Was my first time doing an overnight / multi day hike so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But the Magic Tour and the guides and cook they provided (Ali, Steven and Elliot) went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. We were travelling in a group of 8, including 4 vegetarians and 1 celiac, and they gladly accommodated for each individuals dietary requirements. (fantastic and plentiful food!)

The guides were both passionate and knowledgeable about the area, it’s indigenous people and the history that surrounds it. Very insightful and inspiring!

Would highly recommend this experience and company to anyone visiting Colombia!

I had an amazing guided tour to the Cuidad Perdida. The entire 4 day excursion was well-organized and excellently executed by the company including the amazing guide Walter and translator Andrea. The tent style beds in nature, fruit snacks en route and exceptional meals balanced out the tomb raider style expedition on the mountain tops and through the rainforests of the sierra nevada. This was the best hike ive been on!

The 4 days hike to Ciudad Perdida was amazing! We were with a big group of people and from the start the 4 guides made us feel like a family. It was possible to walk your own pace, as there was always a guide in the front and in the back.

The guides were amazing: Magaly, Jeremy, Eduardo and the best Styben. All of them were full of passion and had so much knowledge. Especially Styben brought so much fun, energy and knowledge that the tour was incredible. If I would do the Ciudad Perdida again I’d 100% go for Magic Tours again.

Incredible adventure! Had a blast on this trip and would gladly recommend to friends. Magic Tour was the perfect tour company. Since beginning to plan the trip 3 months before the start date, the front office was timely and response in helping to coordinate whatever requests or questions I had.

The tour itself was fantastic with excellent tour guides and helpful English interpreters. While we had one of the larger tours on the trek, the larger group size came with additional guides which allowed us to spread out more along the hiking trail. Surprisingly, I think having a larger group was actually better for this trek, as it allowed for more solo hiking during the day and made evenings at camp a lot more fun.

The hike itself was strenuous but also a lot of fun - definitely plenty of elevation gains throughout. Big shoutout to our English translators Carlos and Tyson - they were both excellent and made the trip exponentially better. Casey, our local guide, was fantastic and fun to hang out with throughout the journey. We received plenty of information regarding the surrounding area and the history of the Lost City. Speaking with other tour groups, it was clear that we were provided with far more background than was provided by other tour companies. We also spent time speaking with members of local indigenous tribes, which was fascinating.

There were definitely plenty of bugs on the trek - be sure to bring DEET insect repellent and I would avoid bringing hiking bag into bed with me at night. Use sleeping bag liner.

Overall would highly recommend this trip and Magic Tour company. I did a lot of research in advance and it was clear that they were one of the best organized companies to work with.

We did the 4-day Ciudad Perdida hike last week and it was just amazing! Special thanks to Jair, Jeremy, Elkin and the cook for creating an unforgettable experience. They carried our bags when we it was to hard climbing up for 50mins.. and they took care of my friend who was already sick before we even started hiking (she still finished the hike!). I recommend everyone to do this hike when you are in Northern Colombia and to book it with Magic Tours. Saludos Chris and Janneke

I can highly recommend to do the trip to Ciudad Perdida with Magic Tour. Our guide NELSON and translator STYBEN were awesome and made sure we're well all the time. The track and camps are all the same for most of the companies, except for Wiwa tours who stay at a different accomodation location. I think what set Magic Tour/our guides apart was that they were really caring for the group, jumping into rivers to make sure we cross safely, and just maintaining a really great energy in the group with their positive attitude. You can look forward to being woken up by Styben singing at 5am ;)
Also, I very much appreciated the content about the culture and history of the region, which I think was more extensive than what other groups got to hear along the way. Be prepared for 4 intense days, but it's absolutely worth it. If you think about doing 5 days I would not chose the longer trip, as the difference is only the last day: if you chose 5 days you'll get an extra 1/2 day at camp 1 with the waterfalls at the end of day 4, but I don't think it makes the trip less exhausting as day 1-3 are the same ;) If you love swimming in natural pools and want to prolong for this reason, go for 5 days.

My father and I recently trekked the Lost City Hike with Magic Tour, and the experience was more amazing than I could have imagined. Not only was the Magic Tour group incredibly organized prior to the event and very helpful in answering our questions, for the hike itself we could not have asked for a better guide Magaly, American translator Andrea and cook Casey. My father had done several hikes prior, but this was my first hike. Our guide Magaly was not only very knowledgeable about the terrain and the history of the Lost City and its people, she was also so patient and helpful during the hike with at one point holding my hand so we could cross the stairs together when she saw I was having difficulty. Andrea’s humor and wonderful energy are unbeatable; she effortlessly was making us laugh during our entire hike! I was very impressed with the food they served each meal, and they had snack breaks ready for us right when we needed them throughout the trek. Each evening we arrived to a set-up camp with clean beds and mosquito nets covering our individual beds. Magic Tour also picked us up from our hotel and took us to the hike as well as dropping us off at our hotel after our hike which was very helpful. I have already recommended Magic Tour to my friends and family and look forward to doing more tours with them when I return to Colombia. Thank you for everything Magic Tour!

We did the Trek Ciudad Perdida with Magic tour and the guides Melkys, Brian (English translator) and Nikolas aka Junior (the best cooker).

It was an amazing time.

The Trek itself is a bit hard and you'll feel your muscles working the more you get closer to the famous Lost City. But you'll forget all the pain when you'll arrive up there.

About the organisation: Melkys, Brian and Junior were amazing. Really keen to make your trip as wonderful as possible. The meals are amazing, all of the stories about the Trek, the indigenous and the ciudad perdida itself are really interesting and were told with a lot of knowledge and passion.

Everything is set up for you to be easily focus on your walk. Every camps are provided with showers, toilets, drinkable water, electricity and a river where you can swim after a long day of walking.

We met amazing people up there, we learned a lot about the Sierra Nevada, the indigenous and Colombia.

We were just a bit uncomfortable with the indigenous. Going through their villages and seeing a bit of their intimacy. We would have liked to avoid that part.

But anyway, thanks again for everything! We recommend this tour at 100%.

We hiked to ciudad perdida in 3 days.

Our guide Sergio was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. It felt like we had met up with a friend and went on a hike with him in his native mountains. The views are spectacular the hike itself is challenging but not exhausting and the city you get to is beautiful. Along the way, the sleeping situation was well organized and comfortable and the food was good. Thank you for a great experience.

A brilliant 4day trek to The Lost City with our amazing tour guides; Pedro, Sergio, Samuel and our cook Hesus. The guides have an significant amount of information about the indigenous people, the lost city and its heritage. Food was brilliant, beds were comfortable and clean. Great showering and toilet facilities despite being in the middle of nowhere! Great opportunities to swim in rivers and chill with other groups in afternoon. A must do if enjoy hiking and want an adventure in the Sierra Nevada hills 👌🏻
