What You Can Expect

Cuenca City Tour

Cuenca City Tour

This comprehensive guided city tour showcases the best of Cuenca. Start from your hotel and head out into city streets where you’ll visit the Museum of Modern Art near the famed Plaza de San Sebastian. Wander galleries filled with iconic examples of sculpture, photography and paintings by Ecuadorian artists. 

Explore historic downtown by foot, with stops at Calderon Park and the San Francisco market. Experience Cuenca’s own version of central park with your informative guide.

After, visit the Old Cathedral. Built in the 1500s, the original structure is now a unique museum that pays homage to the ornate architecture of the cathedral. Next, your guide will take you to the New Cathedral, where Neo-Gothic style architecture reigns supreme. 
Be sure to check out the gold leaf canopy—Ecuador’s oldest-once inside.

Finally, stop off at the Homero Ortega Panama Hat factory, where these form and fashion staples have been manufactured for decades. Learn about the process before heading to the barranco, where colonial-style houses rest along the Tomebamba River. Take a peek 
at the famed ‘broken bridge’ and stop over at Turi, where an impressive overlook offers up panoramic views of Cuenca before traveling back to your hotel.

Our tour guide was awesome. My husband and I were the only 2 English speakers in a group of 10. The guide made sure to interpret for us frequently. At not time did we feel left out or like we were missing out on any information. This required a lot of work on a guides part to keep us in the loop. The tour was well organized and moved at a good pace. Our 2nd Viator tour and thoroughly pleased again. (our first was in Munich, Germany) We will be sure to make you a part of our next trip abroad.

There were three of is altogether on the tour. Juan is an excellent guide. He is energetic and knowledgeable and very polite. We started the tour walking to various churches and markets and land,arks in town. He gave a detailed and lively description of each. We climbed the New Cathedral tower and he was very respectful of my age and needing a catch my breath break. We got in the car and drove to the outlook for photos, the Panama hat factory and I asked for a stop at a ceramic studio which we did. I highly recommend this tour

Juan was our guide and we really enjoyed the walking tour through the old city. He provided a very good history, and a nice overview. Juan was engaging, intelligent, interested in sharing his knowledge and hearing our thoughts and ideas. It was one of the best city tours we've taken. Definitely worth the price and the time.
