To use your Bucket Pass, you must arrive at the "Ecuador Gallery" station. We recommend taking the Ecovia transport and get off at the Manuela Cañizares stop and go to Reina Victoria streets N24-263 and Lizardo García or take a taxi.

Please be aware that there are no reserved seats in the Quito Tour buses. Keep your bus tickets (which are going to be exchanged when you scan your Bucket Pass) because these allow you to hop on and off the bus. If you lose it, you will have to buy a new ticket.

 

The Original City Tour in Trolley

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

Visit to the Basilica del Voto Nacional Church, where we will make a brief stop for an explanation of its facade, to later move towards the Panecillo viewpoint, an iconic place in the city, renowned for its beauty, and where is a giant statue of the "Winged Virgin", where you can admire a beautiful landscape of colonial and modern Quito. Later we will continue to the Plaza de San Francisco, one of the representative places of the city and full of history, from where 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 meeting the traditional La Ronda neighborhood, in whose romantic setting we can find workshops where our visitors will learn with a group of authentic artisans, how their works are elaborated, and trades of yesteryear that keep alive the cultural traditions of this charming city. (Entrance to churches are not included). 

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, to continue in the afternoon optionally with our excursions: “Northern and South Hemisphere Experiencie in the Middle of the World” or “Culture & Traditions of Quito” or “Quito, Street food & art” or “Urban Legends of Quito at night”, and to know deeply, because Quito was the first city in the World to be declared a World Heritage Site.
