Bugibba Tour

The Bugibba tour departs right next to the Bus terminus and proceeds to explore the seaside area and its many restaurants, shops, bars and hotels. The train also goes into the older part of St. Paul's Bay (which Bugibba forms part of) passing by the Wignacourt Tower and an impressive chapel built by the Knights.

Rabat Tour

Malta Fun Trains would like to introduce you to their new trackless train which operates in Rabat Malta.

The Train departs from a terminus next to the Domus Romana outside Mdina.

The sightseeing train tour provides an informative commentary on the historical, cultural and architectural importance of the area whilst providing great fun for all the family.

The tour’s duration is approximately 30 minutes with an 8km route that passes close to Mdina Main Gate and Casino Notabile, entering into the heart of Rabat next to St. Paul’s Church, the catacombs of St. Agatha and St. Paul’s and thereon into Ghar Barka outside Rabat.

The train proceeds into Mtarfa viewing the Royal Navy Hospital and the Clock Tower then downhill with magnificent and panoramic views of Malta and the old capital Mdina. The train passes over the bridge close to the Old Railway Station and thereafter up the steep hill close to Mdina Bastions and through Greek Gate Tunnel before ending the tour at the terminus next to the Domus Romana.

Touristy but well worth the €5 for the half hour or so ride on the little yellow road train that starts from just outside Bugibba Bus Station and takes you through Qawra and on to St Paul's Bay and back along the seafront. The recorded commentary relayed over the loudspeaker to the accompaniment of a jolly jingly tune just adds... More

The train runs from outside St. John's Co Cathedral. At €5 each for just under half an hour, we thought this would be a nice relaxing way to see different parts of the city. It was, apart from some wailing kids. There is a set commentary in English, which is not the most interesting and this is interspersed by rather... More

We took the Valletta road/train through the streets of the town centre some of the roads are very steep, so hold on tight!! Entertaining commentary from the driver and an opportunity to take photographs. A good way to see the harbour without having to walk up and downhill on a hot day or if your legs are tired. The train... More

The 'train' (on wheels), picks you up from the main road adjacent to the sea front outside 1 of the large restaurants in Buggiba. 40 minutes approx. around various parts of Bugibba, loud, pumping music enhances the atmosphere and gets everyone in the spirit (even Hannah-teenager!). Lots of whooping, cheering and waving as you pass people, mostly reciprocated. Our train... More
