My brother and I did the four-day hike to the Lost City. It was unquestionably the highlight of our trip to Colombia. We went with Expotur and were definitely happy with the experience. Our guide, Wilson, was really helpful and kind. The hike itself was incredible, although as a word of caution, it was surprisingly challenging. We did 5-10 hours... More

Amazing trek with an amazing guide, Yonatan, from the agency Guias y Baquianos. It really worth it to do this trek! We were 7 in the group, a perfect number. Yonatan was amazing, while the other guide from other agency at night let the group alone, Yonatan explain you a lot of stories about the place, really interesting. We were... More

Awesome group, great food and loads of information about the indegenious culture and local history! As mentioned above, ask for Jhon as your guide. He made this four day trek absulutely amazing. It's challenging to get there but the ciudad perdida is just stunning and absolutely worth the effort!

My husband and I have just fulfilled a wonderful experience.We completed The Lost City Trek with Expotur, and Comancho as our guide. Making this trip really special was the group of people we had supporting us! We are not the typical Lost City Trekkers, we are over 50, and found the physical demands quite challenging. This is where the crew... More

I love a good sweat / effort required to get somewhere cool and I loved our 4 day trek to Colombia’s Lost City: Cuidad Perdida with ExpoTur. Expotur was great (helpful guides, good food, beds with mosquito nets) but don’t be fooled: this trek is definitely no walk in the park. The first day you hike into camp up very... More

This hike should be on everyones to-do list but be warned - it is not easy. A lot of uphill trekking in the mud and rain but the views make it all worth while. As with the previous reviews ASK FOR JHON from expotour, the guy will bend over backwards to make your trip safer and more enjoyable + You... More

The Lost City trek with Expotur and Jhon as our guide was an incredible 4 days. The whole experience with Expotur was brilliant, the food was great, Andy our translator was lovely and worked very hard, the accommodation was very comfortable. I really wanted to write a review to say how amazing Jhon was as a guide. I had seen... More

Everybody giving these reviews must be regular hikers because this hike is HARD! It's either boiling hot or raining and the paths are terrible in the rain! Only reason I enjoyed was due to our fantastic guides; miller from Guias y Baquianos and rodrigo from magic tours. Our guide miller will often join with other groups who's guide can't speak... More
