Private Full-Day Quito City Tour & Mitad del Mundo

We had a fabulous day on a private tour of Quito and the surrounding area, coordinated by Alex Manzaba. Alex was terrific with adjusting the schedule to fit best with the ever-changing weather in Quito. He flexed to get in as much as possible with the pending rain, and made great suggestions that were “off the beaten path.” He accommodated all of our requests (for example, we didn’t want a long lunch, we wanted to see the city) and was knowledgeable and passionate about his home town. It was an absolutely perfect day in Quito!
Five experiences in one day!

An action-packed trip that kept us moving! Toured the old part of the city, stopped for a bite at a cafe and people-watched on the Grande plaza, went on a tour of a chocolate maker, saw the angel statue, and went to the REAL equator! At the equator, we did science experiments and saw real shrunken heads. Don't forget to get your passport stamped at 0 degrees longitude and latitude!
A tour of Quito and the Mitad del Mundo well worth the price

I had poked around Quito's old town on my own for a couple of days but wanted to learn more and to visit El Panecillo. The Mitad del Mundo was not something high on my list of must-sees, but I figured why not. It ended up being a fantastic day. Raul was an excellent guide: friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. It was just the two of us in town, and we had a really nice morning seeing the sights. We then met up with a couple for the Mitad del Mundo portion of the tour in the afternoon. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. The drive there was interesting, and the equator complex was fun -- and kitschy only in the best possible way. My heart went out to the owners of all the shops and restaurants, since tourists were fairly thin on the ground. I decided to go on a tour to Cotopaxi with this same tour company, and Diego showed me and the other guest a great time there. Quito and Ecuador are amazing places to visit.
Great combo tour

We did three things around Quito - the cable car up to the cloud forest, the middle of the world and then old town. Great experience.
Great full day tour

Great way to see Quito highlights and the Equator. Our guide Oscar was fabulous. Knowledgeable. Sensitive to our needs. Not rushed
