Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Quito is a big enough city that it’s tough to get a feel for all of it. This bus tour is perfect to do just that! It’s a 2.5 ride around the city with a well-timed stop at the Angel statue with phenomenal city views.

The tour guide was informative and helpful. I ended up getting a glass of sparkling wine at Pimms restaurant even atop the hill on our 30 min stop, and on a sunny day with amazing views, it was a magical moment.

Thank you, Quito Bus Tour!

At a senior rate of $7.50, it can’t be beat. It’s tiring walking around Quito between the altitude and the hills, and this convenient bus transports you between the major attractions in the city. You have an hour at each stop before another bus comes along. You can stay at each stop as long as you want, or, do like we did, and walk to the next stop. 13 stops in all with the buses running until 4:00 PM. Fun ride upstairs looking at the city, though do beware of tree branches. Great way around Quito.

My wife and I were fortunate to be able to take a private tour while in Quito during COVID lockdown. Our itinerary included The Museo de Sitio Intinan, the Casa de Agave distillery and museum, lunch at Panorama, and a drive through the Quito Historico Centro and up to the Mirador de Panecillo. Our tour guide, Diana, was exceptional. She had a great command of the English language, was very personable, and very knowledgeable about every place we visited throughout the day. She went above and beyond to make the day a very personal and special one for us, including taking pictures of us and for us throughout the day. Our driver, Carlos, was also wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Quito!

A group of 8 of us took this tour. The bus was nice enough, but it came to every stop every hour or so, with absolutely no schedule, so hopping on and off was not exactly easy when you knew you'd be stuck at every location for at least an hour. We also were on the top and could not hear any word the announcers were saying, so missed all the history and facts. The audio quality was just scratchy and poor. So not much point in taking a tour if you can't hear what's being said about what you are seeing. Might as well get off, walk, and read a tour book!

Also, be careful! Electric/phone wires hanging within a foot of the bus so don't stand up! We also passed under a bridge with no warning (at least that we could hear) and the clearance was about 6 inches above the roof of the bus. Unsafe!

Our family loves city tours that delve into location and culture, so were very disappointed in this/.

Quito Tour Bus was a pleasant surprise, as this was a quick, last minute visit to Quito. It was recommended by my Hotel Concierge and I am not disappointed. The Tour personalities were engaging and professional and more importantly knowledgeable about Quito.
Highly Recommend!!

First let me say I have been on many Hop on Hop off bus tours around the world. What makes them so nice, is that very feature of getting off at any stop to see a particular site, and knowing another bus will come by and you can get back on and continue the tour. On the Quito tour, if you get off the bus, you will have to wait 1 ½ hours until the next bus! What? So if you get off at 2 sights, you have a 3 hour wait! In other cities a bus comes by every 15-20 minutes. Essentially, this is a 3 hour bus tour, period. They should make it more clear about wait times.

The tour itself was os-so. I have been on much better ones. I was disappointed, as were my two traveling companions.

A great way to see many parts of Quito! We very much enjoyed the journey. Each stop has an option of 1.5 hours to visit until the next bus. The only downside if that you must start at las Carolinas and are not able to begin later

We've used Hop On Hop Off busses in many cities. This was a bargain well worth the money. As senior citizens were had a price reduction from $60 to $40. It's a three hour tour considering the traffic and length of Quito. The narration was live with a knowledgeable guide who clearly enunciated in Spanish and English. (Erika & Mauro are great). Definitely recommend early in your stay in Quito.

I would recommend anybody to do this tour on your first day, as this will give you the information to plan the rest of your sightseeing. Unfortunately we did this trip on our last day and found things that we'd like to have seen. For instance, there was a really good market just around the corner from our hotel (Hilton) and we had no idea it was even there.

I was glad that we found the Big Red Bus in Quito, Ecuador because we got to see more of the city. I did have a mishap with an object that fell on my head which was tossed by a chid from a balcony, but the other passengers and guide on the bus were very helpful and concerned to help me. We were at the end of the trip so the guide was kind enough to drive me and my husband to our hotel afterwards.
