1914 Original Trolley Quito City Tour

4 Hours

Price Breakdown:


We will visit the historic town center, the largest and best preserved in South America, in one of our original trolleys, which are replicas of the trams that circulated in Quito in the last century.

Visit the Basilica del Voto Nacional Church, where we will make a brief stop for an explanation of its beautiful architecture. Later we move towards the Panecillo viewpoint, an iconic place in the city, renowned for its beauty, with a giant statue of the "Winged Virgin", where you can admire beautiful landscape of colonial and modern Quito. Later we will continue to the Plaza de San Francisco, one of the most well know places of the city that is full of history. From there we will walk to the Plaza Grande, historical and political center of the city, surrounded by innumerable attractions including: the Cathedral, the Palace of Government, the Archbishop's Palace and the La Compañía church.

We will finish our tour visiting the traditional La Ronda neighborhood. On this romantic street, we can find workshops where you will learn with a group of authentic artisans, how their crafts are elaborated, and trades of yesteryear that keep alive the cultural traditions of this charming city.

At the end of the tour, you can visit an exclusive handicraft shop of Ecuadorian producers from different cultures of the country and return to the hotel on your own or have free time for lunch (not included) in the Zona Rosa of the city known as La Mariscal.
