About the ride
Take a day trip from 1Paphos and drive along the South Coast of the third largest island in the Mediterranean - Cyprus.
During this experience, you will discover some of the most iconic places in Cyprus, such as the Aphrodite's Rock, Limassol Marina, the Ancient Kourion, and more. This experience is even more special because you can customize every aspect of it.
To get a better picture of this 8-hour trip, we outline the preliminary route. The first stop - Petra tou Romiou, also known as the famous 2Aphrodite's Rock, loca]ed 25 km East 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 3Ancient Kourion where you will see the archeological remains of an important ancient city-kingdom. Here you will find the fascinating Greco-Roman theatre which was renovated and re-opened for musical and theatrical performances.
Nearby you will find the 4Kolossi Castle which originally was built in the 15th century and was of great importance for local sugar exporters. Then, the driver will take you to the 5Limassol Marina, the iconic landmark of Cyprus, extending to 40 000 square meters. Around 70 villas and more than luxury 150 apartments are located there, surrounded by beautiful yachts.
Later, you will head towards Zygi, a district in Larnaca, located half an hour ride from Limassol Marina. It is a tiny fishing village with many taverns to taste traditional local cuisine. The restaurants in Zygi are famous for its fresh fish and beautiful views all around.
Another stop along the coast - the 6Camel Park, a place beloved by families. Here, it is possible to ride a camel and take memorable pictures. During the summer season, the swimming pool area is open too. You will find a restaurant area around the pool, offering a variety of food, snacks, and drinks.
Finally, the driver will take you to one of the most famous beaches in Cyprus - 7Finikoudes Beach. The beach is named after the palm trees, planted there in the early 30's. It has a Blue Flag status which means that the beach is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
