Chocolate & Art Tour in Quito
The late OSWALDO GUAYASAMIN is Ecuador's most celebrated artist.
His fantastically eccentric house—in a chic neighborhood in Quito, perched high above the city—has been converted into an art museum. For anyone visiting Ecuador, it is a must-see.
Where do we come in? Our job is to bring the chocolate. What would a trip to Ecuador be without a proper chocolate tasting?
To'aks Chocolate & Art Experience
combines two quintessentially Ecuadorian treasures into a singular experience in the nation's capital of Quito.
- Private tour of Guayasamin's home and art gallery, guided by an art specialist from the museum.
