The bus finally turned up 30 minutes late and things didn't improve. The driver was forever arguing with the tour guide and was even swearing at other drivers. One of our party was disabled and he tried to pull her on the bus which resulted in her cutting both shins and then he called her useless.
Between the guide and the driver we were taken down many wrong turns and ended up not being able to go into the dome at Mosta. The main problem started with the fact that the two disabled ladies on the tour had not been advised how much walking was to be done in Valetta. My wife and I were left to look after them whilst the guide swanned off into the distance with everybody else. We ended up missing half the 5D film which was the only reason we went to Valetta in the first place.
After missing the dome and lunch, we were then taken to Dingli Cliffs in the pouring rain when we could have skipped this (they were not even impressive, and had more time in Mdina which was the real highlight.
On the way to Dingli the bus had to make a hard left and we were stuck there for nearly 20 minutes whilst the guide & driver got cars moved and directed traffic. The driver even managed to hit a car, set off it's alarm and damage the rear bumper.
Overall very disappointing and we ended up getting a 50% refund from our tour company as they had 10-12 people complaining about the whole fiasco.
