Gozo Tours & Excursions

Gozo is a beautiful gem of an island that you simply must visit when you travel to Malta. It pulled on my heartstrings so much that I chose this as the place to propose to Jade, high on a cliff in the shadow of a lonely watchtower.

If you’re not looking for that romantic aspect then Gozo has everything from diving to ATV adventures and kayaking to guided tuk-tuk tours; there is something here for everyone. Here are our top Gozo tours, handpicked for you to find what you’re looking for.

Before You Book – IMPORTANT

Some of the following Gozo tours (nearly all of them) offer pick-up and drop-off on the mainland, including the ferry across. Please be aware that this will be a significant amount of time on your tour.

For example, if a tour states that it is 8 hours long with pick-up and drop-off on the mainland then getting to Gozo and back again will be a portion of that time. This could be upwards of 2-3 hours.

Therefore, I HIGHLY recommended simply staying in Gozo for a couple of days and starting your Gozo tours and activities on Gozo itself. This will greatly reduce travel time and will lead to a better overall experience in my opinion.


Driving Gozo Tours

Full-Day Jeep Tour

This is one of the most highly rated ways to see Gozo out of all of the Gozo tours on this list. It comes with pick-up from your hotel on the mainland and a private ferry across to Gozo Island so you shouldn’t have to wait for too long once you reach the harbour.

Any of the gozo tours worth their salt will include a trip to the incredible Citadella

The tour is limited to 5 people per group which immediately makes this a more personal and private experience which is a huge bonus. You will be driven around the island, seeing the best sights that Gozo has to offer with a lunch included in the middle. After the tour, you will be taken back to your hotel on the mainland or Gozo (if that’s where you are staying).

This is the Gozo tour I would choose for people who want the easiest, most relaxing, and most convenient way of visiting Gozo and its many incredible sights. Check out how to book and availability here!

Key Information

  • Tour Duration: 8 Hours
  • Pickup Included: Yes
  • Age Suitable For: All

Full-Day Quad Bike Tour

So, you looked at the jeep tour above and you thought to yourself ‘I want that but a little more adventurous!’ Well, here it is. This is a 7-10 hour quad bike tour around rugged roads and incredible sights. Trust me, some of the roads on Gozo require something as capable as an ATV so you’ll be able to see all of the island!

This is one of the Gozo tours that include lunch and tastings so you should have the energy to get through the whole day. On the way back to Malta (on the private speed boat) you will also get to pass by Comino island and get a glimpse at the beauty that has to offer. This is, of course, not included for people staying on Gozo but I think you should spend a whole day on Comino anyway! Check out how to book and availability here!

  • Pickup Included: Yes

Quad Adventure Tour

This Gozo ATV tour is essentially the same as the tour above with a few different locations if you want to check out which you might prefer. However, it is also a very highly rated ATV experience and is a great option if the above quad tour is fully booked for your day.

It offers all of the same things (lunch pick-up, etc) and is also very slightly cheaper so if you’re looking to save the pennies then this could be the option for you. Check out prices, reviews, and availability here!

The standard ferry/pick-up is included which is also a private boat that will negate long waits at the ferry terminal.

The tuk-tuk itself is not too small so do not worry if you are on the tall side, you will be comfortable enough. This particular tuk-tuk activity is well known for its included food which is a delightful traditional Gozitan lunch that has very high reviews.

One of the best things about this is that you can choose the time it starts. There is no need to get up at a ridiculous hour if you don’t want to! Check out reviews, images, and how to book here!

The tour will take you around the island and you will get to see the beautiful blue lagoon along with beaches, bays, and caves. This is probably the best active experience you can do out of all of the Gozo tours in my opinion. Check out the 3-hour option here and the 6-hour option here!

Gozo E-Bike Tour

Exactly what it says on the tin, an incredible guided tour around the east side of Gozo with an E-Bike to ensure you don’t get fatigued throughout the experience. Being on a bike will allow you to truly take in the scenery and sights without any of the rumblings of an engine or the speed of an ATV.

The guide is very highly rated with many people singling them out for praise in the many 5-star reviews. The tour starts and ends in Gozo so make sure you have planned accordingly. Check out prices and availability here!

I absolutely suck at paddleboarding and would recommend kayaking over this but you might not be so terrible at it so check out prices and availability here!

Two Morning Dives In Gozo

If you are a certified diver then you almost certainly know about the incredible diving opportunities around Gozo. This activity offers 2-morning dives into the massive caves around Gozo and is a great way to jump back into diving whilst you are in Gozo.

It includes all the equipment you will need (except the dive computer for a small additional fee) and you will have to make your way to the start location yourself at 8 am so I highly recommend staying in Gozo the night before. Check out prices and more information here!

When To Do Gozo Tours

We think the best time to go to Malta is September/October. This is when the weather is not too scorching hot and the summer crowds have massively dwindled. Check out our entire guide to Malta in October here.

Any time of year in this incredible country is perfect for Gozo tours, however. This beautiful country really does not have a period of time that it is not recommended to come.


Other Things To Do In Malta

Blue Lagoon

I know a couple of the Gozo tours on this list have the Blue Lagoon in them, however, I highly recommend making a day of it if you have not selected one of those tours. It is an absolutely beautiful lagoon that you can safely swim in all day long.

In the high season it becomes a bit of a party so if you love that sort of atmosphere then definitely check it out. On either side of high season, it is a bit more reserved and this could be the best time to relax and swim in the best waters around Malta.

Check out our entire guide to the Blue Lagoon in Malta here or book yourself onto our top recommended Blue Lagoon tour right now!


Valletta Walking Tour

Valletta is easily one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever seen and there is no better way to do it than jumping on the original Valletta walking tour. This insanely highly rates walking tour takes you through all of the best places in the city and teaches you about the incredible history that the streets have to offer. Book your place on the tour here.


Mdina Walking Tour

Mdina actually rivals Valletta in picturesque beauty, mainly due to its incredibly peaceful and quiet streets that almost envelop the walkways that lead around the city. Check out our entire guide to Mdina and its walking tours here!


Popeye Village

A little bit of a turn away from all of the historic significance and picturesque beauty here! Did you know the original Popeye movie (starring Robin Williams) was made in Malta? Well, they kept the set up after it finished and turned it into a water park! It is a great day out for families and we highly recommend a visit. Check out the website here for more information.

Sunset Drink

This is a bit of a local knowledge type of thing that we love to put into our Malta guides. In Sliema Bay, there is a really cool boat called the Guadalupe which is moored down the harbour. It is a great place to grab a drink and snack and watch the sunset into the water. Check out their Facebook page for more information here!


What To Take On Gozo Tours

Gozo tours are very varied but most of them follow the same sort of itinerary. Here is a list of all the items I think you will need on one of these Gozo tours. They all get updated regularly so remember to click through to see prices and local availability.

ANLUKE Water Shoes

Frequently Asked Questions

I think the best way to see Gozo is by jumping on an ATV tour across this tiny island. If you would prefer something a little less extreme then jumping on a jeep tour is a much more comfortable way of seeing the same things.

Are Tours In Gozo Worth It?

As Gozo is off of the mainland, it can be annoying to get over to the island and really make the most of your day trip (if you have not chosen to stay in Gozo). By jumping on a tour, you don’t have to worry about transport and you will ensure you make the most of your time.

What Are The Best Gozo Tours For Couples?

I reckon the segway tours are the best for couples. Don’t ask me why, there is just something about zooming around on a segway next to a loved one that makes me think it would be cool!

What Are The Best Gozo Tours For Families?

For sure the best Gozo tours for families are the jeep tours. You can fit 5 people in the jeep and have a family private adventure all to yourself! Unless there are more than 5 of you!

How Long Are Gozo Tours?

They range from a couple of hours to 10 hours long

How Much Are Tours In Gozo?

The average price of a Gozo tour is around £50-£60 per person but this can vary quite a lot depending on the tour.
