When you were interested in Quito as a tourist destination, you surely heard about the famous monument of the Middle of the World on the Equatorial Line. In this popular tourist spot you can take a picture with your feet on both hemispheres at the same time. But if you are visiting the city with your partner, do not miss taking a picture kissing each other but placed in different hemispheres.
This will be an experience that you can hardly repeat in other parts of the world, so we invite you to experience it through our Equator Line Tour. In this tour you will reach this destination and you will get to know not only the Middle of the World Touristic Complex but also the Pululahua Volcano Crater Lookout.
Nothing is more romantic than sharing a dinner or a coffee with your partner in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. We invite you to live this experience in one of the most exclusive restaurants in the city: Pim’s “El Panecillo”. This restaurant offers a romantic atmosphere, an outstanding view of the city of Quito, and the opportunity to enjoy unforgettable sunsets.
