Quito Tours and UNESCO heritage sites

With a new airport, it is now easier than ever to embark on a Quito tour. Quito is nestled among the Avenue of the Volcanoes in central Ecuador. The first city to earn UNESCO World Heritage status, Quito is said to have more churches per capita than any other Latin American city. Stroll through the historic old town, visit the Cathedral, and Plaza de la Independencia on a tour of Quito. But Quito is not just a historic city; the modern part is decorated with parks, plazas, shopping centers, restaurants, and bars. The influx of retired ex-pats, attracted by free healthcare and the affordable cost of living, gives the city an international flair. Spend the night at a 4 star hotel and enjoy a Quito Ecuador tour before heading off to the Galapagos Islands – or add an extra day in Quito to visit the Mitad del Mundo museum or the Otavalo Market.
