An Explorer for a Day

Feeling active? Why not jump on a jeep safari and explore the Akamas Nature Reserve with a walk through the incredible Avakas Gorge. Or learn a little about the local vintage with a winery visit and tasting. For a more sedate pace, take a cruise around the island. For a little history, the capital city of Lefkosia (Nicosia) is the place to visit. Home to Archbishop Palace, it was built in the early fifties and was close to nearly being destroyed during the invasion of 1974.

Tantalising Time Off

With plenty of historic sites and towns bustling with character, this ‘Greek’ part of the island of Cyprus certainly has a colourful and eventful history, with various rulers laying claim to the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. With a wide range of optional excursions on offer, and countless regions to discover, Cyprus has something for everybody. The Troodos Mountains boast panoramic views at Throni and shelter the historic Kykkos Monastery, while if we head across the border to the Northern part of the island over the Pentadaktylos Mountains, Bellapais awaits with the ruins of its Gothic Abbey.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.
