I had a great time with this Kykkos tour. I was planning to join with my friend, but he was feeling sick in the morning, and I had to participate alone. But I was never bored. Marina, the guide, explained a lot of the Cypriot history, culture, society, and politics, which was a great fun. The streets in the mountain villeges were incredibly narrow, but Ektras showed an excellent driving skill and I enjoyed the whole trip. The tomb of the first president Makarios is a must-see.
