Our guide, Gabriel, was wonderful. He was personable, informative, and adapted to our requests. We loved visiting the volcano, Mitad del Mundo, and the real equator. A marvelous 1/2 day!

Our tour guide was early and had good English. The private tour is worth paying the extra for. The official tour at Mitad del Mundo was very poor - hurried and disinterested, but our Viator driver took us around again and gave us extra time. He knew as much as the official guide and was more interesting.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

I had such a great day on this tour.
The driver who's name I've embarrassingly forgotten was flexible and allowed us to spend more time at the locations that interested us the most. He was friendly and welcoming. The tour at the Intiñan Museum was in-depth and so much more interesting than just a visit to 'a line'. I'd recommend this tour to anyone heading to Quito!

A lovely afternoon, perfect if you have time before a late night flight. Guide was excellent, on time, a unique experience

We booked the group tour but were the only ones on the trip, so it ended up being a private tour! We were picked up from our hotel on time and our guide was great. We stopped at the Mitad del Mundo, both the government monument and the Intiñan Museum, as well as the Pululahua Geobotanical Reserve. We also stopped at a small ice cream shop for a treat--it was a great way to spend half the day!

Dante, our guide was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and professional. Could not have been better. The tour was awesome. The museum is really extraordinary. Our museum guide moved us through one after another experience to show the uniqueness of being at the center point of the equator. Altogether an unforgettable excursion.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

This was a great experience! Spending time and learning about the equator and history of the Ecuador with the experienced tour guides at the equator was fascinating. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable about Quito and the area - we had so many questions for him and he was more than happy to educate us. The tour includes a small hike in a beautiful crater that is inhabited by farmers. So pretty. Not in any tour guides so it was a special find!

This was a great introduction to Quito and area on our first day in the city, thanks largely to our knowledgeable and affable guide, Dante. He answered every question we had honestly and enthusiastically. The short tour afforded us the flexibility to do things that were important and of interest to us. Highly recommended to get a good overview and the unique experience of visiting the equator!
