I chose to deal with this company as it had good prices and was recommended by a travel guide. I particularly wanted to do one of their trips: Isluga Volcano which their website said took place on a Saturday. As I was travelling to Iquique on the Friday they told me that the tour had already taken place the day... More

We went on the altiplano tour w/magical tours in iquique, was lovely to see some of the higher countryside, learn some of the history of the land, the people and beautiful views. The van was comfortable which was good because it's a long day sitting. Mariano was nice and proud of his land and his company. It was rushed in... More

In January 2016 we went on three tours with Magical Tour Chile - to the abandoned saltpetre towns of Humberstone & Santa Laura,to the remote historic town of Pisagua and to the Termas de Chusmiza. All were well organised and limited to small groups. The transportation was by comfortable minibus. We were the only non-native Spanish speakers, and Mauricio explained... More

A principios de Enero fuimos con mi hijo y su polola (americanos) a la aventura de Isluga. Nuestros guias fueron Mauricio y America. Un viaje espectacular, Mauricio sabe mucho de la historia del norte, de la cultura india, de sus costumbres. Aprendimos y gozamos de los paisajes! Esta es la segunda vez que hago un tour con esta agencia porque... More

I read all the laudatory reviews of the tours which people took with Mauricio and was sure this was a great company. While I believe that MAY be the case IF you are fortunate enough to actually have Mauricio as a guide, the level of competence that he is credited with DOES NOT extend beyond him. We arrived in Iquique... More

This is an opinion, completely out of place and with very bad intention. We went looking for "two opportunities" to Iquique Hostel to this passenger, but he was not in the place. The first opportunity was the tour guide and driver, who waited for 15 minutes, delaying the scheduled departure and bothering other passengers waiting. The second occasion was Jose... More

Had a most wonderful day around the saltpetre mines of Santa Laurea. We saw where it all started followed by the main mining works with the museum. Out in the Atacama Desert it's no wonder the miners fought for social justice, it is a bleak and desolate place. But so fascinating to see one of the main wealth-creating industries of... More

We did the Ruta del Sol tour, yesterday. Santa Laura and Humberstone were both great places to visit. It is like a journey into the past. You see the old factory, shopping and entertainment facilities, a swimming pool and all sorts of residential buildings. Some of the structures are decaying, others have been restored.
