Departure Time

9:00 AM
Your tour begins with pickup from your Quito hotel in time for a 9am departure. Traveling by private vehicle, head straight to one of the city’s most prominent landmarks, Panecillo hill. The 655-foot (200-meter) high hill is capped by a famous statue of the Virgin Mary, but the real highlight is the view, which spans the entire city.

Descend into the Old Town and enjoy a walking tour of Quito’s UNESCO-listed monuments, as your guide tells you more about the city’s colonial history. Along the way, stroll through the bustling Plaza de la Independencia, visit the magnificent San Fransisco Monastery, and peek inside the grand Gothic Basílica del Voto Nacional.

Next, set out on the around 45-minute drive to the Mitad del Mundo – the ‘Middle of the World’ – to see the famous Equator line. While you’re there, visit the Intiñan Museum, where you can pose for photos on the ‘equator line’, learn more about Ecuador’s indigenous tribes, and watch a demonstration of the Coriolis Effect.

Return to Quito around 2pm, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
