Quito City Tour and Middle of the World PhotoQuito City Tour and Middle of the World Photo

This tour explores both the wonderful city of Quito and the so called "Middle of the World," which is the place where the equator runs through Ecuador. You'll learn a great deal about the history and culture of Ecuador while on this tour.

The tour begins with a visit to the Mirador de Panecillo. This viewpoint overlooks downtown Quito and offers travelers a great way to orient themselves to the city and surrounding area. While here, your English-speaking guide will tell you about the history of Quito and also provide information on the city's economy, culture, attractions, and traditions.

Once you've soaked up the view and taken a few pictures, the tour will continue on to the colonial neighborhoods of Quito. You will walk around for about two hours and visit the most emblematic attractions in Quito, including the Iglesia de San Francisco, Iglesia de la Merced, La Catedral, the Plaza de la Independencia, and the Archbishop's Palace. These are some of the most important sites in the city, and you will surely enjoy visiting them and learning about their history.

Next, you will continue the journey at Mitad Del Mundo, or the "Middle of the Earth." This is where Ecuador's namesake, the equator, runs through the country.
