QUITO CITY TOUR + MIDDLE OF THE WORLD

Full Day

“Come with us and discover the beautiful city of Quito. Nestled in the Andes and located almost directly on the equator, Quito has a setting that few other cities can match.”

The day will start with an incredible variety of culture and history with a visit to Independence Square, or Plaza de La Independencia. This plaza is surrounded by important buildings such as the Archbishop’s Palace, the Presidential Palace and the Cathedral. This beautiful square is very much the cultural heart of Ecuador where Independence took place against the Spanish many years ago. You will also visit the Jesuit Church of La Compañía de Jesus, one of the most impressive in all the Americas with delicately crafted pieces gilded in gold. Continuing you will visit the San Francisco square, once the most important place of commerce in the city. Here you will find the impressive church and monastery of San Francisco, one of the oldest Catholic complexes in Latin America. Afterwards, get ready to feast your eyes on one of the best views of the city from the Panecillo. Sitting atop is the Virgin of Quito who keeps close watch over the city and protects it as it looks down from the top of the hill.

Once you’ve taken in the views, the fun continues at “Mitad del Mundo”. The complex has interesting interpretation exhibits and you may even see traditional folk dances. Finally, a visit to the Intiñan Museum will complete the tour as you learn of the ancestral villages and different regions of Ecuador. The museum is an ode to the sun as they have interactive experiments allowing you to learn more about the magnificent effects the sun produces because of the equator line.

Dear Gabriela,
Good Morning.

My husband Pradip, Vajarias and I want to thank you for organizing our fantastic trip to Peru.

All the tour guides and the transfers were very smooth. Hotels were excellent. All the tour guides organized were very well informed and in Cusco our tour guide helped us to get to the airport safely when there was a transportation strike.

We had amazing experience in Amazon at Refugio Amazonas lodge too.

Thanks again.
