Tour: Cajas National Park including a Cloud Forest hike, Cuenca, Ecuador
Date: Dec 28/17

We were excited to hear that our backup guide to Cajas would be Carlos, who had previously given us a tour of Cuenca. He is prompt, attentive, knowledgeable and passionate about his city and its environs. Although just a teaser to what the park has to offer, the tour provided an opportunity to walk around a few of the many lakes in the Cajas area. Carlos took us to two locations, one lower and another much higher. His knowledge of the plants and animals is vast. Thanks again, Carlos!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again Chad! It was fantastic to take you folks to Cajas. Kind regards! Carlos

Great day with Carlos in Gualaceo and Chordeleg. Carlos is very knowledgeable and filled the day with interesting sites we likely would not have known about if traveling independently. Varied and interesting day. Super nice guy and great tour guide.

What a fabulous tour! Carlos is very knowledgeable about Cuenca (and in general), and I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed ourselves. It was very comprehensive, and I walked away with a plethora of information about the history of this beautiful city. I enjoyed driving through different parts of the city and walking through the historic center. If you are interested in a personalized tour with a knowledgeable and very friendly guide-- this is the one!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Caitlyn You and your mother are so, kind and wonderful people, meet you and show you my city was a privilege. All the best, Carlos

I've already left specific comments about Carlos for the Ingapirca tour. This specific tour was especially enjoyable, specifically because there was so much interaction with the local people. We snacked from different food stalls in a local market, which we would have been reluctant to do on our own. Carlos took us to specific stalls that he has used repeatedly, knowing that the food was good and the hygiene was up to standard. Three of us ate quite a bit and none of us have shown any ill effects.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Royce. All the best for you and your family!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure Royce, thanks for choosing me.

I apologize for taking so long to do this rating. We did a tour outside of Cuenca with Carlos and it was wonderful. He explained things very well. He was flexible and knowledgeable and we had a wonderful experience.

Our Cuencano guide Carlos was gracious and friendly, despite a terrible cold. He was professional and informative at every minute, even though I'm sure he would have preferred to be at home drinking hot tea. We had a lovely day with him, exploring the basilica at Biblian, enjoying lunch at the lovely Posada de Inga Pirca, and exploring the Inca ruins of Inga Pirca. We would happily recommend him to other visitors to Cuenca.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Winn and Dale It was a great pleasure for me to meet and show you my country you were so nice. I had a wonderful time with you and I hope to see you again. All the best, Carlos

Carlos is a great ambassador for Cuenca! He has a vast knowledge of the city, and is very proud of his town and country. He drove us around Cuenca to get us familiar with the area then we did a walking tour of the old town center. Very nice! Thanks Carlos, we look forward to returning and taking some of your other tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Janet and Dave I had a great time with you, you are such a wonderful people, thanks for choosing me to show you Cuenca,I hope you have the change to come back in the future. All the best, Carlos L.

Carlos was a wonderful! My flight to Cuenca was late five hrs. I was able to contact Carlos by phone and he let me know to stay put rather than trying for another flight as he had already checked on the Internet and that was my best option. I finally got here and he was awesome in his knowlege of the history, architecture and culture. We went to all kinds of places in and around Cuenca, totally off the beaten track as well as tourist areas and he knows tons of people. Great company and professional

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorna Thanks a lot for your words, I had enjoyed a lot, showing you my city, and the surroundings areas. Best regards, Carlos
