What people are saying about Larnaca District

Our guide, Myra, gave us a very nice day. She is a very good driver, very friendly and taught us a lot about Cyprus. We visited 3 wineries, a monastery and had a nice lunch with a nice view. The wineries were well chosen. You tasted very different wines, you also got the chance to buy something, but nothing was forced on you. The owners of the first 2 wineries were real connoisseurs and did their job with passion. In the last winery we had some bad luck: the owner was not present and the nephew and niece ran the business that day and did so with little dedication. We had a super fun day! Well worth it for wine tasters! The promise “in a small group” is certainly fulfilled. We were only 3 of us private tour!

Hotel pickup just after 8am. A total of 7 people plus driver/Guido in a minibus. Approximately 1 hour drive to the Troodos Mountains. Stops at a monastery, wine tasting and sightseeing, visit to a small museum with explanations and shopping for local products. A hike through the village of Lefkara (known for silver and handicrafts). Finally, a Cypriot coffee and sandwiches with halloumi. 5 hours in total (plus the 2 hours round trip). Nice tour.

Very great private customized tour. The guide is very nice and tells a lot about the island. Can just be recommended!

Stop looking — AND BOOK THIS. Honestly, this one of the best tours I’ve ever taken. Anna is a 5 star tour guide.

We love it. Totally recommend for those who like hiking and amazing views.
