Great and detailed tour
Mar 2020 • Solo
Our guides took us through the market and we ate many different types of local fruits, drinks, and hot street food. Carlos even brought a knife and chopping board set so we can cut fruit effectively. When I expressed a desire to try out the nacatamale, they went to get it for me To try. Despite me only being the only one on the tour, both the tour guides were patient and good with English.

Highlight of our León trip
Feb 2020 • Friends
We took Memo and Ye’s tour with our large extended family and it was a highlight of our trip. Our guides were very knowledgeable, the tour was thoughtfully organized, and we got to try so many things that none of us had had before (even having previously spent time in Nicaragua). The market in León is a showpiece of a Nicaraguan market (cleaner and wider aisles than in Granada; much larger than SJDS), and it was very helpful to have someone explain what the things we didn’t know were and how things are usually eaten or prepared. Everyone in our group had different favourites out of what we tried (fruits, drinks, savoury prepared dishes) and our guides answered all our questions (there were many as we were a group of 6). We also appreciated that our guides came with us to the grocery store after the tour to help us find packaged and labelled versions of some of what we’d seen in the market (pinolillo!) that we could take it with us through customs when we went home to Canada. Fabulous tour, really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Memo and Ye!

Nicaraguan food tour
We heard of this food tour by one of the guides from the Volcano tour we did. We really enjoyed it and tasted all different kinds of typical Nicaraguan fruits, dishes and drinks. The guide, Memo, took us to a local market and it was really nice. He knows the people’s and the food very well and let us taste all kind of things. We did it on a Saturday because then there are more kinds of fruit and dishes available on the market. It was a very nice way to get to know the city of Leon and its food secrets.

Amazing Local Food Tour
Jan 2020 • Friends
This was one of the best food tours we've been on, we were able to sample many different types of local foods that were all amazing! Earlier that day before the tour my friend and I had difficulty navigating the local markets by ourselves and found it to be intimidating, however, with Yesenia's help we were able to try out so many new and delicious things we wouldn't have thought to ask for! Overall amazing tour and would recommend!

An amazing food tour with an amazing guide!
Nov 2019
We went in Nicaragua at the end of October for a great 6 weeks. We arrived in Leon, it was our 3th day in Nicaragua. We had only few words of Spanish. We were decided we would learn a lot about the culture, the people, the land. Just before going on the Volcano tour we were approached to do this tour. We had no hesitation.

9h00 am the next morning we were ready to go for our food tour! It was amazing. We tasted some fruits we had no clue about, tasted amazing drinks, learn about some of the culture of the people which is great. Went in parts of the market we would not have gone without a guide. Tasted food we would not have tasted also.

This is absolutely a tour we recommend to everyone going to Leon. A must! Good luck you both in your business. Wishing you tones of success!

Eye opener!
Jan 2020 • Solo
I was in Nicaragua for 4 weeks before I did this tour and from the dozen of things we've tried I only knew two. I've discovered so many things in those two hours and now I can enjoy them on my own and share it with others.
Just do it!

Great guide, great tour, great food. We can highly recommend it! We tried many fruits and drinks and also special dishes. Even though we walked the market before Memo still surprised us with things the market offers you would never think of

My girlfriend and I chose this tour because we couldnt do a cooking class on short notice. But maybe this was a blessing in disguise, because this tour was a pleasant surprise! Memo and his girlfriend are really friendly and passionate about the food and the market. The tour in itself had a good buildup from fruits to drinks and even hot meals at the end. We were lucky to do this tour on friday so we could try the Nicaraguan specialty 'nacatamale', really delicous. Also we descovered a new favorite drink, a milky cold brew known as 'semilla de jicarro'.
