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!

We had really nice day out. Lady called Tatjana who introduced us everything about places we went was fantastic. Can ask more. Very satisfied
