A fantastic way to explore with a local! Your guide will pick you up from a Larnaca 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. This small group 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 cheese! 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, traditional sweets workshop, winery (optional) and a local 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.

What Louisa and her team are doing is extremely essential to the preservation of Cypriot culture and traditions. They are the example of mindful and sustainable travel in Cyprus with their small group tours and their continuous support towards local communities (artisans, winemakers, farmers) in the country. The Halloumi Heaven tour was indeed heaven. I learn one skill in every country that I go to, and I was not wrong to choose to learn how to make halloumi cheese in Cyprus. Loula’s Farm is a delight. They explain to you the process and production of halloumi cheese and they show you everything, from the sheep and goats in their stables (I was tempted to take home a lamb!) to the making and packing of the halloumi itself. You can even take more halloumi with you! The farm was found because of love and you can see that Loula and her children continue to do their work with love as well. I learned a very important lesson that day: to do what you love and love what you do. The other stops were equally great. We visited a winery, a bee farm, a donkey farm as well as Lefkara village, where we got to see, touch, feel and purchase the renowned Lefkara lace. I enjoyed them as well. Theodora, our guide, tended to our every need and gave us time to talk and walk. She was also keen on taking photos and I felt very comfortable with her as we explored the sights. The tour was also very organized. Prior to pickup (which was on time!), Louisa sent us pertinent details of the trip. Having booked it during COVID, they also gave us safety precautions and told us what we needed to take during the excursion (flight pass, vaccine certificate, face mask, etc.) I felt safe during my trip and enjoyed every bit of it. Most of all, I know that by doing this tour, I am supporting local communities and local traditions. It’s high time we start making mindful travel decisions that impact the countries we visit and the people we come across in a positive way. I highly recommend Cyprus Taste Tours during your time in the lovely island. It gets you away from the beach days and tourist traps and instead gives you the chance to get a glimpse of local culture and be more conscious as a traveler. This is something tourists must look forward to and other tour agencies need to look up to. :)
