Tours to Cyprus is a journey to the Pearl of the Mediterranean, which has a luxurious frame of prestigious hotels and restaurants, many clean beaches and constant gentle sun. Holidays in Cyprus cannot be monotonous. After all, only this island perfectly combines golden beaches and high cool mountains covered with pine thickets, secluded monasteries and ancient cities, vibrant nightlife and attractive shopping for tourists from Moscow and other regions.
Despite the fact that this island has 320 sunny days a year, the tour operator in Cyprus recommends booking tours from April to November (during this period, the warmest sea and sand warms up to the optimum temperature). And lovers of skiing will be able to fully enjoy the quality tracks on Mount Olympos in February and March.
Holidays in Cyprus are exciting rides on miniature donkeys, trips to the Akamas nature reserve, luxurious diving and treasure hunting at the bottom of the sea, fast-paced jeep safari and flights to the heavenly heights on mini-planes. Hotels and restaurants with spicy cuisine on the island are the image of European service of the highest class, and unusual flora and magnificent fauna will not let you forget this luxurious trip!

REMEMBER THAT THE SUN IN THE SUMMER IS VERY INSIDENT
To avoid sunstroke and burns, use protective creams with a high degree of radiation protection, wear hats (straw hats, panama hats), stay under an awning or in the shade for the first time. Pay special attention to children (children usually burn due to the fault of their parents). It is necessary to get used to sunbathing gradually, increasing the dose of sunbathing. Put on white T-shirts for the first time. Do not leave children unattended, stock up on inflatable circles in advance (floats on hands, waist mini-vests).
