Quito Old Town and Middle of the World Tour

We begin our day with a visit of one of the most beautiful parts of Quito – The Historic Old Town, located in the center of Quito. The name itself resonates with wonder and romances! Designated by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage Site, this city is regarded as the most beautiful and stylish one in the Andes.

Our next stop is The Panecillo (the little bread loaf), rising over the southern edge of the old town and crowned by a magnificent 30-m (98-ft) high statue of the Virgen of Quito. A long flight of steps leads to the summit. Here Quito presents itself, spread out like a blanket of pearl white miniature houses enclosed by green hills.

In the afternoon, our guide will take you to the Equator! Take your picture at the Mitad del Mundo as you stand simultaneously in both the Southern and the Northern Hemispheres. Learn about the rich culture of Ecuador with a visit to the equator museum. During our stop at Museum Intiyan, you can see for yourself the uniqueness of this midpoint. Watch the water swirl down the drain clockwise and counter-clockwise, or defy gravity by balancing an egg on the tip of a nail.

We had a great experience with our tour guide Stui! He told us so much about the volcanos, the history and people of the region! We enjoyed the tour because we got to taste Bizcochos at the place where they are made, we went to Lago de San Pablo, the Otavalo market, Cotacachi and hiked a bit in Cuicocha to see the beautiful lake! This experience was amazing,many thanks to our guide Stui, you are going a great job!!!

Working with this company has been a pleasure. Christina was responsive, helpful, thoughtful, accommodating and extremely pleasant to work with. Waita Lodge is THE PLACE TO STAY in the Amazon. Owned and operated by local Ecuadorians, you get their true experience, and with passion, of the Amazon from people with an authentic love and care for the local community and environment of the Amazon. The food was amazing, meals prepared beautifully, service attentive and the environment homey. Portion of the profits go to advocacy efforts in the local communities of the Amazon.



Very good organization; always fast communication/response by Pablo/EcuaTraveling. The program took us to places and people we would not have selected/visited and that made it unique. The acclimatization tour @ Iliniza Norte was a great choice!
