Walking tour of Cuenca

Go for a guided walk around the elegant colonial city of Cuenca with its cobblestone streets, beautiful gardens and serene squares.

Elegant colonial architecture lines the cobbled streets of Cuenca, Ecuador's prettiest city. It's a university town, proud of its artistic and intellectual heritage, where three rivers meet beneath sky-blue cathedral domes in a glorious year-round spring climate.

The best way to soak up the atmosphere is on foot, ambling along winding alleyways and through idyllic gardens overlooked by ironwork balconies. While you’re here don’t miss picking up a Panama hat – it's here that the misnamed millinery is made.
