Male City Tour

Short Tours (2Hours)

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

Short tours are for those guests who has some waiting time at Male Airport between international and domestic flights/boats.The airport is located in the south edge of Male atoll, in-between Male city and Huhumale, which are also the only connected lands to the airport. All other islands are separated by the ocean, which makes most of the visitor 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 have added time, as sometime the when the sea gets rough, it can be a slow ride. With all these reasons, many travelers have 2-5 hours of waiting time at the Male airport. So why wait in the airport? when you have the most populous and capital city of the Maldives next to you, within 10 minutes distance and we (Local Guides) are here to pick you from airport, show 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.
