What you'll do

A guide from our team will pick you up from a location of your choice and you’ll be driven around the Troodos mountain villages to visit 3 carefully selected wineries. Each boutique winery you'll visit is family-owned and you'll have the chance to meet the individuals behind the wine-making on this brilliant small group excursion.

You'll tour the premises of at least one of the wineries to learn about the process and history of wine. Through each tasting session you'll discover the indigenous grape varieties of the island and experience a selection of dry whites, rosés and reds plus the traditional sweet wine Commandaria.

Along the way we’ll stop and explore the quaint village of Omodos and sit down nearby for a lavish picnic lunch (includes sandwiches, crisps, breadsticks, dips, fruit, cake & juice. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available). On this scenic mountain tour you'll enjoy the rural villages and meet real locals - plus the opportunity to buy wine at fantastic prices!

I had a lovely experience exploring the various wineries in the Troodos mountains on this tour. We got to try lots of wine (tip: make sure you eat well beforehand!) which was very different to the ones we’d had before. We learned a lot about the types of vines in Cyprus and the history of the wines. All the wineries were very generous with their pours. It was really handy to be picked up and dropped off at our Airbnb and our host was knowledgeable and friendly. The lunch supplied was very generous and absolutely delicious. Overall we enjoyed the experience very much and would go again.

Wonderful day with Louisa, she was so friendly and really made us feel relaxed. The three wineries were lovely - small and family run and had won lots of awards. Was also great to see the village of Omodos and Louisa told us a lot about the history of Cyprus. Would definitely recommend, such a memorable experience!

Everything about this experience was brilliant! Before booking Louisa was fantastic to talk to via Air BnB and gave advice on the varying different tours her team provided from different locations in Cyprus and what to expect. She was also very accommodating, willing to put together a trip on a different date than originally scheduled and making sure I got the kind of experience I was after both with her and from the rest of my trip. The experience itself was fantastic, everything from the pick up to the drop off had been though through to make sure we were comfortable and not put out in anyway, and the homemade picnic was delicious as well as let us try some Cypriot treats! Andria, our guide, was fantastic and friendly. She was very knowledgeable about the areas we were going to, the wine and the wineries we visited, and she also gave us advice on things to do whilst on island. The choice of wineries was also fantastic, all award winning and set in beautiful locations with friendly guides. It was a very down to earth experience and we tasted so many wines I was thoroughly impressed, particularly for the price. To top it off we were given a guide of restaurants to enjoy in the area we were staying, so the experience didn't just end when we left the car. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who would like to see more of this beautiful island as well as taste some great wine, experience a bit of culture and learn a little bit of history as well. 100% brilliant.

Потрясающие впечатления! Лиза замечательная и заботливая. Нам было весело и интересно. Чувствовали себя не как на официальной экскурсии, а как на семейной поездке. При этом вся информация была полноценной и интересной. Всем рекомендую! Очень хорошо провели время! ❤️❤️❤️
