Gerald and his driver, Byron, were excellent tour guides and ambassadors for their country and for Tours By Locals. The tour was well-paced and informative. Gerald was very attentive to the wishes and abilities of our group of six. All six of us were very thrilled with our day in Nicaragua. Thank you. Judith S
Gerald showed excellent management skills, providing a comprehensive tour yet getting us back to the ship on time. He has a vast fund of knowledge and shared it pleasantly with the participants in order to give us a picture of the culture and life in Nicaragua.
Gerald is an excellent guide. His English is exceptionally good and he is a font of information about both present day Nicaragua and its history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your visit and next time we will show you more of Nicaragua.

Five out of Five Gerald was one of the best guides we've had the pleasure spending time with. He was knowledgeable about the places he took us and made the effort of showing us some of the local lifestyle in addition to the highlights of the area. He also made the day special for my wife who was celebrating her birthday by arranging Mariachis to come where we had lunch to sing her happy birthday in their native song. Was a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Our pleasure to have you in Nicaragua. Great meeting you and your wofe two lovely friends. Kinds regards Gerald

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr.Richard Boggess for coming to Nicaragua!! Kinds regards Gerald
Our group of 8 absolutely loved our tour with Gerald! As well as showing us highlights of the area, he talked personally about his love for his country and shared with us his experiences of living there. Not only did we see the attractions, we felt we were able to experience local flavour with backroad jaunts and a neighbourhood restaurant. Thank you Gerald for our wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Nancy please come back to this country

My husband, brother and I had a great day with Gerald. Since my brother can't walk, Gerald arranged a tour that enabled us all to see the city mostly by car. He was very informative about both the city and his country, and his grasp of detail is amazing. I came away understanding so much more about Nicaragua. Gerald met us on time and was very helpful. I give him top ratings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elaine for your vist to Nicaragua and wish happy holidays !!! Gerald
Jay BoekhoffUnited States
This was a great way to see the country. We made an unplanned stop at a papaya stand and ended up getting a tour of the orchard with description of the farming methods from the owner. Gerald was very accommodating as to our interests and provided very interesting conversation about recent history and current issues. Because it was just the 6 of us we got a much better understanding of the area than the cruise sponsored excursions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your visit dear Jay ,it was a pleasure serving you as your local guide in Nicaragua with Tours By Local. Happy Easter!! Gerald
Gerald was punctual, extermely knowledgeable and flexible in tailoring the tour to our specific requests. The booking process was seamless. I can wholeheartedly recommend this company and guide to anyone travelling to Corinto on a cruise ship as you will have a personalized experience, in a smaller group at a significantly lower cost than on a cruise ship excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this wonderful review and we will with ours arms open to welcome you in the future. Kinds Regards Gerald

Gerald is an excellent guide, took our family of 6 through Leon and was very considerate of my mother who has mobility issues. His English is excellent, as is his knowledge. We did this as a shore excursion and it worked out well for us. We saw everything and got back to the ship with time to spare. My only downside is the Thermal Area we visited (I specifically requested we go). There is not much to see here, some small steam vents and a few mud pots, so my advice is to spend more time in Leon
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Robert Quist for your visit to Nicaragua!It was more than a pleasure to greet you and serve you as your local local guide. Kinds Regards Gerald

Gerald was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I and my clients really enjoyed our day with him- and learned SO much. We wanted to avoid the large tours offered by the cruise company and were able to find the perfect host and guide thru ToursByLocals! Gerald obviously loves his country, knows its history and is eager to share history, culture and life with his guests! This was the best condensed history course I have had recently! We highly recommend Gerald to anyone visiting Nicaragua!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much MaryLuo Foley here you have another friend in this part of the world. The best wishes!!
