DAY 3 – QUITO Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
After the breakfast, meet your guide at the hotel. Today is the opportunity to discover the heritage city of Quito by awakening travelers´ senses through a journey focused on the traditions that surround this ancient area.
During this tour, travelers will have the opportunity to visit, work, and taste traditional sweets from Ecuador as well as local artisans around La Ronda Street. Then, it´s time to have the first introduction to the cocoa and chocolate process and tastes by the hand of the most renowned chocolate shop, Pacari.
After producing many endorphins with the chocolate tasting, the group will continue walking the city center listening to the stories and history of the streets and ancient building until reaching the local family that prepares the traditional sweet called “Colaciones.” After all, this tasting, smelling, and touching experiences is time for an eye candy that blows traveler’s mind, and it´s no more than the Compania Church with its Golden walls, which represents the Baroque School of Quito. Finally, the best way to finish this journey is by visiting La Ronda and some of their artisanal shops and workshops.
After these activities, the group will return to their hotel to have some time to rest, and be prepared for a delicious dinner.
