Tour started with a van pickup at the designated meeting point near the port. The van driver had no signage and as it turned out was picking up folks for multiple tours. Took about 20 minutes to get to a point where the van driver said we were to be transferred to a coach. Had to wait almost 30 minutes for all coaches to arrive (about 6). Again no signage to designate which coach was for which tour. When we got on coach, it turned out that tour was being given in both English and German, which detracts as I don't think you get as much explanation when having to repeat. First stop was the Gardens which were underwhelming. We then went to Mdina which was interesting but could have used more time instead of stop at gardens. Dingli Cliffs were a 10 minute photo stop. We were then taken to another transfer point to get on a van to go back to Valletta since some of the folks on the coach were on a longer tour. We got back to port at Valletta over an hour later that scheduled which didn't leave us much time to visit the beautiful town. The whole tour could have been much more enjoyable if we had skipped Gardens and spent
