Esteban was very flexible. The tour to the hat factory was interesting as we learned that the so-called Panama hat is actually an Ecuadorean hat. The viewpoint was a good choice. We had already seen the Catedral Nueva so he took us to the Catedral Antigua. There was sufficient history lesson. He explained Calderon Square, flower market, San Francisco Square and the women's artisanal market. He gave us time to photograph and he obliged to take our group photos.
