Tour description

 What does this tour include?
1. A visit to a very important market to see a selection of fresh Nicaraguan products that are offered in the stalls of the Markets of the city.
2. Tasting of traditional Leonese dishes in the small stalls of the historic León market.
3. Choose between enjoying a local coffee, local tea or local beer at one of our favorite places.
4. We also offer food tours for vegans or vegetarians.

The gastronomic tour will give you the opportunity to meet people, learn the history and taste a wide variety of traditional foods, fruits and snacks as well as meet local vendors, find out more about the history of the place and some stories from the local vendors.

Join us on The Original Traditional Food Tour for the best gastronomic experience in la ciudad universitaria in the historical center of León.

Keep two things in mind:
1. Food is not included and has an approximate cost of  C$250.00 /USD6.80  per person. 
2. The minimum amount to operate the tour is three (03) participants.
(In case only two (2) participants want to do the tour, then the contribution for the food would be C$300.00 / USD8.13 per person. 

When the group gets bigger than four (4) participants, then the contribution for food per person goes down by C$50 Cordobas.)

We had such a great tour with Henry. He was friendly and talkative, informative and his English is perfect, such a nice guy. We went into the food market and tried things that we never would have otherwise. Highly recommend.
