The Equator Highlights


Customers Reviews 2 Reviews

I had a great half day tour to the equator. Booking through the website was easy, and Angel was very responsive to all my questions. My guide, Marcelo, was on time, personable and professional. I knew this tour would be somewhat touristy, but since I was in Ecuador I wanted to see the equator. We went to the “real” equator which was somewhat of an outdoor museum. The guided tour was good; we saw different exhibits and conducted some experiments. After this, I didn’t think it was necessary to go to the monument and museum at the original equator spot, so we skipped that. I would recommend this tour and GreenGo Travel.

It was a great tour, we had a lot of fun, kids were entertained…it was easy going, we filled in the afternoon and the guide was very knowledgeable.
