Focusing mainly on Malta's more rural north, these excellent small-group tours negotiate quiet country backroads to visit farmers and small-scale producers of cheese, wine, olives and preserves. Most of the operations are organic and sustainable, and access is only possible with Merill. Look forward to historical and cultural insights, lots of eating and drinking, and the opportunity to meet some really interesting local characters. A shorter Tuesday tour (per person €35) focuses on an olive-grove experience.
