What people are saying about Limassol District

This was a shore excursion from Limassol, Cyprus. The company reached out with he driver's name and contact info and his contact number and then sent a picture of the vehicle on the morning of the tour. Our guide, Cemal was excellent. He knew how to navigate around the crazy traffic and knew lots of historical and cultural information about the country where he was born. He was always mindful of the schedule and managed to fit in all the sites even though our day was a short one! I would highly recommend this company and Cemal.

Great tour of 'the other side of Cyprus'!

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.
