A Recent Review of this tour

Savvas is an excellent guide, approachable and easy to communicate. His wealth of knowledge is commendable. He answered all of our questions. The tour was interesting, enjoyable and very well paced. The cultural diversity and beautiful neo classical architecture of south Nicosia was unexpected. Armenian lunch was delicious. The buffer zone filled with remnants of events in 1974. The cross over to south Nicosia was a breeze, no queues! Overall, the history of Nicosia was very interesting.
