We did several tours with Tierra - they offer a lot of variety, and I wanted to keep things simple during our time in Nicaragua. We did the Mombacho Xpress, which was fun and informative. We had booked it leaving at 12:30, but they arrived at 9:30 - surprise! Thankfully we were at our guest house and it wasn't a huge deal. TT was very apologetic.
We then had a private tour of Masaya, which was excellent.
Volcano boarding was great fun! A few things to know before you go. We had our 8 year old son with us. The board was too heavy for him to carry up the volcano, especially in the wind - my husband had to carry it. This is not a leisurely hike. You're carrying a board that essentially acts like a sail, making for some exciting moments. That said, the views were some of the most beautiful I've ever seen in my life, and our guide David was FANTASTIC. We had a great time actually sledding down, and very safe.
Our final tour was of the mangroves in Leon. The real star of this tour was our boat captain, who maneuvered us in and out of tight areas, spotted caimans in the water, etc. Our tour guide on this one was more of an escort. She was very nice, but unable to tell us anything about what we were seeing.
All in all, we were very pleased with Tierra Tours.
