Lo peor y un impresentable. El guía Tomás indico que tenía cosas que hacer y que no había almorzado porque se había extendido el tour anterior. Le indicamos que le esperábamos a que almorzara y nos dijo que no, que tenía cosas que hacer y que otro día. Nosotros indicamos la imposibilidad de postergar porque ya nos íbamos de Cuenca, que sustituyera el guía e indico que era el único guía. Para nosotros fue una gran decepción ya que íbamos con toda la expectativa de conocer la historia de Cuenca y que nos encanta Gurú Walk y además con tan poco tiempo no pudimos reservar otro tour guiado de la ciudad. Destacamos la falta de profesionalismo, respeto y consideración de este guía que no puede cancelar en el último minuto sin considerar el tiempo, recursos y esfuerzo invertido de los viajeros que además vienen de otros países y que posiblemente no tendrán otra oportunidad de ver esta hermosa ciudad, porque Cuenca cale mucho la pena.
