Last week, we went on a night tour of Quito, Ecuador with our Spanish school, Simon Bolivar.
I actually felt a little rushed through some of the locations, but we had a lot to see and not a lot of time to see it in, so it was probably good that the pace kept moving along.
The explanations of different locations and the history of different locations were some of my favorite parts.
I made 3 videos (in Spanish) of a few of the locations where we were and have posted them below (for those who speak Spanish and/or want to try to improve).

Quito really is a beautiful city at night. It’s a shame that it’s not considered to be safe to be out and walking everywhere, but like every big city in the world, certain areas are generally more dangerous than others.
It’s something Quito seems to be working on with private guards (as well as police) having been hired specifically to make certain areas of Quito more safe for nighttime (and anytime) visits.
