    We are going to the Galapagos and Ecuador for two weeks in July. If anyone has a recommendation for a good company to provide a day tour of Quito, it would be greatly appreciated. Any other recommendations for food,etc are also very welcome
    thanks,
    Marc

    Metropolitan Touring is the biggest and most dependable operator in Ecuador, and their Quito operation is first class. The city's police force actually provides regular and excellent tours of the Old Town right from an office on the Plaza Grande, which is sorta ground zero for the Old Town.

    My favorite restaurants include Zazu, Coquus, Alma, and a short taxi ride away Hacienda Rumiloma

    couple more tips:
    In the Old Town, San Francisco and Compania de Jesus churches are spectacular. Museo Casa del Alabado very good.

    If you are interested in modern art, the Guayasimin exhibits (his old home and new capilla, both museums really) are worthwhile and near each other

    Skip Mitad del Mundo
