Meet Us

Vicky and Clive met though their professional guiding work at Heritage Malta and have been married together since 2014. They both enjoy nature, admire history and culture, and share a keen passion for world travel. Whilst on holiday they always seek the best and most authentic travel experiences through meeting and getting to know the locals. As tourists seek them in Malta, whilst travelling they also look for local tour guides like themselves, to help them make the most of their leisure time and get them off the beaten track.

It is actually this personal experience which makes their work as Malta’s Private Guides so authentic, valuable and rewarding for their clients. Vicky and Clive look forward to hosting you soon and showing you all that the beautiful Maltese islands have to offer.
