What people are saying about Cuenca, Spain

Had an amazing trip to visit Cuenca and the Enchanted City. Our Tour Guide, Fernando was so knowledgeable, helpful, kind and very thoughtful. He made sure we had a great experience. He shared all the history, attractions, culture. We had a 15mth baby with us at the time and he made sure we saw and did everything the rest of the group did. We also had a very patient and kind group. Be prepared to walk a lot. Have good walking or hiking shoes. Dress for the weather. It is windy touring the Enchanted City.

Me and my family took this tour back in November 14, 2022 and it was excellent: equal parts educational and fun! The guide, Fernando, was AMAZING; you could tell how passionate he is about his job and Cuenca, and he was also VERY patient with the group. About the tour itself: be ready to walk a lot, so comfy shoes are a must, as well as water, and be ready to take lots of photos and to enjoy all that Cuenca has to offer.

Undoubtedly the best tour I've done on the peninsula. Beautiful itinerary and incredible professionalism of the guide Fernando from the company Conqueando. Highly recommended for price, quality and above all the close, friendly, professional and concerned treatment of the guide. Do not hesitate, it is very worth it

Fernando was very knowledgeable at the park and the city. This tour had a nice amount of walking and the hanging houses were beautiful. Would definitely recommend wearing outdoor gear.

Excellent day in Cuenca. Totally recommend the tour with the guide Fernando.
