Gerald was like meeting an old friend ! He was very accommodating and friendly. Transportation was a very clean air conditioned car. Highly recommend this Tour if you have a short time in Granada. You see everything!!! Thanks Gerald we’ll see you soon amigo. - Ramón y Christina
We enjoyed the Granada tour. Gerald was very knowledgeable and spent time at each stop to explain its significance. We made a stop at a local non profit center to see local handicraft. We particularly enjoyed the boat ride to the islands which afforded a view of the local wildlife. The stop at the volcano included a natural history museum which Gerald guided us through. Overall, we made 12 stops and thought the time spent and site choices were well planned.
This tour has it all! City views from a church tower along with tour of a beautiful museum with detailed information on the history, people, and culture of Granada. We also visited Cafe de las Sonrisas which is a must see! Visit to the Volcano was perfect. Our guide knew the best place to stand to see the lava. The boat tour was also one of our favorites, got to see so many mini islands, nature, and native animals on our private boat. Visit to the Masaya market was amazing. We were given time to have lunch and/or shop at the market before heading back to Granada!
Couldn't have asked for a better tour. Especially if you have limited time and need to see a lot in one day, this is the tour to booK! This was certainly a personalized experience. We were given wonderful recommendations on food to try and other places to visit. This tour was put on by Duran Tours Nicaragua. Tour guide was Gerald and he was the best tour guide on our entire trip!
