Halloumi Heaven... Your guide will pick you up from a location of your choice and you’ll be driven into the Troodos mountain countryside to the house of a local village lady to learn the traditional technique of halloumi and anari cheese making. The activity will start at the farm of our host where participants can learn how to milk the animals (goats & sheep) to collect their very own fresh milk. A tour of the cheese-making premises will follow where you'll be put to work to make your fresh halloumi! This hands-on workshop ends with a traditional sit-down experience where you'll enjoy a delicious brunch which will include the cheeses made plus lots more. We'll then continue our journey into the scenic mountain villages to visit a honey producer and a local man making products with donkey milk. Part of our touring will be a visit to Lefkara village where you’ll see the local ladies making the famous Cyprus lace plus time to shop & explore. Any applicable entrance fees, tasting fees, door-to-door transport, traditional brunch, coffee & drinks are all included in the tour price.

We're a friendly group of local guides all with Cypriot heritage. Growing up with the traditions and culture of Cyprus we know that this island offers something special and are passionate about sharing these unique experiences with visitors! All of us foodies, our activities focus on discovering Cyprus through food & wine. We've been running Cyprus Taste Tours since 2011 and we're confident that we've found the very best spots to explore when it comes to culture & cuisine! We regularly attend seminars related to food & wine, organise training activities, travel to expand our knowledge of the culinary scenes abroad and regularly conduct research days in Cyprus to see what is new and if there are locals doing something we can support. Come with us to see remote villages, taste unique foods, try great wine, meet true locals & more!
