    The visit to the family weaving workshop was amazing - so informative and insightful. Absolutely worthwhile!

    I enjoyed the tour. Lots of jewelry shopping at Chordeleg. Loved seeing the guitar makers at St. Bartolomé and the ikat weavers on the way back. We stopped at the beautiful orchid farm, well worth your time. Did not spend enough time in Gualaceo, only went to the market. Our tour seemed like it was about 3/4 of a day, not a full day tour.

    Marilin was a gem of a guide! We had a terrific time tooling around Chordeleg and Gualaceo! We especially loved going along with her to her favorite restaurant, Fritados de Certainteed, where we enjoyed traditional Ecuadorian cuisine. Thanks Marilin!

    The guide was terrific and very knowledgable. As the only non Spanish speaking person he was very good at making sure he translated every detail. A good way to see a couple of small towns outside of Cuenca

    Everything about this tour was fantastic.Sebastian was extremely knowledgeable about the places we visited and also provided a lot of information about Ecuador and Cuenca. His English was near perfect. We made a slight modification to the itinerary to satisfy my request it turned out to be a private tour. The lunch was excellent. I had plenty of time to shop around on my own. Never felt rushed. What a wonderful way to spend the day.
