The Original Quito City Tour in Trolley with Hotel Pick-up

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Quito hotel or at the Galería Ecuador and head out on your informative city tour. Board a replica traditional trolley and navigate the streets of the La Mariscal financial neighborhood and take in extraordinary views from sky-high vantage points throughout the city.

    Wander through the old world streets and make a stop at the Basilica of the National Vow, considered to be the largest neo-gothic temple in the Americas. Then make your way to Panecillo Mirador, Quito’s most famous hill. Marvel at the juxtaposition of colonial and contemporary as you look out over the capital city.

    Head to Independence Plaza, where locals and tourists gather for street performances, conversation, and entertainment and make a visit to the Presidential Palace and the Government’s Palace.

    Explore the Church of the Jesuits and admire its intricate gold leaf and gilded plaster decorations before ending on the traditional La Ronda Street lined with artisan stores and old houses.

    Then, visit a local ice-cream parlor and taste traditional Ecuadorian flavors before discovering a craft hat store.

    Your expert guide will offer up information and commentary on tour before taking you back to your original departure point.
