A truly memorable day, a feast for the eyes, worth every penny.
I really enjoyed this excursion. The Troodos mountains were stunning and I was relieved that the coach driver was a good driver in view of the hair raising hairpin bends and sheer drops from the road at moments....
The coach picked us up from outside our hotel and after collecting everybody else from their hotels we boldly set forth.
Our guides were informative and very interesting and pointed out places of interest along the way.
My only sadness was that there were so many tourists at the monasteries that one couldn't really soak up or appreciate them enough but I think as an introductory taster they were fine.
We had an absolutely delicious and wonderful lunch in the mountain village (I cannot remember the name of it sadly but I was very pleased to also 'find' the icon I wanted to buy where I hadn't felt compelled to by one at Kykkos to my surprise. An icon will 'call you' and it was one in a sale in a shop that called me....
Really enjoyed it, would go again.
