Quito Tour Bus - Other Activity Quito - Ecuador

The Quito Tour Bus is a convenient and comfortable way to see all of the city's main attractions. Each day, the modern two-story tour buses leave from Avenida Naciones Unida (diagonal to the Quicentro Shopping mall, in front of the park by the pedestrian bridge) at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. The bus makes a thorough three-hour journey through the city with stops at 12 different sights, including the Botanical Garden, Plaza Foch, La Basílica, El Panecillo, Centro Histórico's Plaza Grande, and the TeleferiQo cable car. Passengers can hop on and off at any of the stops within 24 hours of their ticket purchase. On the way, you will also learn important historical and cultural information about the various places through a pre-recorded audio commentary in english. There is also an evening ride that leaves at 7:30 p.m. if you would like to see the city lit up at night. You can pay for the bus as you board or buy tickets in advance.
