Tour Information


Overview
  • This tour allows you to do three activities in one afternoon! We provide transportation to the following sites: The Middle of the World Monument, which despite its erroneous placement is a great photo-op; the nearby Intiñan Museum, known for its myth-busters approach to the middle of the world and its phenomena, where you can also attempt to balance an egg on a needle, experience first-hand the power of earth's magnetic forces. It is also includes an Ethnographic Museum so that you can learn about Ecuador's culture; upon return, you have the option of staying at Quito's Teleférico (Drop off only, transport does not wait for you) the cable car which takes you up 4050 meters atop the Pichincha volcano, where you can experience one of the city's most beautiful sunsets.

    You can bring your passport if you want to get a stamp on it from Zero Latitude!

Our guide was humorous and fun as he led us around the serpentine pathways to various parts of the exhibit. The best part was the ending where we tried different tests of equator magnetism, and it was really fun. Our guide spoke good English and seemed to really enjoy what he was doing.

The tour did not actually stop at the Teleferico due to inclement weather, despite us asking to visit regardless. However, the transport to the Middle of the World and Intinan Museum would have been much more expensive with a taxi or Uber, so this still remains a good value tour.

You're basically just paying for transportation, but its reasonably priced. The tour picks up from a hostel in Old Town. I recommend buying the trip directly from the hostel, as it it only $10 instead of $15.
The museum was interesting. They give you a brief introduction to Ecuadorian natives and chocolate, along with activities about the equator.
Monument you can basically see from the outside gate so its not really worth the $5 entrance fee.

This tour was just a taxi ride. I don"t think it was worth it, and shouldn"t be classified as a "tour" as there was no one escorting the group or instructions on what to do. And the taxi driver got lost multiple times on route.

Cheap alternative to other offers. Still, it's a tourist trap, one of three centers of the world I saw.
