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!!

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.

This tour takes you to the Equator Museum, up the Teleferico and then on a Tour of the Old City of Quito. There were only 3 of us plus the driver and guide. Our guide, Iban, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our driver was very professional. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you only have 1 day in Quito as I did. We were picked up at the hotel at 8:30AM and returned there at 5:00PM. The old city of Quito is lovely, the view from the Teleferico is beautiful and the Equator museum is very interesting.

Gabriel spoke excellent English and provided a thorough historical tour of Quito. From our visit to the Middle of the Earth to the depths of the city and beautiful churches and monuments, to the authentic lunch, our private group of 5 enjoyed this full day of getting to know Quito! Cindy B.

Diana P. was incredible! She knew Quito very well. We enjoyed our entire day with her, visiting Old City and Mitad. Exceptional view of Quito from teleferico peak. We had tasty Ecuadorean late lunch at L Cafe de Fraca in Old City. Diana went extra mile as our Quito guide. Thank you for memorable visit, Diana!

Highly recommended tour! We got picked up from our Airbnb at 7:30, and given the weather, we changed our schedule and visited Mitad del Mundo and a volcano near there in the morning. Daniel, our guide, had phenomenal English and explained the history of the town really well. After visiting the equator, we went to Teleferico and enjoyed the view of the city from the cable car. Lunch was pretty late 2:30pm, which was delicious but not included in the tour. We then visited the Historic Centre of town and visited some of the famous churches in Quito. If you have time in Quito outside of the tour, go to the Basilica del Voto Nacional, it's well worth your time and has phenomenal views of the city.

Really good experience. Bring something warm when you take the cable car. It get a bit chilly and you can feel also the change of altitude. All in all, it was a good experience. The guide, Diego, was really good, provided a lot of information on the history of the places and the culture, friendly and took good care of us. :
