Great tour and so much culture to see in a short period of time! My tour guide was Gerald who reached out ahead of time to confirm pick-up time and location. The tour was tailor made for me to make sure all items in the tour were visited and still allow enough time for my afternoon flight. Thank you to Gerald for making sure everything was organized ahead of time and went smoothly. We visited Granada, Masaya, Catarina and lastly we made a quick stop at the Masaya National Park to get some quick pics of the Volcano crater. I highly recommend this tour because you see so much in such a short period of time and for a such a small price, great value. Lastly, on a personal note Gerald took the time to show me Cerro De Piedra a special small-scale conservation project in Masaya Nicaragua that he is working on... Thank you for the tour and thank you for the wonderful conversation!

We booked Gerald for a private all-day tour of Granada, the Islets on Lake Nicaragua and Masaya Volcano for a family of four. He was very accommodating and even came to San Juan del Sur to pick us up. We had a terrific day enjoying the sights and learning about Nicaraguan history. Gerald’s English is excellent and we enjoyed hearing about his experiences growing up in Central America. Highly recommend!

Highlights for us were holding the red-eyed tree frog, making pottery, climbing the tower at the Mercy church in Granada, and the boat tour of the islets. We enjoyed the volcano too but next time I would go at night to be able to see the lava more easily.

Gerald was an amazing tour guide. We spent one day exploring Granada, the islands, the masaya market and masaya volcano (sunset and at night).
We were able to see so many places with Gerald and he shared such interesting facts and history about everywhere we went.

We wish we had more time to spend with him and will 100% recommend him to anyone travelling to Nicaragua. He will create custom tours for you so just ask.

Thank you Gerald for such a memorable day!

I had one day to spend on mainland Nicaragua and reached out to Gerald to book a last minute tour. I had such a wonderful day, it became a highlight of my trip! Gerald was prompt and flexible, and customized the day to what I wanted to see, and he taught me a lot about the history and culture of the Nicaraguan people. We saw main sights (Granada city, Apoyo Lagoon, the Masaya Volcano at night, etc). But we also went to his conservation project to see wild monkeys, and even to a friend’s and family member’s house - a wonderful experience to meet and learn about the local people. Thank you Gerald for a great day and taste of your country!

Very highly recommend!

We spent a full day with Gerald. He was so kind and knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. We especially appreciated his flexibility. For example, he was happy to change the plan when we wanted to stay longer at the market or leave other places earlier that we felt were a bit too touristic for us.
Just tell him what you like and he’ll easily find the right trip for you. Would definitely call him again next time.

I have been traveling to many places and Gerald was very knowledgeable, ameaniable and kind to put a tour together. I highly reccomend both Duran Tours and coming to Nicaragua. There is currently negative news about the country however do not let that distract you from coming to the land of volcanoes.

Gerald Duran provided a fabulous, outstanding tour...best tour guide I ever had. Gerald is a great story teller with a terrific sense of humor. Included details of Nicaragua's fascinating history starting in 1600's. He told fun, cultural/ folklore stories of small villages. Visited unique, ecological developing location no tour bus would visit. Fun stop. Visit to active volcano was neat...told history. Great boat ride and lunch in beautful setting. HIghly recommend Gerald as a great tour guide. AAA+

We highly recommend this tour with Gerald Duran & Company. There were 8 of us for 8 hour tour to highlights of Nicaragua. My favorite parts were learning the customs & traditions of locals. Also, the boat tour on Lake Nicaragua was spectacular! Gorgeous homes built on the islands, were sights to behold. The air conditioned van was comfortable & Gerald & his driver made us feel at home. We stopped for a special lunch in Granada which was a special request of our group & the food was amazing ! When you are planning your tour for San Juan del Sur, highly recommend spending a day with Duran Tours!!

I must say Gerald was such a great tour guide. Firstly his English is perfect as he has lived for a number of years in the states. I told him exactly what I wanted to cover and he fit it all in with some extra stops (cigar factory & chocolate factory) that were wonderful. He has a luxurious SUV that has a mini fridge to keep water cool and his rates are very reasonable. He is clearly one of the most experienced tour guides in Nicaragua and I will recommend to anyone visiting for Gerald to be your go to guide. During the many hours in the car he will give you a fascinating history of the country and his own personal experiences. He is punctual and is just a pleasure to be in the company of which is important when you're in a car for 8 hours. The Granada and Masaya Volcano tour was first class - thank you Gerald
