Quito Ecuador Tours & Vacation Packages
The narrow cobbled streets of Quito city center are the highlight of this warm and lively capital, and one of the world’s best-preserved old towns, brimming with grand colonial facades, monasteries, and churches. A Quito tour of the historic center leads you from its integral Independence Plaza to some of the prettiest buildings in Latin America, including the famous La Compañía de Jesús church which took some 160 years to complete and is considered one of the finest ever examples of Spanish Baroque architecture.
Poised between peaks at the foot of Pichincha (an active volcano in the Andes), the wilds of Ecuador are on Quito’s doorstep. Escape the city into the stunning surroundings with a tour from Quito to nearby Mindo Cloud Forest, Cotopaxi National Park, or visit the equator itself at the “Mitad del Mundo” (Middle of the World) monument or colorful Otavalo market, one of the largest indigenous markets in all Latin America.
