Where you'll be

We will be walking a lot along the "Green Line", Ermou Street and near main landmarks, such as Famagusta and Pafos gate.
However, those obvious landmarks you can see by yourselves, I like to focus on the things only a local can show you, like secret passages and secret churches!

We really enjoyed and highly recommend Anastasia's walking tour! She showed us around various areas of the old walled city - including a secret church and along the green line - and through her inside knowledge and stories she gave us a view of the city that we never would've experienced otherwise. You won't be disappointed.

Anastasia provided an incredible tour. She was able to share real stories about what life is like. She took us to some very unique spots I never would have found on my own. This is one of the better tours I have taken. I highly recommended her!

The trip I went on was an evening one, which had its own magical aspects, and it was cooler. Anastasia was able to show us what it felt like to be in a city where, as a child, she couldn't go on certain streets near the green line for fear of being shot, but where we could now walk freely and exchange pleasantries with the guards. I felt much more closely associated with all that had happened to the Island, and my own country's unedifying part in it. I'm so glad I went ... it was a very special evening.

Amazing. This is an incredible experience. Comes with my highest recommendation. Anastasia is a very warm and generous local who will share her personal Nicosia with you and leave you with an understanding of the people, history and culture of the city that you will not find in any book or other tour. You’ll also leave with a list of her personal favourite restaurants, cafes, bars and event spaces - a lot of which are hidden gems in backstreets and alleyways that she takes you through. I felt very humbled by her generosity of spirit. Definitely don’t miss this tour. I probably shouldn’t write this here but she also runs the beautiful 3 Room boutique hotel (yes, only three rooms!) in the center of the gorgeous old town.

Anastasia showed us not only the interesting and historical parts of Nicosia, but also hidden churches and took us to the border to see the guarded dead zone und the occupied part of Nicosia. She was able to transport very emotionally the feelings of the locals towards this situation in view of the dilapidated houses and the wounded city. Apart from that, she ist a very friendly and outgoing person und we appreciated and enjoyed her company very much. We can recommend this walk to anybody who likes to see and know more than the usual tourist guides provide.
