I had an incredible time visiting the lost city! My amazing tour guides were Abraham and Tommy:) it was a tough but great experience that I can recommend anyone to do! My guides were great and truly explained and went into detail, while visiting indigenous towns and the great scenery!

Ariel was such an amazing guide. He was kind, attentive, and always made me feel very safe. The guides not only lead us safely through the trails, but also show us wildlife, different species of animals, and even help serve breakfast-lunch-dinner!

To begin with, this wad a tough hike. When they said you should be fit I underestimated the meaning of the statement. But maybe this feeling rather came from my set backs along the journey. I got real big blisters from day one and was also food poisoned day two. So I was, mildly speaking, very weak when we were... More

I read all the reviews saying it was very difficult but I wasn't sure what I was in for. Its a great hike with amazing views for anyone in decent shape.

Ceser was extremely well informed, interesting and an active member of the group. He did everything to make sure that everyone stayed positive and well... More

We had a great trek with Turcol. They let us keep our luggage at their office for free, they were all on schedule and Sergei and Janeth were great guides! The only minus was that the group was to big in my opinion. We were 22 tourist taking the trek in the same group. One of the nights two people... More

Great hike! Super gorgeous and fun hike! Harder than I expected...but I made it! Our group was super impressed with our guide Enrique and our translator Rafa, the two of them made our trip incredible! One person in our group hurt her knee and needed a donkey for 2 days and I thought that expotur and Enrique handled the situation... More

A wonderful place. Unfortunately there are to many people, more than 100 every day. The trek and the place is wondeful. Well organised.
