Highly recommend this Cuena city tour!

My husband and I had a great first day in Cuenca on our private half day tour. Our guide, Flavio Efrain picked us up promptly. He spoke perfect English. He is a very nice and knowledgeable person. He showed us the Panama hat factory and inside several churches. We spent a fascinating time in the market. Flavio explained all about the food and produce of Ecuador. We learned a lot about Cuenca.

Sebastian -- great guide!

Sebastian was fabulous - -his English is excellent (he lived in PA as an exchange student and it is obvious). He was prompt and courteous (he opened all doors for me -- very refreshing). He is extremely knowledgeable, not only about Cuenca, but also Ecuador in general. He was able to answer questions that guides in Quito and the Galapagos were not. He had a good pace - neither too fast or too slow. His car was clean and his driving very safe. I would highly recommend asking for him specifically. The only issue was not his fault -- I took the tour on a Sunday and the hat factory/museum was closed. The company should be more aware of this and let you know or suggest an alternative activity.
