English Language Tours of Asturias

From Eating Asturias, the Encyclopedia of Asturian Gastronomy

Want to get up close and personal with Asturian food and cider culture? Want to eat and drink your way though the lushest, greenest landscapes in Spain? Ready to break away from the typical tourist trail and experience things a little closer to the ground? I provide English tours of Asturias for very reasonable prices.

I provide services for culturally curious travelers who want to explore Asturias in English. There are a wealth of interesting things to see and do in Asturias. However, given that 90% or more of visitors to Asturias are Spanish, there is precious little infrastructure to help the English-speaking tourist. That’s where I come in.

When you are planning your trip to Asturias, it is important to know what to expect. I’ve built this whole website to give you access to information about the gastronomy and culture of Asturias in English. I can continue to help by providing an English speaking companion on your visits to the places and parts of Asturias that would be impenetrable to those who don’t speak Spanish (or Asturianu, or Eo-Naviego…)

Meaningful Experiences

Travel can, and should, be a force for good. Away from home, far from our comfort zones, we can learn new things, not just about the place we are visiting, but about ourselves. You should go home from your travels with a sense of accomplishment, and a sense of having been changed by your experiences. The best way to do this is to dig deeply into the fabric of the place you visit.

Cultural Relevance

Too much tourism is a checklist of museums, sights, and manufactured gift shop experiences. Gone is the sense of discovery, of connection, of relevance. I am to bring that back to our experiences. It’s the whole reason I have this website – to show you a side of Spain beyond the tourist brochures. To visit Asturias in a very real way. To avoid a superficial visit where you only see a place and instead to really experience it. That is most easily done with a local guide and cultural interpreter.

Gastronomy Centered

I am a firm believer that food is best ambassador. Being curious about local food and willing to try new things is one of the best ways to connect our lived experiences to another persons. Over a shared table we can learn about, and from, each other. People in Asturias are very proud of their food and drink and I want to help you experience that without a language barrier. All of my English tours of Asturias are gastronomy focused for this reason.
