Sirin is an excellent guide, friendly and knowledgeable, with fluent English. She certainly showed us the sites of historical and cultural importance, but Nicosia is also interesting for its present position as a divided city, and, without touching on the overtly political, she helped us better understand the background for that. She showed care for our comfort and took that into consideration - like a coffee stop when a walk was long! I would recommend her highly.
