5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This tour included a three part exploration of Quito highlights. Our guide, Daniel, was very personable and knowledgable regarding all aspects of Quito's history, geography, economy, and politics. His English was outstanding. Our first stop was Teleferico where we rode the cable car to exquisite views of the city. Daniel explained the vegetation at different altitudes highlighting the paper tree at the summit. We had our pictures taken with a llama dressed in native ponchos and hats. The second stop was Mitad del Mundo, the equator. This was a fascinating tour including demonstrations of the magnetic forces of north and south meeting at the center of the earth. Daniel was able to balance an egg on the head of a nail at latitude 00. There was a lovely gift shop where we purchased beautiful alpaca sweaters at bargain prices. We then drove to the Old City of Quito where we had a delicious lunch at an upscale restaurant. This was followed by a walking tour of the Old City. This tour featured the architecture and designs of Quito's grandest cathedrals. We started at the Grand Plaza and were greeted by those campaigning and advocating for political candidates outside the residence of the President. Daniel reviewed the fascinating history of the design of Iglesia de la Compañia de Jesús. The magnificence of the beauty, history, and interior of gold was staggering. This tour made for a very informative and enjoyable way to experience the highlights of the lovely city of Quito.

Our tour guide Daniel was delightful and so knowledgeable. The views from the top of the Teleferico were stunning and the trip to the middle of the world was well worth the drive. Finally, the tour of old town Quito including the beautiful Compania de Jesus church topped off this perfect day.

This tour was excellent. Fantastic tour guide. Loved the whole day tour seeing so much. I can highly recommend it. However as mentioned to the tour guide - the only way to book this tour was paying for 2 people as the website refused to take a single persons booking. So as I wanted to do the tour with all the places mentioned I paid double. I trust Viator takes notice of this.

The trip was organized. The guide was very informative. We saw the main highlights, which took about 8-9 hours. It's a must if you have a day to explore Quito.
