Hi Emily, it's great to hear that from one of our clients !! Every day we learn what our clients like the most. Luckily we are natives of Cuenca and that is why we know everything that Cuenca has to show you. We appreciate your sympathy and your good review. Thank you very much for coming to Cuenca with our agency.
Beautiful places but not...

Beautiful places but not happy with the tour guide Victor bc he mostly spoke Spanish and very little English (we did ask for English tour. On top of that the bus got a problem and we had to wait for a new bus to get back. Bad experience? B. USA

Hello there, We are glad that you liked what you saw on the tour. We may apologize, however we disagree with your comments. The tour is bilingual, and Victor gives the same explanations in English as in Spanish. We can guarantee future clients that explanations in English will be correct, as well as in Spanish. Sorry to tell the truth, but you were not attentive at any time during the tour, and you constantly distanced yourself from the group while talking, so we cannot understand your comment. We respect all the criticisms but you have to be faithful to reality. Although it is true that we changed buses, the change was made during the guided walking tour and the new bus was waiting for you when the tour ended. In addition, the new bus had the courtesy of picking you up and taking you to the Convent of San Pablo so that you did not have to walk up the hill. We take this opportunity to thank our driver for his courtesy. Thank you very much for coming.
Cuenca and Enchanted Forest
, Apr 2020
Guide was very good. Scenery was amazing, and lunch was delightful. I would definitely recommend. The Enchanted Forest is unbelievable.
Off the beaten path
, Mar 2020
Marta was a wonderful guide. It took about 2 hours maybe a little more to arrive at the enchanted city, but thoroughly enjoyed the hike through the park. It was very cool. We opted for the included lunch, and let’s say it was very regional. The local appetizers were not for me, but the main plate of lamb was very good. The tour of Cuenca was very good and the Cathedral was beautiful, wish we had more time to explore. It was a full 12 hour day and great to see another area of Spain.

Evening view of Cuenca
, Feb 2020
We really enjoyed our day trip to Cuenca. The Enchanted City is fascinating and we were so lucky to see deer, lizard and a snake sunning itself as well as the super cool rock formations. Cuenca old town is a sight to behold. Built on the side of a cliff the views here are spectacular. Our guide Jorge was knowledgeable, friendly and had excellent English. I would suggest doing included lunch as nothing much is open at the break due to siesta. We found a bakery but you are dropped in the newer part of town for lunch and there’s nothing to do. It’s a long day but well worth it!
