Paphos: Aphrodite Waterpark Admission

It didn’t start well, first in the email they said they picked us up at 8am at the hotel, the guide arrived there at 7.40am so we had to hurry. He asked if we had our passport but in the voucher they say bring passport OR ID so since we didn’t have passports we were worried about the Turkish border if they were gonna let us in but fortunately they did with ID too. We did a covid test also before the tour but nobody cared about it. After we arrived it got really good, our guide Georgie explained everything and answered all of our questions. He could really made us feel the emotions of the place since he has friends in Famagusta and his father’s place is in the ghost town. The tour was interesting and worth seeing it.

Nice tour on a well equipped catamaran. Lots of seating and lounging space. The crew is very friendly and makes every effort to ensure that the guests have a good time. Excellent selection of drinks and an amazingly varied lunch. Less suitable for snorkeling, however, since the bathing spots in the middle of the sea are far away from coasts and rocky reefs. The promised places were all approached and you had enough time in the water to cool off. In any case, the tour is also suitable for families. No party boat with loud music! All in all, you can have a very nice time here in good company while admiring the beauty of Cyprus' east coast.

Really good informative trip, it was nice knowing about the history of Paphos and the surrounding areas. Both driver and guide were lovely and friendly. Would recommend this trip as I think it’s good value for money and nice to see other areas but wouldn’t recommend it for families with young children I think they might get a little bored.

Wow that was wonderful experience, the crew were very helpful and friendly, exceed the satisfaction

I liked the tour very much, we visited beautiful places with a good guide Tatiana, thank you
