    Taxis in Cyprus

    by greekcypriot Updated Feb 3, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wild Nature in Cyprus!

    Taxis are widely available in big cities, but don't expect to hold up your hand a stop a taxi like it is done in Greece or other countries. It is advisable to ask for help at the reception of your hotel if you need a taxi.
    If the taxi driver you have seems a reliable person as for his card so that you can call him if you need him throughout your trip.

    Don't bother making a taxi reservation upon arrival at the airport. There are plenty of taxis waiting outside and the queue is long.

    Discus about the cost before you get in and drive off.

    A 15% surcharge is in operation from 23:00 - 06:00. Some taxi drivers expect some tipping but it depends on you actually if you see that the guy really deserves it.

    Taxi drivers in Cyprus are usually multilingual and there is no way they don't speak English at least!
    Try to be talkative and polite. I always ask for the taxi driver to hand me his card. You never know, and if he is indeed reliable you might probably need him one day!

    Lorries taking you to the Mountains

    by greekcypriot Updated Feb 3, 2014

    EMEL Buses Opposite the Old Hospital in Limassol

    TOURING AROUND CYPRUS ON A BUDGET!
    Tourists wishing to get to the Troodos mountain or travel to Platres can do this with just a euro.

    They are the EMEL buses and they are small lorries that take people to different villages. The main bus station is opposite the Old Hospital in Limasol, but you have to be exactly the time the bus leaves because the driver won’t wait a single minute.

    I have tried them myself as I could not really believe it!! Of course I am changing the tip and adding more information.

    There is a bus for Pano Platres that takes you directly to the square. This leaves at 1.30pm. I took the one that said Platres, and it took me up to Kato Platres and from there I had a friend to come and pick me.
    The buses that go to Platres make a stop in Kato platres and after 15 minutes they move on to Fini and Prodromos villages. So if one wants to get to Pano Platres has to either pick the bus that goes to Troodos which is certainly passing through Kato Platres, Pano Platres and then Troodos, or take the bus for Pano Platres that goes directly there. (1.30 pm)
    The bus for Kato Platres, Fini and Prodromos leaves from Limassol at 12.30.

    Check the site for all bus routes and timetable.
    Automatic phone without using a code is +77778121

    Tel +357 25352111

    From Pano Platres the bus leaves from the Police Station area.

    Jeep safaris

    by M.E.R.V Updated Apr 25, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hotels and travel agencies will offer safari tours round the Troodos mountains on a jeep which is a great option to explore the area without getting lost. We went on a so-called "Safari" which didnt turn out to be what I was expecting but nevertheless was pretty fun. Although the only animal I saw was a baby chameleon on a tree branch. At one point, the jeep broked down and we practically spent 2 hours waiting for it to be fixed and thank god they did. I really didn't fancy spending the night in the midst of the forest knowing we would probably not be found for a while. Drink plenty of water before, bring insect repellent along and prepare for a bumpy ride.

  • Hire a car!!!

    by bobyn Written Sep 2, 2004

    Hiring a car is probably the best way to get around the Troodos, as you are free to go where you want, and stop to admire the views, the villages, and all that comes with the Troodos by doing so.

    Some of the roads are a little twisty and narrow, so bear this in mind if you are nervous about the trip.
    I reckon there are organised tours running also, but am not familiar with them myself.

    **Make sure you have enough petrol in the car to get there and back, as petrol stations ae very few and far between, particularly on a Sunday**

    4 x 4 Tours

    by Maeniel Written Jan 7, 2003

    This is a vast area and I thoroughly recommend that seeing the sites via a guided tour on board a 4 x 4 Jeep.

    The Guide on board our transport (Andreas)spoke four languages - Greek, English, German and French. He also knew all of the best places to visit, offering a lot of insight into the area. There was also no problems with directions and he also knew all of the best places to go and see. Extremely friendly and great service.

    Unfortunately, I cannot remember the company, though I imagine they are all the similar in style and service.
