I had an incredible experience with Jürgen as our tour guide in the Troodos Mountains! From exploring the Alassa church to the enchanting Millomeris Waterfall and Medieval Millomeris Bridge, every moment was captivating. Jürgen's punctuality, politeness, and engaging conversations made the day delightful. The personalized tour allowed us to savor Omodos village and enjoy a fantastic wine tasting at Linos Winery. A memorable lunch provided the perfect opportunity to connect with Jürgen, and he surprised us with beautiful photos to cherish. His thoughtful drop-off closer to our next destination showcased his commitment to our convenience. Jürgen truly made our Cyprus introduction exceptional – a five-star guide!

In general, the trip was very nice and the guide did a good job, but the route was too fast and there was not enough time for everything. I understand that you need to make time, but sightseeing on the run is a bad option. Maybe it will improve over time, overall I liked the trip and I recommend it because it's worth it. The air conditioning in the bus should be on all the time, but for us 22°-25° is hot and if you run to take photos, it's hard to sit in a stuffy bus.

This tour was amazing! A great way to see the area around the cities. Temmi (Our guide) were great - So polite and sweet towards everyone on the trip. Will easily recommend for everybody to go if you wish a more authentic experience on Cyprus. And don't eat too much from home, a lot of delicious food on this tour.

A wonderful day trip, we really enjoyed the visit to Kourion and Lemesos Castle, Limassol.

A museum where optics prevail. It's really worth it.
