Resort Information

Paphos - one-time ancient Greek and Roman capital of the island and now a UNESCO-World Heritage site - is a pretty port where modern amenities provide holiday creature comforts without diluting the wonder of the upper town's historic sites. Bars and restaurants line the picturesque harbour front, while palm-fringed boulevards and flower-decked courtyards radiate charm and conviviality.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Cyprus, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your Paphos hotel.

Day Two

Today's included half-day guided walking tour of Paphos will reveal the extraordinary 'Tombs of the Kings' burial site, the famous Paphos Mosaics housed in ancient Roman villas, and the Byzantine Church of Ayia Paraskevi. There will also be an entertaining stop to see how Loukoumi - the Greek Cypriot version of 'Turkish' Delight - is made.

Day Three

Our second included tour takes us to the spectacular Troodos Mountains, which rise above the plains and the coast and which have been home for centuries to remote villages and religious communities, including several wonderfully decorated Byzantine churches.

Stop in Throni Park, burial place of Archbishop Makarios, Cyprus' first president, and ancient Kykkos Monastery, famed for its Byzantine Museum.

Day Four

Join today's optional excursion beyond the political divide of the 'Green Line' into Northern Cyprus, occupied by Turkey since 1974. In this beautiful region of mountains dotted with ancient villages leading down to a tranquil coastline, you'll visit Gothic Bellapais Abbey (made famous by author Lawrence Durrell) and the coastal port-town of Kyrenia.

Day Five

Relax in Paphos today. In addition to your hotel's facilities, the town has sights to see, shops to discover, and even nearby golf courses to tempt the energetic.

Day Six

Today's fascinating included excursion visits historic Nicosia, island capital for more than 12 centuries. Divided in 1974 by the 'Green Line' separating Greek and Turkish Cypriot territories, the city is both a bustling metropolis, with a sophisticated cafe culture, and a fascinating gateway to the island's turbulent past.

You'll also visit the delightful village of Pano Lefkara.

Day Seven

Step into Cyprus' fascinating past on our final optional excursion. Visit the magnificent Greco-Roman amphitheatre at Kourion, pass the rock where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the waves, and see the extraordinary mosaics of the 'House of Eustolios'. Other highlights will include a typical Cypriot lunch, and visits to Limassol's old town and to the picturesque village of Lania.

Day Eight

Say farewell to Paphos, and transfer to the airport to board your flight home.

Downham Market Couple
Biggest complaint we were dropped off at the airport an hour and half before the check out opened even though we were only 20 minutes from the airport where there was no seating. Hotel and food were excellent. The tour guide was not enthusiastic although knew a lot about the area had very little humour. One of the optional excursion to Limassol vastly overpriced with a very poor lunch, my husband was poorly all evening and another lady had to send her wine back as was definitely off, small wine bottles had been refilled with very dubious quality and unhygienic. Hotel staff at Sentido very helpful.

very well-organised and thought through enabling individual holidaymakers to find right balance for them between seeing plenty of Cyprus outside immediate holiday area and local exploring, sun bathing etc according to individual tastes. Hotel staff and guides, drivers etc were very welcoming and Stella's impressive local and historical knowledge in her guiding role added an extra dimension for those not there just for the sun (enjoyable though that was!)

COLIN

Crediton Couple
Overall the holiday was fine but the hotel room was in need of an update. The air conditioning was poor. The transfers could have been be better organised. We arrived at the hotel at 10.30 pm and missed the first evening meal. No alternative was offered. Apart from that, the quality of the food in the hotel was really good. The included trips were good and our guide, Stella, was very informative.

This holiday in Cyprus is to be recommended. Many positives include the flights (both ways), hotel position (and breakfasts) and the excursions. Negatives - evening meals at hotel were disappointing and the trip to Nicosia.

LOIS

Clevedon Friends
The holiday was full on and because we had booked extra excursions it was tiring and in fact we didn't go on one excursion we had paid for. The tour guide, Stella, was excellent as was the coach driver George. We paid extra for a sea view room, which was worth it, and this included free wifi. There were a lot of steps at the hotel and for anyone with limited mobility it would have been difficult. The lift was extremely small and claustrophobic so we walked up and down each time to our room on the second floor. The food was very lacking in imagination and limited in variety, both at breakfast and dinner. However, the situation in central Phasos was perfect and the cleanliness of the room and hotel we found to be good. The coach was unable to stop outside the hotel which involved a walk dragging the cases to be presented with a lot of steps to get into the hotel. This after waiting in the coach an hour for other arrivals and no explanation given as to why the delay.
