Male City Private Walking Tour
Yekholyah, 22-10-2019
I never do tours or guided anything, when traveling and decided to try this tour. It was AMAZING! I was the only one on the tour and literally got more than what I paid for. My tour guide was Hussein. He was incredible - very knowledge-able about the city, the history, and the Maldives period. The tour included: the walk (of course), a painting class/souvenir shop, and passing through the local market. We went to the President's house, King's palace, 2-3 different mosques, artificial beach, Sultan Park, lawmaker's building (forgot the actual name), police quarters, a cemetery, and more. My favorite was drinking FRESH water from the well at the ancient mosque. Hussein was very open to answering questions about the country and culture. I learned so much during my time. This is definitely a must do. If you're ever in town there, you can personally reach Hussein at +960 790 3001. He would love to show you around. I'll definitely be in contact, when I go back.
Was hesitant to take this tour since...

Was hesitant to take this tour since we had walked the city that morning. Streets are packed with motorcycles going in every direction and no stop signals or signs.

Guide was excellent- He had good knowledge of city , history and best place for tea.

highlight was going to art school.

Good Information about Male and Maldives

We took this tour before we left Maldives. We were able to check our bags at the airport and then get a taxi to the pick up point.

The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of both Male and the Maldives. We liked eating some of the local food, though we had been in Maldives for a week so had had some at the hotel.

We did NOT like the art experience and would have preferred to do something else. They had us paint step by step a Maldives island. I don't need painting lessons and I don't need some small, not very good painting I made. A visit to another spot to learn more about history would have been preferred.
Really a good tour

I really enjoyed this tour. You get to see some of the interesting sites around Male. Geographically it does not cover a lot of ground but you get a good sense of the area.
Half day Tour in Male city

Although we are late to attend due to delay on sea plane flying. They are very well to prepare another time for us but eventually we didn't attend. It is so good for their services.
