Day 2 with Sirin was a whirlwind of activity that was even better than day 1. We visited St. Hilarion castle in the early morning before other tourists arrived, then moved on to Bellapais. A lovely coastal drive brought us to the ancient Salamis ruins and finally Famagusta, where we toured the ruins in gorgeous late afternoon light. Throughout our 2-day journey Sirin made sure to point out little details: Ottoman-style lattice windows, a misplaced mosaic, evocative political graffiti, etc. Very rewarding!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ha ha ha... Thanks for the review.....

The best part about touring northern Cyprus with Sirin was her total flexibility -- she was willing to do whatever, whenever, however, wherever I wanted. I only had two days in-country and she had terrific suggestions for how to maximize my time. She was also very patient with my propensity to take 204957407407 photographs of everything I saw and visited. :-D

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the review. I enjoyed guiding you and make your short visit of Cyprus a memorable one. I have guided many people and believe me you were the only one up till now who flew 16 hrs and no complaint of tiredness and trying to get as much as you could on your limited time of visit to Cyprus.......

Sirin made it easy to contact her, answered all my questions prior to the trip, solved a big problem that came up on my end, made on the spot adaptations to the itinerary due to our interest, and was prompt and friendly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review. Hope to see you in Cyprus again.

Sirin is the perfect tour hostess. She is caring to her clients accounting for their requests and needs as we visited all the main points of interest. This tour involved some walking and Sirin worked to our pace and we never felt rushed. Our tour was interesting and Sirin was a fountain of knowledge. Highly recommend tours with Sirin

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wanted you to go back home with good memories from the beutiful island of Cyprus. Happy to read your review. Thanks a lot....

My family and I had the pleasure of Sirin's company, Despite Sirin not being from Paphos and being from the north of Cyprus she took the tour on anyway, her knowledge of the entire island was outstanding and she bonded so well with our daughters, she was so flexible on the day which was very helpful having the kids. We would definitely recommend Sirin to anyone visiting Cyprus as she provides a personal touch to her tours and she has such an infectious personality.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review. We had a wonderful day together. I was so happy to see the joy and the hapiness of the girls when I gave some hints about the island. Hope to see you again in Cyprus as there are more places to be seen..

Sirin has a very energetic and professional attitude and you can tell she really loves to give substantive and meaningful tours to foreigners. She has a deep knowledge of Nicosia and it's historical sites and she truly exemplifies the advantages of gaining insights from a local that really understands the intricacies of a particular location. Highly recommend for any tour

Sirin was very knowledgeable and personable. Besides Sirin, we had a driver who was also excellent. Everything was explained in detail. Sirin always had a smile on her face and answered all our questions. Sirin and I emailed numerous times before we departed on our trip and Sirin replied immediately. All our requests were taken into consideration. I would recommend Sirin as your guide in Cyprus.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy that I had met you. Hope to see you again.

Sirin was amazing with my family of 4. My wife and two boys (12/13 YO) thoroughly enjoyed her pace, way of communicating deep historical content, and knowledge/experience. Our family took 4 private tours over the span of 2 weeks in three countries -- and Sirin was the best!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review. I had really enjoyed guiding you and your family in Cyprus. Especially the boys passion to history and culture are unforgettable. Hope to see you again in Cyprus.

Sirin is a very personable and friendly guide, and would be great for families. We booked the tour having just moved to Cyprus and because we wanted to get oriented to Nicosia and the northern part of the island. The tour was full of beautiful scenery and a few historical sites, and I would recommend it for families or tourists looking for an overview of the history.

Sirin was an amazing guide and we spent two days with her. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable she is so personable. The tour itself was amazing and not to be missed. The sights of St. Hilarion Castle, Belapais Monastery and Kyrenia Castle and its harbor were all beautiful and not to be missed. Sirin is a wonderful guide and you cannot go wrong spending the day or multiple days with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the reviews. It was my pleasure meeting a lovely couple like you. I will keep in mind your travel experiences in Brunei...Life is full of surprises who knows we may meet again. Regards to Anushka.....

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.

Sirin was great! She was very informative and knew the history of the castles, churches, and ruins. Sirin started the tour by picking us up from our hotel and showing us a map of all the places we were going to visit. She gave us general background information on Cyprus in the car ride and more detailed information at the sites. We had a good balance of guided tour time and free time. Sirin also picked out an economical lunch location with a fantastic view! We highly recommend Sirin!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review. You know that there is a saying 'when one door closes the next one opens'. If the people had turned up for your other three tours that you had booked we wouldn't be able to meet. Although it was a last minute reservation you were lucky that I was available. Happy to met you and Laureen and taken part being your guide in Cyprus...

This was one of 3 tours (North and South, Paphos) I took with Sirin over the course of 3 days which afforded me a comprehensive view of Cyprus. Sirin is very experienced and knowledgeable. Excellent English. She made good use of time but was flexible to fulfill requests, such as respecting my interest in antiquities and this tour was noteworthy because of our visit to the Salamis Ruins. I appreciated her knowledge about all things Cyprus and we became great travel companions! Thank you!

Excellent English. She made good use of time but was flexible to fulfill requests, such as visiting Akrotiri and Dhekelia. This tour was noteworthy because you learn about the geopolitical situation which is sensitive and complicated . I appreciated her knowledge about all things Cyprus! Thank you!

Sirin met me at Ercan Airport near Kyrenia and delivered me to Larnaca Airport. She was timely and she provided her picture in advance which made our initial meeting very easy. Also notable is that she likes to drive AND she's an excellent driver. Highly recommended. Thank you!
