What people are saying about Nicosia

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.

we had a wonderful time and our guide Phivos was great and very patient with us being fist time snorkellers. we would highly recomend this and we were lucky enough to see some sea turtles too
