This is the main arqueological Inca complex of Ecuador, 70 km (44 miles) north of Cuenca. Here we learn about the Incas, who were the first conquers of this land, and also about the "Canaris" the native inhabitants of this area. To go to Ingapirca we drive two hours north, trough the Andean moutais enjoying a wonderful landscape, along the way we pass several small villages, also is possible to visit the basilic of Biblian ( an impressive church build in a mountain, actully it's rear wall is the mountain itself)).
Once we arrived in Ingapirca we walk throughout the ruins, and I explain the whole history about them, then the place becomes alive. After that, we visit a local museum and then we go for lunch which it can be in a old hacienda "Posada Ingapirca". Then retun to Cuenca.

Carlos was one of the best guides I have ever used from your website. Very professional, knowledgeable, and sophisticated. He was an excellent driver and extremely fluent in English. His vehicle was top notch. We can recommend Carlos with no reservations whatsoever. Other guides spoke highly of him as well, including one who said he was the best guide in Cuenca.
