Sirin took us on an amazing walking tour of Nicosia. It was such a fascinating city given its history and being the only divided capital city in the world. It was truly a highlight of our trip and Sirin's incredible knowledge and insight really made it memorable. We would recommend this full day walking tour of Nicosia with Cyprus to anyone.
