When the French Geodesic Mission surveyed the equator in 1739, they declared the spot of this monument outside Qutio as the Middle of the World. With this full-day tour from Quito, enjoy a day away from the city as you visit the Middle of the World monument, as well as the real Latitude Zero 787 feet away. You’ll have time to visit the Ethnographic Museum and the Inti Nan Museum.
  • Skip the line at the Middle of the World and Inti Nan Museum
  • Upgrade your day trip with lunch at a local restaurant
  • Views of the Pululahua Volcano on the road to Quito
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at your hotel in Quito

Horrible Tour Operator
, Dec 2019
- Tour company never responds to calls or emails; 48 hours as it states. Never confirms anything. I sent 5 separate emails and called three times. Finally on the 3rd time day before tour under 24 hrs they said the guide will be at the hotel at 8am, be ready at 7:45am guide named Charlie will be there. - Today, tour day. No one showed up at 8am. I then had to call them again which they didn't answer. Called back again and finally someone answered and said the guide would be there at 8:30-8:45am. - Guide named Dorla shows up at 8:48am, said there were only three people on our reservation. She then showed me her phone which clearly shows 3 adults and one child. She said sorry. - We then walk out to the car which is a small Chevy that only hold four people and the driver. We are four people and have a driver and a guide. She still wanted to cram us in the little car which isn't possible. - She then calls her company and says another large car is on the way. It doesn't come and she says to just go with the driver, which doesn't speak English. She said she will catch up at some point. - We arrive at the first stop; the crater and had to have another guide from another company check us in because the driver didn't know what to do. - After over an hour and a half with the driver the guide finally shows up, but we were done with the crater. - We then go to the other stops with our driver and her in another car. We never learned anything during the drives due to this. The guide is hospitable but doesn't tell us anything we couldn't read ourselves during any of the stops. - Lunch was to be on our own, but the guide came with us, sat at our table- this would have been fine but she has a set order and we watched her eat before our food even came out. - We then went to the last stop where the museum has their own guide so she didn't say anything. - Finally we drove back to the Hotel with our driver which was constantly calling the guide, thinking the guide would follow us back to the hotel, this didn't happen and the driver just dropped us off. Don't do this tour- There is a reason it's all sales final. Viator isn't helping remove this company either.

This private tour was provided by a mother/daughter team, with the 17 year old daughter the guide and the mother the driver. They knew where to go for a comprehensive view of the attractions for tourists, although they would have adjusted to a specific request. The one difficulty for not getting five stars was the communication at the start. You have to be persistent in order to reach them in advance for a tour confirmation,

It was the last day of my over three weeks tour of Ecuador. The van picked me up on time. However when I tried to confirm my booking, no one answered the phone. Even the hotel personnel tried without any luck. My local contact was Jacchigua National Folklore Ballet. We visited all the places listed and both the driver and guide were very nice and helpful.The only problem was that the guide spoke English very badly, so the communication was very limited and frustrating at times. The guides within the area all spoke English, which helped a lot. I highly recommend this visit and the view of the Pululahua Crater is beautiful. I went horseback riding down in the crater the day before, so this gave me a different perspective.

An amazing and super personalized tour. Charly is engaging, flexible, knowledgeable, and fun. He worked hard to pack as much as was desired into the day. Outstanding!
