Extend your time in Ecuador with time in the vibrant capital. On this fascinating guided visit, you discover the beating heart of a city that carpets the Andean foothills in light and life. The city sits squarely on the equator, but the divide isn’t just hemispheric. Quito offers dramatic contrasts – from the rich history of the colonial center, to bustling markets, to the peak of the Panecillo where the panoramic views of the city are breathtaking. 
Itinerary at a glance
Your guided explorations include a walk in the historic Old Town and a visit to gold-encrusted Iglesia de la Compañía. Atop the volcanic hill known as El Panecillo, take in the panoramic view of the city with its backdrop of snow-capped Andes. You also visit Intiñan Museum to straddle the equator and learn about its history. Late afternoon, you settle into your boutique hotel in the heart of the city. After breakfast the next day, you’ll transfer to Quito Airport for your flight to the Galápagos.
