We went with WIWA tours because they have the indigenous guides. The good thing is that in this way they explain about the rituals they have and you camp at other campsites than other groups so it feels more authentic. For the rest there are no advantages going with this company. We didn't get any explanation about the history of... More

I had an amazing time with a great group of people, and Rafael, an indigenous tour guide who was able to answer any questions we had.The landscape is incredible, and although expensive (all companies charge the same price I am glad that I did it. Wiwa differs from other companies by using local guides providing more information and attachment to... More

We took the 2d tour of Wiwa to go visit Cabo de la Vela and once again it was a great experience. Last year I already used their services to go to the Lost City. Cabo de la Vela was a 2d tour, loads of time in the car to reach it, but it changes all the time so does... More

Our group was incredibily happy that we booked via Wiwa Tours!! We got to know so much about their culture, habbits and way of looking at nature it was really great! Also in the camps we saw other tourguides, but we felt that ours was best. Because we had the Ciudad Perdida for ourselves for about 30 minutes (which means,... More

We had a great experience with Jose Maria and Wiwa Tours. I recommend Wiwa Tours because the company is run by the local Wiwa people. Jose Maria gave us a great insight into the culture , nature and history. The guides speak Spanish, for English speakers you might be fortunate to have an English and Spanish speaker in your group,... More

We went on a tour with Wiwa guided by an indigenous man whose Western name was Abel. He was very attentive, focused on solving whatever problems we had and was very generous with the afternoon chats about culture and beliefs of the Wiwa and the meaning of the Lost City. Wiwa tour did an excellent job of organization. A really... More

Wow... what a trip! Let me start by saying I would recommend anyone looking to go on this hike to go with Wiwa Tours. We had the pleasure to walk with Gabo and Chomacco (apologies if this isn't spelled correctly). They are two Indigenous brothers of the Wiwa tribe, and have huge amounts of knowledge and respect for the park... More
