What people are saying about Cuenca, Spain

A place to visit without a doubt. It is an exhausting but satisfying excursion, both to the Enchanting City and to Cuenca itself. We left at 8:30 a.m. from the Plaza del Conde de Casal, my family and I took the bus from Recoletos, line 14, which leaves you right there, it takes about 20 minutes both there and back, since the metro has to make transfers and it takes longer. The excursion lasts about eleven to twelve hours and thanks to the guide Fernando, who is a crack, it became very bearable for us, explaining every detail of the places we visited and the bus driver Laura, always attentive to everyone and giving us facilities to feel comfortable at all times. I would not like to tell anything about what I have seen because, as I say, you have to live them in person and so that each one values their experience.

The enchanted city was awesome and so was the city of Cuenca. The guide, Fernando was very friendly and outgoing, he's very knowledgeable regarding the tour information. Had a great time in both places. I highly recommend it specifically if Fernando is the guide.

I heartily recommend !!!! great guide Fernando. unforgettable impressions. beautiful photos. this tour cannot be missed. Great organization and a good safe driver.

Really good and informative. Mixed group Spanish and English speaking but the guide really took the time to ensure everyone had all of the information.

An amazing trip suggested to both foreigners and local. Knowledgeable and helpful tour guide. Definitely worths the trip.
