      Evening Tour
      We did the evening Tour at 7pm. So there was no market to visit... but our cool frensh guide had all the fruits and other stuff in his pokets. We took a seat at the main square had some snacks and talked a bit about nicaragua before the Tour actually started.. definitly worth the money. Would do it again!

      Great morning in the market.
      Was a great opportunity to meet with locals in the market and sample some fruit, drinks and meat. We would not have sampled so much on our own. Very enjoyable way to spend a few hours in Leon. Would highly recommend .

    Óscar was a great guide, he showed me around the market in Leon and was very knowledgeable about the food as well as the city itself. He also gave me some nice recommendations of other things to do in the city. I’d definitely recommend this tour!

    Great guide, great tour, great food. We can highly recommend it! We tried many fruits and drinks and also special dishes. Even though we walked the market before Memo still surprised us with things the market offers you would never think of

    Very good experience. We were the only two in this tour :). Could try different fruits, sweets, one drink and one typical meal.
    Oscar is the best guide with very good english knowledge and also very good german! Very sympathic and he did it really good.
    We highly recommend this tour, because you come to try things you would not buy if you don't know it. It is totally worth it :)

    The guide speaks well in English and he's able too speak some other languages too. He knows a lot of things. So, at the same time that we ate a lot of delicious food, we were learning about history of Nicaragua. You should do it, it was perfect!

    We went in Nicaragua at the end of October for a great 6 weeks. We arrived in Leon, it was our 3th day in Nicaragua. We had only few words of Spanish. We were decided we would learn a lot about the culture, the people, the land. Just before going on the Volcano tour we were approached to do this tour. We had no hesitation.

    9h00 am the next morning we were ready to go for our food tour! It was amazing. We tasted some fruits we had no clue about, tasted amazing drinks, learn about some of the culture of the people which is great. Went in parts of the market we would not have gone without a guide. Tasted food we would not have tasted also.

    This is absolutely a tour we recommend to everyone going to Leon. A must! Good luck you both in your business. Wishing you tones of success!

    So pleased I clicked onto Trip Advisor and found this food tour.
    Oscar is delightful, so knowledgeable about all aspects Nicaragua.
    We wondered through the market trying different fruits, then tried one of the National dishes, followed by different drinks, one was called Jicaro which was delicious and we were assured very healthy.
    We finished with some sweet treats.
    Oscar is a great Ambassador for this country.

    We heard of this food tour by one of the guides from the Volcano tour we did. We really enjoyed it and tasted all different kinds of typical Nicaraguan fruits, dishes and drinks. The guide, Memo, took us to a local market and it was really nice. He knows the people’s and the food very well and let us taste all kind of things. We did it on a Saturday because then there are more kinds of fruit and dishes available on the market. It was a very nice way to get to know the city of Leon and its food secrets.

    Our guide Oscar was excellent. His historical knowledge was matched by his gastronomic tour. He was thorough, and was expecting more questions from us. I explained to him that i live in San Juan del Sur, and that we visited the area last year. Eventhough we had that prior experience, the food tour was worth it as i tried a variety of new foods.

    The food tour with Oscar at the local market was great! (2 hours). We enjoyed typical fruits from Nicaragua and tradtional lunch/drinks/sweets. Besides talking about the food, he also taught us a little bit about the history of León. We highly recommend the tour.

    My first day in Nicaragua and this tour was amazing! I learned about the local fruit and cuisine that tourists typically wouldn't know what to look for. Johanna was incredible and as a solo traveller I loved the experience!
