Really good informative trip, it was nice knowing about the history of Paphos and the surrounding areas. Both driver and guide were lovely and friendly. Would recommend this trip as I think it’s good value for money and nice to see other areas but wouldn’t recommend it for families with young children I think they might get a little bored.

Our companion was Anna. She speaks very good English, explains in detail and is very organized. It was a nice trip and an interesting food tour. Would highly recommend the tour.

A very great and interesting tour through the Trodos Mountains with great stops. The planning and implementation of the tour went smoothly.

A fantastic trip, with delicious lunch consisting of local dishes. Cozy little company of 5 people and a skilled guide Theodora.

Absolutely magnificent experience. Very good host, Love it.
