We wanted a small group and got a place in a TUI bus - mass processing over 50 pax. We could have booked the tour with the TUI travel agency

Professional tour of Salamis and Famagusta

Everything worked great! The bus was in a very good condition and the tour guide very competent with very good and above all understandable English. There are also somewhat cheaper offers, but the quality is right here.
