History and Culture from our ancestors and our current life.
Quito is known for its treasures of colonial churches, paintings, sculptures and carvings. The Spanish Colonial Period extends from the XVI to the XVIII Century. Ecuadorian colonial art combines the European Renaissance and Baroque styles with the indigenous and mestizo influences.
Quito is the only site on the planet where the Equator crosses over highlands.
You can Shop and place one foot on the northern Hemisphere and the other on the southern Hemisphere. It happens just in the Middle of the world.
In the morning, I will pick you up from your hotel. Then, We will go to the Old Town to visit Plaza Grande, churches like La Compañia de Jesús, San Francisco, Santo Domingo; La Ronda Street. Later, We continue to the Panecillo hill, it is a view point to look at the city. When We finish the Old Town, the plan is to go to the Cable Car "Teleférico" where it is possible to see all Quito because you will be in 4200 meters over sea level. In the afternoon, we will be in the Middle of the World visiting the monument to the Equator line and Intiñan museum. At the end of the day, We will be able to visit the Pululahua Volcano. Back to the hotel
Do not forget, itinerary is very flexible.
Lunch could be in the middle of the world or in the old town, it depends of our friends.

We loved our guide, Gustavo! We had a 14 hour layover in Quito and wanted to explore the town. He responded to our emails promptly. We landed early and he was ready for pick up. He is knowledgeable about Quito and very accommodating, took us to places we wanted to visit plus other main attractions. Great personality and overall great guy! Vehicle was clean and comfortable, charger ready for phones, and bottled water ready for us. If you visit Quito and need a guide, Gustavo is your guy!
