Hello from Cyprus Taste Tours! A group of true foodies, our activities focus on discovering Cyprus through food & wine... There's nothing like tasting fresh, warm hallloumi cheese straight out of the pot and on this small group excursion there'll be plenty to enjoy throughout the day! During this unique activity you'll have the opportunity to make 2 kinds of Cypriot cheeses alongside a local family. The workshop ends with a tasting of the cheeses plus a delicious brunch! We'll also include 3 bonus stops to further explore the mountain countryside... A beautiful scenic monastery where you'll have time to roam the grounds and enjoy the views. A winery visit where we'll tour the premises, learn about the indigenous grape varieties of Cyprus and taste a selection of wines. On our way back into Paphos we’ll stop in the village of Geroskipou to learn about the traditional sweets with a tour & tasting of a small local workshop. Unlike other tours... EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED - NO HIDDEN COSTS

You'll be picked up from a Paphos location of your choice and driven into the Paphos region of the Troodos mountain range to reach the destination of our host. This will be a beautiful scenic drive through villages and vineyards. We keep our tours authentic by visiting true locals and because these local villagers are busy with every day life – we cannot guarantee which stops we’ll be visiting after the cheese-making workshop... However, here’s an example list of products - honey / traditional sweets / wine / donkey milk products / carob honey.
