Get out early on a clear day and be treated to incredible views of the city and surrounds. Bring a jacket or sweatshirt, because the chill and wind are real at the added altitude. Took a cab from our hotel and asked the driver to wait, which he did.

An ideal outing on a clear day. We went first thing in the morning to avoid the smog blocking the view as it tends to get worse in the afternoon. Be aware you are ascending over 1000mt which does make breathing harder with the already high altitude of Quito and it is much colder at the top. If you walk... More

We went first thing in the morning, so it wasn't too crowded. This trip was a lot of fun - fantastic views. We saw a llama. It was our first day in Quito, so we hadn't yet adjusted to the altitude. We could feel it, but it didn't ruin the experience.

The view from the top of the mountain is spectacular! The gondola ride is smooth and easy. Only about ten minutes. It's a little chilly up there so bring a sweater with you.

Enjoyed thoroughly. Reasonably priced and beautiful views from the top. We went to the small church but it was locked. Still it was a lovely excursion

The one must do activity in Quito. Take the cable car up for fabulous views of Quito and the Andes. Nice shops at the top. From there hike a nice trail into the mountains for more fun. Unless you are a serious hiker plan to take it nice and easy because of altitude.

If you want one of the best views of the city and surrounding areas this is a must do!! Make sure you bring a light jacket or windbreaker due to the weather conditions at the top of the tram area.

Don't miss the Teleferico experience. They obviously overplanned the complex, whose retail/restaurant spaces are mostly vacant, but the ride up the mountain is tranquil. The views from the top are amazing! One of my favorite spots in all of Ecuador. Dress warmly -- it can be quite cold up there.

We took the cable car up and photographed the magnificent views as it was a clear cool day.We hiked on one of the few hiking trails and ran into several Llama. It was a great way to spend a morning!

Before we'd arrived in Quito, we were told to head up on the Teleferico for the best panoramic views of the city. And so we headed up on a Saturday morning in July, arriving at 9am just as it opened. No queue and straight up - $8.50 for the return so not cheap cheap but not too expensive. At the... More
