Full description
Start from the iconic Ochoymedio Arthouse Cinema. Take a look at the amazing street art around La Floresta and hear about some of the artists who painted them from your bilingual guide. Taste some pretty awesome chocolate before visiting a great lookout and hanging out with some locals. This is a fascinating and not very frequented part of Quito, a hidden gem. Then, visit some interesting parks, and get to see the local culture as well as the hub of activity that is the Mariscal area. Explore a special handicraft market and meet the actual artisans who make their products. Also, discover an iconic fruit and veggie market showing you how the "real people" live, shop, and eat. Next, head to the oldest park in Quito (and in Ecuador) and gain some fascinating historical insights. See the oldest astronomical observatory in Ecuador, as well as some other interesting places. Making your way past an impressive 50-meter (164-foot) tall mural, finish the tour at La Cleta Bici Cafe located in La Floresta, only a block from the starting point. Upon arrival, the café will give you a free drink and a snack.
