Tour Description


Art is normally understood as any activity or product carried out with an aesthetic and communicative purpose. This may be done by expressing ideas, emotions and, in general, a vision of the world, through various resources, such as plastics, linguistics, sound and body. Do you think this is art?

On this tour, we will discover the art, per se, which was detected in this part of the world. Art here is also something that is characterised our ancestral people … follow their journey with us!

The city of Quito was the world’s first city to be declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1978. Come and find out why.

I would rate this trip as one of the most outstanding ones we have ever made. And thanks God we could still make it, before Corona took over. What really made the difference in Nicky Lodge was our Guide Pedro -what a special person with so much knowledge and charm, his background, originally from the region, simply overwhelmed us. The lodge was O.K, the cook and the staff so attentive, we really did feel at home. Some of the guides there simply were, as to our opinion, already too touristic. I don't need a personal book to be personally recommendated, do I? The trip was very well organized, we would do it again. I Hope all of you are well, we are with you, Antje and Sylvia
The bus itself was comfortable and clean. Love the second level seating, the view was great from there. The driver and the guide were great, knowledgeable, and friendly. I learned a lot about Ecuador in a fun way through this bus tour. Once at the equator, we went our own ways and met up in a couple hours, which was nice to venture out on our own for a little. My favorite part was the Agave house tour. Again, super educational and getting to taste the Miske and other parts of the agave plant was amazing. 110% would reccomend. Worth the $ and worth the time!
We had a wonderful time with lovely people as guide, driver muy careful and agency muy agréable y useful through a 30 day trip across le country. We recommend surely Quito bike tours for a trip in Ecuador with people local outside of touristic area.
