When Cyprus was first discovered as a prime travel destination, life was different. Ships would tie up at the dock to offload freight and passengers.
First-class passengers would descend the gangplank as drivers waited with signs indicating the name of their charges.
Porters delivered luggage and “guest service” representatives were at the beck and call of anyone wanting to schedule an excursion.
Now. Travel is all about Google, Mapquest, and Translator. There are still some occasions you need a real, live, breathing human being. When that moment on Cyprus hits you, use these links:
