What people are saying about Nicosia

After the meeting point (quite simply in Nicosia directly after the border crossing in the old town) was agreed, we could start. During the trip, Cem first told a lot of interesting things about Cyprus and the division. First to the St. Barnabas monastery (quite nice, but not much different from other older monasteries) and here again interesting information about the origin. Then to Salamis (old Romans) - also quite nice. Then to visit the ghost town. Really strange atmosphere in such a large, completely empty and slowly decaying city (unique experience and difficult to describe). Finally Famagusta there the mosque (converted former church), on the city wall and free time to eat (good recommendation) and sightseeing on your own. Great day trip!

This was a shore excursion from Limassol, Cyprus. The company reached out with he driver's name and contact info and his contact number and then sent a picture of the vehicle on the morning of the tour. Our guide, Cemal was excellent. He knew how to navigate around the crazy traffic and knew lots of historical and cultural information about the country where he was born. He was always mindful of the schedule and managed to fit in all the sites even though our day was a short one! I would highly recommend this company and Cemal.

Cool castle that visually merges almost seamlessly into the rocks. Magnificent view after you have made the climb. Afterwards nice village of Bellapais and monastery there (nice, but the highlight is St. Hilarion). Transfer and information about Cyprus/Northern Cyprus also great.

The tour is really recommended. Smooth booking and implementation. great guide
