We did the trek to the Lost City from July 27 to July 30 and I must say it was the highlight of my trip to Colombia. Despite the challenging terrain, the final ascent to the Lost City was amazing and beautiful. None of this...More

Great experience! Expotur is a great organization for this trek. Everything was correctly arranged (accomodation, food, guide...). Our guide, Mathias, spoke very well English, explained a lot during the hike and made everyone feel at home. Would do it again immediately!

We are really enjoyed our hiking with expotours. Especially with our guides Wilson and Santiago. They were really helpful and cared about everything. And they were communicative as well:)

The trek to the Ciudad Perdida with Expotur is stunning and the Lost City itself is fascinating. Because it can only be reached on foot, there were not many other people there so it is not spoilt by being overrun with tourists waving their selfie-sticks....More

Hard to say, but I think a flight to one of the bigger airports in the USA and than a flight to Santa Marta or Cartagena. Good luck!
