It was wonderful. We were there last year and booked it twice. The first time the water was unfortunately very turbulent. But the second time it was just us and Marina. It was the best experience we have ever had and we will definitely be back this year. Marina put in an incredible amount of effort and she radiated an incredible amount of serenity and calm. I hope we see and again.

Sophia, our guide, did a great job explaining to us about our different stops on the tour and also various facts about Paphos. The stops themselves were an interesting and tasty mix of history, traditional food and art, and local religion.

In a lifetime I don't think I'm going to find a more beautiful spot to want to spend swimming and relaxing could you stay there for days
