Quito is one of the highlights of any Ecuador Tour, and a tour of the city should not be missed. The city high in the Andes offers an amazing cultural variety and historical richness. Our Quito City Tour shows you the most beautiful churches, buildings, streets, and plazas.
Ecuador’s capital is home to 2.2 million Quiteños. With a length of approximately 18 miles it is only between 1 and 3 miles wide, making it easy to discover the most interesting sites that are very close together. Dedicate some time to this city on your Ecuador journey.
