Had a great day! Very organised and worry free. The tour was well planned and the guide at Larnach Castle told the history of the Castle with much enthusiasm! We had a fantastic day - highly recommended.

On disembarking we were met by very friendly, welcoming staff. They were very efficient in getting us quickly on our way and also EXTREMELY patient in dealing with people who had trouble understanding how things would work. Great prices too!
