Malta Islamic History Tour

Would you like to time-travel across 379 years to Islamic Malta to witness the hidden jewels left by Muslims in this stunning European island?

Board a time machine to witness the wonders of the Muslim Aghlabids dynasty, learning the full story in exciting chronological order as events have happened!

  • Medina

    Built in the 5th century of Islam by the Aghlabid, this fortified heritage city was a self sufficient Muslim town erected on top of the central hill, overlooking a panorama of the entire island of Malta!

  • Valetta

    While the current capital of Malta is the smallest in Europe, it is a living breathing open air museum that looks stunning anywhere you turn. Get lost in the small side streets with your camera! 

  • Gozo Island

    A short hop by boat from mainland Malta takes you to an island full of dramatic rock formations, where the crystal clear waters are warm all year, inviting you to swim, snorkel, or have a diving adventure!

  • Popeye's Village

    The colourful village which was built for Popeye's movie is now a fully functioning amusement town, whether you want to explore around, or sit down and enjoy the view with a spinach dinner! :)

  • Mariam Mosque

    Learning history would be incomplete if we didn't connect the past with the present, which is why we need to learn about the 3,000 Maltese Muslims by visiting the Grand mosque & school!

The Gates of Malta's Medina welcome you inside!

The Fish in Coral Lagoon invite you to tickle your feet!

Or go to the depths and feel the colourful corals!

Frequently asked Tour Questions

What type of hotels are included in the tour?

All the hotels in the tour are 4 star hotels, such as the Ramada chain, which include a tasty buffet breakfast, conference facilities for our daily classrooms, & modern ammenities such as wireless wifi, etc. The exact names of the hotels will be revealed about 2 months before the tour starts, as it depends on the final number joining and availability.

How many persons in each room? Can I have a single room if travelling alone?

The base price includes sharing a room with a second person. If you would like to have a private single room, you can add 120 pounds to the price.

What time should I arrive or leave?

You can arrive any time on the first day of the tour. The first day will be a relaxing day, as people may arrive at different times due to having a later flight. Therefore, feel free to explore the beautiful beaches of Malta and absorb the atmosphere. We will have an introductory meeting at night (we will inform you about the time), but that will be optional too for those who are arriving late. The actual tour will start on the next day, so don't worry about arriving late on the first day of the tour. Your hotel room will be reserved and ready for you any time you arrive insha'Allah.

Similarly, you can any time on the last day of the tour insha'Allah.

Do you offer pick up from Malta airport?

Pick up will be arranged from Malta airport to hotel only during the first day of the tour. You will need to send us your flight details so we could arrange pick ups for the group. If you arrive a day earlier or a day later, you can still easily arrive to the hotel using either a bus (very cheap) or taxi, or a combination of both. Malta is a relatively small island and it takes a few minutes to a maximum one hour to go between any two points on the island, except during rush hour.

Can I arrive a few days earlier or remain a few days later?

Yes of course. You can extend your hotel stay on either arrival or departure.

How many people are in each bus?

The minimum number to run the tour is 16, and the max is 50. The buses are large enough to provide enough comfortable space for everyone.

Are meals included in the tour cost?

The tour includes a breakfast buffet every day of your stay. Other meals are to be purchased seperaterely as to give our attendants maximum flexibility and variety according to their budgets. Malta's food is reasonably priced and similar to Italian and Arabic cuisine (seafood and Halal options are available).

Do you arrange flight bookings?

To keep the tour cost as low as possible and accomdate all types of travellers, our price only includes land services. If you want to search for flights, we recommend as it is the cheapest flight search engine and the most advanced. You can put multiple airports in the "from" field, and put Malta airport in the "destination field, and then you see all prices on the calendar. The photo below is an example from London to Malta Airport.

Can a sister travel alone without a Mahram (Guardian)?

It is permissible for sisters to travel in safe groups insha'Allah, and Alhamdulillah we will have many sisters on our tour group. This is also the opinion that is followed in Saudi Arabia during Hajj times, as women are allowed to travel in Hajj groups.

What time should I book my flight on the final day of the tour?

The final day of the tour is a free-day, therefore, feel free to book your return flights any time on the last day. If you wish to stay longer to enjoy the sights and attractions of Malta, you may do so. You request extra hotels nights in the "special request" section, for the days either before or after the tour.

Do I need a visa to visit Malta?

Malta is part of the schengen zone. If you are from an EU member country, or have a passport from English-speaking countries (US, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, etc), then you don't need a visa to visit Malta. If you are from other parts of the world, then you may need to apply for a schengen visa from the Maltese embassy (or the country of your point of entry in Europe) in your country. If there is no Maltese embassy in your country, then it is possible to get the visa from the Italian embassy.

What is the best way to get the local currency?

The best way to get local money is to use the ATM machine and choose the charge in local currency. Your bank charges much lower rates than exchange offices. It is also recommended that you bring some dollars, euros, or UK pounds as emergency money. However, if you would like to exchange the cash you have for the local currency, avoid the airport exchange office, even if they advertise "0% comission", as they will make more than 10% on the unfavourable exchange rate. Instead, exchange from the local foreign currency shops in the city. Observe the difference between the "buy" and "sell" rate, and if the difference is small, it means you have a good rate (1-3% difference of internet rate max). If you travel frequenctly, useful way is to use a multicurrency debit card, such as transferwise, which gives you almost the same real time internet rate close to 0.5% percent. Here is the link to sign up:

What is your refund policy?

The downpayment paid for the tour is non-refundable. However, we would be able to transfer the down payment to another tour for a small administrative fee, as long as we receive the change request a minimum 30 days before the tour.
Once it is 30 days before the tour, the full amount is non-refundable and non-transferable. We may at our discretion be able to give you a full or partial refund if cancelling your group would not affect the minimum number of participants to run the tour, or our logistical costs.

That being said, while we cannot make any guarantees, we will try our best to help you when it is possible, as we understand that emergencies do happen. You may be able to purchase a travel insurance if you expect a disruption to your travel plans.

What clothes should I bring to the tours?

That depends on the season as explained below: Summer: Light cloth, sunscreen, swimsuit, and an umbrella if you would like to block the sun. You may also carry or purchase a hand fan for noon time (although we will try to avoid peak heat times by being in shaded areas, air-conditioned bus, or lunch in an air conditioned restaurant). Winter: Winters are mild (20 to 16 Celsius, or 70 to 60 Fahrenheit). Bring a few layers to adjust to the varrying temperatures throughout the day (shirt, sweater, and light jacket). If you are sensitive to cold, then you may bring a heavy jacket too, although it is most likely not necessary. There are occasioal mild rains, so you may bring an umbrella or a rain jacket with hoodie if you wish.

Spring or Autumn: Not hot and not cold. It is perfect :) The weather is generally warm in those seasons. Light clothes and occasionally light jacket for cloudy nights are recommended.
