... for a well motivated but insufficiently trained couple in their forties. I had heard about Ciudad Perdida during a stay in Colombia about 20 years ago and got excited about seeing this magical site for myself. Due to internal hostilities (aka Civil War) it was not really possible at that time, but I kept it in mind and returned... More

We took this trip with Expotur and really enjoyed it. We asked for an english speaking guide and they were the only one who could get one. The guide Miguel was awesome, his english was ok, especially considering our fears after reading other reviews. I recommend you ask for him. He was very knowledgable, funny and always in a good...

We had a fantastic time on the Lost City Trek. The scenery is breathtaking and the ruins are well worth it hidden away in the jungle. I think it made it extra special only being accessed via the trek. Our guide 'Jhon' was very informative and fun from Expotur. The accommodation was basic - though I really enjoying sleeping in...

It all started on my first night in Colombia, when one of the agency's marketing men came to our hostel to present the trek. The guy's name was Miller and he really made us passionate about signing up for the trek and promised us (among other things) an English translator. The next morning the jeep came to pick us up,...

The trek itself was fantastic. The Lost City is itself worth it, but the scenery along the way and all the swimming holes were just as rewarding. Yes, it is very challenging. Even though we were both fit and seasoned hikers, our feet and knees were quite sore by the end. As others have said, the accommodation is basic, but... More

I hiked the 5 day tour via Expotur, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was lucky to be in a group with people who were friendly, everyone seemed to get along well in the group (upon hearing we would have 15 in our group I was a little worried it would be too big, but it was great). Our... More

In january 2015, I went to the Lost city with my friends. We did the tour with Expotur and the guide SIXTO, who was an excellent guide, knows a lot from the region, the Lost city, the Indians, the birds, etc.It was an amazing experience for four days full of nature.

I just completed the Lost City treck and had an amazing experience! While the treck wad definitely more of a challenge than I had anticipated, I still felt that I was able to relax and take in the incredible journey. Much of this is thanks to our incredible guide, Sixto. He made sure we were always prepared for what was... More

Amazing experience. We went for a 5 day tour hike to visit Lost city and spend our New Year's eve there. I choose Turcol Tour and I liked it since we were quite a small group in comparison to other tours. We had 2 guides, both Spanish speaking. Trek is a bit hard and be prepared to get dirty, wet...
