Quito- is 3 days too much? short trip around?

Hi We are booked for a trip to the Galapagos from Quito so we were thinking to come 3 days in advance to enjoy it- not on a weekend- is it worth it?

could you recommend any excursions in or outside the town?

many thanks

Quito is a wonderful city and there is a ton of things to see and do. I recommend the new hop-on, hop-off bus the first day to acclimate yourself to the city and the altitude.

Take a look at the Top Questions on the right (What is there to see/do) and pick out all the things that interest you. Once you have a list, we can help you narrow it down.

Quito is definitely worth some time. As azbu said, lookk at some of the info on Quito to give you some ideas. 3 days might be a lot if you were to just stay in Quito, but there are some wonderful days trips in the area.
