The actual coach Journey was quite long and we spent more time on the coach than at the sites. The journey up & through the mountains gave me vertigo, so I felt really ill. We only had around 30 minutes maximum at each site and it all felt rather rushed. There were some older people that didn't even get into some of the sites as they physically couldn't walk that fast or uphill, which a lot of it was so their day was sat on benches. Also, the winery was a complete waste of time for us non drinkers and again we sat on benches outside while the others raced through a few sips of wine before boarding the coach again. It also would have been much nicer to eat at Omodos village rather than some random restaurant on the side of the road while fighting of the bees that swarmed around the food. The food was nice however. We did enjoy the sites, but it was all too rushed. Maybe get rid of the winery and roadside restaurant and spend more time at the sites and eat in the village.

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!
