The day trip to the Troodos mountains was truly one of the highlights of our trip. Lizza was a wonderful host, funny, smart and engaging, she kept us all truly entertained and informed throughout. Both the villages we visited were picturesque and we had the opportunity to visit cafes and restaurants to get an authentic taste of Cyprus. The wine tasting was also a highlight, the opportunity to sample high quality wines from a family owned vineyard was wonderful. Our host during the wine sampling was also engaging and the wines themselves were very affordably priced.

It was really good trip to the Troodos mountain and village visits. Also we saw beautiful waterfall and our guide with bus driver were amazing and really smart.

Great trip! IT was nice to visit 3 wineries which were so different from each other. All of the wineries were very nice and our guide Helena was amazing.
