My husband and I had a wonderful day getting to see and learn about Nicaragua with Julio and his company. The ride in to and from Leon was comfortable and informative. We really enjoyed seeing the countryside, how people get around and a variety of living situations. Julio himself is an amazing fountain of information and very personable. His English and that of the guide was fantastic so communication was never a problem. We enjoyed time at the central market and the art museum (which is housed in a series of traditional colonial homes that are as variety and interesting as the art itself) and a good, traditional lunch at a neighborhood restaurant. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience in Nicaragua. We highly recommend Julio Tours.

You can tell Julio is an experienced tour operator, communication by email was easy, we were greeted right at the port gate by name, and began our tour in a clean, air conditioned vehicle. It only got better from there! Our day included a drive to Leon while Julio described the country around us with interesting facts about life in Nicaragua. In the city, we toured the Cathedral and the Ortiz-Gurdian Art Gallery. We could tell both places have deep meaning to Julio by his personal descriptions of the interiors and artwork. We enjoyed walking in the city, especially through the large, very interesting and lively market. We had a great lunch at a local restaurant with our choice of meat and drink to go along with rice and beans. It was a wonderful tour, Julio made it special with his knowledge of Nicaraguan life and history. You can tell he loves his family, friends, and his country. We highly recommend Julio Tours.

We booked this tour independently before our cruise while talking with some other Cruise Critic members. They accepted cash in US dollars on the same day of the tour and offered a price reduction when more people booked. The company was very easy to contact and responded quickly to e-mails. This was still a small group (maybe a dozen people or so) in a mini-van. We walked out of the port gate and found Julio and our guide, Ryyder waiting for us with clearly marked signs. (By the way, the people of Corinto gave our cruise ship one of the most warm welcomes, with music and dancing and small children dressed in traditional clothing giving us gift bags with maps and stickers as we got off of the ship.) The drive to the beautiful city of Leon was about an hour and was very interesting. There were horse drawn carts, bicycles, scooters, cars, and semi-trucks all using the same road-- it was like an obstacle course. There was an obvious police/security presence as well. We had a great driver and as mentioned a very kind, well educated, informative guide, named Ryyder. We visited an open air market; a beautiful cathedral (with some free time around the square) and Leon city art gallery. There were several street vendors, so bring some extra cash if you want a souvenir. We were treated to a lunch with rice, beans, choice of meat (pork, beef or chicken) and a drink. This was all included in the price of the tour. On our return trip, we learned a lot about the history, the landscape and the industry of Nicaragua. We even got a chance to stop and take pictures of the volcanoes and learn about a sesame seed field--very interesting. Great day!!

Our sincerest thank you for a fantastic tour of Leon. Such a wonderful region with amazing people. A country with such beauty, rich resources and great potential! Not enough time to absorb it all. Gave each of us a love for the country and people. Thank you for keeping in touch with us, having the nice greeting at the dock with our names, a great vehicle and driver. Everything as you promised and more (like a great lunch!) Our tour guide, Rydder was superb. Professional, friendly, very knowledgable and very proud of his country. The entire team was terrific. A special thanks to Julio Tours, Highly Recommend!
