I thoroughly enjoyed the trek. Be prepared for hard walking and much sweating but it was all worth it and was incredibly rewarding. The lost city itself was awe-inspiring. Much bigger than I expected and not busy at all as they limit it to 120...More

Very well organized trip from day one. Comfort level better than thought (beds, showers, snacks and meals on the way). Guide (Antonio) and translator (Jorge) were very helpful and told us interesting facts and background knowledge about Teyuna park.
