8 hours Walking tour with a local guide!
In all those years working as a tour guide I discover something. . . Quito has much more to offer than a standard 3 hours itinerary. . . Quito is more! Quito is Gastronomy, Art, People, Monuments, Hidden Corners like convents, houses, churches, and markets.
Quito has approximately 44 churches, convents, and chapels in the old city, in 320 hectares. It's a very long city (55 kilometers long times 12 kilometers wide) with over 3 million inhabitants.
One the most amazing example of our Spanish Heritage is the Baroque church of "Compañia de Jesus", a golden Church in which many architectural styles (classic, syncretism, quiteño baroque and Arabian) converge. Other famous churches are San Francisco, The Cathedral, La Merced.
Let's Discover Quito's hidden secrets together!
Pick up from your hotel to do a 8 hours walking tour, discovering the most beautiful places. Along the day we visit Basilic, Saan Francisco, The Cathedral, Compania de Jesus, Santo Domingo, Pizarro Palace, some private houses, official Buildings, Neighborhoods like La Ronda, San Marcos. View points like Panecillo hill or Saint John or Itchimbia hill.
I challenge you to discover Quito!!!
