It was a great and easy way to explore Cyrus! Our tour guide was amazing and all of the food was delicious!! She took us to prominent cypriot locations and indulged us in its history. Her knowledge of the region only bolstered her credibility and our appreciation.

Highly recommend this day trip! The communication from the tour company, our guide Theodora and the selection of local food and wine stops were all excellent. I would do this again in one of the other regions on the island on my next visit.
