We went on a birdwatching tour outside Matagalpa and had a great time with our guide,even though we did not see all we wished to see... but that's part of birding, it's no one's fault! Service was also excellent at the office and in the van. We find however that on a general note, the price was a little steep... More

I agree with another recent reviewer 'I don't do tours'. Visions of coach loads of people marching around. Also seemed pricey. So not the case on either count. This was just wonderful. In fact it was just me and the driver (who was excellent) and the wonderful guide Noela (but I am sure I spelt it wrong as she has... More

We traveled throughout much of Central and Western Nicaragua all with Matagalpa Tours. Our experience could not have been any better and it was all thanks to them. They are all extremely friendly people and they are also passionate and knowledgeable about all of Nicaragua. They brought us to several scenic views, amazing resorts, and delicious places to eat. We... More

Wow, this is the best tour we have taken on our trip through Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We met our guide, Daniel, at 9:00 am. and set off to visit a coffee plantation, learn about sustainable farming, have lunch with a local family and hike to two waterfalls. The scenery was stunning! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke in... More

For too long, I was one of those travelers who considered tours for "tourists"--not for "real travelers" like me. This experience totally changed my stubborn ways and made me realize that when done right, tours can offer access and understanding that you could never get on your own. We did a full day coffee farm tour with a hike and... More

We are very experienced "independent" travelers and have used quite a few local tour companies over the years. Matagalpa Tours provided us with an excellent experience, which started from our first communication with Ernesto. Our group of 6 was 3 generations (ages 71 to 7) and widely varying interests and physical abilities. We went with a 4 day/3 night coffee... More

As others have noted, my wife and I had an amazing, very educational "chocolate tour" with Jose. It was a bargain and much more than we expected -- with a memorable lunch at a private home, a fantastic hike in a shade-grown coffee plantation and topped off with short trip to a stunning waterfall resort, all after seeing and learning...

Been to a local farm, told me all about coffee/Rice/fruit/way of planting. Got to try different food. Had lunch with a family, did a hike and got to know lots of legends, saw monkeys, saw slots, jumped off rocks and liked swimming at the waterfall! Guides live there and know a lot! We were only 3 so you don't feel... More

My husband fell on a hike and was unable to continue with our hiking plans. Matagalpa Tours responded immediately with a new itinerary which better met our immediate needs. The company had to make a number of changes, hotels, guides, etc, which they graciously took care of. I felt we were always in expert hands .
