Ciudad Perdida is a very nice place, but I would not had gone if I would had known this (and is the first time I can say this). When you go to this trip you know it´s not going to be easy: Rainforest, long days, mosquitos, humidity, etc. But you are aware of this. What do you don´t expect is... More

We loved our lost city trip w Magic tours. Hernan at the office was so helpful ( he even found my lost waterbottle:)). Our team-Pedro, Tommy, Junio, and Bridget- were amazing. Pedro is a local and had a wealth of knowledge. The food was fantastic and the scenery spectacular. We had a large group of 16 but we were all... More

We did the 3 days Cabo de la Vela / Punta Gallinas Tour. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed by the so-called tour. Don't expect a guided tour. There will be only a driver who doesn't say anything as long as you're not asking (but we might have been also just very unlucky with ours..). You don't get any information on... More

Magic Tours was recommended to us by some fellow travelers who had used them for the trek. We were not disappointed. Our guide, Jesus, was extremely professional and knowledgeable, having worked with the local tribes for many years and guided trips to the Lost City for about 20. He taught us not only about the history of this mysterious place... More

The hike to Ciudad Perdida starts outside of Santa Marta, Colombia. It is 46 km roundtrip, with altitude changes of over 1000 meters on some days. It was a fantastic experience to hike in and see the ruins, but getting there is certianly not for the faint of heart. There are a number of technical portions of the hike that... More

In January I went on a 4 day hike to Cuidad Perdida with Magic Tours. I read about it a little but didn't really know what to expect. I know now that it is a tough hike. Definitely not for everybody, but if you like hiking and are in a bit of a good shape: go for it. It was... More

We were told it was an easy walk but never told how long or how demanding, especially when we are not used to walk long distances. We were originally looking for beaches and maybe a short trek, but 20 km in 4hours was not at all what we expected, this shouldn't be "easy" level. The tour guide was a whole... More

We had a really good ciudad perdida hike and NOBODY in our group got sick! Magic tour provided a translator for the foreigners which was very helpful. The interaction with indigenous people seemed very respectful. As a recommendation to the accomodations: compost toilets would be something urgently needed to stop polluting the local rivers with tourist wastes!

Perfect hiking with astonishing views. The guide Saul and translator Jose made a great job, so we did learn a lot about the history of the place as well as the actual situation of farmers and indigenous families. The hike is demanding, but you can give your backpack to the mules.
