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.

A day trip with Estéban
Dec 2019 • Family
What a great time we had! Our guide, Estéban was well-versed in all the local culture. We had a very immersive experience with him. His sense of humor and his command of the English language made our time with him extra special. He was able to communicate our preferences precisely to the local craftsmen, which resulted in our leaving the various shops completely satisfied with our purchases. Thank you for a rare glimpse of the centuries-old traditions and arts of the rich Ecuadorian culture and the beauteous countryside!
