Walking good, Accommodation fine, Food was exceptional.

Engin the Explore Leader was one of the best that you have. Exceptional organisation skills. The restaurants that he took us to were amazing.

Explore should consider flying direct to S. Cyprus as Exodus do.

Thoroughly enjoyable - good company, varied walking and lots of sunshine. Plenty of chance to try yummy Cypriot food in the evenings - just as well there was lots of exercise! Buffavento Castle was an impressive climb, the ruins at Salamis a pleasant surprise and the Church of Antifonitis a little gem. Preferred walking on the goat paths rather than the wide vehicle tracks.

The tour provided a good balance between walking in a beautiful landscape and visiting historical sights. It should suit anyone who is moderately fit. There was a nice variety of local food provided in a number of different restaurants. The optional trip to Famagusta was well worth taking up.

I think the first thing that struck me was how loud the birds were on the first morning at Bellapais Monastery Village Hotel wonderful but no chance of a lay in! Loved the walks through the woods along tracks and paths and also the walks we did up to the castles Buffavento and Kantara were the views were amazing. Salamis roman ruins were well worth a visit. The last walk on the Saturday was said to be the toughest but I found this the most pleasant and interesting with lovely wild flowers, views and interesting footpaths following goat tracks up the side of the mountain. So many highlights it is almost impossible to name them. This was a great way to get a snapshot of the island, food, culture and history and I am glad I did the trip. Engin was a fantastic tour leader with great English. He had great local knowledge and was really interested in making the holiday work for every member of the group. His enthusiasm for his country was apparent throughout and even though he did the same walks on a regular basis he was always interested and surprised when he saw a new flower or creature. As he said he got a thrill out of meeting 16 new friends every week so it was like a holiday for him also. Ali our driver should also get a mention as he kept us safe, drove us all over, was always very warm and friendly even though his English was minimal. He had drinks for us at the end of walks and fresh cut fruit. He always had a smile and was a pleasure to know.

Hotel with pool and sauna was great, leader Engin was excellent, well informed and helpful, he took us to some good restaurants. Could have done with more walking, some days were short.

It should be made clear that Istanbul to Ercan is a n international flight not a domestic flight - as we and others assumed, very confusing on arrival at Istanbul airport.

Fantastic view from Buffavento Castle - a 'high point' of the Northern Cyprus trip.

Highlights were the varied walks both in challenge and in purpose. Ie ancient site, beach or view.
Be prepared for a variety of rather conditions and terrain.
