Look at the sky. If it is clear, go. Well worth it. The ride itself is fun. You're at about 14,000' elevation. If you're not used to that, don't spend over an hour up there. A taxi can take you up there for $3-5. Pack...More

This is a great trip to get an astonishing view of the city (if not cloudy) and enjoy the cold breeze of the mountains. If you are up to some adventure, I encourage you to take a horse ride for 30 mins - 1 hour...More

8,90 for an adult to go up 10 minutes is a bit much if you ask me. However, everybody does it anyway. Only go their when the sky is clear

Amazing views of the city. Go on a clear day. Take a jacket as it's blustery at the top. Would recommend the climb up pichincha volcanoe too

The trip up the gondola (as I call it) was fascinating. Although it was a little chilly a light jacket sufficed on this day. The panoramic views of Quito, a city of 3.5 million people were amazing. There was plenty of parking and plenty of...More

Riding the cable car ride to the top and walking on a trail in the Pichincha Volcano area were highlights of our visit to Quito. The rides up and down were smooth and gave us great vistas of Quito. For one who rides cable cars...More

You could see almost all of Quito from the top. Ride took approximately 18 minutes from the base of the mountain to the top. Nearly 4000 meters total I believe. The ride can be nauseating for small children, so prepare for that. But overall it...More

They should be operating Christmas Eve, like any business in EC. If you’re staying in a hotel in the old town, ask the concierge.
