This tour covers history, architecture, living cultures, crafts, photography, shopping, tourist attractions and unique landscapes but above all, it wants to share the heritage of the people and the city.
What to Expect
Begin the tour in the northern part of Quito, touring the most important commercial areas where most of the hotels are located. Then, head to the historic center to visit the Basilica del Voto Nacional and make a brief stop. Afterwards, head to the Plaza de la Independencia, where through a walking route you will see the cathedral, the Government Palace, the Archbishop's Palace and the La Compañia Church, recognized for its adornments and gold altars.
The tour will continue towards the Church of San Francisco, built in the seventeenth century. (Entrance to churches are not included). Then, head to the Mirador del Panecillo (entrance included), a place renowned for its beauty where you can admire a beautiful landscape of colonial and modern Quito.
After the tour, passengers can either return to their hotel or have time for lunch in the Zona Rosa of the city known as La Mariscal to continue in the afternoon with a few optional excursions to Equatorial Monument or see panoramic Quito or Quito by night. Experience all this on board trolleys, which are a replica of the trams that circulated in Quito in the last century.
