What To Expect

Following pickup at your Granada hotel around 9am, depart for the central square in Granada, where your guide will give you an orientation to the city and its history. Stroll through Independent Plaza and Colon Plaza to get a window into the city residents' daily lives. 

Visit the House of the 3 Worlds, a colonial historical building, then continue to the Museum of San Francisco (entrance included) to see the collection of pre-colonial indigenous art. Leave the city, bound for the nearby Masaya Volcano, where you'll visit the onsite museum and then drive up to the crater's edge. 

Stop at the local craft market to peruse the many handicrafts and maybe pick up some souvenirs before heading on to your last activity: a boat ride on Lake Nicaragua. Finish your day relaxing on a boat, feeling the cool lake breeze, and spotting wildlife on the lake's many small islands. 

Return to your hotel for drop-off at the end of your tour.

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!
