We get it...

Our previous travellers also questioned whether visiting Cyprus was just too much hassle...

Take one of our previous clients, who was a solo female traveller.

She wanted to visit Cyprus to learn about Naqshbandi Sufism and also see the mountains and date palms she'd heard so much about.

She had visited other European countries alone, but had been told that Cyprus was harder to travel to solo. She worried about how safe and practical travelling to Cyprus would be.

 

We designed a 6 day tour that took care of every part of her trip, from the moment she landed at Larnaca airport.

Our driver picked her up from the airport and took her to the accommodation we had arranged in Lefke, which was an apartment within 3 minutes walk of the dergah.

She was surrounded by local mureeds who made her feel safe and connected to the local Sufi community. The apartments owners even checked in on her to make sure she was comfortable.

 

We also put together an itinerary of daily excursions to the Weeping Dervish Lodge, Troodos mountains, and Hala Sultan Tekke with a private driver, so that she could discover the best of Cyprus.

She travelled the island coast to coast in comfort, without having to figure out local transport routes.

She left Cyprus spiritually enriched after immersing herself in the history, culture and natural beauty of the island, as well as Sufi hospitality! She looks forward to returning to her 'second home' soon.
