Amazing trip. Exotur does a great job with everything. The guide Gabriel is amazing. Ask for him, and get his tour in Spanish. It's a lot of fun, and he explains everything so wonderfully.

Although more challenging as expected we had a great walk/run ;) I would almost say mainly due to the superb guidance of our Expotur guide Angel (Don Carlos). Keep on Walking!!

Really nice trek. Had a great guide in Sixto Ramerez and a great translator in Sergio and his dog Luna. Great views, history and culture. Also lots of opportunities for swimming and diving which was an unexpected bonus. Well worth going

Had a great time walking to and from the lost city. Expotur does a great job organising the trek and José is an excellent and funny guy that knows his stuff and has a lot of respect for the indigenous people. Highly recommend it!

Almost everyone I have talked to has got sick. Is that because of the food or the purified water? And if it's the water, how can you avoid this? Really just wanna get sick?

It would be better to have hiking shoes, but I saw folks hiking in trainers and they're fine.
