What people are saying about Limassol District

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.

A very nice guide, and educated, tells you everything, what to eat, everything entertaining, and typical.2h very well used, and very enjoyable.Very recommendable Isabel, our guide.a pleasure
