Nice view - but a bit overrated - must take a long taxi ride to get to the bottom of the Gondola. Bring your own snacks :)

We decided to take the ride up the teleferico one afternoon. Because it was a national holiday, everyone in Quito was there, too. The ride up is a little frightening if you are afraid of heights, but it is also relaxing. You need to bring...More

You can see the whole city from up there! Worth going up, but bring a headband or sweater as it gets very windy!

I usually just take a taxi. From the old town it should be about a 15-20 minute ride depending on the traffic. If you dont pay the driver to wait for you, you might have to wait awhile for someone to bring you back down.
