Full description
This Quito city sightseeing tour is a full-day tour which includes a visit to The Panecillo Hill where you will have a panoramic view of the city. The tour will then continue to the Basilica Church, where you will make a brief stop and next visit the “San Juan Mirador” from where you will have a beautiful view of The Colonial Center of Quito. After walking through the colonial streets, you will then stop at the Independence Plaza to admire the Cathedral and the Government’s Palace. Continue with a visit to La Ronda Street, The Company Church, Santo Domingo´s Church, The Sagrario's Church and San Francisco's Church, which was built during the 17th century. After visiting the historical site, you will go to the cable car. This is one of the best ways to enjoy the city with views of beautiful valleys, snow-capped mountains and the capital Quito. From a point of more than 13,000 feet (4000 m) high, you will enjoy magnificent views.  In the afternoon, you will go to Mitad del Mundo which is located fifty minutes from the northwest of Quito. You will visit the current equatorial line and straddle the two hemispheres. In addition you'll have the chance to participate in several experiments at the Intiñan Museum. Things like watching water go down a drain in a different direction only inches away from either side of the equator, or balancing an egg on a nail, or using an ancient sun dial are some examples of what you can experiment with here.

    When we climbed the cable car it rained a lot and could not see anything. The tour ended at 15:30. The guide could have suggested some museum.

    Everything perfect from the places seen to the vehicle. The extraordinary Alfonso guide, very pleasant in his explanations and helping in everything, for our part deserves a 10. (Outstanding)
