We went to the Ciudad Perdida with Expotur and we highly recommend their services! Our guide Jhon de la Hoz and the translator Matias were absolutely amazing! Their explanations on the indigenous tribes, their way of life and the area were really detailed, interesting and that made this trip such a unique experience. They clearly know their topic and you... More

We went on the lost City trek with Expotur which we can highly recommend! Expotur was very friendly and helpful. They picked us up at our hostel and brought us back after the trek. We took the 4-days trek which we think was the best option because it is hard anyway. It was a beautiful trek and the lost city... More

Amazing trip. Exotur does a great job with everything. The guide Gabriel is amazing. Ask for him, and get his tour in Spanish. It's a lot of fun, and he explains everything so wonderfully.

Although more challenging as expected we had a great walk/run ;) I would almost say mainly due to the superb guidance of our Expotur guide Angel (Don Carlos). Keep on Walking!!

Really nice trek. Had a great guide in Sixto Ramerez and a great translator in Sergio and his dog Luna. Great views, history and culture. Also lots of opportunities for swimming and diving which was an unexpected bonus. Well worth going

Had a great time walking to and from the lost city. Expotur does a great job organising the trek and José is an excellent and funny guy that knows his stuff and has a lot of respect for the indigenous people. Highly recommend it!
