  • We joined our four friends for an amazing cooking class of “Potatoes and Peppers.” Sebastian, our guide, led us on an amazing taste and cultural tour of the city market (which we had visited before on our own, but that was a completely different experience). We tasted fruits and were treated to a variety of fruit juices which we’d never tasted before, while we learned so much about Ecuadorean society and life in Cuenca.

    Then we arrived at the restaurant for the cooking class, where Tatiana showed us how to make four different kinds of aji (salsas piquantes), llapingachos, locro, potato tamales, and a potato cake. We were fully engaged in the cooking, and after we’d finished the preparations, we sat down to a sumptuous Ecuadorean meal. It is a high point of our trip so far, and we highly recommend it to anyone who visits Cuenca. Sebastian was so friendly, informative, and helpful—we enjoyed every minute!

    All interactions with the company were easy and positive; all arrangements were made flawlessly, and we were well taken care of in all respects.

  • The horseback riding was fantastic! Andreas (our guide and driver) is a very easy going and nice man. At the hacienda he explained about the horses and we could pick the one we liked. The horses are very good looking and the saddles in perfect shape. Riding in this scenery is amazing, relaxing and peaceful and even for beginners it’s a great experience.

  • We’d like to say thank you to Ximena, a true professional. Thanks to her and her patience our trip was an absolute success and we spent unforgettable days in Ecuador and the Galapagos.
