Old Town has many historical and beautiful buildings. There are also several stores and restaurants to visit. It's a great place to sit and people watch.

Was a good tour. They take you to a lot of the main attractions. It's a good starting point for knowing where you want to go and spend more time later. Some of the informative bits are a bit long. Definitely recommend at the start...More

We enjoyed the old town but wished there were more pedestrian walking areas, shops, restaurants and hotels. You can see most of it in a couple hours.

A totally different experience than the Mariscal area, well worth checking out. Cobblestone streets and some of the buildings date back to the 17th century.

Vibrant old town with friendly people, lots of hawkers selling local crafts. Shouldn't be missed as it gives a overview of the country.

I'm told Quito was the very first city to be awarded the honor of being a World Heritage City by UNESCO ... and the stunning old city center must be the reason why. I can not recommend highly enough how satisfying and enchanting a stroll...More

There is a church in every block in old town. Most of them have wonderful art inside. They usually open for service and they usually have a sign at the door for the open hours for tourists.
