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!

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.

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!

2 hour tour with Franklyn. He is extremely knowledgable about the city and it’s history. He also took time to understand the needs of the group and ensured we went at a pace that was comfortable for all. Great experience and grateful to Franklyn for conveying the passion he has for Leon and it’s importance in Nicaraguan history.

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!

Franklin met with us to introduce Leon's rich history and culture as we walked around the town. Veteran world travelers have experienced the gamut on such tours--usually mediocre to "tours from hell." But Franklin connects well with people, passionately loves his city, and is highly intelligent and knowledgeable.

What really stands out is his ability to tell stories to make the history far more interesting than more common lecture styles. Our group was primarily from the U.K. so he talked fluently in English, but any Spanish speaking groups will certainly benefit from his pri.ary language.

I've participated with many similar tours worldwide, but this ranks among the best and most memorable.

Franklin is amazing! We went volcano boarding and then went on a private tour of León. He gave us a ton of history as we chatted in the car and on the tour while ensuring to get amazing photos and videos of us. He also was kind enough to find a restaurant that met my dietary needs (vegetarian). It is clear he has a true passion for what he does and for Nicaragua. I highly suggest booking with him! Thank you so much Franklin! We will see you again soon!
