    My husband and I had what turned out to be a private half-day tour of Cuenca given by Sebastian. We had done a "Hop On, Hop Off" tour of Cuenca the day before (frankly, to kill some time before check-in), and it gave us a basic overview of the city, but was minimal in quality.

    Dear Elvlin, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are really glad to hear that you fell in love with Cuenca.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Cuenca. Our guide Sebastian, whose English is excellent, gave us a great introduction to the city. He took us to places we would not have found otherwise (the ceramics shop and the last tin smith in Cuenca) which was really special.
