Exploring can be done on your own, but a guide will provide much more information that will enrich your experience. Ask your hotel concierge for assistance. Sturdy shoes are useful.

I had no expectations and didn't know much about Quito. I would go back there in a heartbeat. Beautiful old township. Lovely central park, alfresco dining, heritage buildings, cobbled streets - just quaint and very appealing.

Mostly well patrolled and lit, be aware of pick-pockets and shady people. Lots of museums and churches to see. Hip coffee shops and fun alleys to get lost down.

Quito's historical center is beautiful during the day and at night time, in both cases a completely different display. You need two days to get to see most of it.

There is a church in every block in old town. Most of them have wonderful art inside. They usually open for service and they usually have a sign at the door for the open hours for tourists.
