Ranked #18 of 136 Tours in Quito

Attraction details
Owner description: First, we’ll go to the "Inti-Nan" In-Situ Museum (at about 2400 meters above sea level, about 7800 feet), where you can see replicas of the Ecuadorian Highlands and Amazon and, of course, to learn about the Quitu-Cara culture, their comprehension, long before the Geodesic Mission, on the stars, and, therefore, the empowerment of the term "Center of the World"; this visit takes about 45 minutes (entrance not included).

The Old Town was interesting. Up and down hills on narrow streets. We saw many churches from the 15 and 16th centuries and surrounding intesting monuments and buildings. Great tour.

Out of misconceptions, lack of information, we sometime underestimate the fullfilling role of a country , city . That was precisely my case before embarking in the Old Town Tour.
All the places emanate history, which you have to dig out. The Seven Crosses road is of particular interest . Other obvious attractions are all along this way. One will come across them inevitably. Museums, churches and even traditional hotels are worth visiting by foot, once you tag them beforehand in you tour

This bus tour highlights the sites of Quito so you can plan your preferences. Things not to miss are "La Compania" , the tour of the President's palace in Plaza Grande and the view of the city from Our Lady of Pichincha.

The tour was a good way to familiarize ourselves with the Old Town of Quito. The tour was very professional. They drive you around and point out 12 different sights to see. You can get off at any of the 12 and take pictures or eat lunch and get back on a different bus and continue the tour. The price was 12.00 per person but only 6.00 if you are a senior. Would highly recommend it.
