Wat je gaat doen

****Tours will come back in July 2020 since I am in Canada at the moment. Thanks ****

We will explore the main touristic areas of colonial Quito, the beauty and architecture of some famous churches and try some street food.
Our tour will begin at the Plaza de Independencia (Independence Plaza), also known to locals as Plaza Grande. Then we will go to Palacio Arzobispal (Archbishop Palace), Palacio del Gobierno (Presidential Palace), Compañía Church and San Francisco Church. Along the way, we will try some delicious street food and visit the most famous and traditional coffee place in old town where you can try paila ice cream. Finally, we will head to 'La Ronda street'' where we will be able to try ''canelazo'' and local cuisine.
During our walk, I will talk about Quito's history, traditions and urban legends surrounding some places. I will lead you to all the nice spots also share some history of each.

PLEASE NOTE: *street food, coffee expenses, and entrance fees are not covered*

I will try my best to provide advice regarding the best places to eat and how to get around the city! I also want to be a friend for solo travelers that might need guidance. Besides, you won't have to worry about bothering people to take pictures for you. While I do not consider myself a professional photographer, I can capture the best moments of you during our walk.

Hola! Hello! 여보세요! こんにちは! ....
My name is Vanessa I am from Quito, Ecuador and studied at the University of Toronto. I have explored Canada, U.S.A and a couple of Asian countries including Japan, Korea, China, and Thailand as a solo traveler.
During my trips, I really appreciated local people who showed me their area and gave me unforgettable memories. I believe that exploring a city with a local makes things more enjoyable. So, it is my turn to share my experience and show you the hidden gems of my city. I enjoy movies, music and making new friends.
Can't wait to be your host!

Vanessa was an incredible guide. She took my wife and I to several churches we would never have visited in addition to explaining different aspects of the places we would never had known about. The chocolate visit was like wine tastings for chocolate...my wife loved this part. Then onto local foods and La Ronda a lovely area we never even heard about. Great conversation, amazing guide, hidden treasures... I would recommend Vanessa to everyone visiting Quito!!!

There’s nothing like experiencing a city with a local and Vanessa did a fantastic job of showing me around historic Quito. She was very knowledgeable about the centuries old churches around the city and she also picked out some delicious local cuisine that I definitely would have missed had I been alone. Glad I could spend the afternoon with Vanessa!
