Welcome and welcome to the ancient city of Oviedo.

Join us to discover why from the hand of illustrious and unknown characters who will guide us on a journey through its gastronomy, customs and folklore as well as its peculiar culture full of art, literature and traditions that looks to the future with a renovating impulse, without renouncing its glorious past full of myths, legends and identity.

¡Prepárate! Vas a aprender un montón de hechos e historia fascinante de Oviedo. Tuve la suerte de ser la única persona del grupo y Luís (y los otros guías que estaban para experimentar la caminata también) me atendió bien. Se puede notar y apreciar su amor y pasión por el trabajo y la ciudad y todo lo que ofrece. ¡Recomiendo esta compañía sin reservaciones!

A great introduction to the history of Oviedo. Fun and informative, just the right length of time and was very pleased it went ahead with only 3 people on the English speaking tour. We have had other walks cancelled with too few people taking it. Thank you Alicia.
