Malé City Tour

From a distance, Malé, the capital, looks like a floating city. It’s hard not to wonder how a third of the country’s population lives and thrives on such a diminutive island. We’ve created a tour that will give you the chance to drink in the spirit of the island, and get an insight into its culture and history.
