Full description
Your tour guide will pick you up at 9:00 a.m. from your hotel, in order to drive you towards the north west of Quito to head the famous Intiñan Museum, geographically located at 0 degrees, 0 minutes and 0 seconds, that marks the division between the northern and southern hemispheres as established by the French Geodesic Mission in the Eighteenth Century. You will admire beautiful displays of different ethnic groups in Ecuador, plus the story of their lifestyles, explained by a specialist tour guide! This is the opportunity to be photographed with both of your feet on the northern and southern hemispheres at the same time! After this memorable and fantastic experience in the museum, you will drive to the “Mitad del Mundo” complex, that is located at the San Antonio parish of Quito. The grounds contain the Ethnographic Museum, a museum about the indigenous ethnography of Ecuador. The 30-meter-tall monument, built between 1979 and 1982, was constructed to mark the point where the equator passes through the country in the geodetic datum in use in Ecuador at that time. A line down the centre of the east-facing staircase and across the plaza, was meant to mark the equator and countless tourists over the years have had their pictures taken straddling this line. Then we drive straight to a hidden farm, where you will learn all about the organic products that the local people grow in their backyards, such as coffee, bananas, tangerines, lemons, oranges, etc. While we are walking through the little crops, we will have one of the best opportunities to practice photography, from an extremely short distance, of about 20 species of Hummingbirds, 6 species of Tannagers, 2 species of Quetzals, toucans, flower piercers, and much more! After this memorable experience, you'll have time to relax and enjoy a craft beer tasting at a local brewery. You will finish this fantastic adventure at 4:00 p.m!
