the first pyramid was built.
UP FROM THE ASHES
Bombed to smithereens during the Second World War, the capital Valletta has finally been restored to picture perfect glory, ready for its reign as this year's European City of Culture.
Elegant old townhouses have been converted into boutique hotels. We stayed at Ursulino, where a roof terrace offers views across the enormous harbour to the ancient city of Birgu.
Ferried over in a gondola at dusk on our first evening, we joined crowds exploring Birgu's narrow streets by candlelight. All electricity is turned off for this one night in the October Festival when house-owners open their doors, musicians rove the streets and actors stage impromptu plays.
It was like stepping back in time to when the Knights of St John took refuge here. Exiled from Rhodes, Birgu was where they first built their lavish palaces during the three centuries they governed the island, defending it from naval attack by the Turks in the Great Siege of 1565, a battle you can safely relive on-screen as part of the well-designed Malta Experience.
There's no escaping Malta's heroic past. Every day, cannons fire a salute across the harbour to honour the Knights. One of the world's biggest and most comprehensive armouries, spreading out along a vast corridor of the Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta, displays an awe-inspiring array of weapons from that famous siege.
Any visit to Malta should include a trip to the ancient city of Mdina, the backdrop to movies such as Gladiator and Troy, and TV's Game Of Thrones. Visiting film stars love to wallow in the laid-back luxury of Mdina's sumptuous Xara Palace Hotel.
WHERE TO GO
It’s worth taking time to enjoy the lovely views over the Mediterranean from the towering Dingli Cliffs. The little fishing harbour of Marsaxlokk - be thankful all the islanders speak flawless English - boasts a cheerful outdoor market where you can buy lace, silver earrings, salted capers and even a fresh tuna head, neatly severed for you by a fisherman's wife.
The side trips add colour and fun. But Valletta is where you'll want to idle time away, strolling down café-filled streets while you discover more about Malta's amazing past.
DINING AL FRESCO
Restaurants played a large role in our five-day visit. My favourites were the outdoor cafe-style eating places centred around one of the two main streets that run the entire hilly length of Valletta.
There was plenty of time to sit and watch the world go by, including the unforgettable spectacle of four Segway-mounted policemen coolly rolling past as the advance guard for their president's black Daimler.
If you want to be sure of a welcome abroad, look no further. The George Cross symbolises a friendship with Britain that thrives as much today as it did during the Second World War.
