The best of the Unesco sites of Old Quito plus much, much more!


We will begin the day in the morning visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Major Square of Quito and its Cathedral. Then, we will go to the Jesuit Church, considered the most spectacular baroque style, gold gilded church in South America. Later on, we will go to the Plaza of San Francisco and admire the Franciscan church facade. We will continue to La Ronda, one of the signature streets of old Quito recently made famous in the U. S. by Samantha Brown's "Passport to Latin America". We will drive up to the Virgin of Panecillo statue for a spectacular view of the city. I will loan Nikon binoculars to bring interesting things up close. We can then go on to the Middle of the World or the Teleferico (cable car) whichever you like. We will be flexible and add or subtract sites as you express preferences.

This tour can be for up to 10 or more people - see below

A Recent Review of this tour

We were so lucky to book Vivian to tour our family of 6 for a week from Quito to Guayaquil. Vivian is a wonderful communicator and extremely flexible with plans and ideas. She also organised a fantastic driver Havier and a fabulous large bus. She is extremely knowledgeable about her beloved Ecuador and her enthusiasm and constant smile is contagious. We have also fallen in love with this wonderful country and it's fabulous people and can't thank Vivian enough for showing it to us.
