Duration: 6 hours (daily)
Enjoy a leisurely tour through Colonial Quito taking place in the most important and famous sights. You will visit the Plaza de Independencia overlooked by the Parliament Building, scene of many revolutions in Ecuador’s brief but dramatic history. Included in the itinerary is a visit to the Compañia and San Francisco churches with their impressive façades and gold leaf covered interiors that have changed little since the days of the Spanish. The tour is completed with a drive up to the Panecillo hill where you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of Quito and the surrounding mountains. We continue to visit Museo Guayasamin, also known as the Chapel of Man, where you can appreciate the work of the Ecuadorian master painter and sculptor of Quechua and Criollo heritage. Finally, we´ll have lunch at a typical restaurant where you can relax and enjoy typical Ecuadorean cuisine.
