Galapagos Cruise and Colonial Quito Ecuador Tour

The Classic South America Cruise

8 Days / 7 Nights
From $5,500 Per Person
* flights not included

Summary

Explore Ecuador’s highlights – the capital of Quito, the famous indigenous market of Otavalo, the Middle of the World Equatorial Monument, and of course, the Galapagos Islands. Combine a 4-day Galapagos Islands Cruise (which can be customized to add more days) with a city tour of Quito and its surrounding highlights, and you’ll come away knowing the best that Ecuador has to offer. So many folks travel to Ecuador and simply bypass the mainland, opting to go straight to the Galapagos Islands. But mainland Ecuador is simply beautiful, with its colonial churches in Quito, the Avenue of the Volcanoes, and its large indigenous population. Don’t miss out on Ecuador highlights – add this Quito Ecuador tour to any of our Galapagos Islands Cruises.

Day 1Arrival in Quito

Upon arrival in Quito, one of our guides will greet you and transfer you to your Quito hotel. The capital of Ecuador, Quito is situated at the foot of the volcano Pichincha and is surrounded by hills and snow-capped mountains. The city is known for its colonial churches and well-preserved architecture, and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. The city has nearly one impressive church on every block: there are 86 churches and monasteries built in the 16th and 17th centuries. Much of the architecture reveals a blend of Spanish, Flemish, Moorish, and pre-Colombian styles. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure, strolling along the sidewalks and getting acquainted with this bustling city.
