It was a very nice tour. The communication was excellent, the timings for each location as well as our guide, Eleni, who shared very interesting insights as well as valuable personal stories. We really enjoyed the trip, all was smooth and better than expected given the rating of the tour. Just make sure you do not expect to stop at the ghost town because this is not included. But you will see it close enough from the bus.

The tour was great, we visited exciting places (Famagusta, Bellapais Abbey, Kyrenia) and our tour guide was very kind and provided us with the necessary information about the sights.

The pickup including the transport to Salamis and Famagusta was great. Great, friendly tour guide who provides information about the place, country and people. Would I book again!

Besides the great experience in Famagusta area, our guide was amazing. Very informative and always willing to serve us. Thank you Eleni and Kostas (bus driver)

Amazing experience and the best thing to do if you are here off season. 5 stars for our guide, his humor and energy.
