Colonial town or modern city? Let the contrasts of Quito's historic centre captivate you with their charm, thanks to the magical nightly illumination of the churches and monuments.
Quito at Night Tour Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel at 7:20 pm, you'll climb on board a typical trolleybus, which will take you to the north of Quito. This area of the city is known for its contemporary commercial areas and hotels.
Your guided tour of Quito at night will then take you to the city's historic centre, considered to be the best-preserved colonial town in Latin America. Along your route, let yourself be seduced by the charms of the nightly illuminations of beautiful monuments such as Quito Cathedral, the Archbishop's Palace, and La Compañía Church.
For the finishing touch on your guided evening tour, you'll head up to the peak of El Panecillo. From the hill's viewpoint, which overlooks the Ecuadorian capital, you'll have incredible panoramic views of colonial and contemporary Quito. As well as enjoying this incomparable vista, you'll have the opportunity to take part in a tasting of local food products. You'll try a traditional empanada and a canelazo, a warming drink with a small amount of alcohol in that is popular in the country's mountainous areas.
At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
