This tour departs from Quito. As you head north on the Pan-American Highway, you'll pass through Guachalá (which is home to an old Mitad del Mundo monument) and eventually make a stop Cayambe, where you'll taste the town's famous biscuits. These biscuits, which are prepared in a clay oven and served with cheese, are utterly delicious.

After enjoying the food, you'll continue on and make a brief stop at a viewpoint that overlooks Lake San Pablo—take pictures and soak up the beautiful scenery. Once you arrive at the town of Otavalo, you'll explore the marketplace, where local vendors sell a number of items. Search for hats, sweaters, necklaces, textiles, and more here.

Tour participants also have the opportunity to continue on to Cotacachi, a town that's known for producing high-quality leather goods. After exploring Otavalo (and perhaps Cotacachi), you'll return to Quito.
