As Quito’s first church, construction of the Baroque-style San Francisco Church started in the 1530s, shortly after the Spaniards arrived, and lasted for over 100 years. Having sustained epic earthquakes, it’s in remarkably good shape and remains the largest, and arguably the loveliest, of the city’s original colonial structures. Franciscan fathers still live here and work on premises.

This tour is for experts at avoiding tourist traps, who revolt at insipid food, and those who couldn’t bare leaving a city not really sure about what they just saw. Quito is brimming with secrets, but a tapioca rendition worried about grappling with its complex history is going to leave out all the juicy good parts. While you will see many of the usual stops in the Historic Center, I’ll break down their significance in Quito’s 500 year struggle over its identity. As a backdrop to the story, we'll visit: - El Panecillo - San Francisco Church - La Compania ($4.00 Included) - La Plaza Grande - My Favorite Ecuadorian Chocolate Brand - Basilica de Voto Nacional What we won't do: bore you with dates and names or pull any punches. What you can expect: an intimate in depth look at why visiting Quito was a great choice. We’ll finish with a great lunch with a beautiful view where you can ask me where to find the best beer, nightlife, vegan food and anything else that comes to mind.
