Making the Most of Cyprus Excursions

By: Kev Moore

Cyprus excursions are a great way to see more of this beautiful Island especially if you don't want the hassle of driving yourself. After all you don't go on holiday to drive around if you can get someone else to do it for you. Cyprus has more tourist attractions and places of interest than you can shake a stick at so you aren't going to run out of places to visit anytime soon. The trick is to get as much sightseeing in as possible without stressing yourself out. A great idea may be to have a Cyprus excursion day followed by a "total chill out" the next day. Maybe a day lounging on one of the Islands beautiful beaches or just relaxing by the pool with some long cool drinks.

If you like history they have bags of it for you to see with everything from ancient Greek ruins to roman mosaic floors. Even empty tombs to stick your head into or more churches and monasteries than you could ever get around in a couple of weeks. All these fabulous places of interest are on the Cyprus excursions hot list so there is bound to be one that floats your boat (or bus).The resorts are littered with little shop front offices acting as a mix of car hire and Cyprus excursion agencies so you won't have any problems finding somewhere to make your bookings. The coaches are very modern and will be equipped with air conditioning so you won't need to worry about the hot Cyprus sun but remember to take a hat for when you get off.

Most of the larger Cyprus excursions will pick you up near or right outside your hotel and drop you off there again in the afternoon giving you plenty of time to dress for dinner at the Captains table or wherever it is you are dining that evening. Your trip will come complete with your friendly and knowledgeable Cyprus excursion tour guide too. They will be an absolute mine of information about Cyprus culture and maybe even tell you a few good jokes too to while away the journey. If you need the toilet don't raise your hand though because there will be a few scheduled refreshment breaks along the way.

You can visit such places as the Troodas mountains (skiing in winter) which is area an area of outstanding national beauty as well as being a conservation area too. There is a great visitor center in the Troodas village where you can "bone up" on your knowledge by watching a short informative filmabout the wildlife and plants that are unique to the area. If all that coach travel has made you a bit stiff there are plenty of marked out scenic walks you could take but make sure you get back to the coach at the agreed time. Otherwise you will be the guys who suffer the embarrassment of the slow hand clap for making everyone else late back for dinner and causing your driver to break the world land speed record on the way back.

If you are seeking Cyprus excursions of a more adventurous nature you may want to try a jeep safari instead of the coach. These excursions also come complete with the knowledgeable Cyprus tour guide but he also doubles up as the driver too. Some of the destinations include nature reserves in the mountains inaccessible to cars and coaches or secluded beaches which can often only be reached with a 4x4. There is even a jeep safari to the ghost town of Famagusta in the North of Cyprus but it is not recommended if you are afraid of ghost (joke). You will see all the hotels that where shelled out during the Turkish invasion of 1974 now left in total dereliction in the buffer zone between the North and South. So book away to your hearts content, see more of the Island and enjoy your Cyprus excursions.
