Excellent tour! The trek was fun, the food was good, and the information on the area and lost city was very interesting. Our guide, Enrique, was phenomenal, as was the translator Juan Diego. The trek is tough, but doable, and there are places to take breaks along the way with snacks. The scenery is incredible. Our tour was with Expotur,... More

First, let me say, this was the hardest hike I've done--mainly because of the steep ascents and descents as well as the terrain, which in some cases is very washed out and technical. Few easy patches.Really enjoyed our guide, Sixto, whose sense of humor and knowledge of the history of the Lost City made the trip special. A final shout-out... More

Me and my friend had an awsome time! Enjoyed the trip - was picked up at our hotel and everything was perfectly planned. We spent 4 days where we hiked and had lots of fruit and snacks besides the nice meals. Accomodation was also very good. The groups at expotours are small so you can soak in everything. Our guide...

Expotur The Lost City was the best organised tour I've ever been on. Obviously the hiking, the endless jungle and mountain terrain and scenery was stunning and an adventure to travel through. Not to mention the magic of The Lost City itself. But the real deal breaker was our fantastic tour guide Gabriel and our equally amazing translator Josa! They... More

This was definitely one of the hardest treks I have ever done. Full of lots of steep inclines/declines and so many times you were ankle depth in mud. Expotur was a wonderful company to go with, you received so much food, so you definitely will never go hungry! They have everything available from fresh drinking water and snacks including fruits...

We did the lost city Tour with expotours. We did the 4 day track, the hike is quite tough, but the surroundings and views are amazing! We were lucky that we had a great guide: Levi. He knew a lot about the lost city and the indigenous people, and made sure we were safe and on time at the camps.We... More

I have been at Ciudad Perdida with Expoturs last Christmas. It was an outstanding adventure which included special input by our Guides Ismael and Matthias - you have to ask for them directly when you go there. Ismael is giving interesting input all over the tour. You are learning a lot about the life and the habits of the Kogis... More

We hiked 4 days to ciudad perdida with our guide Juan Diego. He was not only friendly and well informed, you could also feel his passion when he told the stories about the region and the beliefs and lifestyle of the indigenous people. We were a group of 12 people and had a lot of fun together. Overall, this was... More

1. Tour operator: We did the 4 day trek with Magic Tours and it was really an amazing experience just because of our guide - Juan Carlos. Honestly he is the reason why we enjoyed it so much and why we were able to follow our own pace and take in the scenery, beauty or even a beer along the... More
