Sky-high yet culturally grounded, Quito claims bragging rights as the highest capital city in the world. Combining the city’s esteemed market scene with a cable car’s gorgeous sights, this guided tour through the Ecuadorian gem guarantees you taste as much as you visually take in.

Greet your local guide, and head to the massive foothills of Pichincha. A 13,251-foot (4,100-m) cable car ride carts you to the top of the mountain, and features breathtaking views—both of the surrounding range and the city below. Here, walk through the world’s highest Catholic chapel, perched at a stunning 13,615 feet (4,150 m) above sea-level, and constructed in honor of the Virgin Mary’s many miracles.

Upon your descent, trade panoramic views for people-bartering skills as you veer for Inaquito Market. Situated along the northern edge of the city, this bustling center of commerce is famed for its fresh produce, fragrant spices, medicinal herbs, and boozy beverages.

As you comb through the heart of the market—guide in tow—taste Ecuadorian foods such as crispy fried pork and citrus ceviche, and learn more about the Quito's culinary traditions. Before leaving, be sure to sip the variety of exciting juices being offered, including exotic babaco and tree tomato.

Our tour with Jorge was fantastic, the cable ride to the top of the mountain was great with awesome views of Quito and the surrounding mountains and valleys. We then a tour of an Ecuadorian market with a traditional delicious pork dish for lunch right in the market. Well worth the money and it only took 4 hours.
