About the ride
Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Paphos.
The driver will suggest the route of the trip with the key attractions that are worth the visit. Since this experience is a personal tour, the driver will stop at any attraction of your choice and spend there as much time as you wish.
To get a better picture of this 6-hour trip, we outline the preliminary route of the 'Half-day Trip from Paphos Along the Western Coast of Cyprus.'
The first stop - Petra tou Romiou, also known as the famous Aphrodite's Rock, located 25 km from the town of Paphos. The locals describe this place as the site of the birth of the ancient Greek goddess of beauty and love - Aphrodite. The Aphrodite's Rock combines the beauty of earth and sea and attracts thousands of visitors to this picturesque place.
Next, you will have an opportunity to see a different side of Cyprus. The driver will take you to the well-known Paphos Archeological Park where you will see the core parts of the ancient Greek and Roman City. This archeological park, located in the area of Nea Pafos, is in the World Heritage list of UNESCO, so it is definitely worth the visit.
Within the same area, you will find the Medieval Castle of Paphos which was once built as a fort to protect the port. Then, the driver will take you to the Tombs of the Kings, another UNESCO World Heritage site, known as the ancient burial site of Paphitic aristocrats.
Later, you will head towards the Coral Bay, a 500 meters long beach coast with bright golden sands and clean shallow waters. The beach provides all the necessary facilities to ensure the best experience of its visitors. Around Coral Bay, you will find many different restaurants and cafeterias to try delicious local food or drinks. The Welcome Driver will help you choose the top-rated to make sure that you take only the best from this half-day trip.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at email@example.com for any specific questions regarding the experience.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of the visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in-depth information regarding historical facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.
Do I need to be in a good physical shape?
The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly.
In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
Comfortable Clothes & Shoes
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes since certain areas may have uneven or rocky ground.
Take your swimsuits, beach towels, light sandals, and any other accessories that you might find necessary at the beach.
Bring Your Camera
Photography is permitted in most historical sites unless otherwise mentioned.
Accessibility & Special Needs
Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
