This one-day cultural tour takes you to the highlights of the historical center of Quito, the capital of Ecuador. The city of Quito is also listed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. It was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city and it stands at an altitude of 2,850 m. In the morning, you will visit Quito’s highlights, including the Panecillo, the Basilica, and the San Francisco church. You will stroll through the lovely streets and Plazas of the old town. After, you will have a local lunch “almuerzo” in the Mariscal area. Then you will drive for approximately 45 minutes to visit the Intiñan Equator Museum, located 200 meters from the Middle of the World Monument, and after that, you will have time to go to the Pululahua’s Crater.
I am Rebecca Braak. I have a Masters Degree in International Management. Several years ago, I decided to go to Ecuador to volunteer on a horse ranch in the Andes. It was a new culture for me, a new language, but also a new opportunity to start from scratch. That’s when I started Rebecca Adventure Travel, a Tour company located in Quito, Ecuador. My goal with this company is to design the most impressive trips through the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. With my experience with horses, tourism and business, both in Holland and Ecuador, I am sure these tours will offer an incredible experience. All tours are personally selected by me, and co-hosted by Andres Reinoso, who has an MBA on Tourism Enterprises and more than 10 years of experience in the tourism industry.
