We were in Quito in October 2017 and our first day in the city started with the Teleferico. The views are remarkable when the weather is clear. We arrived right when they opened and did not wait in any lines. It was much chillier at...More

If it's a clear morning in Quito head for the Teleferico, but remember to bring a jacket, it's chilly up there. Even though I'm not that fond of cable cars, the 15 minute ride up is rewarded with fantastic views of the city and the...More

We did the Teleferico as part of our Quito city tour. I enjoyed the cable car ride up to the top. There were excellent views of Quito and the surrounding volcanoes.

The views from the top of the teleferico are unreal! Make sure you head up early in the morning to avoid the afternoon cloud coverage and/or rain. It also tends to get quite busy as the day goes on. You can rent a mule to...More

Exciting trip up and down the steep periferico for the best view of Quito from above. Quito does have a lot of air pollution so it's not a sparkling view most of the time but it is quite the view all the same and is...More

The view from here is very beautiful. Due to the price, however, I would say if you just go up it’s too expensive. Your most value will be found if you do the full hike, or if you perhaps bike down.

I usually just take a taxi. From the old town it should be about a 15-20 minute ride depending on the traffic. If you dont pay the driver to wait for you, you might have to wait awhile for someone to bring you back down.

It's just a good view. There is a mini cafe but not worth eating there. There is a chapel. Not much else.
