Phivos is a wonderful guide! We had a great day of hiking high in the troodos mountains with its views, cypress and pine trees. Perfect. Phivos also drove around the island to share many beauriful sights with us. We really feel we got to experience Cyprus and some of its history. We ended our journey at the Limassol cruise port.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dennis and Susan. I'm extremely happy that you enjoyed the (introductory) day on our Cyprus. There is of course so much more to see and do. Thank you so much for the fun day and your kindness. - My best wishes - Phivos

We had quite a difficult task for Phivos: An 8 hour drive from Larnaca to the far upper Northeast side of the Turkish half of the island of Cyprus. Our sole goal was to photograph the St. Andrew's monastery for a book I'm writing. Along the way, we discovered that Phivos was a veritable encyclopedia of the history and natural history of the island of Cyprus. As a matter of fact, he wrote the book on the subject! Thank you, Phivos, for a successful visit; I hope we get to meet again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure spending time with you both. Thanks for everything. Best of luck with the book and with the adventures!

The tour was personal, informative, professional. In 6 hours we covered Neolithic antiquities with an easy climb through a restored stone age settlement; a visit to a charming hill village where lacemakers were practicing their craft; and a stop to see flamingos in the wild right by the busy Larnaka Airport! Phivos had knowledge in depth of the flora and fauna of Cyprus, the island's history and culture, and current day living. His manner was friendly and engaging, his car perfectly comfortable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for everything. I enjoyed the day. Best Wishes Phivos

We spent over 11 hours with Phivos yesterday on a tour of the Greek Cypriot side of Cyprus. There are not enough superlatives to tell you how helpful and accommodating he was, taking us where we wanted to go as well as places we never had heard about. What a great guy- very informative, answered stupid tourist questions kindly,showing us the Cyprus he clearly loves. Doesn't het any better than this!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Flip and Dog, You are too kind :-) I had great fun yesterday. Thanks for everything. Best Wishes

Phivos was on time and very friendly. He gave us a comprehensive tour of Cyprus and was a very interesting, knowledge and personable person. We weren't expecting it but, as a bonus, we got a beautiful walk in a town along a stream that was gorgeous! Wish we had more time there to have explored more with Phivos.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lori thanks for the feedback. You are very kind :-) Best Wishes to you and Melanie :-)
