Quito City Tour + Equatorial Line
If you enjoy history and art, Quito is your perfect destination. Here you will find the least altered and largest Colonial Center in South America which has gone through a seven year $200 million renovation. Quito has a unique blend of modern and old with an offering of upscale hotels and fascinating old churches and monasteries which all served for the New York Times to name it as the place # 15 to go in 2008. As this was not enough, Quito was designated a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978. Together with Krakow, Quito was the first city to be honored with such a title.
