    We visited this as part of a Quito tour and it was our favorite stop. Beautiful inside and outside. It has a mystical, serene aura.

    This was a really amazing experience. At the top, the air is thin and it’s so quiet that it feels like a respite from the noisy city below. The swings are a very unique experience and there is a hike if you’re looking for a more adventurous experience. I’d wait until later in your stay to try this, though, when you are acclimated to the altitude. It can be hard to breathe if you’re not used to it.

    We have seen churches and cathedrals all over the World. This one is special and unlike any we have seen. We learned about the history of the church and enjoyed our visit.

    The old town is very historic and filled with buildings from 300 to 500 years old. You can walk the town. Traffic is bad in this city,

    My partner and I decided to visit the Basilica, and we were happy we did. We decided to climb to the top and opted to walk rather than take the elevator, and we thought it was fun to really feel how high up you were going. The views from the top of Quito are magnificent. It’s not the most elaborate or extravagant church we’ve been to, but it was certainly worth it just for the views.

    This was a gorgeous museum full of beautiful and very moving art. I felt badly that I had not heard of Guayasamine. His work is phenomenal. The guide explaining the art did a wonderful job. The tour of his Villa is also amazing. It was organized and well-done. Only $10!

    Wow, what an artist Oswaldo Guayasamín was- painter, sculptor, visionary - so much talent in one man, remarkable! The museum, along with touring is home were a highlight of visiting Quito. Plus the views of the city from high upon the hill where the property sits is amazing!

    We had a great tour of the Equator with a really nice tour guide.
    Would def recommend going here. It was very interesting to see the effect the equator has on water.

    The views of Quito from El Panecillo as "must see" - and the ride to get there is an adventurous uphill climb. We did not walk into the statue but observed it from the ground. There are many touristy shops around the statue and places to grab street food.

    A wonderful place!! It's magical... the only thing I really don't like too much it was the weather... it was funny, in the morning sunny and I the afternoon it was cloudy, the rest was perfect!!!

    Am not a church fan - but love a view, so we visited mainly to climb up to the bell towers.
    The views were great, well worth the entry fee and the climb. Climb was not too steep or far. We also wandered the courtyards, museum and art collection, and exited through the church.
    Clean bathrooms always a plus too !

    Nice park to go for a stroll any time of the day.

    It's much bigger than you would expect in a first glance.

    It has kids parks, basketball, soccer, tennis courts, weird art, a little pond with pedal boats, a botanical garden, a big running track, bike paths, a skate park, a dirty bike park and much more.

    Bathrooms are available in lots of places and it feels pretty secure.

    If you are a runner, this park offers many paths, so you wont get bored.

    Long, Narrow street with great nightlight, live music, and food. If you want to try some guinea pig there is a couple places that serve it here. Indulge in the culture!

    Excellent experience seeing and learning about the amazing artifacts created out of clay. Although no English-speaking tours at that time, I was lent the museum copy of a guide book to assist my way throughout the collection. When I purchased my own collection catalog the friendly museum attendant recommended a drink and pastries they sell; yummy and fun to get more cultural information.

    Beautiful and safe place to go for an easy walk. Only very sad to get to San Pedro River at the end and see it so polluted you do not want your children to touch the sand or the water.
