We chose Magic Tours despite there being a few negative reviews on TA from a few years ago. It seems that none of the guides from the tour companies speak English, or at least very little. Translators can be hired, but odds are that in a tour group there will be at least one person that can speak good Spanish... More

My sister and I opted for Magic Tour as a friend of hers had used them and recommended their guide Nicholas. Our group was led by Nicholas and Magaly and translated by Olga. Nicholas was an amazing guide who had excellent knowledge of the area and the kogi and wiwas (two of the indigenous tribes in the area). We were... More

I did the trek on the 7th of July 2014. It was a 5 day trek. Jhon our guide gave us the options of A) going to the lost city on day 3 and race there with the 4 day trekkers or option B) relax at our own pace and visit the city on day 4 instead. We decided as... More

We did the lost city trek in 4 days with guias y baquianos! It was an amazing trip! It was a pretty hard trek, but worth it! Our guide Jonathan was really experienced and was also a good cook! The food on the trek is very nice! This was one of the most amazing tours I have ever done!

I visited Ciudad Perdida with my two friends in December 2013. After reading a number of reviews we noticed that quite a few people mentioned the Magic Tours guide called Juan Carlos and decided to call this tour company and book him in advance. We didn't know what to expect, but were hoping that reviews were accurate. We had two... More

We (my friend and I) did the five day trek to Ciudad Perdida with Magictour in February, and it was the highlight of our month in Colombia. We were so well looked after by our guide, Jose Garcia, and his brilliant team.Our group was quite large, though this didn't spoil things at all as everyone was loads of fun, and... More

I was out of shape when I did this trip and it was hard! But it was amazing and I plan to do it again . . . just this time I am going to conquer those mountains! The reward of making it to the ruins was well worth the effort! Reasonably priced and just spectacular terrain. GO!

I recomended you to do it in 5 days. It has the same cost and you dont get too tired. It s a great place dicover a culture and being in contact with the nature. I really like it. If you have the time, you should do it!

A very long and hot journey. Some key bits of advice, don't overpack! If you think you might need it, you won't. The first day is a very long hot uphill climb in the heat. The terrain on this day really reflects the sun, so cover up in sunscreen and sunglasses. After this it's a lot of jungle and forest... More

I have just recently returned from a 4 day hike to Ciudad Perdida and must say that I had a great time. I chose to go with Expotur and had the pleasure of being guided by Camacho and his crew, where they met all our needs, down to excellent food and plenty of downtime along the way for pineapple oclock...
