Tour description

Welcome traveler! my name is Gustavo, I am a local tour guide and my interest is that you feel motivated and happy when you visit the city of Cuenca and take a nice memory when you tour the city of the 4 rivers, the city of churches and the cosmopolitan city where the traditional meets the modern.
When you visit Cuenca you will find the tranquility of being in the most beautiful city in Ecuador.
You will be amazed by the architecture of the city, where you will visit the Church of the Immaculate (New Cathedral), Church of El Sagrario (Old Cathedral), Plaza de San Francisco (indigenous handicrafts market), Tomebamba River (the most important in the city , Plaza de las Flores (water from Pítimas), indigenous tradition (shamanic cleanses, Tuesdays and Fridays) and above all to know the factory of toquilla straw hats highly valued worldwide (Panama Hat)

I wait for you!

This is one of the best free tours I’ve taken! Gustavo really knows his way around town and is super patient guiding in Spanish. The tour is very balanced with a great mix of sightseeing/markets/art. A great experience and can highly recommend especially if you’re looking to practice your Spanish.
