The guide was welcoming and gave us lots of information about Cyprus. Can’t believe how much we packed into the day. Really enjoyed the monasteries, the Trodos mountains, wine tasting, lunch, traditional village and finished off with a fabulous beach sunset. A fabulous day and so lovely to see more of Cyprus. Excellent value for money!

Well worth the money

Dave was brilliant. Kept us engaged, extremely knowledgeable and a great sense of humour. Great trip and lives up to its name as we saw plenty of hidden gems, the painted church was amazing! Lunch was lovely, and filling. Highly recommended.

Excellent itinerary. Prompt pick up. Excellent guide /driver. Extremely cramped vehicle for the 7 people especially with the Covid 19 risks.

I liked the tour very much, we visited beautiful places with a good guide Tatiana, thank you

Very nice guides, we especially liked Omodos, all in all great tour :) Highly recommended!
