I loved the tour with Joanne. She took me to places she loves in the three villages of Sotira, Paralimni and Derinya. Through her personal view, I got a feeling for this area and its geographic and cultural specificities and for the three villages we visited. We sat down for a backgammon game in a traditional coffee shop, visited the beautiful churches in the heart of Paralimni, and had delicious Kubbeh in a place I would not have found myself. I feel grateful also for all the helpful advice she gave me as someone who has lived here for nearly 30 years. I feel a little bit more like a local and less a tourist now.

Joanne was an excellent host! She greeted with a lovely smile and made me feel really comfortable. It was very interesting to see where people live and how they spend their time out of tourists season. I particularly liked seeing paralimni and dheryneia villages, I enjoyed trying to play backgammon in the local coffee shop! Overall it was an excellent morning out and I would highly recommend this experience.
