Quito was the first city in the world dubbed a World Heritage city by UNESCO. You will see it in all its colonial splendor – San Francisco Square, the Cathedral and the 150 foot tower at La Merced. Then it´s on to the Middle of the World Monument, where you will literally straddle the equator. The tower marking the spot has an interesting cultural museum. Then it´s back to rest at your hotel or walk around the Mariscal in the evening – full of the city´s best bars and restaurants.

Stay the night in a restored hacienda amidst stunning scenery.

Day 4: Avenue of the Volcanoes Tour

In the afternoon, continue through spectacular scenery to Riobamba, with views of Chimborazo: Ecuador´s highest peak.
