Everything was great--the tour guide was awesome!!!

Reviewed by: Susan W, August 2014

The guide, Juan, could not have been any better. I asked if he would give the tour in Spanish since I have been learning the language over the last 7 years. He gave detailed descriptions of each place including the history, construction techniques, etc. For my personal interest it was the perfect tour During lunch I asked him to write down some intersting music, literature, and movies to help me continue learning about the ruins, Cuenca and Ecuador. From this list I can continue learning when I return home.
