- After the Lycian way last year with a great guide I was very enthusiastic booking a walking holiday again with explore but I was so disappointed and angry. First of all the highly praised guide Engin Sah did not turn up but an other lady and I was not very impressed by her. She organized well and knew the way but not more. She did not know anything about nature and not much about the history and she was talking more to her phone then to us. She just has not the personalitiy and the knowledge to be a guide.
Most of the walks were very boring on wide dusty roads (not her fault I guess) but she walked too fast and the slower ones never had a rest. She was waiting for them and as soon as they came she walked on. I was in the middle but her speed also stressed me. No time to look at details and so on. I heard that Cyprus is very famous for hiking and I am sure there would be nicer walks then on the dusty roads. The accommodation was just OK, the food excellent and the staff except the reception very nice. I forgot my swimming suit in the hotel and when I called three days later they told me that they threw them in the bin. I was very disappointed. Disappointed altogether from the trip. Thank god we had a lovely bunch of people and that helped a lot.
