THE MYTHICAL ISLAND OF ULYSSIS AND CALYPSO https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4h9j51Yoc64
A few minutes from Malta by boat, Gozo, wilder than her sister Island Malta, will surprise you!
It offers a unique and unforgettable experience. Precisely because Gozo’s landscape and culture are different to those of Malta, even the Maltese feel themselves in another country when visiting Gozo, and many Maltese families own holiday homes here.
Dedicate at least one day to be seduced by the unique beauty and charm of Gozo, a small island which is very different from Malta where lush greenery marries inspiring hilly landscapes and where pristine countryside meets marine ecology.
Our Gozo Day Tours:
Although the island Gozo measures only 14 Km x 7 Km, it offers a unique and unforgettable experience. Precisely because Gozo’s landscape and culture are different to those of Malta, even the Maltese feel themselves in another country when visiting Gozo, and many families own holiday homes here.
Our Gozo Day Tour is organised according to the client’s wishes and requirements. We offer a standard package which consists of:
Safari Gozo Tour : Jeep Safari guided tour and lunch at Ta’ Mena Estate
The Gozo Jeep Safari is probably the best way to see the island of Gozo, where we take you to all the places of interest that our sister island can offer and drive through beautiful countryside and valleys, taking different routes from your ‘normal’ excursions. You will be collected from your accommodation at approximately 7:30am and taken to the Jeep Safari Terminal from where the Safari departs for the Gozo Ferry. Upon arrival in Gozo, we will start our Safari to discover the magical island of Calypso. We drive to the village of Qala and then onto Nadur, down to the red sandy beach of Ramla l-Ħamra (Ramla Bay) and then onto the very quaint village of Xagħra. From here we go onto Victoria, Gozo’s Capital City where we will stop for some free time and also lunch. After lunch we head off for Marsalforn which is a very popular tourist resort and then onto Dwejra with its ‘Inland Sea’ and Azure Window. From Dwejra we head to the Fishing Village of Xlendi and then back to the ferry.
Agritourism estate – vineyards, olive groves, fruit tree orchards and vegetable farm
For those who have the passion for wine, you will be given the opportunity to visit wineries, vineyards, taste wines and even purchase wine directly from the source. At our wine estate a typical wine tour starts with a historical introduction of wine making in the Maltese Islands, followed by a visit to our vineyards. The tour can also be extended to our winery which is only three minutes away by car. You will be given the opportunity to taste the different wines produced in our boutique winery, as well as purchase wines from our retail outlet located at the wine estate.

The wine tasting sessions are also accompanied by some of our typical preserved food such as sundried tomato paste, capers, olives, Gozo peppered cheese-lets and some pâtés.
During the grape harvest season you may also take an active part in the grape harvest and observe the wine making process in our state-of-the-art winery.
At the estate we produce typical Gozitan foods. We use traditional recipes which were used by our ancestors who did not have the luxury of refrigeration but who still had to provide for the winter season.
Their valuable skill was the use of the Mediterranean Sun and natural preservatives, particularly marine salt, to preserve several foods and beverages namely the Sun Dried Sweet Tomato Paste, the Sun Dried Tomatoes, Wild Capers in Vinegar and the Prickly Pear Liqueur.
You will be invited to involve themselves in fruit & vegetable picking and experience the preparation of these traditional food products which include:
Sun dried tomato paste
