Do you want to go Local for a day?

This Eco tour will take you away from the usual tourist sites to show you the places and people we know and love.  This tour is entirely reliant on the skills and friendliness of the people of Gozo!   Rather than the usual tour guide format where guests are "told" information - this tour introduces you to a variety of local people in their everyday work and play settings.  You have the opportunity to ask questions directly to these local experts - and we’re never quite sure how they will react!

Every day is a learning day!

We don't like to give away too many details of this day to keep the element of surprise.

We will however tell you that the day includes a large focus on traditional foods with opportunities to do more than just to eat it for lunch (although that bit alone is worth coming for!). The day also gives you opportunities to interact with local people other than hotel or restaurant staff, learn a little bit more about everyday life and traditions and learn a new game or two on the way.

Interaction between tourists and locals helps visitors to understand more about Gozo.  However, at a time of globalisation when many traditional skills are being lost, the interest and admiration of visitors for these traditional ways of life helps to foster a sense of pride amongst the Gozitan people which we hope will help to keep these skills alive. One of the highlights of the tour is a farm visit where we learn how to make the traditional Gozitan cheese :-)

The Eco tour includes an experienced guide, all transport, meetings and experiences with a range of local people, and a seated restaurant meal (traditional Gozitan lunch) with wine (for those of the correct age).  To run the tour a minimum of 8 people is required, however if your group is less still let us know and we can see if we can combine your group with another.

Please understand that due to the nature of the tour, this cannot be booked last minute so we recommend to check with us at least a week in advance if you are interested.
