Nine Heritage Malta attractions have received the 2020 Travellers’ Choice Award from Tripadvisor in recognition of their outstanding service and quality. The results of this coveted award programme were based on the quality and quantity of the millions of reviews, opinions and ratings collected on Tripadvisor in 2019, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Heritage Malta attractions which have received this prestigious award are the megalithic temples of Ħaġar Qim and Ġgantija, the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, St Paul’s Catacombs, Fort St Angelo and Fort St Elmo (including the National War Museum), the National Museum of Archaeology, the Palace Armoury and Ta’ Kola Windmill.
These awards form part of the ongoing effort of Tripadvisor, which is the world’s largest travel platform, to support the recovery of the tourism and hospitality industry following the difficulties experienced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Tripadvisor’s view, through this programme, travellers can benefit from the real-life experiences of other people so that they can plan their perfect trip which meets their needs, budget and style. Winners of the Travellers’ Choice Awards consistently earn great reviews from travellers and are ranked within the top 10% of the sites on Tripadvisor.
“When considering how tough this year has been to our industry, such news encourages us to strive harder in order to keep ensuring the best service to our visitors. We’re passionate about our cultural heritage and these awards reflect our aim to excel in what we do,” said Heritage Malta CEO, Noel Zammit.
