The tour was really amazing. With charm, patience and friendliness, the guide accompanied us throughout the day in English and Spanish. Even with the numerous photo enthusiasts, he calmly let everyone take the perfect snapshot or even offered his photo skills himself. Learning about everything first hand from a locale was not only interesting but also more unique than a normal stripped down tourist manuscript. Thumbs up for Fernando, who brought his love for Spain a thousand times closer to us. I can really recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy the country air, nature and wonderful views combined with a tracking experience away from the crowds

Excellent Tour organization with good guide and driver to start off the trip, We whole heartley enjoyed the day trip to Cuenca. It was raining and gloomy but our guide's passion effectively took us back to history. I would definitely recommend without any hesitation.

A pesar del mal tiempo. La experiencia fue maravillosa y la historia contada desde el punto de vista del arte te da un conocimiento extra. Nos ha gustado mucho y la guía Marta ha sido genial.

Fernando was very knowledgeable at the park and the city. This tour had a nice amount of walking and the hanging houses were beautiful. Would definitely recommend wearing outdoor gear.
