Voice of Travelers to Quito
Family vacation to Quito
Ecuador has always been a vacation destination I wanted to visit. Finally made up my mind, packed my bags and bought my air ticket. I packed light as I wanted to shop there. I got my ticket from American Airlines and the return ticket by United Airlines who has direct flights to Quito. I really enjoyed my stay in Quito there looking forward to purchasing a ticket back. There were several museums and tourist attractions I visited. I was able to practice my Spanish with the lovely people in Ecuador. From the beautiful flowers, to the Spanish to the exquisite hotel rooms Quito is a destination I will definitely return to.
School trip to Quito
My name is Naomi, from Salford University. My school arranged a trip to Quito for all the students interested. The school was sorting our visas and our the return ticket from the total amount we paid. The air ticket was from United Airlines who had discounts on the air ticket for group students. We stayed in Quito for a couple of days. We all had so much fun in the city and enjoyed the culture change of the Quito people. On our way back our ticket was by British Airways. My plan is to get a ticket back to this great city Quito.
