    What to Expect
    Upon pickup from your Cuenca hotel, meet your local guide and board a comfortable vehicle for your day trip to the local villages of Chordeleg and Gualaceo. 

    Stop first at San Bartolome, nestled in the foothills of the Andes. Get a look at how the town's famous handmade guitars are made through a visit to a local shop. 

    Continue to Chordeleg, walking through the serene town's quiet streets and large central plaza. Stop to admire the intricate gold and silver filigreed jewelry the town is famous for during your free time. 

    Situated on the banks of the Santa Barbara River, the quiet town of Gualaceo is anchored by a central square and church. Discover the variety of textiles and handicrafts sold in the market, like the traditional white straw hats and macanas (shawls), woven from alpaca hair. Hear about the significance behind the birds and flowers featured in the pre-Columbian designs. 

    Stop for lunch (not included) in town before visiting a local textile shop. Learn about the process of traditional weaving and see the artisans in action. 

    Your 7-hour tour ends with drop-off back at your Cuenca hotel.

    Esteban was very fluent in English. He was knowledgeable of the areas visited and the local people. He made the tour interesting and had a great sense of humor. Highly recommend making the tour with Esteban.
