"Quite interesting tour."
03/03/2019
Cuenca definitely worth a visit as well as the enchanted city. However the organizational aspects could be better - a menu for lunch is different from the actual available. And there could be a bit more time added to see the town at night. As we were leaving when the lights were just lighting up, and it’s a pity not to see them..

La guía, Marta, nos hizo el viaje muy agradable con su simpatía y conocimientos, con el añadido que tenia que repetir sus comentarios en inglés, para otros viajeros. La comida, estupenda y con posibilidad de escoger entre varios platos. En general, mi mujer y yo quedamos muy satisfechos.

"The tour was well planned and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining."

I would just like to note that there will be quite a bit of walking/hiking, so I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes. Additionally, if you are planning on skipping the add-on menu and finding your own lunch, know that most of the restaurants will be closed and you should think of taking snacks with you.
