Amazing Custom Tours
Feb 2021
We wanted to experience as much as possible in the limited time we had in Nicaragua which is why we decided to book a tour with Vamos Travel Nicaragua. We wanted to see the country from a local’s perspective which is how we met Franklin, the owner of Vamos Travel Nicaragua
Franklin does it all! From history, transportation, photography, and friend, it was so helpful to travel through Nicaragua with a local expert! Right away we knew we made the right decision.. It was a great feeling to have someone waiting for us at the Costa Rica / Nicaragua border.

Vamos Travel Nicaragua crafts their tours to best experience the country's history, culture, and most importantly food. =) Our favorite experiences were volcano boarding, Masaya volcano and the León city tour. With more than 16 years of experience as a certified tour guide, Franklin is a walking encyclopedia of dates and did a great job of conveying the history and information in an engaging and interesting way!

Vamos Travel Nicaragua is a master at customizing his tours to each of their customers. We told Franklin the things we wanted to see and he made sure that we were able to experience them. It was very helpful with our limited time to have his honest opinion on what was worth seeing and what we could skip. We really wish that we had time to explore the beautiful country of Nicaragua, but so thankful for our incredible experience with Vamos Travel Nicaragua!

A great experience
Franklin turned out to be simply an amazing guide. Not only does he possess due to his passion for and degree in history impressive background information on Leon he is also able to make it come alive. Franklin did not mind to go far beyond time allocated for the tour as we wanted to share still more information on Leon, its history, culture, and art. I really recommend Franklin as a tour guide. It cannot get any better!

Absolutely wonderful guide
Dec 2019
Franklin was an excellent guide. It is clear how passionate he is about history and showing visitors to Nicargua around. I loved our walking tour of Leon. We saw a wide variety of aspects to the city and Franklin answered all our questions knowledgeably and honestly. An extremely personal and personable service.

Very informative - Franklin is the best tour guide
Jan 2020 • Friends
Franklin is the city guide you want. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and happy. He took time to answer our questions and showed us important places of the city. Our tour of the cathedral rooftop was a highlight. Franklin takes photos and talks about all the things one would want to know about the beautiful city and country of Nicaragua. I would recommend Franklin and his company for any experiences. Having a private tour for my friends and I was more enjoyable and allowed us to move at our own pace. Thank you Franklin!

Storytelling at its best
Dec 2019 • Solo
Franklin provides a balanced viewpoint on Nicaragua's colourful history. He'll tell you both sides so what you see in front of you can fill in any gaps. The rooftop on top of the cathedral offers a great view of all of the volcanoes surrounding Leon and great photographic opportunity. The smoothie break in the middle of the walk is also a welcome treat in the heat!

Fantastic Day!
Nov 2019
Our group of 16, ranging in age from 9 to 73, called Franklin on a Monday looking for an adventure day in Nicaragua while we were staying in Pochimil. On Wednesday, he arrived at our accommodations in a vehicle big enough and comfortable enough for all of us. He took us to Cerro Negro for some volcano boarding, which was awesome! He arranged for us to have lunch in Leon and then took us on a tour of his city visiting some of the historic, cultural, and architectural landmarks in Leon.

Franklin is so knowledgeable about Leon and Nicaraguan history and is clearly excited to share that knowledge with his guests. His delivery is very entertaining and he managed to keep all of us (even the "littles") interested throughout the day.

Franklin also went out of his way on our return to Pochimil to stop at a grocery store in Leon so we could stock up on some supplies. He was gracious, accommodating, patient, and kind. He was a great guide and just a fun guy to be around. We can't imagine that we would have had as much fun with anyone else.

Thank you, Franklin! For making our Nicaraguan adventure so memorable! Everyone should call Franklin and Vamos Travel for their own adventure. They will not be disappointed!

Fantastic walking tour
Our guide, Franklin, led us on an informative and entertaining walking tour of León, focusing on the history and culture of the area. Franklin provided context and information that wouldn’t have otherwise been available if touring this beautiful city ourselves. Thoroughly recommended.
