Isaac was an incredible guide and the tour was amazing and we were the only ones out there which gave it an even better experience. Know you’re signing up for a trek in the jungle so be prepared with bug spray and also for swimming so dry clothes and water shoes recommended. It says 5 hours but be prepared for longer it’s worth it, the pools and waterfalls are indescribably beautiful and the scenery will leave you speechless. Once-in-lifetime experience

Anthony was a great guide. He showed the city and explained everything very well. A great person to hang out with and a great conductor. I would definitely hire more tours with him in the future when I visit Nicaragua again.

I really enjoyed my tour with Franklin! Leon city is beautiful and full of history, and this guide will explain this city in a way that will leave you admiring the city more. He was extremely knowledgeable and flexible.

Very nice kayaking tour with a knowledgeable guide. Getting up early was definitely worth it as it's less hot, there are more birds and it's nice and quiet on the water.

Eric was an excellent guide and we had a great day when he showed us the island.
