Quito city tour with us is the best experience! Our goal is to show travelers all over the world the true Quito with its unique nature, culture, hospitality of the city's inhabitants, offering individual high-level services, taking into account and taking care of every detail of the tour to fully satisfy our most demanding customers.

The cable car has become one of the main attractions of Quito since it opened its doors in 2005. The cable car is an excellent option to have a panoramic view of the Pichincha Volcano and the landscape of Quito. It starts at 2,950 meters above sea level and reaches 4,050 meters above sea level: the crest of Cruz Loma, next to the Pichincha volcano. It has 18 cars, which will go up the mountain range for 10 minutes. At 4050 meters, you will be greeted by a large scenic landscape. The páramo of the Pichincha volcano, at the top of Cruz Loma, offers a spectacular view of the entire city of Quito.

Quito city tour is perfect for seeing fascinating panoramas, churches, domes and roofs that have an important historical value. You will admire and learn about colonial art, architecture, culture, legends, and traditions. Quito, the capital of Ecuador, was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city and stands at an altitude of 9.350 feet. Despite the 1917 earthquake, the city has the best-preserved, least altered historic Center in Latin America. The architecture and rich interiors, are pure examples of Quito School of sculpture, which is a fusion of Spanish, Italian, Moorish, Flemish and indigenous art. After four incredible hours exploring the Old Town, you'll understand why Quito was the world's first city named to UNESCO's Cultural Heritage list.

Our first stop is Basilica church. You'll see a true example of neo gothic architecture style.

Fantastic tour by guide Fabian and driver Cesar! They worked at our pace and made the experience very enjoyable. We (4 of us) had traveled to Quito before starting a Galapagos excursion. Having arrived a few days early, we booked this private tour to see the city on our own and not with a group. Covid protocols were followed. Safety was never in question. The van was comfortable and well air conditioned. Cesar did a great job driving on some very challenging roadways. Fabian is knowledgeable, approachable, friendly and a pleasure to tour with. Food and drinks were not provided. Entrance fees were included.
Highly recommend.

Raul was our guide through the beautiful and historic city of Quito. He was very prompt on his arrival to pick us up at our hotel in the historic district. He was very informative and knowledgeable on the many stops on our tour. Never rushed and very relaxed, which was very good for a couple of guys from sea level trying to hike around at the top of Teleferico !! I highly recommend this tour and hope you enjoy your time in Quito as much as we did
О поездке в Эквадор.

Здравствуйте!Я была в Эквадоре впервые(+Галапагосы).Все очень понравилось: и историческо- архитектурная, и географическо-зоологическая составляющие этой прекрасной страны. Хочется отметить хорошую, слаженную работу коллектива турагенства и, особенно, переводчика Антона Теплого.Вместе со мной были туристы из Санкт-Петербурга, путешествовали в одной машине. Полагаю, что они сами напишут отзыв, но в наших разговорах и обмене информации им также понравилась работа нашего переводчика. Хочется отметить профессионализм нашего водителя (имя не помню, увы). С удовольствием буду рекомендовать поездку в Вашу страгу.С уважением-С.А.Цыганова
