The Malta Council for Culture and the Arts is launching a new series of Cultural Tours. These Cultural Tours form part of our annual Cultural Calendar of Events. They enhance the understanding of our local culture and serve to increase the knowledge of Maltese historical heritage, traditions and skills. A total of eight cultural tours will be scheduled for the 2011–2012 season coming to an end on Saturday 19th May 2012. Participants will be accompanied by professional guides at all times and tours are available in Maltese and English.
