Morning Fun!
Greg_H, Jul 2022
Was a very enjoyable tour. Educational and fun. our tour guide allowed us to customize our tour which made it even more enjoyable.
Not enough value for the money :(
Menka_S, Feb 2022
It's a place of geological importance but doesn't not warrant 3 hours of exploration or $50 that I was charged for it!

Enjoyable trip! David was a friendly and informative guide, and shared great stories with us. Especially loved the Agavi museum, not to be missed.
Very fun and relaxing trip
Keith_J, Dec 2020
Bus was on time and tour guide was extremely friendly, especially towards a solo traveler. Viator charged $60 but if you book directly at Quito Tour bus it’s on $20.

Great Experience

My tour guide Andrea was amazing! Enthusiastic and informative. I learned about the city and the trip to the Middle of the World is a must see! They even stamp your passport! I felt like we had too much free time there and would have rather left about 30-45 minutes earlier especially with all the traffic!
Boring tourist trap
Terrence_T, Jun 2018
Sorry to say, but this is just a tourist trap where you are stranded for over 2 hours looking at their shops. Use your time in Ecuador better, skip this tour.

Mitad del Mundo is really a must-see! Our guide was enthusiastic and the trip was a lot of fun and a great introduction to Ecuador. : Visiting the crater prior to Mitad del Mundo was also a nice addition to the tour. Definitely recommend!!

This tour took us to the Mitad del Mundo and allowed us to spend 2-3 hours by ourselves in that place. It's good value for your money.

This tour was amazing!! Before touring the Middle of the Earth we had a chance to see the beautiful and massive Crater. My 11 yr old son was so impressed he said he would live there! The tour guide was very knowledgeable when visiting the Mitad del Mundo he made sure we understood all aspects of the tour, he asked questions and made it very interesting. The lunch was delicious! There was a travelling band at the restaurant and we bought their CD. I highly recommend this tour!

Ann S, Aug 2017
Totally worth it! Not only was our guide Alex fantastic, but the private transportation in a very nice bus made the trip to/from enjoyable. Also made friends with other solo travelers in the really nice-sized diverse group. Alex provided lots of interesting information the entire way and at each stop. The first stop is at Pululahua volcano - what an incredible view! We then headed to La Ciudad Mitad del Mundo where you get the first hour free for lunch not included, but good and affordable, then an hour guided tour, and an hour to explore all the other museums/areas entrances included. I know people who have worked there way to the Ciudad Mitad Mundo on their own using public transport and they say it was ok, but took a really long time and they didn't get any of the benefits of having a guide, so if you can afford the tour, I'd say book! :
