Great tour of 'the other side of Cyprus'!

Cyprus is separated into two countries. Most people only see the south/Greek side. But the northern/Turkish side is fascinating too! The Kyrenia castle is HUGE and has an interesting history (e.g. Richard the Lionhearted). Also there is the Girne shipwreck from c300BC. Our driver was knowledgeable, and also fun.

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