Giacomo Muscat and Chris Schembri, your Maltese hosts, welcome you to our island and its History with open arms. Our motivation to get up every morning is to research and share our ancestors’ little known exploits. Especially those who misbehaved, challenged the status quo and defied empires against all odds. Yet survived, through sheer willpower, courage (and some luck). Evidence of this is a rich heritage waiting for you to discover on our tours.
A private child-friendly version of our popular regular Valletta tour – “Licensed to Steal”. This Children’s pirate Valletta tour is a unique tour in the whole Mediterranea. Which is why we made all the top national headlines and media! Now we have also created a children-friendly version of the tour, which is nonetheless still as fascinating and fun for accompany parents or teachers.
We’ll focus on Malta’s Maritime history, in particular, Corsairing and Valletta’s connection with “Licensed Piracy”
Every building in Valletta we will pass and stop by, from Merchants street and more, will clearly show that Corsairing was, especially during the times of the Knights of St John a well-organized industry…and not you’re mainstream “Pirates of the Caribbean”. It was the bread and butter for many on the island.
A point your tour guide Chris Schembri will be entertaining you with, all dressed as a fictional Maltese Corsair…by the name of “Xandru”.
The children will laugh and giggle, as Xandru recruits crew members from the group to involve them in the stories…
Using Visuals, real-life scenarios from our rich historical past, and involvement throughout to keep their attention we will also go deep into little known and incredible Maltese social and cultural aspects.
Pleasant with few inclinations.
