First, we’ll go to the "Inti-Nan" In-Situ Museum (at about 2400 meters above sea level, about 7800 feet), where you can see replicas of the Ecuadorian Highlands and Amazon and, of course, to learn about the Quitu-Cara culture, their comprehension, long before the Geodesic Mission, on the stars, and, therefore, the empowerment of the term "Center of the World"; this visit takes about 45 minutes (entrance not included).

I went on a private tour with a local guide and saw the Spanish and other influences on the architecture, but two important issues...lack of oxygen - 8,000 ft above sea level - catch your breath that has just been taken by the breath-taking sights....More

Go on a Saturday night! Music everywhere, street performers, packed with people for an authentic Ecuadorian night out. Try the canelazo and eat some typical food... the huge empananadas. Mm!

This is a visit any tourist should not miss. I love colonial Quito by night because it is quieter and the churches and monuments look beautiful under the light. It is always a little chilly so you should take a coat to feel warm

we were with a gate 1 tour and our guide, Alfredo was very knowledgeable. It was very clean and we felt very safe. The buildings were amazing as was the surronding scenery.
