Merhba! My name is Alexander and I live in Gharghur, North East of Malta. I am a licensed, professional tour guide since 2005. For seven years I have been informing and entertaining visitors from across the country and around the world about the sights and history of our beautiful country.
Tour guiding was always my dream. I must say that this profession runs in my family. Since I was a child I used to join my elder sister who is also a tour guide on her tours and I used to love it. At school, history was always my favourite subject and visiting places of interest was my biggest pleasure.
I fulfilled my dream when I was 17 years. I was accepted by the Malta Tourism Institute to participate in the Tour Guiding Course. After 2 years of an intensive full time course, the Malta Tourism Authority had recognized me as one of its qualified guides.
Being a tour guide is an exciting job that introduces you to people and places average travelers and tourists never experience, but it also requires solid skills and knowledge. To ensure this, I participate in various seminars and events in my field. Recently, I participated in a tourism-related EU funded project, consisting of an intensive course equivalent to the level of a Diploma in Tourism Management.
I will be more than happy to help you plan your holiday or show you the most interesting places in the Maltese Islands, either by visiting the oldest free-standing temples in the world, the UNESCO World Heritage city of Valletta, the medieval town of Mdina, the island of Gozo steeped in tradition, or by following one of the many nature trails. Besides the popular traditional tours I also offer a number of excellent themed itineraries for all the different types of groups and ages! Together we can design a programme which suits your interests best.
I have a passion for where I live and I have many ideas for exciting trips that I could take you on.
I look forward to meeting you!
