As proposed in a number of places, we skipped the official equator memorial and just visited this museum, which apparently is the one on the actual equator (as opposed to the main monument, which is 200 meters off thanks to some French scientists' false calculations)....More
This is a really well designed, interactive, informative, interesting and fun equator experience. In all honesty we just wanted to go and say we had stood on the equator. So the museum, experiments, history, guide, photo opportunities made this a really fun trip. It's a...More

Hiring a guide is a great idea if you have only one day in Quito. Our guide took us to the Centro Historico to see the beautiful churches and colonial architecture, as well as the Intinan Museum. The museum will take 1-2 hours, depending how long you linger in the exhibits. I don't know about public transit to that area of Quito. You should also consider a visit to the Teleferico while in Quito for an impressive view of the city with towering volcanoes in the background.
