Our guide was obviously very passionate about the subjects covered in his tours, he was able to paint a very good picture of what happened in each part of the building. This was one of the most interesting places we visited in Valletta.

Start the tour from Upper Barakka and you will be taken to the War Rooms as part of the tour. Upper Barakka is close to Castille, the prime minister's office.

Hi, I am unsure of the exact times of the tours, when I went one was due to start so we just tagged on to that. It was about an hour and is all included in the admission price. It really is well worth it :)
