Catch “the golden hour” on the cobblestone streets of Guápulo - Quito’s bohemian hangout. This tour visits one of the best lookouts in the area as the sun sets on the volcanoes and hills east of Quito before winding down among art-covered walls to the famous, old Guápulo church.
Next on the tour, we take a local bus ($0.25) up the back of Guápulo to the barrios of La Vicentina and La Floresta, to taste some of the most classic Ecuadorian dishes in existence, made by people steeped in the tradition of making excellent-tasting typical food.
A great tour to get the feel for how beautiful an Andean evening can be, and how Ecuadorians like to enjoy their time after a long day at work at a diversity of agachaditos, huecas and street-food stops. Come with us to see for yourself!
