Really good tour. Liked the pace of the trip, we never felt rushed. Guide and driver were terrific, very good fun. You get four really good stops, first is Kourion and second is Kolossi (optional), both great ancient sites. The highlights for us came on the second half of the tour. We got 2.5 hours in Limassol, which is a fantastic city, enough time for a wander, a nice meal and a walk along the coast. Stops at Aphrodites Rock on the way back. It’s really good value as well, we worked out the cost of the tour for two people is about the same as a taxi return to Aphrodites Rock from Paphos, so it feels like a no brainer. At about 7 hours as well, it’s an ideal length for a tour. Comfortable coach with air con, and superb on time pick up and drop off, five star.

I highly recommend the tour, it was honestly such a fun day. Demi was amazing and very friendly, she made us all feel welcomed as I was a solo traveller I was a bit worried going alone but trust me it was worth it. A bit of advice make sure not to have a heavy breakfast, maybe coffee and toast as you will be eating all day. If I was to come back I would doing the tour and brining all my family. The day was a bit grey as I came end of March so make sure to take a jumper/light rain coat if you travelling around March. Thanks again team, and special thanks to Sophia who picked me up from the hotel such a lovely person. 5 star plus for the full experience.

Thanks Panikos. The tour was great. It was full of interesting stops. Delicious food and wine, beautiful views, good guide. Next time I’m in Cyprus, I’ll be happy to write and go on another excursion of yours.
