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.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
