Our tour guide and driver were lovely. The winery was first class and the owner himself made us all very welcome. His wine and nibbles were delicious. This was followed by an awesome Cypriot meal in a mountain village. Would have been handy for a pick up at Akrotiri as we had a 45 minute drive to start the trip. Kolossi castle, (the first stop) was only 15 mins away. The driver was accommodating on the way home and dropped us off. However, Well worth the money for a wonderful taste of Cyprus. Would definitely use this company again next time I come to visit my daughter.

Phivos was an excellent host! Learned and observed many things! Yesterday’s excursion was also excellent

Very interesting

So much history and historical sites Would come back again to paphos and explore leisurely
