Wow, wow, wow!! We planned a trip to a resort but wanted to do some stuff in Managua and Granada before heading to San Juan del Sur and Tierra Tours was AMAZING!

I emailed and asked them to pick up my family at the Managua airport (around noon), take us somewhere yummy for lunch, show us some of Managua, and get us to Grenada by bedtime. Our driver, Bernardo was waiting with our name on a sign, a comfortable van with air conditioning and with little more than the instructions I just said, he took us to some great places. The Sandino monument, the National cathedral, the Palace/museum, a wonderful lunch place, etc. He had just a little English and we have just a little Spanish, but it was just what we wanted. Some places he said we could take our stuff and other places he said, "leave your cameras in the van and take a little $$ in your pocket." He would stay with the van so we could explore without risking theft. HE was WONDERFUL! Careful driving in what was a crazy driving environment!

The next day, Tierra picked us up at our hotel and we did the Mombacho Express and Isletas tour. Agai, air-conditioned van, picked up right at the hotel. WONDERFUL! Bernardo drove and Gustavo (who had more English) led us. He knows everything about that volcano, coffee plantation, bird, flower, and animal!! These were amazing tours. Easily the highlight of our trip to Nicaragua.

On the volcano we saw orchids, all kinds of birds, a sloth!!, steaming vents, vultures, monkeys. It was wonderful. The coffee plantation is a fun stop. On the isletas we saw egrets, monkeys, lilipads, oriels, just amazing. These guys were professional, on-time, reasonably priced (for our family of 4, the Managua day was $120 (plus lunch and admission to museum), and the next day was $180 for the 4 of us (for both the Mombacho volcano and Isletas -- kids were less than adults).

I could not say enough wonderful things about this company. They are pros.

Took a day tour with them recently in Granada and had a tour guide named Eduardo. He was awesome. Extremely bright and fluent in English. A perfect guide, not too talkative but entertaining and informative. Ask for him!

My sister and some friends took a trip to Cerro Negro in December last year with Tierra Tour Leon and it was a blast!! the organization was perfect from head to toe! David, was really helpful and very charismatic, the bus was good and our guide Hector was excellent. He gave us some really good information and kept helping us all the time with our boards. The trip was fantastic and I highly recommend them! when booking with them always ask for David or Roger and request Hector as your guide.

We used Tierra for some guided tours and shuttles between Leon and Granada and Ometepe. The service was great - on time, good buses with ac and nice guides. Very helpful staff in the office too.

My friend and I took the kayak tour of las isletas - the tour itself was beautiful but none of the guides spoke English even though the tour was advertised with one. When we booked, the office also said we would have a dry bag but what was provided was like a small sleeping bag cover - water resistant and just cinched at the top. Probably not the best for a smart phone, and definitely not a waterproof dry bag.

When we got back to the office, I complained about the guides since we actually wanted to learn while on the tour. Tierra tours contacted the company and they lied and said the English speaking guide hurt his shoulder and had to go back with the shorter kayak tour. This was a flat out lie because I asked when we got there and neither guide spoke English.

Just be careful when you book.
