Quito is where almost all tours are organized throughout Ecuador, and the streets of the Mariscal Sucre neighborhood are lined with every type of tour operator imaginable.
Some of the most popular tours booked in Quito are: Galapagos last minute tours, trips to lodges in the Amazon region or cloudforests of Mindo, day trips to the Otavalo market, Papallacta hot springs, and Cotopaxi National Park.
Adventure activities like mountain biking, white water rafting, mountain climbing, trekking and birdwatching are also popular and best booked in Quito.
It's recommended to reserve Galapagos tours well in advance before you arrive, especially in the high season of summer and around Christmas and New Years when boats book up months or even years in advance.
Quito city tours are offered by offered by a handful of travel agencies and tend to focus on Quito's Historical City Center. The history of Quito is fascinating, so contracting a city tour guide who knows the history instead of just wandering around the Old Town is highly recommendable.
