I did some background research before visiting Intinan.
I am not sure how scientifically proved the sight really is.

This is the true Equator line. The tour was very informative and absolutely fun. Our guide gave us a history lesson and demonstrated the effects of the gravitational influences of the Equator. This is a must do when in Ecuador.

We picked the tour in Spanish and everything went well until a few French people joined our group(mind you, they weren’t part of the group). From that moment on our guide went from Spanish to French. Terrible, just terrible! I would not recommend.
This little museum is hidden but was really nice. Featured both civilization that predated the Incas and had a very enjoyable hands-on equator program. To find it, go to the big Mital de Mundo entrance, turn around and face back to the street. Go left...More

Hiring a guide is a great idea if you have only one day in Quito. Our guide took us to the Centro Historico to see the beautiful churches and colonial architecture, as well as the Intinan Museum. The museum will take 1-2 hours, depending how long you linger in the exhibits. I don't know about public transit to that area of Quito. You should also consider a visit to the Teleferico while in Quito for an impressive view of the city with towering volcanoes in the background.
