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.

Llanes es precioso. Ribadesella es bonito .A la escalera para subir a la ermita le deberían poner una baranda para que pudieran subir bien personas mayores o con sobrepeso. Santillana del Mar está bien. La guía que tuvimos hablaba en exceso.No eran necesarios tantos detalles.Es imposible recordarlo todo.
