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 was amazing, his tour was extensive, we saw so much. We made so many people from the cruise ship jealous after relating all we saw in the day tour. We especially enjoyed seeing the work Gerald is doing to help animals at his property. Gerald timed everything so well, less crowds and his "extras" like the view from the tower in Granada was a highlight. Our family highly recommends his Tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming to Nicaragua all the best for you. kinds regards

Gerald is a fantastic guide. He is very organized and incredibly knowledgeable. In addition, he is generous and gives his clients the best that Nicaragua has to offer. His English is great, he hires good drivers, and he knows how to avoid crowds (which is impressive when cruise ships are in port). I highly recommend him.

Que grata sorpresa descubrir la belleza de este País! Gerald estuvo a tiempo por nosotros en un vehículo en buen estado. Los puntos que recorrimos fueron muy lindos, empezando por las vistas del volcán Concepción hasta ver de cerca El cráter Santiago y poder ver la lava!!! Fue impresionante! Granada es un pueblo pintoresco y el lago Nicaragua muy lindo. Comimos delicioso a orilla del lago! Lo único que podría decir es que llegamos súper justos para tomar el tender de regreso al crucero... pero lo logramos

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias ´por visitarnos en Nicaragua y fue un placer haberle servido como su guia en Nicaragua.Su familia es super tranquila y la pasamos como en familia nosotros reindonos de los chiste y mas. Saludes a toda su linda familia! Gerald

Date: Nov 10/19

This is the best tour I've ever had. The ATV rife up to the top of the ridge was exciting and fun. We saw a sloth, a porcupine, many exotic birds, iguanas, one solo howler monkey and finished up with a large group of howler monkeys. We saw the two volcanoes on the island in Lake Nicaragua (very interesting) and had an excellent lunch in a local restaurant. Gerald was an excellent guide and was very informative for the wildlife, plants and life in Nicaragua in general.

Gerald was the perfect guide; friendly, professional and passionate about wildlife and Nicaragua. Easily contactable, excellent English and perfectly on time.

The pleaseant surprise was learning more about Nicaragua in general terms, more than I could have learnt in 20 trips on my own. I would highly recomend Gerald as a guide whatever your interests.

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

Gerald was a fantastic guide who obviously loves his country and who gave us enormous amounts of info between our various stops. The volcano was breathtaking and the city of Granada, stunning. This was a carefully arranged tour and we saw a LOT in our time there and left with a real understanding of Nicaragua past and present. Lunch was also pretty fantastic - and cheap! We would definitely recommend Gerald as a guide. Thank you!!!

Informative, personable, and knowledgeable, Gerald provided an excellent tour. He not only took us to the main sights of this area of Nicaragua but customized the tour to fit our interests, visiting places off the tourist path. We recommend Gerald highly and would certainly take another tour with him.

Our party of four had a most interesting, full-day tour with Gerald. This was our first visit to Nicaragua, and Gerald packaged our day to make the most of our limited time in port. We first stopped at a novelty/food market in Grenada, and then proceeded to visit an active volcano - what a sight looking into the depth of the crater!. This was followed by a relaxing and beautiful tour by private boat of Lake Nicaragua. A great lunch in Grenada, sampling local food topped off our day! A wonderful visit!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your visit to Nicaragua in the time that tourism bring hope back to the people.It was a pleasure to be your local guide. 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!

My tour with Gerald could not have been better. I travel a lot (more than 100 countries and about 3 months of international travel per year) and I would have to say this was one of my best trips of all time. Nicaragua is fantastic if you're a nature lover or adventurer. Gerald was extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of nature but was also a good guide for the historic tours of the colonial cities of Leon and Granada. His English is flawless and he is also very enjoyable to travel with.

Great tour with our friendly and kind guide, Gerald. He was very knowledgeable and very eager to show us the beautiful landscape as well as the highlights of Managua, Granada and San Juan del Sur. We saw places that we would not have seen had we not have Gerald with us as our guide. He was also very anxious to share the culture of Nicaragua with us. At the end of our tour, he took us to his new open-air cafe to have some local lunch. Thank you Gerald for the wonderful lunch and for a great day.

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
