“SPECTACULAR!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

There is no way to take a photograph that could capture the spectacular view from the top. Amazing to look DOWN at airplanes taking off from the airport.

Go early before the afternoon clouds roll in. Take a jacket - it's cool up there. I don't think there are any bathrooms at the top. Food and drinks at the top are really expensive.

“Scary and exciting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

4100meters over sea level. You get a MAGNIFICENT view of the City of Quito. Scary though while going up. If you are scared of heights and still want to try, I'd recommend you sitting with your back towards the view.

“Amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you want to be amazed you need to go to the Teleferico. The view of the volcanoes and the city is amazing and you experience a very high altitude which is cool!! Don't expect great food or anything else up there!

“Teleferico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great thing to do to get a good view of the city of Quito and good photography opportunities. The view is spectacular and you can do some hiking if you want to while you are up too. We really enjoyed the view.

“Worth the effort...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

$6 taxi from Grande Plaza Old Town and same back to New Town..try and grab a taxi dropping someone off at the top as there may be a queue further down the hill at the exit. Can cloud over fairly quickly but got reasonably lucky the day I went. $8.50 return trip. Must have been a good day all round as the 4 person car made a very smooth non stop trip up and back. No different to any other cable car around the world. Cafes at the top but didn't try them. Plenty of people around although I did not walk any of the trails. The view is the view but you won't get better in Quito. Early AM or late morning would be best.
