When you are finally beached-out, all sunned in and washed up with bathing, it may be a great time to check out some of the real Cyprus that lies beyond the resorts. If, however, a conventional coach excursion is your idea of boring, the red bus may be just the ticket. Based on the southern side of Famagusta, the red bus is ideally based for trips around the villages and Northern Cyprus.
The perfect vantage point
One of the outstanding features that make the red bus tours stand out from other coach excursions is the open air top deck. The red buses are even more at home here in sunny Cyprus than they ever were in cold rainy England and the thousands of visitors that use them every year tend to agree. There is no doubt that the view from “up top” reveals some spectacular and intriguing views that are missed when exploring by car or conventional coaches.
Hire your own red bus
The red buses are available for private hire at affordable rates including weddings, parties, and virtually any other event where transport is needed. The highly experienced drivers and tour guides are dedicated to ensuring that visitors to Cyprus get the most out of their stay on the Island and get to see many of the places that tourists so often miss. If you are coming to Cyprus with a group of friends or looking to organise a corporate event with a difference, chartering a Cyprus red bus private hire could be your ticket to success.
Famagusta Ghost Resort and village tours
It is an unfortunate fact of Cyprus life that the Island has been split into two territories since 1974 and as result, it remains a divided Island to this day. The Southern Greek and Northern Turkish areas are separated by a narrow tract of land known as the Green Line and this is policed by soldiers of the United Nations peacekeeping forces.
The Cyprus Red Bus tour visits the deserted beach resort at Vorosha and takes passengers along the boundary of the now deserted and derelict villages inside the fenced off Green Line. The full day out includes free time for shopping, exploring, and dining and it visits Cyprus villages on route. If you fancy a swim in the clear blue waters off the beach at the abandoned Vorosha ghost resort, snorkels and masks along with underwater cameras are also provided.
Take in thousands of years of Cyprus history
Part of the Cyprus Red Bus tour includes a visit to the ancient walled city of Famagusta itself where an experienced tour guide gives visitors an insight into the turbulent history and diverse culture of the town. With its derelict cathedrals, imposing mosques, and busy port, visitors can’t help but capture something of what the once proud town has seen during its long and illustrious history.
Convenient collections and repeat trips
With daily tours from Pernera, Protaras, and Ayia Napa, collection and drop-off are convenient wherever you are staying in South East Cyprus.
It is hardly surprising that visitors to the sunny holiday island book Cyprus Red Bus tours year after year and recommend them to their friends and family too. The friendly and helpful family run team at Cyprus Red Bus are dedicated to ensuring that you enjoy every aspect of the tours they provide and that they continue to represent excellent value for money.
