About me:My name is Amy Pace and I am a Maltese national. Tour guiding...

About me:My name is Amy Pace and I am a Maltese national. Tour guiding combines my love for history, architecture and archaeology with teaching, all of which relate to my background. I keep my tours personal, adapting to guests’ personality and appealing to their interests. I try to create experiences that have lasting meanings. I am passionate about my country, have an in-depth knowledge about its history, culture, architectural influences, and archaeology, and love to get my guests enthusiastic about it. My concern is visitors’ satisfaction and enjoyment and my reward is their positive feedback.I am responsible for seeing that itineraries are observed, for ensuring the safety of my guests, as well as for getting them back in time for events, or back to the ship, when on a cruise holiday.I myself, have a love for seeing the different places and learning about their cultures, and savouring the different cuisines.Academic Qualifications:I have a Bachelor Degree in Classical Culture and Philosophy which I followed up with a PGCE. I later obtained a Diploma in Law and Administration and more recently I obtained a Master Degree in Translation Studies. Work Experience:At the start of my career I started off as a full time teacher but moved on to tour guiding shortly after. I am an accredited licensed tour guide, and have been since 1985, therefore having twenty five years of experience in the tour leading industry.Tours Offerred:I offer a variety of tours, at reasonable charges, both historical and archeological, including walking tours of Valletta and of the walled old Capital Mdina, as well as sites not normally sought by tourists, such sites, as would show the true character of the island and its people. I am happy to suggest itineraries or to go with guests’ own preferences. I only engage transport of good standards, and chauffeur driven, so that no time is lost in looking for transport, and the available time is maximized. The guests are picked-up and dropped off at their point of origin or by arrangement. I am always ready to forward my cell phone number so it is possible to communicate any last minute changes.

We contacted Amy about a half day tour, and when she wasn't available she set us up with Neville, who was terrific. He walked us through the Valletta waterfront, bringing to life the Great Siege and the bombardments during WWII, but also taking us through narrow streets and pointing out architectural details. Neville is extremely knowledgeable and conveys his information... More

Amy gave us two tours. One day we spent on Malta, and the other on Gozo. Both tours were great! Amy was flexible with our time, and picked us up from our Air BnB. I would definitely recommend Amy as a tour guide.

Visiting Malta, we decided on the spur of the moment to hire a local, private guide to take us to the ancient temples and see the island. We found Amy Pace through on-line reviews and contacted her in the afternoon about meeting us the very next day. Because she happened to have the day open, she immediately proposed a program,...
