Trip Report Quito City Tour

Jump to last reply

I recently returned from touring Ecuador and I would like to give a high recommendation to our quide in Quito, Patricia Rivas Garica of Quito city tours
( I got her name from a travel writer who had recently written an article about travel in Quito and I thought if he liked the tour,I would to.The tour is called Secret Places of Quito and it allowed us to climb along roof tops and into bell towers of the San Augustine church for amazing views of Quito as well as a fascinating look into the restoration process of the paintings, murals and frescoes of the historic church. I was impressed with how kindly she treated the street vendors as we hoofed it through the city and, of course, by how informed she was about the history of the city and its churches. It was a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable day.
