I am an economist, educator and professional guide. I have focused my career in Quito "Cultural Heritage of Humanity" since 2015, I love this city, its legends, its culture. I will try to provide the most spectacular experience from the Middle the World. I lived in the States, I was an exchange student in West Virginia, and I used to go to New York, Chicago and Boston back and forth during many years. Ecuador is number one in the world for many reasons: we are first Cultural Heritage of Humanity declared in 1978, also the most biodiverse country in the world per unit of surface, the first shout of independence in Latin America (1809). As it is written in a wall of the Cathedral, we are the crattle of the Cristianity in South America, and Consagrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Virgin Mary. I simply love my country and city.
Transportation in a private car is included.

Then we will visit an etnomuseum at the Center of the World and drop you for a cebiche or any typical dish at a Mall in New Quito
