The actual tour and scenery is great- my guide not so much. All the tour companies all rotate thru the same guides, so in the end they all work for different companies and you'll never know who you'll get. We did several of these type of tours on our trip and had some awesome

Dear Orlando, thank you for your review. However, the guide you mention is not a guide that works for us. I think you did the tour with a different company, we have stopped our operations on March 16th after the Ecuadorian government closed the parks. I hope in the future you have a chance to do one of the tours with us, we will make sure you have the best experience possible! Sincerely, Cuenca Bestours Team

The Devil's Nose train was fun and the views were fantastic. Make sure your seats are on the right side (as you face the engine) of the old wooden train car. The village at the bottom was interesting, with a wood burning oven and fresh hot bread, a demonstration showing how
