What people are saying about Oviedo

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.

First of all, I clearly booked an English speaking tour. It was not an English speaking tour. Initially, this made me quite upset. But the tour guide tried to help me as much as possible and it worked out well. The tour was amazing. Very beautiful. Would have liked a little more time at Covadonga. I highly recommend this tour. But it would help if you spoke Spanish.
