This was a great experience! Highly recommend it- did the trek with Expotur and our guide was Camacho - can't recommend him strongly enough- so kind, took care of us all (especially myself as I was sick), was well knowledge and shared a lot of the history, tribes, culture and nature. Such a special experience!

4 day hike in a group of 16, challenging in the intense heat but certainly recommended. Levi brought snacks which help after particular tough cycles, always a smiley face and arranged for a personal talk - just our group - with a native leader on the final night. Food could be improved, vegetarian, but everything else exceeded my expectations for... More

I went to the Lost City trek with Expotur last month. It was a great experience, the guide (Camacho) was very knowledgeable, the food was amazing, the campings were in good shape. I definitely recommend Expotur if you want to see the lost city.

This is a very nice trek with wonderful views. However, it may be exhausting if you are not in shape. I saw many people paying to be carried down the mountain in mules. Not recommended for people with problems in the knees, feet or back. Try to bring a very light backpack and avoid bringing unnecesary stuff: 5 tshirts (one... More

I joined Expotour for the 4 day hike to The Lost City last month on Christmas Day. It was an amazing experience and one I can highly recommend. Our group of 16 people walked at different paces but we all caught up with each other at the various rest stops. Our guide Levi Lara was great and very knowledgeable about... More

Amazing Experience!! I took 4 days tour with my friends beginning of November and it was breathtaking and unforgettable experience. It's not easy, it's really tough - but as all challenging experiences - very rewarding. The whole experience much depends on a professionalism of the tour guide, therefore I highly recommend Wilson from Expotur. He handled and led the tour... More

We took the 6 days tour with Expotur, and our guide was Enrique. There were only Colombians in our group, including a big family with kids. First day/camp was fine, despite our guide didn’t give us any explanation, context, security recommendations or even a proper introduction to himself (attitude he held during the whole time, even when we reached Lost...

Hello. Im agree with your review because this actually happened a few days ago. Its important to say that we can not blame tour companies. Companies are private and dont have any information about how many people have their own competitors every single day therefore tour agencies dont have a limit simply by the reason they dont know when its...

What a phenomenal trek. Highly recommended for those who are ready for an intensive 4 day hike. The Lost City was beautiful (much more than just that stock picture you see online) and the trek itself was well worth it. Our guide Sixto from Expotur was good!

Thank Abe S
