From Limassol: Discover the West
- Duration: 7 hours
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.
Cyprus is separated into two countries. Most people only see the south/Greek side. But the northern/Turkish side is fascinating too! The Kyrenia castle is HUGE and has an interesting history (e.g. Richard the Lionhearted). Also there is the Girne shipwreck from c300BC. Our driver was knowledgeable, and also fun.
While the guide was great we had a problem with the meeting point. As a result we had a late start. However we covered central Limassol. Sunday morning was probably not the best time to go as most things were shut.
The guide Alexia was very helpful with booking further 2 bus tours for me, thanks! I would prefer some typical souvenir shopping opportunities, maybe a stop in the mountain resorts?
Andrea was our guide and she was great. Good selection of wineries, very good wine and just a lovely day out. We included the optional picnic which was definitely worth it.
