On and off buses are always a good way to get an overview of a new city, so we try to do that the first day we're in town. We did have a guide and the descriptions were in English as well as Spanish, so we were pleased with that detail. Quito is quite large and spread out, and we... More

We took this tour ($15/p/p) the 1st day in Quito and would highly recommend it to get your bearings and see most of the sites in a day. We boarded at the stop near the Hilton Colon. The tour takes you through the old town to the El Panecillo Sculpture on the hill and around the various churches and markets.... More

You have flexible options for sightseeing, guides provide enough information about the city and it's chance to meet interesting people. For all of you that come from colder countries please, don't forget your sun glasses, hat, SKIN PROTECTOR and bottle of water, because you are 3000 meters closer... More

Great way to find your bearings in any city. Decide which areas are worth revisiting and lots of photo opportunities en route. This bus tour stops at El Panecillo for half an hour where there is a market and toilets.

It was just ok. The recording and the live voice was in Spanish only, so I missed a lot of what was being said. I was able to get the layout of the city very well by taking this tour, since I will be living here that was important for me. The tour goes past many beautiful churches and also... More

The tour takes you through old and new parts of Quito, with a Half-hour stop at the very top of the mountain where the city's angel resides. Breath-taking views and great photo ops.

This is a splurge we allow ourselves whenever staying in a large urban area with a relatively short window to explore. This comfortable and easy-to-use service allowed us to see absolutely everything on our list in Quito and to make the most of a short stay.

Please don't take this tour. The city is beautiful but the traffic and the closed street doesn't help at all.You better walk and use taxis. Also they are all the time in a hurry. So you don't enjoy anything. In El Panecillo the tour guide only lets us stay for 5minutes. The English from the guides is terrible too. So... More
