Overview

First, we’ll go to the "Inti-Nan" In-Situ Museum (at about 2400 meters above sea level, about 7800 feet), where you can see replicas of the Ecuadorian Highlands and Amazon and, of course, to learn about the Quitu-Cara culture, their comprehension, long before the Geodesic Mission, on the stars, and, therefore, the empowerment of the term "Center of the World"; this visit takes about 45 minutes (entrance not included).

The tour was very interesting from both a historical and architectural aspect. The guide was from Urban Adventures and very informative. We also visited a chocolate and ice cream factory. There was plenty of time to take pictures and ask questions. I never felt rushed....More

I did this tour on 12 May and enjoyed it immensely. However, the description of the tour on the Viator website is misleading and should be corrected. There is no lunch and in fact the tour starts at 2pm. There is also not a visit...More
