Our guide, Myra, gave us a very nice day. She is a very good driver, very friendly and taught us a lot about Cyprus. We visited 3 wineries, a monastery and had a nice lunch with a nice view. The wineries were well chosen. You tasted very different wines, you also got the chance to buy something, but nothing was forced on you. The owners of the first 2 wineries were real connoisseurs and did their job with passion. In the last winery we had some bad luck: the owner was not present and the nephew and niece ran the business that day and did so with little dedication. We had a super fun day! Well worth it for wine tasters! The promise “in a small group” is certainly fulfilled. We were only 3 of us private tour!

Fun day with plenty of time per activity. The guide knew how to add nice info and also left the opportunity to enjoy the area.

Beautiful monuments, good explanation of the situation. No hassle at the border crossing

We love it. Totally recommend for those who like hiking and amazing views.

A very enjoyable and interesting trip. Zero reservations. I recommend.
