Rolling Geeks Tour
Geeks on Wheels! Rolling Geeks Malta is an innovative way to tour the culturally rich Cottonera area south of Grand Harbour at your own pace.
From just £55 per vehicle (holds up to 4 passengers, based on 2 adults & 2 children, 3rd & 4th adult additional £10 per person) this is the perfect way to see the culturally rich Cottonera area of Malta south of Grand Harbour at your own pace with your feet up.
Tourists and locals alike can rent electric-powered cars equipped with a pre-programmed GPS system that guides them on their route while supplying a running commentary of the notable landmarks and cultural places of interest.
The electric cars are silent, eco-friendly, easy to drive and enable people to explore the magnificent Cottonera area while stopping to take in whatever catches their fancy, including a dip in the sea.
The name Rolling Geeks came about because, like true geeks, the cars spend their time pursuing and sharing their passion, which is to share their knowledge of the area in a highly technological manner along the entire 18-km route. The fact that they move around on wheels makes them Rolling Geeks.
The standard Rolling Geeks tour Malta lasts two and a half hours and takes in three of the most culturally rich cities in Malta, enabling you to see more than you would do in a whole day on foot. Commentary is provided English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Russian and Mandarin. Each electric car is comprehensively insured and a small bottle of mineral water per person is included.
The tour is suitable for all ages, although the driver has to be 21 and hold a driver’s licence. The electric cars can be rented by individuals or groups, and used for corporate events, weddings and any local event requiring a shuttle service.
The 4x4 electric cars seat four persons and have a 60-km range with fully loaded batteries. The 5.4 Kw engine is powered by eight 6v batteries and the top speed has been limited to 25 km/h. These right-hand-drive cars weigh just 600 kg and are fully road homologated. The rear bench can be removed to accommodate luggage or a picnic table.
Thanks to the unique system, via GPS, not only is there real time direction on where to go but there is a virtual ‘guide’ pointing out the places of interest and some cultural aspects of the route.
The system also enables each vehicle to be tracked from the office so that clients on tour can be assisted where necessary. Clients can contact the office at any point in time via an SOS button which enables the users to communicate problems or the need for assistance via a small microphone and speaker. The cars also have winter covers for the colder months.
