Meet your guides!
The people who’ll be taking you around town for your Cypriot flavour adventure are experienced food fanatics. Cyprus Taste Tours was started by Louisa and Yiota, two good friends with a passion for eating great food and meeting new people. After Louisa experienced a delicious food tour in Barcelona, she came back to Cyprus and shared with Yiota her thoughts on this amazing experience. Full of enthusiasm about the idea, Yiota suggested bringing this experience to Cyprus and of course Louisa agreed!
Yiota Mallas – food writer with a great love for Cypriot cuisine – together with Louisa Georgiou – a food and travel enthusiast – are on a mission to seek out and sample all cuisines, weird and wonderful. After living abroad and travelling to different countries, they’ve developed their palates and learnt to appreciate good food. Now both settled in Cyprus, they’ve explored the island and put together a hot list of the very best eating establishments for you to experience! Yum!
“Eating out is so much more than what’s served on your plate – it’s about the experience as a whole. In an era of globalisation, it’s become even harder to taste the island’s true character. I want to help visitors avoid the commercial, tourist traps and soak up raw, pure, Cypriot culture.”
– Yiota Mallas
“I’ve been on food tours during my travels and each time it’s been an experience I haven’t forgotten. When you don’t have much holiday time, you don’t want to waste it gambling on restaurants you find along the way while missing out on all the hidden treasures that don’t bother with advertising. When I met Yiota (a fellow foodie) it just made sense to bring this experience to Cyprus. The food here is great, but sometimes you have to know where to find it!”
– Louisa Georgiou
