Tomas is a good guide. Consistently curious about other cultures and languages and full of whatever you want to know about Cuenca and Ecuador. Humble and professional and flexible.

Fantastico tour, fantastica guida e fantastica città, ricca di luoghi segreti che si possono scoprire solo con una guida professionale come Tomás!

Somos un grupo de 4 chicas con interés en conocer Cuenca. Tomás fue nuestro guía, con el que disfrutamos mucho la primera hora del tour. Sin embargo, las siguientes 3 horas fueron propaganda incesante de lugares de venta de productos locales con nulo interés histórico y posible comisión por venta del guía. En resumen, nos sobraron 3 h de tour en las que nos intentó vender chocolate, café, cerveza y hasta una estancia en un hotel de lujo.

We had a great time with Tomás. The tour took more than 4 hours with coffee break and tastings in between, time went by super quickly. He even took us to the Panama hat museum after the official end of the tour to show us around there. Absolutely recommended, Thanks again :)
