Guided Tour Cuenca and River Gorge

With our Private Guided Tour Cuenca and River Gorge you will discover one of the most spectacular Old Towns of Spain and its surrounding Karst landscape. It is the best way to learn about this Medieval Town of Cuenca with its famous Hanging Houses.

Our Private Tour is a very comfortable experience, because we´ll pick you up with our Mercedes Benz Van at your Hotel or the Ave Train Station.

First of all we´ll drive you through the spectacular River Huecar Gorge till the Castle District, situated in the Upper Part of Cuenca, so you don´t have to climb up steep hills. From here begins a guided walking tour through the Medieval Town, which was designated a World Heritage Site by the Unesco in 1996.

With our experienced guide Jurgen you´ll discover the most stunning views over the gorges. At the same time you´ll walk down through the narrow streets to the Plaza Mayor, you´ll learn about old histories and legends of this unique historic site.

The Quarter of the Old Alcázar

We have to climb a short flight of steps to the Quarter of the old Alcázar. Arabs, Jews and Christians lived here,.. but what remains of the past? We speak about the history of the old buildings of this quarter. Some were palaces, … what happened with them? We observe the Torre de Mangana, but what´s was its original function before it was a clock tower?

Street Alfonso VIII

From the old Alcázar we walk down to the Street Alfonso VIII. Why are the Houses painted with these red, oranges and yellow colors? And why has the Blue House an entry at the second floor?

The Quarter of the Hanging Houses

We leave behind the beautiful colored houses to enter the interesting Quarter of the Hanging Houses. Here we obsere some very tall houses, but how should we call them? Skyscrapers, or…? We finish our Guided Walking Tour next to the most famous Houses of Cuenca and the San Pablo Bridge.
