        Relaxing time and good wine
        Very nice village in the Limassol Cyprus. Is a oasis of quietness and chill especially if there is a hot summer day. ☀️. In the center there are few restaurants, I really recommend to try the local 🍷 🍷 🍷 (white, rose and red), and order some mezze. Enjoy your time in Troodos

        A really lovely day out
        A very interesting trip our Tui guide Maria was wonderful do knowledgeable and funny. We had a shirt trip to Bellapais Abbey which was beautiful. The harbour in Kyrenia was very pretty. Lots of walking which could be hard with limited mobility . An interesting walk through the border in Nicosia from Turkush to Greek side.We ended the evening with a traditional meal as a group which was lovely . Definitely recommended.

        Awesome day out
        Lovely day out would definitely recommend. Our driver Rick was lovely, shared information about the island and was genuinely a nice guy. Made some memories we'll never forget (where's the sick bag?!) advisable for those who suffer with travel sickness to take a bag and not to travel in the back of yh vehicle sitting sideways 😆

        A must to go on.
        Very informative tour guide. Enough time given to explore freely. Stunning places taken to and well worth the money spent on the trip.

        Relaxed boat trip
        Good value for money, drinks, food and service on the boat were great. Not much to see or do, but was a nice day out! Only improvement would be clearer on pick up/meeting point. They only pick ip from three hotels, luckily we were near the old port so was easy for us to walk to where the boat actually was, however the communication via Tripadvisor messaging on where exactly to meet the boat could have been better.

        Fantastic Day. Would recommend.
        Excellent day. Would very much recommend. Great boat, Friendly staff, Excellent bar and lunch. Would definitely go again. The only slight negative was a bit if confusion at the pick up point. The Coach said Relax Cruises in the window. Turns out that its this company that run this trip. It does not state this on the ticket anywhere so we spent a few minutes trying to work out if it was the correct trip.

        Best service Catamaran cruise ever!!!
        An excellent boat trip with 5 star service, staff are always checking if you would like anything, constantly refreshing your drinks and polite. They provide excellent ambient music and entertainment and I’m sure there will always be someone dancing by the end of the day. The food provided was excellent and when we went to the lower deck to have it there were plenty of large tables and chairs set up, it was almost like being at a wedding venue. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend.

        Good trip far too much walking for a disabled person. Guide great but heat was unbearable as its hotter inland for those that don't cope with that worth remembering. I have fibromyalgia so it was too much for me.

      Lovely day out, regular stops along the way for breaks. Famagusta old town is lovely but don’t buy any of the replica clothes/bags because customs get on the coach when you cross back over the border and there is a hefty fine if you do buy these Turkish goods!

      The tour started late due to the rain and stormy weather. I was not informed that the bus would be coming later and had to call the offices to confirm if the tour was still on. But the tour itself was great. The weather eventually cleared up and we had a great time. The guide was very informative and answered all questions. We had good time to enjoy the places.
      But we were not given tickets to the entrance of one of the sites. We did not have currency to buy a ticket and when we asked the guide about a currency exchange place , then he told us that he had tickets and it was included. This lack of info and poor communication lost us some time to explore the site.
      But the overall tour was great. Friendly and helpful guide. Good information about the history. Enjoyed it alot.

      Me and my husband took a day guided trip to the Salamis Ancient Kingdom and Famagusta during our stay in Limassol. We were taken through the very interesting and dramatic history of Famagusta and North Cyprus by our incredible guide Andri. What a well presented and full of facts story!!!! Andri’s personality and deep knowledge of the topic were impressive. The trip lasted about 7-8 hours, covering the key points as it was advertised (including the fresh juice of pomegranate 😊), free time was given for breaks and individual exploration, the whole trip was well-organised with a good time keeping and comfortable transport. We highly recommend it to anyone with an adventurous spirit, love of history and new experience.

      Unfortunately we hadn't had the chance to go on that trip. We had a delay of 15 min due to public transport connections but texted them in advance and tried to call them. At the hotel nobody was there - the receptionist had no idea of that tour and we couldn't reach anyone. In hope they might be late or we get a message, we waited there 40 minutes. After we realized they would probably not come back and with having no signal from them, we cancelled the trip.

      We are so sad because two days before that trip we've booked another trip with the same organisation. They had then around 20 min delay and the hotel said they always were late. This experience was just bizarre. And the most dissappointing part is we didnt get our money back, just an email that we were late and also due to the early cancellation, they cant help us. So sad, it was our last day and we lost time because of that waiting and not knowing what is going on. At least we would have wished to be contacted..

      We had looked forward to do this specific tour during our stay in Cyprus. Initially our booking was cancelled but was moved to a different pickup location.
      Before boarding it came to our attention that Passports of Canadians are not accepted at this specific checkpoint so we were unable to do this tour based on what the tour guide told us.

      The description of the tour specifically stated that "Passport or EU ID card required" Most would think that any passport from a developed country would be enough but apparently you need to be a EU resident in order to proceed with the tour.

      The company was quick to issue a refund which was greatly appreciated.

      Thank you for this experience! The bus was on time. The guide and the driver made an effort to find me at the hotel, ensured not to leave without picking me up. The trip itself was easy, pleasant, lovely orange juice, beautiful scenery. The guide's commentary was full of interesting, heart-touching and useful information on the sites that we visited and the history of Cyprus overall. The trip was well-planned to be carried out at a relaxed pace, with two hours also provided as free time to wander around the old city and enjoy some lunch and a Turkish coffee. The guide gave plenty of tips on how to best spend this time.
      I would definitely recommend this tour. One remark - wear comfortable shoes, put on plenty of sunscreen/ perhaps long-sleeved top, take water, and avoid going when its too hot because all sites are open under direct sunlight.

      Booked this tour via Viatour, and it was also the same tour as TUI, from my hotel. But cheaper :D
      Christopher was a very good tour guide, informative and answered any questions.
      Famagusta was a very poignant moment of the tour.
