It was really lovely for the price. The guide lady spoke very well English and told us all we needed to know. Great 2 hours in Limassol so we have had lots of time to eat and just enjoy our free time. Lovely places to see especially Aphrodite’s Rock. Really recommend it!

It was a great and easy way to explore Cyrus! Our tour guide was amazing and all of the food was delicious!! She took us to prominent cypriot locations and indulged us in its history. Her knowledge of the region only bolstered her credibility and our appreciation.

Excellent tour! Lovely trip up into the mountains along with two wineries and a village tour with lunch. Definitely recommend.
