It was the coolest thing I did in my time in Colombia. Thanks to our guide Jose and our translator Bryan we had the best of times. I myself made a mistake in taking too much stuff with me. When people tell you to pack light this is not a lie haha. You are well taken care of and get... More

During this hike, I met so many interesting people, learned a lot about the region and the people living there, and really got to enjoy being outside in the Colombian forest/mountains. The four day hike was definitely challenging but totally worth it. Be ready to sweat for hours on end. For someone in decent shape, I found the hike to... More

We hiked in 4 days to the Ciudad Perdida and it was definitely worth it, but you have to be in good physical condition. The accommodations are basic but OK. The guides they take good care of you and there is plenty of food and snacks. We had no rain so we were lucky because with rain some parts of... More

This trek was a very tough 5 days for us (4 guys in our twenties, middling athletic ability) but worth it (now that it's done!) Positives: stunning views, learn about and interact with indigenous people, nice to get away from technology, wholesome 3 meals a day with plenty of fruit, great guide (John), swimming in natural pools amazing after day...

First things first. Last Wednesday 15 of June I was robbed at the 1st camp. During the night someone entered my bed, opened my backpack and took my money (400.000COP, around 130usd). The guides suspect who it was (had happened before) but could do nothing about it. I tell you this first, so that it doesn't happen to you! So... More

I was so impressed with our Turcol lost city experience! We did a 5 day trek with a guide called Arjeni who was fantastic - really friendly, imformative, and passionate about his work. The trip was really well organised with huge amounts of really tasty food, bunk beds with good mosquito nets, showers at each camp, lost of refreshments...I would... More

it's a really nice place to visit. We were a group of 12 people doing the trekking with other 3 groups. In high season (June-Agoust) the place is really crowed so I recommend you guys do it at the rest of the year. It's exhousting the trekking but it worhted it.

First off, no matter what the guidebook say, this is a very challenging hike. The heat and humidity are really, really oppressive (and I'm from Florida) and most of the trail is either straight up or straight down with no switchbacks. All that being said, we enjoyed our trip with Expotur. Our guide, Javier, was fantastic--helpful, knowledgeable and fun. The... More

We had a great time during this hike in the jungle. It was a tough one but we enjoyed every single minute in the nature with a great group and our awesome guide Juan Diego. He made the trip with his knowledge and his way of doing the hike to something really really special. My legs still hurt but I'll... More

We had a small group of 8 and we went in May, the rain season. Sometimes we had some rain in the afternoon, but overall it was really good weather. The food was amazing, the views awesome, the translator and especially the guide (Ariel Allego) were nice, friendly and funny. We met some indigenous people during the Hike as well... More
