City Tour

The beautiful Quito City Tour begins by exploring this beautiful big city, learning something about its turbulent history and taking in some of the most impressive places the city has to offer.

Quito is the highest constitutional capital city in the entire world, yet the looming volcanos and tranquil Andean mountain peaks surrounding Quito provide a stark reminder of the serene landscapes all around.

You will do a wonderful full walk along the main streets, plus quick stops in the most beautiful spots of Quito’s colonial town, in order to see the incredible structures, buildings, monasteries, churches, and squares lighted up by the splendid colors! In our Quito city tour, you will get a sense of the architecture, history, and culture, due to its many historical architectural monuments, UNESCO declared the old part of town a world heritage site in 1978.

We will make a quick stop at San Francisco Square, this was once a bustling hub of activity during the colonial period, but is now a quiet place for reflection where one can cast their gaze over the beautiful city and the neighboring volcanoes.

From the Panecillo hill in the South of the old part of town, where the high monument of the Virgen of Quito stands at 43 m, you have an impressive prospect. From here you have wonderful views over the red clay tile roves of the old part of town, the skyline of Quito in the North, as well as the surrounding Andean cordilleras range with its outstanding snow-covered mountain giants.
