Unearth Nicosia's Wonders and Lefkara's Charm

Embarking on a journey overseas often necessitates a guide who can encapsulate the essence of the culture you wish to immerse in, one whose natural disposition is positivity and warmth. Allow me, as that guide, to accompany you through the beautiful, rich history and captivating local culture of Cyprus. Our exploration will lead us to the enchanting Lefkara village, renowned for its delicate 'lefkaritika' lacework and exquisite silver handicrafts. You may wonder, what connection does this picturesque hamlet have with the legendary Leonardo da Vinci? As we meander through the village's cobblestone lanes, I will unravel this intriguing tale. Next, we journey to the heart of the island, Nicosia - or as it is known locally, Lefkosa or Lefkosia. As the island's capital since the 11th century AD, it holds the unique distinction of being the world's only divided capital. As we wander through its age-old walled city and traverse the border dividing its two halves, I'll weave stories of its rich, multifaceted history. Born and raised in Nicosia prior to its partition, I possess a unique ability to illuminate its past and present like no other. So, join me on this memorable tour as we uncover the irresistible allure of Cyprus' top sights together.

We had a fabulous day with Sirin. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. Touring Nicosia was an amazing experience. We would recommend Siran without reservations.

Our family had a great day exploring from the port of Limassol with Sirin. She was so friendly and welcoming and we had a fun and informative tour with her. Also, our lunch with Turkish-style mezzes was delicious. We had comfortable transportation and covered as much as possible in our excursion. Thank you Sirin for an excellent day we will always remember!
