I did this trek with Expotur and my quide was Camacho. I originally signed up for days but when I arrived everybody else was doing four so I thought I would see how it went. Even though I was slower than my group the guide was fantastic and translator had fab English and both were great company! The food was... More

I really liked my trip. Food was great and our guide were the best ! If you take this trip, please ask for Don Gabriel to guide you. This dude is 76 years old and has been doing this for more than 20 years.

The nature along the trek is beautiful, the closer you get to the lost city the nicer the views and the greener the forest. Definately worth the effort. The 4-days trip it is a tough trek, at times with steep climbing for kilometers. We slept well in beds every night, all beds have mosquito nets. Beatiful swimming pools in the... More

Just completed the 4 day Lost City trek in early October, organised by ExpoTur with Sixto (guide), Sergio (translator), and Danielo (cook). Had a great time with the crew and a must do in Colombia! Sixto has great knowledge of the history and culture of the local tribes which you can't get from a Lonely Planet book and Sergio was... More

I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said. The trip is very challenging, make sure you have a good level of fitness. The peak is absolutely worth the hard work. Don't pack too much, it is difficult to carry everything! Lastly I can absolutely recommend Ali from Magic Tours and Jhon from Exotur (spelling?) The tour guides... More

I recently completed the Ciudad Perdida trek with Expotur - this was without doubt a highlight of my 2 weeks on the Caribbean Coast of Columbia. It was amazing landscape trekking through the jungles and across rivers. What really made me appreciate this experience is that you are walking through such incredible history - both ancient and recent. The indigenous... More

My boyfriend and I did this trek in late September (rainy season) and it was the highlight of our two week holiday in Colombia. It was REALLY hard work (and I am fit and healthy - I swam a 10km race the weekend before....). Bring/buy proper waterproof trekking shoes. We did get totally drenched one day, but it was a... More

In September 2014, we did the 4 day lost city trek with Expotur and John as a guide. This was a wonderful experience: after 3 days of walking through jungle, rivers, mountains and indigenous villages with tremendous views we reached the lost city. This city lies beautiful in thick jungle and it is magical to reach this historic site after... More

I spend a 5 days for the lost City treck trip with the guide named Cesar from Expotour travel agency. All was perfect. Organization, walk, food and of course all the explanations he gave us about the area, indigenous people, drug growing history... Wonderful ! I strongly recommand this trip with Cesar as your guide Romain

I did this trek with expotour a few weeks ago! We had Archie as our guide and Facundo as our translator, they made a good team as they catered to different paces and fitness levels. This trek was a lot more difficult than I was expecting (only reasonably fit and have a fondness for cigarettes) so it was a very... More
