We really enjoyed the tour because it was very informative! We learned about the history of Nicaragua and Leon as well as where to find the best comedor or bus to the beach.

This combination was perfect for a walking tour. :-)

I want to highlight how dedicated and passionate our guide was. I recommend the tour as a very good opportunity to get in touch with locals, plus it's a way to support the local community by your reward.
