We didn't expect much and were pleasantly surprised. Pick up on time, guide Demetri is not only super friendly and takes great care of everyone, he also knows a lot about the island. The group was small, just six people, which was very pleasant. All the stops we made were interesting and the lunch was delicious. Great wineries with exciting wines to taste. The tour is not cheap, but we would do it again at any time. Many thanks to Demetri and Louisa in the office, it was an incredible first impression of the island!

This tour was amazing! A great way to see the area around the cities. Temmi (Our guide) were great - So polite and sweet towards everyone on the trip. Will easily recommend for everybody to go if you wish a more authentic experience on Cyprus. And don't eat too much from home, a lot of delicious food on this tour.

The trip was informative and educational. it was good that the guide had personal experience of the conflict we found the whole experience, moving and poignant we would certainly recommend this trip

Very good full day trip! Loved the halloumi making, beekeepers were great & donkey farm so much fun. (Olive oil tasting was not really my thing as host very loud & pushy.)

Excellent! Well worth the money, we even saw some big turtles! Towards the end, the staff had everyone up dancing. It was a lovely experience and well worth the money
