  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included

What You Can Expect

Begin with pickup at your Paphos hotel, then travel into the rugged Troodos Mountains, the island’s largest mountain range. Make your first stop at the Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, a mountain enclave that’s dedicated to ‘Our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate,’ and has long produced distinctive wines from the surrounding vineyards.

Continue to Kykkos Monastery, which was founded in the 11th century by Byzantine emperor Alexios I Komnenos. The picturesque monastery contains an icon of the Virgin Mary that’s never uncovered, as legend has it that anyone who sees it will be blinded. Visit the nearby tomb of Archbishop Makarios III, the first president of Cyprus, who served as an apprentice monk at the monastery and asked to be buried there.

Enjoy some free time to find lunch in a local village (own expense), then follow mountain roads to Mount Olympus, and visit Troodos Square to try locally-grown produce. Enter the small community of Omodos—this is often called Cyprus’ prettiest village—and see the Monastery of the Holy Cross before making the return trip to Paphos, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

I was really surprised that they ran the tour as there was only 4 of us. I had a splendid day and the tou guide was not only very knowledgable but really friendly as well. Lunch although not included had been organised which was fine for me fixed menu at 12 including a drink but the other 3 people had bought a packed lunch. Don't know if this is the normal arrangement but if so, it should be specified somewhere in the documentation. However, have to say it was a fabulous meal especially for the value.
Would definately recommend.
