Join us on a delightful sailing experience and relax in some of the most historical and magical destinations in the Mediterranean. Start at the charming port of Valletta, Malta, featuring an abundance of museums, palaces, and grand churches to visit but be sure not to miss out on exploring one of its beautiful gardens. Ibiza is a place where people hang out because, except for the medieval walls, you could almost think it was the Mediterranean's version of Key West. But away from the hustle of town, some lovely beaches await. Explore Malaga's fortress palace of the Alcazaba and the Castillo de Gibralfaro, splendid examples of Moorish architecture.

Behind the Cathedral, a maze of twisting streets leads to designer boutiques and open-air markets.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
