It was one of my top interesting day trip, although I knew already quite a lot, I learned much more additional about Cyprus than expected. Because of problems on my side, she could spontaneous change almost the complete tour. Really high professional. Thank you!

Not cheap, but very good value for money. The tour guide (Kemal) responded to individual requests and adjusted the program accordingly. Fascinating and informative, highly recommend!
