The primary function of this activity is getting to and from the Mitad Del Mundo, and it includes entry fee. The tour guide did provide some history of Quito/Ecuador/Equator during the ride to the site. Upon arrival, he got us into the venue and then let the group do their thing. This was what I was expecting based off description and reviews and what I wanted. We had enough time at the Mitad Del Mundo to also go by the Intiñan Solar Museum which was 3 minute walk from Mitad Del Mundo. The museum has a nice interactive tour as part of their entrance fee which would recommend.
Nice tour. It was a bit hard to understand the driver on the bus. Microphone and accent didn't help. Museums were really cool. Wish we had more time at the actual monument. Would have liked to have seen a few more of the exhibits there. It was a good afternoon though.
The young man took on a bilingual tour. However the Swedish couple didn't receive the same level of info. I know because I'm bilingual. Also they received a lackluster guide at the intanan museum. Oursspanish-speaking guide was wonderful! Also he rushed us through the main park. 20 minutes to shop,take pictures etc. Ridiculous! His English wasn't good enough. His attitude left a lot to be desired. He was the only guide in Quito I didn't tip
We had a very late start, but the tour was great. We enjoyed everything and learned a lot. I was even able to balance an egg on a nailhead! Our guide was very knowledgable and informed. We would recommend this tour to others.
