The ride up the tram offers breathtaking vistas of the valley below, and by the time you reach the top it is quite cold and windy (we were there in the late spring). There are various vista points where you can admire the valley below...More

The location felt a little abandoned, so our group was worried we were in the wrong spot, but once we made it up the hill to the ticket counter, all was smooth. This is a fairly affordable attraction, we had a very modest wait, and...More

Definitely need to do this if you are in Quito. When you get to 4100 meters it feels like the top of the world. Stunning view of the city and surroundings.

Do it in the morning as you have a better chance for good weather. The views of the city are great! Plus you can hike or bike when up there

My husband and I headed up Telefrico in the morning. I recommend doing the same as the clouds and rain start rolling in as it gets later and the lines get longer. We arrived a little after 9 am and hiked for almost 2 hours...More

It took me only 45 minutes to reach the top of the Teleferico from my hotel in Quito. A short taxi drive that cost me 3 dollars and then a magical ride to the top. Did a one hour hike before returning to the city....More

Cab from Old Town should cost no more than $5 USD and take about 10-15 mins depending on traffic. Return trip on cable car is $8.50 USD (keep your ticket as you'll need it to come back down). Ascent is gradual enough that you can...More

This is a nice activity to do while you are in Quito, Cruz de Loma offers a good viewpoint of the city. If it is clear you could enjoy Volcano´s Avenue, in the oppossite mountain. Taking a trekking is another thing you can do, Rucu...More
