Overview
Get a sense for the architecture, history and culture of Quito during this 9-hour trip visiting the city’s top sights. Start with an exploration of the historic city center of this Ecuadorian capital, visiting its main Basilica, Independence Plaza and many more colonial-era sites. Then take a trip aboard the Teleférico to a peak more than 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) above the city for sublime views, finishing your day at ‘Mitad del Mundo,’ a monument marking where the earth’s equator splits the world into north and south. This Quito city trip includes entrance fees at select attractions, a guide and round-trip hotel transport.
What to Expect
This city tour and Teleférico is a full day tour which includes the Basilica Church, where you will make a brief stop to have a beautiful view of The Colonial Center of Quito. After walking through the colonial streets, you will then stop at the Independence Plaza to admire the Cathedral and the Government’s Palace.
Then you will visit La Ronda Street, The Company Church, Santo Domingo´s Church, The Sagrario´s Church and San Francisco´s Church, which was built during the 17th century.

After visiting the historical site, you will go to the Teleférico. This is one of the best ways to enjoy the city with views of beautiful valleys, snow-capped mountains and the capital Quito. From a point of more than 13,000 feet (4000 m) high, you will enjoy magnificent views.

In the afternoon, you'll will go to Mitad del Mundo which is located fifty minutes from the northwest of Quito (Ecuador). You will visit the current equatorial line and straddle the two hemispheres. In addition you’ll have the chance to participate in several experiments at the Intiñan Museum. Things like watching water go down a drain in a different direction only inches away from either side of the equator, or balancing an egg on a nail, or using an ancient sun dial are some examples of what you can experiment here.

Maximized the day in Quito

We had only 1 day in Quito and we took this tour- HIGHLY recommend- we had Diego as a tour guide and he was very knowledgeable, very personable. Good mix of sight seeing in foot and via car. Lunch was delicious!

A great day out with lots of variety

We had a fantastic day with Anna Maria and Bolivar. They went out of their way to make the day work out spectacularly. The morning weather was very clear and so they took us to the Teleferico first thing for the views rather than in...More

We were picked up at our hotel, but it was within the city. There might be an extra charge for pick up by the airport. I would ask the company.
