I visited this attraction recently. I was expecting a better place at the entrance and at the departure. Let's start with the area where this place is: It looks like an unsafe neighborhood, you have to cross by a pedestrian bridge that's dirty and passing by some really bad looking areas. The Quito Tour bus seems like they don't recommend... More

If you want a view of Quito and the surrounding mountains, take the gondola to the top. It will cost you a cab fare to get there but it's worth it. The Teleferico costs about $8 per person.

Absolutely a must when you are in Quito! Make sure that you go there on a clear day so you can get the most of it! Then you can see all the high peaks of Ecuador and a really nice view of Quito. If you plan to bring along your children it shouldnt be a problem, we went up with... More

There are few cars for 6 people each and a very long line. I didn't take it to the top. There is an amusement park at the starting point .

After a 45 minute wait we rode up in bright sunlight. Walked around at 13,500 feet, and got a great view of the city. Then we felt raindrops. Ran to the tram, and a deafening hailstorm began. Thunder, lightning, etc. The tram stopped running!! Took us almost two hours to get back, and there were many behind us in line

There's more than just going up the 14 stations and walking around. If you walk a little bit further up you can take a $20 horseback riding tour to ruco pichincha and the cueva del oso. It takes a total of two hours all together and the guides are super nice. The horses are alright as well.

Take the cable car on the slope of Pichincha when visibility is good, and you have an overwhelming view of the city and the Andes, from above. Sunset can be spectacular. Up there, go for a walk or take a horse-back ride on the volcano. Don´t rush!

Very fun ride up and down. Fabulous views of the city and the volcano! Take a jacket and scarf as it can be cold and the weather changes fast. If you are energetic and have a couple hours you can hike to the rim of the volcano. Recommend taking a cab to the entrance rather than the bus so you... More
