The only minus was that the group was to big in my opinion. We were 22 tourist taking the trek in the same group. One of the nights two people... More

Great hike! Super gorgeous and fun hike! Harder than I expected...but I made it! Our group was super impressed with our guide Enrique and our translator Rafa, the two of them made our trip incredible! One person in our group hurt her knee and needed a donkey for 2 days and I thought that expotur and Enrique handled the situation... More

A wonderful place. Unfortunately there are to many people, more than 100 every day. The trek and the place is wondeful. Well organised.

There are lots of reviews and blogs about the Lost City and if you're thinking of doing it read as many as you can as everyone has a different experience and has different recommendations on what to take etc. This is my take on the trek and the city. Firstly there are only 5 companies that are allowed to do... More

Super trek. Well organised by Expotur. Gabriel is an experienced guide with attention for all participants, and very knowledgeable about the local people and the environment.

It was a lovely 4-day hike. First long trek I have done so far, hard but definitely rewarding. All under guidance by our guide Levi Lara!

If you are travelling through Colombia, this is a MUST EXPERIENCE. It was my first trek, pretty hard but very rewarding. An absolute disconnection with civilization and connection with the world.

Absolutely loved our guide Ariel Gallego! Would highly recommend him with Expotour. He was very knowledgable and friendly and had very strong relationships with the indigenous community.

Went with Expotur and could not have had a better time. Seriously a must do for anyone who likes hiking in pristine nature. It's a challenging hike but the camps exceed expectations (i.e. electricity, great food, and beer) and it's not anywhere near as crowded as some of the other popular hikes in South America (think Machu Picchu).
