See this beautiful tour description: "An adventure you will never forget!

Watch parrots returning to their unusual home… inside Santiago's active crater!

Take a walk into the heart of the earth through laves tube while three different species of bats fly over your head."
That was the only reason I booked that tour - and that "adventure" never happened. If I could only knew that that was a lie, I wouldn't booked a tour, you do not need it, the only thing you need is a driver to drive you to a lookout, wait for 15 minutes for you and drive you back.

Walked the streets of Granada looking for local tours. Selected Tierra as they looked the most professional. Met Gustavo who explained in detail what we should expect. We booked two tours. Gustavo led both. He was charming and knowledgeable. We would be more than happy to recommend both him and his company.

Booked the Masaya volcano night tour with Tierra Tours. They warned me in advance that it’s an hour drive, an hour wait to enter the park, and then only 15 minutes viewing time, followed by 1 hour drive back. I liked that they were honest. They also had daily kayaking trips to the Isletas. Other companies didn’t have enough participants to run the trip every day. Tour guide spoke decent English.

So for $ 35 per person you are taken by shuttle to the top of the Mombacho vulcano. It is said that the climb is around 2,5 hours and is mainly focussing on wildlife...

The driver forgot to pick us up so an additional taxi was arranged. Once we arrived 45 minutes later the guide (who spoke good English) took us around the crater.

It was a walk of 1h15m. We had bad luck with the weather but the guide told us that around the crater there is no wildlife.... To see wildlife you actually have to stay in the lowlands and not at the top of the crater.

All in all; if you like a 1 hour on a paved trail around the crater to see trees, plants and some flowers then this is your tour!

If you’d like to see actual wildlife and do some off road hiking (which was promised to us) then this is NOT the tour to book!

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.
