We had the pleasure of having Sirin as our guide for four days in a row. We were introduced to Cyprus from North to South and East to West. She's knowledgeable and charming. At the end of our fourth day we all felt like we had a new best friend. I would whole heartedly recommend Sirin to the most discriminating tourist.
