We visited during a weekend and there were a lot of people walking around. The colonial buildings are in good condition and of interest.

Ecuador on display...wonderfully. Here you can see the Ecuadorian people going about their daily lives as they have been for generations. Churches, wonderful architecture, Plazas filled with Ecuadorians from all walks of life.

Did old town as part of tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Having a guided tour is recommended to get information on the history.

Old Town has many historical and beautiful buildings. There are also several stores and restaurants to visit. It's a great place to sit and people watch.

Was a good tour. They take you to a lot of the main attractions. It's a good starting point for knowing where you want to go and spend more time later. Some of the informative bits are a bit long. Definitely recommend at the start of your Quito trip. Added note community hostel is great. I wasn't staying there, but they treated me like family.
