We enjoyed this, but really, the view was not as outstanding or awe inspiring as we would have hoped. Perhaps our mistake for going in the afternoon was clouds were starting to come in. On the plus side, there was ZERO line. Maybe we were...More

Almost didn’t do the teleférico but so glad that our tour guide encouraged us to do it at the last minute even though it was raining. Wasn’t very expensive and the line moved along quickly. Once we were on top, the extra effort we made...More

Crowds and lines will build up. I think it opens around 8am. Check the weather, clouds will probably build up by noon or early afternoon. Do take hiking shoes. You can buy a bottle of water for $1 at the hut on the trail where...More

We’d had to wait a few days till visibility was good enough to go up, but the opportunity presented itself today. Followed the advice to go up early when there was less cloud and shorter queues. Got tickets quickly and minimal wait to get on....More

If you want a great view of the city of Quito, it does not get any better than using the Teleferico or cable cars. The views as spectacular especially on a sunny day. There's a little gift shop on top where you can take some...More

It is well worth the couple of hours you will spend to visit this place. It takes 18 minutes to go up and 18 to go down, and should dedicate at least another 30' to walk around and enjoy the views. Be prepared for a...More

Going up is best in the mornings for the more clear skies and great views. It lifts you up to over 4,000 meters, so some people can experience altitude sickness . There are lots of further hiking options, including to much higher altitudes. If needed...More

This fun excursion provides wonderful vistas of Quito, and the surrounding volcanoes. And, if you like to hike the walk to the summit is (literally) breathtaking. There is even horseback riding available if you are so inclined. This is a must in Quito!

The slow cable car ride up to 4100m above sea level affords you great views of the sprawling metropolis that is Quito as you climb, steeply in places up to the top. The views come and go depending on the cloud cover but it is...More

They should be operating Christmas Eve, like any business in EC. If you’re staying in a hotel in the old town, ask the concierge.
