“We specialise in outgoing tours. Our aim is to provide affordable good quality tours. We are proud to form part of the main tour operators in Malta. Sensitive to our clients’ needs, we constantly strive to find new destinations whilst improving our established tours.”
Hamilton Travel was founded in April 1992 when Norman R. Hamilton, a well-known TV and radio personality, organised the first out-going tour to Euro Disney and Paris under the new company’s name. In fact, Disneyland Paris remains Hamilton Travel’s flagship, even now, 21 years after its opening.
