Don't miss the visit to the Teleferico! The views from Quito at 3,000 meters plus is unreal. We went on a Sunday and it was crowded, but worth it. We recommend going early, since by around 3:00pm it starts getting cloudy in that area (it's above 3,000+ meters) and the clouds start covering the tips of the mountains --beautiful scenery--there...

A must for any first time visitor to Quito. Great views over the city and surrounding volcanic peaks. Plenty of adventurous actvities (horseback riding, moutain biking or hiking up/down the mountain). Grab a coca leaf tea if you're feeling faint and definitely bring a sweater or warm jacket along; it gets cold up top. Also highly recommend going in the... More

First off, for better or worse, I hiked up there, to the cable car station, from Plaza Foch, in 2 hours, and was exhausted. Thankfully, I was able to buy a few waters, a coffee and doughnut, and relax some before going farther. It seemed that more people went there for the Vulcan Amusement Park than for the TeleferiQo (distance... More

We got to the Teleferico just after it opened (around 9:10am). It was a cloudy start to the day but we decided we would go up regardless and hope it would clear. The ride up is cool and allows for great views of Quito. Lucky for us the cloud did often clear and so we decided to hike up to... More

The Teleferico Quito will take you to the top of one of their many volcano and once there you can enjoy of the spectacular view of Quito, Old Quito and its parks. It also gives the opportunity to explore the area by walking or biking, and the best of everything for a GREAT PRICE. You will definitely enjoy it.

Go during the sunset! Beautiful pictures! Initially we were supposed to go earlier during the day, but I am so glad we weren't able to. When the sun is setting it is an unforgettable scene.

I took a taxi ($5) to the teleferico station on a Monday at about 1:30 pm. The day was partly cloudy, but despite the good weather there were only two people in line ahead of me. I spent an hour at the top hiking a loop trail. Great views. Supposedly one can rent horses at the top but I did... More

We are from Albuquerque where we have the "Tramway" up the Sandía mountains. This provided a ride up the mountain with good views of the Avenue of Volcanoes and the city below. After listening living in Medellín, Colombia we became in tune with the MetroCable, where it was also used as a main transportation means for the comunas, perhaps I... More

What an amazing view of the city!! But be careful with the altitude! Drink some coca tea when you get on top. It goes to Pichincha volcano and the view is spectacular!
