Six senses of Ecuador – Quito experiential city tour
No, we cannot travel away from our sofa, at least not for now! How boring would be our lives without the real experience of visiting other places and immersing ourselves in other cultures!
If traveling was just taking photographs and planting the flag in one place, we could just navigate with the computer and travel around the World. However, even nowadays, when technology allows us to visit any place of the Planet through youtube videos, Instagram photos and postals, we keep on traveling physically, as it is irreplaceable!
Experience is always much better than the best explanations, and we experience trips with all our senses, not just the sight. Google Earth cannot bring us the smell of the sea, and any National Geographic’s photo cannot show us the taste of a typical dish.
The program Six Senses Tour Quito was created to accomplish the desire of every traveller: visiting a place with all the intensity. The program is adapted by our DMC to every kind of customer and every particular occasion.
The six senses tour, why six and not just five?
Because there is a special sense that is present in every special journey…
- Taste… for foodies
Enjoy this culinary experience, which connects all the senses, emphasizing taste. Try a different way to learn from ecuadorian cuisine: try their tasty “quesadilla” and their typical paila ice cream. One of the activities of the program is about tasting chocolate, a very typical Ecuadorian product, one of the best of the world. You can also cultivate your taste with the tea sommelier, a mosaic of different kind of teas and infusions, with a wide range of flavors and aromas. Another interesting activity in the program is learning how to prepare the exotic Ecuadorian coffee with Ecuadorian touch! Did you know that the high grown ecuadorian coffee is considered one of the best for its flavor?
- Smell… in search of aroma
Rudyard Kipling said that “the first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it”. This part of the program allow visitors to travel with the aroma: participants can do their own perfume, a way to express oneself and create a great souvenir for posterity.
Still training your sense of smell?, so you will enjoy the experience of cooking “sweet quesadillas” with all the cheese smell…
- Touch… for crafters
Part of the schedule of the six senses tour, involves using hands, as we used to do in the past! After visiting the churches of Quito, you will be able to take part of a workshop and learn how to design jewelry and other metal works. After that workshop, when you visit the Cathedral you will value all the work involved in that!.
Want to give presents of your journey to your family and friends? You can make toys for the kids, with your own hands, and also visit a hat factory.
- Sight… eye candy for everyone
Enjoy the landscape and the incredible sights of the city from the cable car, that is part of this marvelous multi-sensory trip. Moreover, if you like photography, you will enjoy this great opportunity to take panoramic pictures from the cable car. Other artistic activity for enjoying beautiful views is the visit of some art galleries, museums and architectural buildings of Quito, considered world heritage by UNESCO for its artistic value.
- Hearing… great music
Listen to the folk music of the Andes and delight your eyes at the same time with their special costumes of the zone. You will also listen to serenades, a regional song that is perfect for lovers who travel together.
- Love… the sixth sense!
What would be life without love? Love is sixth sense on this experiential tour. Love is the heart and pulse that Ecuadorians put into everything they do.
Sixth sense is about a new way to travel, a new way to learn about a different culture and transform your life through new special experiences.
