Tour Details


Join the Night-Watchman of Mdina as the silent yet treacherous urban streets of the city come to life, revealing sinister characters and mysterious Mdina attractions awaiting your discovery on one of our guided tours of Malta!

Uncover Mdina’s dark secrets and learn how upholding law and keeping order isn’t easy, where your honour is paramount, and disputes are solved at the pointy end of a dagger.

Torture and executions may bring justice, but unrestful spirits continue to roam. Despite the church’s condemnation, adultery is rampant, and your Night-watchman, keeper of secrets and privy to the city’s bedhopping, is discreetly tipped to keep silent.

Rebellions run wild; daily possibilities of uprisings against the city’s lord abound. Quick alliances are imperative, yet a wrong choice may hasten your demise.

Amidst the evil spirits that emerge at night, among Mdina’s attractions angels bring about miracles in a city ravaged by war.

The Night-watchman awaits news from un-recognizable friends, but some may be spies caught by the vigilant Night-watchman and his team. However, stopping the deadly plague’s entry into the city remains up in the air—no pun intended.

As Fort St. Elmo falls and the Ottoman invasion force tightens its grip on the surviving cities, the fate of the Night-watchman and Mdina hangs in the balance. Will it all matter, or is Mdina doomed and damned?
