Tour description

City of Cuenca, cultural heritage of humanity, city with Spanish influence. This small town can be explored on foot without any transportation. It is characterized by its attractions, its rivers, its nature, its flora, its fauna and, above all, the warmth of its people.
What makes an adventure complete is obviously the experience of a qualified and expert guide.

The attractions or places we will visit will be very special, as they are places with a lot of Spanish and French colonial history, one of which is the cultural richness of our city of Cuenca.

The places we will see are the following.

  • Traditional toquilla straw hat factory

  • The best unique and exclusive viewpoint with spectacular views of the Tomebamba River

  • We will be able to observe the terraces of the Cañari structure, our culture of origin, the place where our beloved city was born throughout its history.

  • We will walk in the city center and get to know the main squares and parks that will undoubtedly catch the eyes of our visitors.

**Let's not forget to use alcohol or antiseptic gel and of course the mask or face mask for very personal use.
