Great service, fun trip with good learning experience, If the trip can add the original Midad de Mundo park visit will be perfect! Overall, had good time, Thank you for Diego and Gabriel excellent service!
It was a great trip to see as much of Quito as possible in a day. Eduardo was an excellent guide and Diego was a great driver. Lovewd the Pululahua National Park and the views from there. Mitad del Mundo was an interesting experience with a bit of info on the Amazon jungle, all about the equator and its effects with the northern and southern hemisphere, and finally the amazing views from top of the Teleferico. Great 1 day tour of Quito!!
Nice tour all in all. It's worth it just for someone else doing the driving. Not sure I could have found the Teleferico on my own and traffic in Quito is trying. Views from the top of the tram are pretty spectacular. The Mitad del Mundo part of the tour was also an interesting fun, time.
We had a private tour with Alfonso who was very nice and spoke great English. The Equator and cable car to the top of the mountain were great, very fun but took up most of the day. Didn’t get to see much of Old Town. I must not have tipped good enough the day before as he seemed to loose interest today.
My tour guide Alfonso was so knowledgeable about the city of Quito. He was patience and flexible as well. Took us to a great restaurant for lunch and really gave us a great feeling about the city of Quito. I will return for sure.
