Indeed Famagusta is one of the best selling tours.

The tour was very well organised and the coach was comfortable. Every site we visited was well worth the long drive and our guide, Maria, was full of facts, stories and anecdotes which brought the rich history and cultural heritage of the island to life. Fascinating and informative from start to finish.

Firstly, I do these types of tours wherever I travel and Oola is definitely in the bracket of those who are excellent and the best of the best at what they do. She was on the coach when we boarded at the start and that made a big difference ( I did another tour and with another guide and it was not like this), she also knew when to talk, how much information give and got the balance perfect so that you could still talk amongst yourselves but gave us pertinent information. She was very approachable and had her own little witty jokes that made us laugh. I will add for anyone who isnt aware it's a dual language tour so they also had a Russian guide that translated. The tour was so well organised from start to finish - the driver came exactly at 7.40 like quoted, in crossing the border checkpoints ( one going out and two on coming back) it was a methodical process and there was more than enough time at each site to hear information, walk around, shop and take pictures. One thing that was also well organised was the idea of the 3 course lunch (with a glass of wine) for 12 euros. By placing our orders on the bus it meant that food was ready when we arrived and gave us more time to explore once we'd finished eating. On the way back Oola again understood that people would have that lull and so she kept talking to the minimum, she was also very clear about what would happen for those who has been picked up by mini bus in the morning and clearly advised in what order everyone would be dropped off in. Even though, it is a long day in theory, the excellent organisation between the driver and guides made for a seamless experience so that you didn’t realise how long the day actually was. A big shout out to the driver Adamas / Adamos and he was equally very friendly. No hesitation in recommending this tour at all

Picked up at 8.00am from Paphos-note 2hr trip to get to border checkpoint-Did stop for a quick coffee/toilet break on way-much needed.Do not forget passport.First stop after checkpoint was Salamis -a must see -pleae note seeing theatre,then gymnasium /baths is needed fast-move around quick a limited time at site which is large-donot forget ither areas-romona street et and fishmarket there - do not stay with guideall the time.Next stop was Saint Baranabus Monastry well worth quick visit see tomb/church then onto Famagusta for lunch and free time- 2hrschoice of having lunch -recommmend take packed lunch asmuch to see with Monasatrys/Venetin Walls and market streets. Recommended stop off for a 'strong' coffee' turkish Cypriots style. really good.We then got on coach and toured around streets edge of Varosha only-No photos allowed and no access just staring at empty shells of house abandoned 45years ago due to political disagreements. Then back to Paphos 2hrs -really good guide nice to see different side of Cyprus.

Thank you for you comment and happy that you liked the tour.A minor correction though...is not just a political disagreement...in 1974 there was a military invasion and people forcefully abandon Varishia!

Day tour of Famagusta, Varosha and Salamis

Brilliant. Maria our tour guide was the best tour guide we have ever had on any tours. She was absolutely lovely and had a huge amount of personal knowledge about the north of the island as she had spent a lot of time there as a child before the divide. She had a wealth of historical knowledge bringing to life our visits to the ancient sites. She was very organised and the day ran like clockwork. The driver was excellent and the coach modern and comfortable.

A really good trip to Famagusta , Varosha and Salamis. Our guide Maria had been brought up in Famagusta before being forced to leave in 1974. Her stories and explanation of the history made this a very enjoyable and interesting day.

It was a very good trip. The tour guide has a lot of information. The bus departed precisely from the meeting point. Good value for money. I recommend it primarily to people of middle age and older.

Great trip to visit the north of Cyprus from Paphos. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly going through the history of Cyprus and the last 40 years that has separated the north from the south. Plenty of places to eat in the north, able to pay in Euro’s. Don’t forget your passport for the border.
