Short Tours (2Hours)

Do you have 2 hours of waiting at Male' Airport or Male' city?

Short tours are specially for those guests who have some waiting time at male international airport between international and domestic flights/boats. The airport is located in the south edge of Male atoll, in-between Male city and Huhumale city, which are also the only connected airport island. All other islands are separated by the ocean, which makes most of the visitors to take a domestic flight, seaplane or a boat in most cases. sadly this requires some waiting time both on arrival and departures, especially if you take a domestic flight, even with speedboats, many resorts in Male atoll have added time, as sometimes when the sea gets rough, it can be a slow ride.

For all these reasons, many travelers have 2-5 hours of waiting time at the Male airport. So why wait at the Maldives international airport? when you have the most populous and capital city of Maldives next to you, within 10 minutes distance and we (Local Guides) are here to pick you up from the airport, show you around the city and its most important sites and after the tour we will drop back you to the airport or another location in Male Maldives.
