This is what I basicly did all my life and what made me extremely happy was to share my knowledge and experience with many people.
Originally I come from Bulgaria - a picturesque country on the Balkan peninsula and first started to know and love my country. Than my passion for travel brought me to almost every spot around Europe, I lived for a year in the USA and travelled to Asia. My education in college and university was tourist industry still my working experience was linked to many different areas starting from immigration officer, later on sales manager in big multinational companies to continue in real estate and now to come back to real tourism in the last 5 years.
The last 5 years me, my wife and our little son lived in Cyprus and we have been fascinated with all the aspects that local life offers. Never the less Cyprus is only a small island in the East Mediteranean it has a versatile nature, lovely coastline and crystal clear blue sea, very rich history and traditions and lovely climate all the year round. What makes it extremely friendly and welcoming to foreigners is its population -
a multinational and multicultural mix of people that makes every visitor from abroad to feel at home in a country where life runs smoothly with no stress, still well organised and the feeling of safety makes you relax and enjoy every minute of your stay on the island. Not many places in the entire world now can offer you these feelings and positive emotions.
The main goal of my tours is to share with you this wonderful experience to visit beautiful historical and natural places, to touch the magic of local traditions and be exposed to the warm embrace of this wonderful sun, sea and sandy beaches. All this you can enjoy at the pace and intensity of your own preferences and please do not indulge to the short description about any tour published on the website.
Here I mention only the highlights of any of the tours offered. In fact on the spot you see and experience a lot more and combination of attractions from various tours listed is always an option.
Due to my multicultural experience living and visiting many countries I offer you unique comparisson and liaison of life and traditions in Cyprus and other countries. I am fluent in six languages and not so good at couple of others and this always helped me in better understanding people and their personal needs and also makes me better understood. This by the way is a global issue - if people had better understanding of each other this world would have been a lot better and safe place to live.
With me you can indulge in talks and discussions on all aspects of local history, geography, traditions, culture, everyday life and politics. I am dedicated gourmet and somelier so I can offer you unforgetable experience to taste local spirits and food and learn the long wine producing traditions of the best wineries on the island.
All my tours are combined driving and walking and the proportion between them can be adapted to your personal choice. The basic price per tour is for small groups of maximum 4 people that I drive in my Mercedes sedan. For bigger groups I hire a minibus of your choice and this will accordingly affect the price.
I have 37 years of safe driving experience so all my custommers so far have been confident and relaxed to have me at the steering weel. For this reason I preffer to drive myself rather than hiring a driver.
You are most welcome to contact me by sending me a message through ToursByLocals with detailed information and with any more specific demands. I think ToursByLocals puts you in contacts with some of the most interesting and reliable tour guides round the Planet that can satisfy your passion for travel and lovely experience abroad.
