Good price to quality ratio. A whole day trip with pick-up/drop-off and wine tasting + boat trip and guide. Would recommend. Nice views, great wine, good guide, excellent information about the island, stops that are must-visit on the list and finishing with a good boat ride and swim in the blue lagoon. Fun day out and you dont have to drive yourself.

Overall a great tour! Our guide was very nice, there was a lot of information about the area and history of Ayia Napa and everything was very relaxed. It was great fun to drive the jeep over sandy slopes and stony terrain and at the end a great panoramic view just before sunset! The tour is worthwhile to experience the southeast of the island!

The guide was welcoming and gave us lots of information about Cyprus. Can’t believe how much we packed into the day. Really enjoyed the monasteries, the Trodos mountains, wine tasting, lunch, traditional village and finished off with a fabulous beach sunset. A fabulous day and so lovely to see more of Cyprus. Excellent value for money!

The tour was spectacular as we are travelers that wanted rest and relaxation. Most of all we have enjoyed the wine and the beautiful hospitality from the Cypriots as well as our tour guide.

Great fun and a great way to see some of the real Cyprus.
