Enjoy spectacular views of Quito during a gondola ride

Day 1 Quito City and Aerial Tram

Drive north to visit "El mirador de Guápulo" (view point), from where we can admire its church and Quito's nearby valleys. We'll go south towards Quito's colonial center - one of the world's cultural heritage sites, where we can see many historical buildings; including churches, museums and monuments. From here we'll continue to El Panecillo - the small, rounded hill which dominates the old town. From its summit we'll see marvelous views of the whole city stretching out below, as well as magnificent views of the surrounding volcanoes.

We will then cross the city, driving to the base of Pinchincha Volcano. We will board the aerial tram, which will take us to the top of the volcano, overlooking Quito and the entire valley. Spend the early afternoon walking through the volcanic highlands with your guide.

This tour is approximately 5 hours.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
