This trip had been recommended and although I was a bit hesitant because of the cost with two kids, I'm so glad we went. It has to be one if the best days out I've been on. I loved going into the Turkish side and browsing round the town. The most interesting part of the day was seeing the deserted town of Verosha - absolutely fascinating. Also had the chance to swim in the beautiful turquoise sea there. The guides were friendly and informative and made the trip enjoyable.

We traveled on the Red Bus tour to Famagusta. Right from booking we had a great service as passport details are needed to cross the boarder before your tour and again during your trip which was all handled smoothly. A pick up point was allocated to us from almost outside our hotel. We managed to get front seats on the top deck of this open top red bus after a warm welcome from the tour guide/co owner.
The tour takes you across the boarder to the Turkish side of the Island with a commentary to point out any points of interest along the way.
There is a stop in the village to look at ruins, shop or take a drink in one of the cafe bars, then you move onto the beach at Verosha to see the beach hotels of the ghost town and swim with the turtles in the crystal clear water.
The tour is run by an ex pat with a great knowledge who can't be happier to answer your questions. All in all well worth the extra couple of euros for a good day out.

Excellent all day trip was enjoyed by all 6 of us ranging from 6 to 56. Helen and Alan were fantastic guides. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting cyprus. Very good value for money where you can learn history and background of cyprus. Thoroughly enjoyed :)

Well worth going on, we did both the tours and they were fantastic. Going through the boarder onto the Turkish side and seeing the deserted hotels that have been like that since 1974, and also doing the Village tour following the boarder with the Turkish one side and the Cypriots the other and the deserted village and what those people went through, just having to leave like they did. Dave the tour guide made the tour very interesting even the kids enjoyed it

Heard this was an excellent tour so booked on line. It certainly lived up to it's reputation, the tour was well worth the money and the two guides were extremely friendly and helpful. As we drove round the old walled city of Famagusta they pointed out places of interest to visit with a brief explanation. We had free time in the city and both guides were around the whole time if we needed them. Our next stop was Varoshia (The Ghost Resort), this was the old holiday resort of the rich & famous before the Turkish invasion of 1974. The resort is as it was left after the invasion and is a real eye opener. We had time to visit the beach there and swim in the sea. The only downside of this last part is Varoshia has been declared a military zone by the UN and you are not allowed to take photos.
