The most meaningful highlight of my time in Quito!
Sophie_O, 13-06-2022
This four-hour tour around the Centro Histórico of Quito was phenomenal. My father and I had the pleasure of going on a private excursion with Pablo, who is a walking encyclopedia of Ecuadorian history, architecture, sociology, and food. We enjoyed a fascinating presentation and tasting at a family-owned chocolatería, visited several monuments and cathedrals, and snacked on a few delicious local treats along the way. Pablo transformed the way we could connect with the city and we walked away with a deeper appreciation for Ecuador, too!
The best of Quito
