We were fortunate to have Erika as our tour guide for all three excursions we took in Quito. She is fun and super knowledgeable. I was impressed with how she had the ability to switch between English and Spanish so effortlessly.
We wish she could be our tour guide for the rest of our time in Ecuador!!!
Got to see everything I wanted to see!

Diana was a great tour guide! She was very friendly and knowledgeable about Mitad del Mundo and the history of Quito. We went to the park in Mitad del Mundo and got to experience everything there. We tried to go to Puluahua but it got really foggy and just went into the museum there instead. On the way back we stopped in Pomasqui to eat some really good fritadas! I think this is a great way to tour Mitad del Mundo quickly if you don't have a lot of time. Also, Diana if you're reading this, I'm pretty sure I figured out why holding the jade kept you from losing your balance :)

Unfortunately the weather was very cloudy at Pululahua viewpoint but rest of the tour was great. Daniel our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and Nixon our driver was great
Excellent trip the middle of the world !

This was an excellent half day trip. Andrea our tour guide was very informative all throughout the trip and ensured that everyone mingled and had a good time.
Started with visit to Pululahua volcano where the guide gave a short talk on the area and we had time to take some photos and have an ice cream.
Then on to Mitad del Mundo (well back as we passed it to get to Pululahua). We had plenty of time here to explore the museum, get the obligatory equator line photos, and wander round the different museums and shops, oh and visit the lamas of course !
Andrea also have a wee walking tour where we balanced an egg on a nail (well those of us that could do it did!), and then went to the chocolate museums for a history of chocolate and a tasking (lovely 70% chocolate!).
Trip back to Quito was kept interesting with a wee quiz with chocolate prizes.
A great day out - especially for $30 !
Real close to the Equator

For starters, Mitad del Mundo is not precisely on the equator; the true equator is about 200 feet away. The science museum was so-so at best, with many of the exhibits not in working order. The famous demonstration of water going clockwise down the drain on one side of the equator and counter-clockwise on the other side was rigged with faucets aimed to create the desired swirl direction. The knock-off Disney-esque park in which this museum sits, however, is pretty, and we had fun (and a nice meal in a second-floor restaurant overlooking the line that, again, is not the equator. This whole trip starts confusedly as half of a Quito City Tour, and requires a change of bus that is not made clear to all travelers. We left our hotel at 10 a.m. to catch this tour and we were not back at our hotel until 6 p.m. -- this is for a purported half-day tour, so be aware of the time commitment when you book this tour. Once you get on the correct bus, the tour heads north to the Pululahua Crater for about 20 minutes. This is pretty cool, to see a community of 200 people living in an active volcano crater. There are various things one can do at Mitad del Mundo, including the aforementioned science museum (don't bother standing in line if you are willing to take the stairs; the line is only for people who want to take the elevator to an observation deck on the top floor of the tower), various restaurants, many shops, singers and dancers in the town square, a playground, llamas, and a place to try to balance an egg on the head of nail (two of our party of four succeeded; the others didn't try). One last stop before returning to Quito is a distillery where one can sample misca made from the agave plant (following a brief but interesting tour and discussion of agave and its uses). The owner of the distillery, Diego, is so passionate about the agave and its products; just listening to him was both educational and entertaining -- with the extra bonus of a shot of misca at the end!
