What people are saying about Nicosia

Very interesting tour to get to know Nicosia while learning more about the history of the (divided) city and island. Nicosia itself is not a beautiful city in my opinion, but there are many beautiful places to explore that you might not even find with a travel guide. With the whole history (starting with the city wall from the Middle Ages) to the separation and the border crossings and UN-no man's land historically very interesting and city tour with Mrs. Wörmann highly recommended. Did a 3 hour tour.

Iliana is a very passionate and authentic person, she is a great guide. I had a memorable time discovering the hidden gems of the city with her. It felt like walking with a friend I knew before. I highly recommend a tour with her.

We did really enjoy the visit, 2 hours full of history, personal experiences from an engaged person who spent big part of her life in this city. Warmly recommended.

It was insanely interesting. We learned a lot about the history of the city and Cyprus. Simply great Thank you very much to Ute!

As always with GetyourGuide, it was absolutely great! From booking to making contact to the guided tour itself! TOP!!!!
