Very good, excellent guide, great city.
Great tour, very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Would highly recommend this tour.
I always wanted to see the northern part of Cyprus, especially the capital, Nicosia and its surroundings, so I opted to take this tour. It was back in July, where the temperatures reach 30 degrees even at 9 oclock in the morning. I had to wait outside for the bus for about half an hour, as they usually pick up people from different hotels along the coastline. At some point, people from a smaller bus joined our bigger bus and we were finally on our way after more than 1 hour form the original pick-up. The scenery along the way is quite picturesque, but rather arid and missing vegetation due of course to the weather in Cyprus. The guide on the bus was very friendly and informative, giving a lot of insight on the history and fables of the island. Once in Nicosia, we were taken to the Leventis Municipal Museum and on through the narrow streets of the capital to the Green Line which separates the city into the Cypriot and Turkish territory. We had to show our passports in order to cross on the other side where we were taken to the magnificent Selimiye Mosque impressive on the outside as on the inside. Afterwards, we were left on our own to have lunch and wander around the streets for about 3 hours, when, at some point, we had to find a place to hide due to the high temperatures over 40 that day. Once back at the meeting point, we had to wait again in the scorching heat for the bus to come and pick us up, which was quite an unpleasant experience and told that it was held at the other Turkish border due to some issues with the passports. On the way back we got to see the Aphrodites Rock by the ocean just when the sun was coming down over the island. The only reason I didnt give 5 stars is because of the bad organization that day I suppose, but all in all it is a tour worth the money.
Nicosia is good but too long on bus to make it enjoyable. 2hrs to get there, and you need to pick up from Limassol as well as Paphos. Did not think this was clear in description. Bus contained a different tour so we got dropped off at Nicosia and they went off to elsewhere. Trouble was they were 40 minutes late returning so sat on side of road waiting with no info, then another 2hrs on bus return.
