Leonel was the best Guru we could’ve asked for! He provided us with so much interesting facts and information about his beautiful country. You can really tell how much he loves his country and how passionate he is about it. Even though the weather sucked, he didn’t mind to walk through the rain to show us his hometown. He answered all of our questions and also gave us the opportunity to ask a true local about his country and their views and thoughts of modern topics. We absolutely loved this tour so much. We learned so much about Leon and Nicaragua and its history. Thank you so much for everything Leonel!!
