Our walk with Flavio was really great. Not only does he love his city but he was very knowledgeable about the various types of architecture and the time periods. He was gracious to extend our walk by another hour to make sure he covered all the areas he wanted to show us.

100x100 recomendable. Reservamos con muy poco margen (en inglés), y tuvo la preocupación de hacerse entender para nosotros y la pareja de escoceses que nos acompañaba. Muy profesional, y una manera alternativa de conocer Cuenca. Sin duda un acierto en la visita a la ciudad!
