Cyprus Premier offer a whole range of guided tours to add extra enjoyment to your holiday in North Cyprus. We organise the buses, itineraries and restaurants as well as providing expert guides for each tour. All of the major tourist attractions and historical sights are available on our tour schedules whilst our local guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. If you book one of our full day tours they will include all entry fees to the museums and historical sites as well as lunch in a Cypriot restaurant.
The tour examples below show some of our most popular tours:
Full day tour to Salamis; the Monastery of St. Barnabas and walled city of Famagusta with lunch included. This tour encompasses the bath house area, theatre and gymnasium at the famous ancient site of Salamis which was once the most powerful city in the whole of Cyprus. This tour is followed by a visit to the monastery of St. Barnabas who is the patron saint of Cyprus. The famous church and ancillary buildings are now an icon and antiquities museum. We then move on to a walking tour of Famagusta where you will take in landmarks such as; Othello’s tower that guards the harbour, the great cathedral of St. Nicholas (Lala Mustafa Pasha mosque), the remains of the palace of the Provveditore, the prison of the writer and philosopher Namik Kemal as well as the church of St. Peter and Paul which is now called the Sinan Pasha mosque.
Full day tour to the Karpaz peninsula with lunch included. Experience a trip to the far eastern end of North Cyprus where only sheep, goats and a solitary shepherd move in the landscape. During this tour, visits will be made to Iskele to visit the church and icon museum of the Panayia Theotokos, a beautifully decorated church with wall paintings dating from the 13th and 15th centuries. In the village of Sipahi, close to Yeni Erenkoy is the site of a Byzantine basilica where there is a beautifully preserved mosaic floor. Further on below the village of Dipkarpaz on the northern coastline is the site of Ayios Philon, here there is an opus sectile floor dating from the 5th Century and the ruins of the later church erected in the 12th Century. Built close to the old Roman harbour, it is only a short walk to investigate the remaining harbour moles and see where the iron ties clamped the cut stones together. In summer there is a stop at one of the wonderful "Karpaz beaches for a swim.
Cyprus Night; an evening out in a traditional village restaurant to experience the full menu of Cypriot food starting with a range of succulent ‘mezes’ and a ‘brandy sour’. Guests have the opportunity to sample one of the many meat dishes for which Cyprus is famous. This might be tasty shish kebabs of chicken or lamb or kleftico - the dish that is cooked slowly in a clay oven which consists of a piece of lamb usually cooked on the bone and accompanied by potatoes and tomato. Mouth wateringly tender, this is a dish everyone should try during a North Cyprus holiday. The evening will be enriched by live Cypriot music and entertainment by a “Belly Dancer”.
