    Gozo by jeep with MTS Gozo

    Gozo is a small island but its not easy to explore its hidden beauties. If you tend to go by bus you ll end up going to the usual attractions highlighted on guide books. We booked a jeep tour with MTS Gozo services. They have their office right at Mgarr harbour once you arrive with the ferry. Easy to find and Sylvia is very helpful. Paul the driver of the jeep was a great entertainer and we arrived to places that us alone would never have made it at all. Thanks Paul. A day to remember :)

    Car rental

    by shavy Updated Dec 14, 2013
    Small and economical

    Car hire is the best way to travel around in Gozo, you are free and no hassle
    In the island is no traffic in compare to Malta. If you have rented a car in Malta, you can take your car with you on the ferry boat for 15.70 euro plus extra 4.65 euro for a passenger and you are set for everything

    In Gozo Mgarr Harbour, where the ferry from Malta arrives, a number of recognized car rental companies
    There are sights in the island that is not possible to reach by puclic buses and if you have a car you can easily get to the spot

    The sightseeing bus is very convenient if traveling to Gozo without a car, if you want to discover the small island and want to see all the sights in a short time, this bus comes very handy, the bus route stop to major attractions and easy to hop-on- off anytime

    When you get off the ferry in Mgarr harbour, just a few meters walk from the port you can hop-on to the tour bus and purchase your ticket in the bus itself

    1 Day Unlimited Travel Ticket
    Adults: €15.00

    Easy to recognise the color

    Buses service in Gozo is slow, is not reliable if you use the public buses to get around the islands
    It can take a while in some places to catch the bus, so better not to rely on them
    A regular service runs to and from Mgarr ferry terminal

    We usually hate this kind of tours, but in Gozo it was an good idea. The local buses didn´t run so often, and some of them didn´t drive at March at all. So this was easiest way to see the island, after we decided not to rent a car. Maybe at Gozo it would have been easy to drive, but at Malta main island the traffic was quite grazy and driving at left is allways little strange if you aren´t used to do it. So..we choosed not to do that. It was little strange, because we allways have rented a car in this kind of places.
    In some places we had to much time. And in some others, we could have used more. At Blue window, the bus didn´t go near at all (maybe they will one day again, there was some road works going on) and it took a long time to walk there. Luckily one Swiss coupple offered us a drive back to bus, because we might have missed the last bus to harbour without them!
    You will have headphones to listen what they say about the sights. There´s 8 languages to choose from. Not Finnish ;)

    Gozo-Airport Bus Shuttle Service

    by Xemx Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're arriving by plane and going straight to Gozo, a bus shuttle service is now available from Malta International Airport to Cirkewwa where you can board the ferry to Gozo.

    As this is a new service, initially there will only be eight return trips and run during the summer months, until September.

    Tickets costs Lm 2.15 (Eur 5) per person / per trip and can be purchased on board. Seats may also be pre-booked by using the Gozo Channel telephone number or email address found in the Contacts section below. A time-table is available on the Gozo Channel website.

    BE IN GOZO ISLAND IN 15 MINS

    Ferry to Gozo

    The ideal way to travel to the sister Island of Gozo is from Cirkewwa Harbor in the north part of MALTA by Ferry and only a 15 min crossing time.
    It will cost you only about 4 Euros each passenger and if you take the car its about 13 Euros including the driver.....not bad for another destination besides MALTA!

    All Buses Lead to Victoria!

    by Xemx Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gozo Bus

    The best way to see Gozo is definitely by car and not by bus...at least, that's what I think! The traffic may be rather chaotic in the capital, Victoria, but it's nowhere near what it's like in Malta and once you get out into the open spaces it is pleasant driving. If you still want to use the bus service and see all the major attractions, then allow more than one day in Gozo.

    Buses are infrequent and the last one is usually around 7pm or even earlier...so if you don't want to walk to Mgarr Harbour, or spend the night in Gozo, think early! You can pick up a time-table at the main bus terminus in Victoria. There doesn't seem to be one available online at the time of writing this tip. The Mgarr Harbour (Ferry) bus no. 25, leaves Victoria 30 minutes before each ferry departure and the last bus from Mgarr to Victoria is 7.15pm (Mon to Fri). The link below provides the bus number and route information.

    Ferry Malta-Gozo

    by mabu Updated Apr 4, 2011
    Mgarr Harbour view from the Helicopter

    The most common way of getting to Gozo is using the Ferry from Cirkewwa (Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo). The boats operate on a regular scedule.
    The ferrys transport passengers and cars between the two islands.

    You only pay using the ferry from Gozo to Malta, you need to go back anyway.... (unless you use the Helicopter).
    From the Harbour Mgarr there are regular busses to Victoria.

    bus stop next to ferry

    Buses on Gozo don't run as often as on Malta island. Buses are grey and wait just outside the ferry terminal (line no. 25). They wisk you to Victoria for Euro 0.47. Unfortunately, we didn't get to ride on the old bus on photo no. 1 but on a coach like bus. Not all the drivers give you change.

    At Victoria bus station there is an information booth where they can give you a timetable for the island. We took a bus to Xlendi (pronounce Shlendy) which is no. 87.

    When taking the bus back from Xlendi, we all had to get off before the bus terminus because the driver had his work finished and took his bus straight home.

    Alternatives to buses are:
    1. Take a hire car from Malta to Gozo
    2. Use the hop on hop off bus for your tour of Gozo. This is good if you want to see it all in a short time ie if you don't get off, the tour takes 150 minutes and costs Euro 15.00.
    3. Use your own feet (we did from Victoria to Xewkija)
    4. Hire a bicycle (possible on Malta for sure, on Gozo I don't know)

    passing the other ferry

    There is plenty of space for foot passengers on the ferry either in the café or outside with a good view to take pictures.

    On Malta you can buy your return ticket for Euro 4.65 (tourist price in Nov. 2010) but you can also wait and do it before your return trip from Gozo as tickets are only checked on the return trip.

    On the Malta side you board the ferry through the big opening like the cars. Then you either go up the stairs or take the lift (only on the right side of the ferry) if you have walking problems. On Gozo you leave the ferry from the passenger deck upstairs onto a covered walkway, then down an escalator.

    Jeep Tour

    Dave a nd our jeep for the day

    With just one day on the island and wanting to get a good overview of the sights we decided to book a jeep tour. Although a bit of a bone shaker it did allow us to travel on roads that the buses would not be able to - it was certainly rough surfaces by the salt pans in the north of Gozo. Cheaper bus tours are available but this was more fun plus as the only 2 in the jeep our guide (provided with the tour and very knowledgable of the area despite his South Wales accent!) allowed us to stop where ever we wanted for a pic and was flexible with time stops - longer here, shorter there the choice was ours. A great day out and with the blue skies and sunshine a highlight of our trip to the Maltese islands. Cost was about £50 for two people

    Gozo Channel Ferry

    by johnmperry Updated Aug 18, 2008

    When you take the ferry from Malta island to Gozo, the fare charged is the return fare. There is no ticket office on Gozo - you just get on. So it is perfectly allowed to board in Gozo, not get off in Malta, then ride the ferry back on its return voyage. That's a good hour's ride on an air-conditioned boat, for free!

    The ferry also goes to Valetta three times a week. That's an easy way of getting there, but not of getting back (since it returns almost straight away). or you can just stay on board then too, and have a 3½ hour cruise - for free!
