Half & Full day tours from Quito
...........


Quito Reality

Quito Reality (Half Day)
code: GT
The concept of this ½ day trip is to show tourists the alternative or "real" side to Quito life, in other words some of the sites that tourists do not usually get to see. The day starts with panoramic city views from the Ichimbia Park (except Wednesdays), followed by a trip to a local fair-trade chocolate factory ... and of course a chance to sample some of the delicious chocolate that is made there! From there we head to the colourful San Roque market to witness the hustle and bustle of locals buying the huge array of tropical fruits, grains, vegetables and even guinea pigs!

Parque Ichimbia
We finish the tour off with an artsy angle visiting both the workshop of a woodcarver who makes traditional spinning tops, and the Capilla del Hombre art gallery which displays the finest works of Ecuadorian artist Guayasamin famed by his moving representations of the struggle of Latin America's indigenous people.
Price includes: Transportation, English speaking guide, and entrance fees.
Excluded: Tips for guide/driver (optional) and personal expenses
From: USD.

The Equator

The Equator (Half day)
code: GT
The city of Quito lies just 22km from the equator so it makes a perfect ½ day add-on to your trip.
We visit three different sites: The pictoresque Pululahua Volcanic Crater; The official equator monument for perfect photos with one foot in each hemisphere; and the Inti Ñan Museum where you are able to perform fascinating scientific tests which only hold true at the equator such as balancing an egg on a nail and witnessing the coriolis Force that sends falling water in different directions in each hemisphere.
Price includes: Transportation, English speaking guide, and entrance fees.
Excluded: Tips for guide/driver (optional) and personal expenses
From: USD.

Otavalo Indian Market

Otavalo Indian Market (full Day)
code: GT
The indigenous town of Otavalo is famous across South America for its handicraft market and colourful inhabitants, but the area also offers far more besides!!!
This tour of course takes you to the famous handicraft market and allows free time for shopaholics to explore the many wares and splurge, but it also takes our tourists a little further off of the beaten-path ... so we also find time for a visit to a fascinating weaving workshop, lunch at the spiritual Peguche waterfall, sampling the delicious bizcochos (biscuits) and cheese at Cayambe, as well as time to see an indigenous family who make and play traditional musical instruments.
An action-packed combo of the best culture, nature and shopping in the Otavalo area!
Price includes: Transportation, English speaking guide, and entrance fees.
Excluded: Tips for guide/driver (optional) and personal expenses
From: USD.

Mindo Nature

Mindo Nature (Full Day)
code: GT
Mindo is a tiny town set amidst some of the most beautiful and peaceful countryside in the entire country. It is a centre for both nature and for adventure activities.
The Nature trip first visits a butterfly farm where you will also be able to see orchids and an array of colourful humming birds for which Mindo is well known for. The rest of the day is spent trekking through the cloudforest with the reward of freetime for lunch, swimming and enjoying the peace and tranquility upon arrival at the picturesque waterfall.
Price includes: Transportation, English speaking guide, entrance fees and lunch.
Excluded: Tips for guide/driver (optional) and personal expenses
From: USD.

Mindo tubing


Mindo Adventure

Mindo Adventure (Full Day)
code: GT
The Adventure trip includes both the adrenalin-rush of a network of flying-fox canopy runs between towers high in the forest casnopy, and a more relaxing afternoon floating on a giant inner-tube down the river. Both are completely different ways of taking in the beautiful cloudforest scenery.
Price includes: Transportation, English speaking guide, entrance fees and lunch.
Excluded: Tips for guide/driver (optional) and personal expenses
From: USD.
