What our students said about Quito


Rating: 5/5

A very beautiful city. There is also a lot on offer culturally. Unfortunately, there is not much going on in the Centro Historico after 6 pm. The nightlife is elsewhere. Basically, I felt safe, but at night you only take a taxi to get from A to B.


Rating: 5/5

I enjoyed getting to know Quito! After dark, things kind of shut down and it feels much less safe, but I didn’t actually have any problems.


Rating: 5/5

It's a nice place to visit and a good jumping off point to visit the many natural wonders surrounding it.


Rating: 5/5

I love Quito and I have been here 7 times because my fiancée is from Ecuador and she lives in Quito.

What school directors said about Quito

Patricia de Ribadeneira

Quito is a very safe city, very friendly and easy to know, it has all the facilities of modern life, but it also has the charm of its colonial part, that’s why it is a World Heritage city. It is also in the center of all the tourist regions that can be visited in the country.

Our teacher Adriana is great! And the school is very flexible, because we couldn't attend for 3 days due to an incident, they rescheduled us so we could make up the 3 days. And there are fresh pastries every day during break and even cakes for birthdays.
