If you enjoy history and art, Quito is your perfect destination. Here you will find the least altered and largest Colonial Center in South America which has gone through a seven year $200 million renovation. Quito has a unique blend of modern and old with an offering of upscale hotels and fascinating old churches and monasteries which all served for the New York Times to name it as the place # 15 to go in 2008.

Difficult: Easy Group: Any Family: Yes Duration: 3.5 Hours

As this was not enough, Quito was designated a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978. Together with Krakow, Quito was the first city to be honored with such a title.Quito, officially San Francisco de Quito, is the capital of Ecuador and was founded in 1534.

It has a population of approximately 1,500,000, making it the second most populous city in Ecuador after Guayaquil. The elevation of the city reaches 2,850 m. (about 9,350 ft.), making Quito the second highest capital city in the world.

  • We will drive through Quito's colonial city. In our fascinating tour we will visit 2 of the 7 viewpoints of the city: Guapulo and Panecillo; you will visit some of the churches including the Basilica, Cathedral, Compañía and San Francisco. We will walk along four important squares called “plazas”: Garcia Moreno, Benalcazar, Grande and San Francisco, we can admire the Presidential palace and to feel Quito at its best, we will walk down the street of La Ronda where you will hear and learn of the city’s most interesting legends.

    If you haven’t experienced the view of Quito at night we also offer our city tour by night. The combination of a night view and a walking in the town centre is an unforgettable experience. You cannot miss this unique opportunity of getting a beautiful view of Quito with its gorgeous lights that showcase the beauty of its monuments, churches and plazas.

  • Iglesia La Compañía: This church was constructed by the Jesuits between 1605 and 1765, in the heart of Quito's historical center. Its elaborate baroque facade was sculpted in stone by indigenous hands. This temple was closed from 1767 to 1807 due to the banishment of Jesuits from Ecuador. It was re-opened by the Chilean friar Camilo Henriquez, from the Order of Buenamuerte, who later participated in the independence struggles of his native land.

    The facade is a marvel of the American barroque and plateresque styles. Six columns of Salomon flank the main entrance, and this was the first time that these pillars had been incorporated into American architectural styling. On entering the temple one is dazzled bye the marvelous harmony of baroque richness and balance, all in gold. Beautiful decoration abounds, covering every inch of the altar-pieces, the chapels, the columns and the dome of the transept, the choir and the tribunes.

    Thousands of people visit the church every day, due to its central location, and its attractive architecture makes it popular with tourists.
