Simply amazing

Phivos was so knowledgeable about the country’s history, attractions and the nature, and is really passionate about giving travelers a great experience of Cyprus. The trip was so much more than what it says and what the pictures show on the website, the 11th/12th/13th-century UNESCO churches, the ‘bad-stone’ village and more, tell the living history of Cyprus. I can’t recommend this trip enough to people who are interested in exploring the mountainous, hidden-gem side of the island.
