I went on a study tour with Bridgewater State University in January 2014. Our school always uses this company and has had Freddy as a tour guide for several years. I would highly recommend using this company and I cannot speak highly enough about Freddy. He is such a genuinely nice person and cares about the needs of the whole group. He knows so much about Nicaragua and his English is great so it was easy to communicate with him. It was also helpful to have him along to translate for our group. We spent our trip visiting various coffee plantations, hiking, and sight-seeing. We even got to sled down an active volcano - definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I am so glad I spent my winter break in such an incredible place and I cannot wait to plan a trip back.
