What people are saying about Nicosia District

Overall a great tour! Our guide was very nice, there was a lot of information about the area and history of Ayia Napa and everything was very relaxed. It was great fun to drive the jeep over sandy slopes and stony terrain and at the end a great panoramic view just before sunset! The tour is worthwhile to experience the southeast of the island!

If there are Academy Awards for travel guides and travel companies then I would like to nominate Helena and Cyprus Taste Tours! I had an amazing Sunday filled with stories about local people & culture, fun encounters with local food and much more. Highly recommended!

Mayra was such a great guide! We went to three different wineries, loved the snacks in between. Very happy we booked the tour, especially since we were only 4 people (which made the tour very personal)

The tour was spectacular as we are travelers that wanted rest and relaxation. Most of all we have enjoyed the wine and the beautiful hospitality from the Cypriots as well as our tour guide.

Some great scenery and history at St Hilarion and Old Nicosia - very enjoyable day and Gemma the guide was very knowledgeable
