Drive north to visit "El mirador de Guápulo" (view point), from where you can admire its church and Quito's nearby valleys. Head south towards Quito's colonial center - one of the world's cultural heritage sites, where you can see many historical buildings; including churches, museums and monuments. From here, continue to El Panecillo - the small, rounded hill which dominates the old town. From its summit you'll be able to see marvelous views of the whole city stretching out below, as well as magnificent views of the surrounding volcanoes.
Cross the city, driving to the base of Pinchincha Volcano, where you'll board the aerial tram, which will take you 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 might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
