“Best Day in Nicaragua”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

We arrived in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua on November 20th 2012 on the Island Princess ship. As prearranged Ramon and his driver were waiting for us. We talked about options for the day and had a full day of fun adventures. We took a boat tour and saw many colorful houses on little islands. We made a stop to see Monkey island too. We visited the active Volcano and had lunch at a great restaurant with a spectacular view, by the Volcano. We visited many Granada sites.
Great guide we highly recommend Ramon. He goes the extra mile to make sure your tour is exactly what you want. He knows where to take you to see the real Nicaragua. Ramon is fluent in English, and a delightful person, super friendly. We were so happy with our tour of Nicaragua with Ramon.

“Cherry on the top :)”
Reviewed 30 November 2012

What to say after so many excellent comments and not to repeat what has been said. Meeting Ramon was the highlight of our trip and we are so glad we hired him to be our personal tour guide. Not only was he accommodating to all our wishes, but he went above and beyond to show us as much as possible and get our moneys worth. We also hired his great driver Job for transportation to our next destination and then back to the airport. Don't hesitate, arrange all your tours with RAMON!
P.S. Thank you for a beautiful bouquet :)

“Perfect day in Nicaragua thanks to Ramon!”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

We booked Ramon for a full day tour (Granada, Masaya, Catarina lookout, pottery town) and we sure are happy that we did! He is the best tour guide one can wish for: very knowledgable about Nicaraguan history & culture, fluent in English, flexible, friendly, attentive and truly interested in making the best out of your tour. We are well traveled and have used many private guides before, and Ramon surely belongs to the very best. We would highly recommend Ramon to anyone for a great tour around Nicaragua!

“Great tour, great guide, and good value.”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

Just returned from an all day tour with Ramon. Our group comprised 14 people. Ramon had already told us the typical itinerary but was very flexible, adapting the tour to our wishes. The tour was varied, informative, and, as the name suggests, not rushed. We were glad we took the tour and I would recommend using No Rush Tours if you are in Granada.

“Find him, he's great!”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

I saw so many nice postings about Ramon that I had to find him. He is really just a one man show with several connections and helpers. I couldn't locate a website (he doesn't have one), so we asked our hotel to contact him by phone, so he could meet us at the hotel on the evening we arrived, to set up a tour for the following day. That worked out great. We had him all to ourselves for a city tour by horse and carriage, zip line tour, Lake Apoyo for lunch and sunset boating on the lake to Las Isletas. He spent a full 10 hours with us and we saw it all! He will adjust his schedule to whatever you want to do, how much or how little, fast paced or slow. A real great guy, nice and personable. We could not have asked for a better time.
