    The tour covered the basics. I wish it was more interactive. The guides could’ve been more descriptive but good basic tour overall.

    Good way to move around in Quito if you have limited time. You should note however, that the frequency of the buses (one hour) is considerably higher than found in other cities of the world for hop-on hop-off tour services.

    Great way to see important parts of Quito. In English and Spanish. Buses usually about an hour apart so get off at spots you want to spend some time at.

    This tour was underwhelming. Although it takes you to all the stops advertised, the guide gives you little to no information about the stops. However, you do get some information from pre-recorded audio on the bus in Spanish and English. The best part of the tour was the 30 minute stop it gives you at the Virgin de Quito. This stop is a great place to take photos, shop, and eat.

    Really nice to see the main attractions which are worth to see. You get to make your own Schedule and be your own guide which was nice. the bus stopped are well indicated, there's no was to get lost. The city is beautiful and i really liked to visit it by walk.

    The tour sounded better than what it actually was. Although the staff were wonderful and they were very informative and helpful.

    This hop-on hop-tour is a great value and it provides a good overview of Quito. I took this tour the day before beginning an 8 day tour of Ecuador. Stop 4 is directly across the street from the Hilton Colon where I stayed. Highly recommend this tour. Recorded commentary is provided in English and Spanish. Sit on the top of the bus for the best views and photographs.

    This is such a great value. The bus promptly picks and drops off at all stops. I bought the voucher here in advance, presented to driver upon boarding and received a small ticket in exchange to use for rest of day. The guide on the bus was very helpful and answered all my questions. Before doing the trip, I mapped out all my stops on their website and was able to plan exactly when/where to go. I really enjoyed riding on the top deck and the longer stop at El Panecillo. There is no way getting around by taxi would give you the same value, insight or efficiency.

    A great day touring Quito on the Hop On/Hop Off bus. The buses were on time, drivers were careful, staff were pleasant and friendly. All the stops were interesting. A great way to see much of Quito in one day!
