About the ride

Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Larnaca.

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 Larnaca to Magnificent Cyprian Monasteries.'

The first stop - Stavrovouni Monastery, located on a rocky peak, 40 km from the town of Larnaca. The title of the monastery, translated from the Greek Language means "the mountain of the Cross." Stavrovouni Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in the whole world since it was built in the 4th century.

Next, you will head to another monastery, located in the heart of the island of Cyprus - Panagia Machaira Monastery. This historic monastery is located 900 meters above sea level. It is one of the most famous well-known monasteries in Cyprus which holds the celestial icon of Virgin Mary. This sacred place fascinates every visitor by its architecture and atmosphere.

Finally, the driver will take you back and suggest walking around the famous Finikoudes Beach near Larnaca. There you will admire the views of the sea and the palms, as well as have a chance to taste traditional food at the restaurants nearby.

Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at hello@welcomepickups.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.

Useful tips

Summer Essentials

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.

Dress Modestly for Religious Monuments

When visiting religious monuments please dress modestly, or bring extra layers to cover up at that particular point of the tour.

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.

Beach Accesories

Take your swimsuits, beach towels, light sandals, and any other accessories if you would like to spend some time at the beach.

Local Currency

We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
