We booked the last tour before the Ciudad Perdida closed on the 1st of September for two weeks for the secret annual Indio ceremonies. The experience was very good. The motto: the way is the goal. We strove through an amazing landscape of pure jungle and peaked at the lost city. Our guide Angel from ExpoTour was very funny, helpful... More

We booked a four day trip at one of the Travel Agencies in Taganga. They told us they are just vendors and do not operate the tour and that instead Magic Tours would be "on the ground". We payed the usual fee - it wasn't more expensive via the vendor. We booked at 8 in the evening and got picked... More

A must have in Colombia! 4 days in the middle of the jungle! And the apotheoses on the 3rd day when you discover the famous lost city! Thanks to Expotur and particularly to Diego, our guide, an amazing guy (kind, supportive, helpful and knowing perfectly the region and the history of the indigenous)

The Lost City Trekking is a tough one. But if you're in good condition, then I would definitely recommend doing it! And if you decide to do it, then book with Expotur! They are very professional, have good guides and cooks, and are well organized. The hike up to the lost city is heavy but our guide Angel always made... More

The 4 day trek is an amazing experience which gets your through beautiful landscapes in the jungle and refreshing swims in the river during breaks. The Lost City itself is much more than the pictures on internet - it truly is an impressive and inspiring place Last, i recommend Expotur as they were very professionnal and helpful in the organization...

Juan Diego is the perfect guide that you can have to do the lost city, he knows everythings about the place and Kuogi story, its very exciting, he really lives what he says about the kuogi's way of live.

This trek is extremely hard (especially as a first trek) because of the conditions (heat, rain, mud, mosquitoes, humidity...) so you will need an excellent guide to help you through! Juan Diego from Expotur is the one. He gives you tips when you're struggling and gives a lot of explanations, historical and cultural. He's the best guide we have had... More

4 days and 3 nights was rather intense with the humid heat and a lot of up and down hill. As we understood it the only difference to the 5 day tour was the last day splitting the 6-7 hour hike in two days, making it well worth the extra effort the last day. Always, always, always wear mosqito repellant... More
