Full description
The guided tour of Ribadesella will take us to many of its most typical and emblematic buildings. We will visit its historic center and also the Portiellu neighborhood, to better understand the history and tradition of this Asturian town. One of the most characteristic and beautiful things are its picturesque streets, where, scattered around, some of the houses and palaces appear that have gradually become a must-see. Thus, the Palace of Pietro Cutre stands out, a jewel of the Asturian Renaissance, the Casa Ardines, or the Palacio de la Atalaya, in the square of the same name. One of the things that we have to see in Ribadesella, yes or yes, is its Hermitage of the Guide, where the patron saint of sailors rests. In addition, from this place, you get some of the best views of Ribadesella and also of the Bay of Biscay. Our itinerary continues towards Llanes, about half an hour away. This is one of the most chosen summer destinations in Asturias, both for its leisure offer and for the beautiful places that can be visited here. Again following our guide we will learn more about the most important places, its Casino, its tower, from the 13th century, the Palace of the Dukes of Estrada or the Gates of Llanes. There will also be time for well-known spaces such as the “Parres Sobrino” square, which rose to fame with the movie “El Orfanato”, which was shot in Llanes. Here we can enjoy free time to continue exploring a bit on our own, or to return to the places that we liked the most. The last stop will be Santillana del Mar, one of the places that you cannot miss if you are in Cantabria. We will be able to walk quietly through its alleys to see, for example, the Town Hall, the Palace or houses as imposing as the House of the Marquis of Santillana or that of the Archduchess Margarita of Austria. During all the visits we will be assisted by the advice and recommendations of the guide, who will show us where to eat, what dishes are the most typical or what are the purchases that cannot be missed. It runs along the coast of Eastern Asturias, yes, places are usually sold out, so reserve your places now!

The tour is nice if you want to explore smaller towns you may not of had on your list to visit. The tour was all in Spanish even though there was an English option when choosing this excursion. My tour guide did try to explain a bit in English but many other guests did help translate. Overall, I thought the tour was fine for seeing new places but be aware it will only be in Spanish.

When we paid for the trip the description said it was in English or English and Spanish, however the whole thing was in Spanish. At the first opportunity (after about an hour coach drive with a constant Spanish monologue from guide with a VERY loud microphone) we told the woman that we only spoke English and didn’t understand anything. We hoped after she would then tell us a little bit about what we were seeing in English but no she only said ‘meet back here at 1pm’ and nothing about the sights she was guiding us. This was incredibly disappointing as we felt we completely wasted the day and would have a much better time doing things at our own leisure. The other review has said the same thing so please be warned if you book this it’s all in Spanish. We were able to get some money back from get your guide but we were angered to hear that when they got in touch with the guide she had said she had in fact explained things in English which is completely false.
