The setting is beautiful, with higher water flow during the rainy season and with more greenery in summer when the alders have their leaves and the bracken are full of life.

What people are saying about Ayia Napa

A day before you get the exact pick-up time so no waiting at the pick-up point. A new minibus then picked us up on time. The tour had many different tastes and information on how the products are made. That's why you should be open to new things for this tour. The highlight is certainly the lunch, with many different local dishes. We also liked the contact with the manufacturers, sometimes in their private rooms, which you don't have otherwise. A great day!

A very nice and well thought out tour. The three tastings all have their own charm and make the day very varied. Anna guided us through the day in a very entertaining and courteous manner. The stop in the village of Omodos rounded off the day. The food was varied and incredibly delicious. Thank you for a wonderful day.
