A group of 7. We all highly enjoyed our day in the Troodos Mountains with Andreas. He is very knowledgeable, funny, speaks perfect English, has tons of good will. Highly recommended.
Our family spent two full days exploring the Akamas peninsula and the Troodos region with Andreas. Our two children, ages 8 and 2, absolutely loved him and my husband said it was the best tour we have ever done. On our own, there is no way we could have visited half the places he took us (lots of off roading!) He arranged extra adventures like teaching my daughter to make traditional Cypriot coffee and the family owned restaurants we visited were incredible. Our time with Andreas made the vacation.
We were a group of 6 girlfriends who took the tour of troodos mountain with Andreas. Every one of us enjoyed the tour totally. He is an excellent guide in terms of knowledge , extremely hospitable and takes through the best scenic routes. His sense of humor all through the tour of almost 9-10 hours kept the mood lite, happy and we hardly realized how the day had passed! I'm really glad we opted for this through tour by locals, keep up the excellent service.

Andreas has a passion for Cyprus and he shared that with us throughout. We had wonderful experiences with the local people and were able to dine at a wonderful local family run restaurant where we had the most delicious food. We had the type of food we are not able to get in LA, nothing can surpass home cooked. I very much enjoyed my tour to the great part of Cyprus and Andreas us made it all possible with his good humor his passion & his knowledge. it was like traveling with a Cypriot Zorba the Greek!

We LOVED our day with Andreas! His knowledge of and passion for his native land made the day both fun and informative. He shared a wealth of information about native flora and fauna as well as the history and culture of Cyprus. He and his trusty Land Rover took us places we could never have explored on our own and the local restaurant he chose for our lunch was amazing! We welcomed the opportunities to take short walks to explore the sights and experience nature. A day & money well spent!!

Our tour with Andreas was an absolute delight from beginning to end. Andreas was incredibly friendly and flexible with the activities on the day and also when our numbers went up slightly. His car is comfortable and the stops during the tour are truly interesting, besides, he adds a lot of really interesting details and provides a lot of background information. He wants to make the best tour possible and tries to avoid crowds and to show the beuty of the Akamas in the best possible way. Highly recommend.

A interesting day seeing a different area of Cyprus to the coast. Visiting small villages and out of the way places. We had time to explore and have coffee and lunch. Thank you Andreas for returning the hat left behind in the land-rover!

The tour was fantastic. Andreas was very considerate of our needs throughout (we are probably older than many of his clients) and also adapted the tour in accordance with our interests. He gave us enough but not too much information and radiated enthusiasm particularly about plants and wildlife. We had great fun and learned a lot.
Ewa ClementUnited Kingdom
Well where do I begin, the tour was AMAZING! we have learned so much from Andreas who was the best tour guide I have come across by far! Very intelligent, passionate, informative and funny! The day was filled with interesting facts about fauna and flora and funny stories and it was just the highlight of our stay in Cyprus! We really enjoyed his sense of humour and big passion for his job! THANK YOU!

Andreas was an excellent guide, very caring, and he checked with us frequently about our wishes during the tour - planned stops, duration of visits etc. He also gave us plenty of relaxation stops, photo opportunities etc, ensuring we did not spend too long in the car. His knowledge of the area and it's history was very good and he also knew many of the local people we met. His sense of humour was great, making every aspect of the tour enjoyable. His English was excellent and we strongly recommend him.
Catherine RobertsANCASTER, ON, Canada
Andreas was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable, fun to be with, great sense of humour, made this tour very special. Couldn't have asked for a better guide. He is so passionate about his country and the guiding he does. We spent a lovely day with him, historical, economics, political and showed us the lifestyle from both city and rural sides. What a beautiful country, I had been there before but he showed me the better part of Cyprus. A group of seniors who just loved him and his tour. A+++++
Tanya TrepelkinUnited States
Our tour with Andreas exceeded all expectations. We had a wonderful day in Cyprus and Andreas made it truely entertaining and educational experience. He showed us some rural parts of the island that we could not see with other tours. He is flexable to meet client's needs and makes the tour time real fun. I highly recommend to use Andreas if you plan to visit Cyprus.
Thomas SalmonUnited Kingdom
This is an excellent tour by Andreas. He has considerable knowledge of the history, fauna and flora of the island. Although the tour was expensive for two people, it gave my wife and I a greater understanding of Cyprus and Cyprian life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to show you a bit of authentic Cyprus. It's been truly a pleasure spending the day with both of you, and a real pity tell Linda, that we didn't get the chance to take a good look at the snake; hopefully, next time:)
Cassandra HerrigesUnited States
This was the best tour we have ever taken, and the best day of our Cyprus vacation. Andreas is extremely knowledgeable about the history, flora and fauna of Cyprus. He was extremely flexible to customize our day. And he was a delightful person to spend time with. We had beautiful mountain scenery, stops in deserted mountain villages, visits to a winery, monastery, taverna, and waterfall. And a coffee break with forestry workers at a Venetian bridge. Thank you, Andreas, for a day we will always remember!

Let's start off by saying I don't usually take the time to review anything. But my goodness, did I have a fantastic time with Andreas today. He was absolutely perfect, it makes me want to come back to Cyprus just to book him again, which I definitely will when I revisit. Excellent character, fantastic humour, fantastic tour. After our tour with Andreas, all I could rave about to others was that they should definitely book with him in particular. Today was fantastic!
Ron BaumerUnited States
An outstanding two day tour. The guide (Andreas) was the perfect choice to see the island of Cyprus! Andreas was funny, knowledgable and extremely entertaining! If you are looking for a guide to show you the real Cyprus, you have to go with Andreas! Our two day tour will always be a treasured one!
Cory DieterichUnited States
Andreas was more than accommodating and patient with us! We were a last minute tour group at a very awkward time and needy. He not only helped us mold the tour to our liking but he also worked with us when we enlarged the group by 9 more people. Our group loved the tour and appreciated all the fun we had a long the way!
Anne FilerUnited Kingdom
Andreas was a wonderful guide and we had the best tour of our cruise with him. he quickly assessed our interests and took us to places only a local could have known about - wonderful waterfalls, fabulous views, off road hidden delights. It was exhilirating. He has deep knowledge of Cyprus, its politics, ecology, history,food, people and taught us a lot about the island. A tour with Andreas is horoughly recommended.
excellent guide , flexible regarding groups wishes, well informed
Garry GlanzUnited Arab Emirates
510 characters is not enough to describe how great this tour was, and how fantastic a guide was Andreas. He was quick to respond to all of my emails, phone calls and texts, which made travelling alone in a foreign country a lot less daunting. He thought a great deal about this tour, and was extremely accommodating, entertaining and knowledgeable about all things Cyprus. I highly recommend this tour, and its brilliant and highly experienced guide. Five out of five, would do it again.

Andreas thankyou for a wonderful day. While we only had a limited time you managed to show us some of the country, also the ancient sites and to fit so much in was truly amazing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jan and Co., Thank you for giving me the opportunity to show you a bit of Cyprus. It has been truly a pleasure spending these few hours with all six of you. Wishing you the best to the rest of your journey. Many thanks and my warmest regards to all, Andreas

Not to much to see in Cyprus. We had a nice time with Andreas, but the jeep is a quite old one and not good for aged people, like us. The tour was interesting
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I trust you are all well. Thank you for choosing me to show you around a bit of Cyprus. It is a real pity that you did not have enough time, to drive a little bit outside the tourist areas. It would be really great if we had the chance to drive a little bit outside Limassol, and visit a few typical Cypriot villages, the wine region, or a small waterfall, and get the chance to meet some authentic Cypriot people and a proper traditional lunch. Hopefully next time
Valerie WallaceUnited Kingdom
Andreas was excellent , if there was stars above 5 I would give a 10, he was always on time , very flexible with the itiniery as some of the guests were tired on our first tour day so he changed the itiniery around . We had a wheelchair user in the party and he was very accommodating and inclusive. He is a funny and very knowledgeable guide and one I would not hesitate to recommend and use again when I visit or take a group to Cyprus again. Thank you Andreas for showing us your amazing country.

Andreas tour from Limassol, Cyprus was fantastic. He was extraordinarily knowledgeable, engaging, funny, and flexible. He managed the difficult task of making the tour equally enjoyable for a pair of middle-aged parents and their two children and a friend in their mid-teens to early 20s. The combination of classical era ruins, mountain villages, and nature provided a nicely balanced experience of Cyprus beyond the beach town where we were staying. A definite highlight of our trip.
Fred AmesUnited States
Andreas was prompt and friendly. He tailored the tour to our needs and the conditions. Especially knowledgeable, we learned a great deal about the Island's geography and history. Time and dollars well spent. We highly recommend him!
What an absolute stunner! I loved the Akamas tour! Enjoyed it from beginning right through to the end and wished it didn't have to end! Thanks Andreas, you did a great job! Highly recommended!
Douglas TheissUnited States
Andreas was an excellent tour guide. Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. The jeep was adequate for 6 but would have been tight for more. He was very knowledgeable about his country, surroundings and people. He knew the history of the area and did a fantastic job of sharing the facts with us. Andreas was fluent in English and conscientious about what we wanted to see. He customized the tour to fit our needs. It was a great experience!
Linda GriffeySan Marino, CA, United States
If we could chose 6 stars instead of 5, we would. Andreas was an outstanding tour guide. While our other tour guides were very good, Andreas was head and shoulders above. He really zeroed in on our interests and focused the tour on those interests. The bee and lace museum was great. He even gave us two bottles of Cyriat wine to take back to the ship. They were very nice. Thank you, Andreas!
The choice we made to choose the guide by ToursByLocals became clear as an excellent choice. We discovered Andreas as the perfect guide - he knows how to accommodate himself to the group. Every thing work like clockwork, right on schedule. Eran Yalon
Andreas was a good guide - knowledgeable, polite, accommodating and with a good sense of humor. We had two young children with us and he was very good, kind and helpful with them. The tour was adjusted to our preferences as we went along. The route varied from no roads to good roads, which was fun. Overall, we enjoyed our day.
it was pleasure and interesting to see the country side the guide was very good and friendly.
Our tour with Andreas in early August was very informative and scenic. We travelled by 4 wheel drive to quaint and remote country villages, experienced the delicious and authentic Cypriot cooking and lifestyles. Andreas was a wealth of information of the local country side and history of Cyprus. We have no hesitation in recommending to anyone wishing to travel to Cyprus to book a tour with Andreas as they will love every moment of it just like we did. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Thanks again Andreas.
