Quito, Ecuador

Extension Image


Your visit to Quito on the base tour is only going to whet your appetite for more of this delightful city, and this extension is the perfect solution. Join us, and you’ll be able to take your time strolling and exploring in the colonial heart, with its handsome buildings, picture-perfect plazas, many museums, and bustling street life. In fact, Quito’s colonial center was named to the UNESCO World Heritage list as far back as 1978, and Ecuador has been proactive in limiting development and preserving the historic charm. Combine that with the city’s “eternal spring” climate and spectacular mountain setting, and this is sure to become one of your favorite South American destinations, too!

Your Price Includes:

  • Accommodations for 2 nights at the First‐Class Hostería Rincón de Puembo
  • 2 meals: Daily breakfast
  • All transfers and baggage handling (where permitted)
