What people are saying about Middle of the World

This was an awesome way to see, learn and experience Quito. Andre our tour guide was very informative, spoke wonderful English and was extremely friendly and approachable. The only thing I recommend and I wish we had of known before the tour was to bring your passport so it could get stamped at Middle Earth! But apart from that, we had an awesome day and would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

The tour was very interesting. Our guide Andreas has packed a lot of info in an interesting and funny way and provided a good atmosphere. The group dynamic was great! Because the tour covers several stations, it was difficult to go into detail about everything. Nevertheless, you get more than just a rough overview. I recommend it!

We were a small group of seven. The tour guide for Enjoy Ecuador Tour Operado spoke fluent English. We toured in a trolley which was very quaint. This was a very affordable option

This trip was good value for money. Hit the main spots of Quito. Jackie was a good guide- went to a traditional Ecuadorian lunch

Great tour! You will be able to see the main attractions in one day
