Day 1Fly to Cyprus, meet your Tour Manager at the airport, and board the coach for the transfer to your chosen hotel.
Day 2Explore Paphos - the island's ancient capital - on today's included guided tour. Discover how ancient Cypriot burial practices are refining our understanding of ancient chronology at the Tombs of the Kings, see the famous Paphos Mosaics housed in ancient Roman villas, and visit the ninth-century church of Agia Paraskevi.
Day 3Rest, relax and explore as you see fit, or join us on an optional excursion that begins with a visit to the glorious beach that is home to Petra tou Romiou, Aphrodite’s Rock, where the goddess of love is said to have risen from the waves. From here we'll head east along the coast to the ancient ruins of Kourion, where a magnificent Second-Century BC Greco-Roman theatre that is still in use today sits spectacularly atop the cliffs.
Your next stop will be Limassol. Here a guided tour will reveal the fascinating sights, excellent shopping, and compact Old City - home to a picturesque fishing harbour and yachting marina - of this bustling city and centre of the Cypriot wine industry. Stroll through the streets of the Turkish Quarter surrounding the Castle in search of the historic Grand Mosque and the traditional hammam bath houses that still operate here.
Day 4New Year's Eve's included excursion takes us into the centre of Cyprus and up into the Troodos Mountains. Nestled among the peaks lie hidden Byzantine churches, the burial place of Cyprus' first president and even an ancient monastery.
We'll stop in Platres, a popular ski station, to take in the stunning views, perhaps enjoy some refreshments and even perhaps a little seasonal snow.
Return to the hotel to begin your New Year celebrations with a gala dinner.
Day 5Enjoy a relaxed first day of 2020. Take a stroll through the town or along the seashore, and later enjoy a special festive dinner with music and entertainment.
Day 6Bid farewell to your hosts, today, and board our coach for the transfer back to the airportwhere you'll check in for your flight home. Back to top
Hotel transfer timesThe transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 45 minutes.
Combining hotel transfersWe sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
Special requirementsIf you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
Disabled accessThe majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Itinerary changesOccasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
