Full Day Quito City Tour Including Teleférico and Mitad del Mundo

108 reviews
Maximize your stay in Quito during this private excursion to some of the city’s top sights, including the Mitad del Mundo, the historic city center, and Teleférico (cable car) for a comprehensive introduction to the city. Forget time-consuming public transit, instead traveling from point to point with ease in a private vehicle and experience more than you could alone in just one day.

That is the best experience, as all churches and its towers are lighted, a beautiful scene, also there is few people on the streets so you can make wonderful photos

We met-up with good friends in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. This beautiful colonial city is filled with wonderful architecture, churches, plazas, shops, restaurants and it is the greatest historic center in South America. Allow yourself a day or two to accommodate to the high altitude.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site - one of the first - this is the best preserved - and oldest, extant colonial city remaining in South and Central America. It is a living history - once a symbol of European hegemony over indigenous people, it now is truly Ecuadorian - mixing the colonial style with art, music, life that is distinctly modern, but unique. The architecture is incredible, and many neat little shops. Can wander around for a day or two - be sure to visit the Presidential Plaza - a central focal point of life in Quito, where locals spontaneously show up with instruments, or even microphones to sing - the life here is incredible, it is beautiful at night and most parts are well policed and safe. Avoid the edges of Old Town unless you are used to traveling in developing countries and know how to keep an eye out for potential pickpockets. Stay in the core, and you'll find it a wonderful place that may make you want to never leave - you will never find this in the US.
