Experience two of the most interesting destinations in our country. After hotel pick up we will drive to Alausi, a little town considered a national heritage. As we arrive we will have time to explore the Indigenous market that takes a place every Sunday. Afterwards you will take the train known as "The Devil’s Nose". In its day it was considered one of the greatest feats of engineering that the world had seen.

This railway was built in 1899 with the intent of linking the coastal city of Guayaquil with the highlands capital of Quito. This amazing ride traverses and descends an almost perpendicular mountain face by using switchbacks. Many lives were lost in the construction of this extraordinary railway.

Our trip continues on the Pan-American Highway to Ingapirca, which is the major Inca archeological site in Ecuador. You will have the chance to appreciate one of the most important Inca structures, an elliptical platform known as the “Sun’s Temple”. Courtyards, terraces and various other ruins are found here as well. After a full day of touring we will return to Cuenca.

We will have a 2 course lunch included.
