I am afraid of heights so I was really nervous about taking the teleferico to the top... but I was pleasantly surprised because it really wasn't scary at all. The cable car actually follows a grassy ridge line up to the top, so it wasn't like the city was way down underneath us. The view from up top were fantastic.... More

The telesferico is not for olderly people, babies or people who can be affected by the altitude. It is located at a top of a mountain next to an amusement park. At the top the view is amazing. I recomend a sweater is because it is very windy and cold. Even tho it gets cold sunblock or some type of... More

We spent an hour at the top of the Teleferico Quito. It was a great experience. We arrived first thing in the morning (10am) so we avoided any lineup to ride up the gondola. The view from the top was amazing - at 15,000 we could see the entire valley of Quito. It was an experience - the gondola is... More

A must-do in Quito. The view from the top provides a necessary perspective on the densely-populated city below. Plus, you know, it's fun.

So glad we decided to view the amazing city of Quito from such a height. Very reasonable cost to go up. Very high up the mountainside but although suffering mild altitude effects, well worth it. Coffee at the top while you survey the sights. Climbing further up is a challenge but well worth thr effort. Take your time and stop... More

Taking a ride up the cable car to one of the highest points in Quito, you get to see a beautiful view of the city from different angles. It's probably best to go on a clear day and I would recommend bringing a jacket because it can get nippy. Once you reach the top, you have the option of exploring... More

I think this is probably one of the highest cable cars in the world. On the top you have amazing views from Quito and surrounds, and you can also ride horses and bicycles. There is also a complex with stores and cafeterias. Really a good option in Quito.

We were very lucky. The weather was good so views and walking was great. It was Independance day but we got there 9ish so only a small wait. When we came down around 1pm the queues were horrendous. It purports to be the highest teleferic in the world so take it very slow if you have just arrived in Quito... More

I had a nice time on the Teleferico... The ride up was about 15 - 20 minutes and the view was spectacular. It's not for people scared of heights because you are about 100 feet off the ground at times. The view from the top is great but prepare for very cool temps (15 degrees to 20 degrees colder than...

Very cool place! It's a little expensive for foreigners (8,50$) but the view is worth it! Put some warm clothes on and go have the best view over Quito! I also enjoyed the horseback riding, although it's another 10$.
