Quito and the Centre of the Earth Experience - Independent
Stand at the centre of the world on this tour to Quito, home of the equatorial line. Walk the cobbled streets of the Old Town of Quito and enjoy rich examples of Baroque art and architecture in the surrounding churches, monasteries and homes. Walk through the sumptuous grandeur of La Compania church and look out over the city’s streets from El Panecillo. Finally, enjoy standing on either side of the equator at the equatorial line monument.
Independent travel, without the stress. Peregrine’s Independent Experiences are a range of short ‘mini tours’ that you can add to other Experiences or as an extension to a longer tour, to craft your perfect holiday itinerary. Independent Experiences are for 1-3 travellers, come accompanied by a local Peregrine guide and depart daily. /experiences
