Photo opportunities abound in Quito 's Old Town, the second biggest colonial centre in the Americas. Quito city tours take in the Sucre Theatre, the Presidential Palace, the Plaza de Independencia, numerous spectacular churches with intricate architectural designs, and the walk around the historical centre finishes at San Francisco, one of the grandest of Quito 's churches. Here it is possible to take a coffee break in a coffee shop that has been built into the catacombs of the fabulous church.

Afterwards, time permitting, your Quito city tour will visit the Panecillo, Quito 's Virgin who looks over the city and protects it. The view of both Quito's north and south from here is amazing, and it is possible to trace the route that you took while walking in the pretty colonial streets of old town.

Quito city tours can be combined with a cable car trip, or an equator tour. Contact us to find out how to organize these trips or to include them in your customized Ecuador tour.
