Just an amazing experience and great guides. Early up and early to bed and still there was time to have fun and bath in the river.

We've just got back and Expotur have been really good with nice guides and a very challenging but worthwhile trek. One improvement for them would be to make ornate more personal - by the end the guides didn't know our names. The big issue we...More

We really enjoyed our trek thanks to Ariel and Herbert who gave us the best from Colombia and the lost city history. Special thanks for the birthday cake and Herbert's shoes! Much love from the five frenchies
