The tour started with a visit to a cheese production center and then we made our way though the town (population 80) on the way to a cave where Cabrales cheese was being made. During the walk to the cave we stopped frequently and learned about the history of land use in the region. This part was really interesting because... More

The tour of Asiego and the Asturian countryside was beautiful and instructive. We found out not only how artisan Cabrales cheese and sidra (cider) is made but at the same time learned about customs, history, social structure of the area. The guide, Manolo, was very knowledgeable. The tour and the dinner afterwards were certainly worth the price of 22 euros.... More

Fantastic tour of Asiego and a real Asturian experience. The family run business is a treat to experience. Wear comfortable shoes. The meal was great and their cider fascinating. Definitely worth the 22€ per person. I highly recommend it for everyone young and old. Kids under 5 are free.

Ok, we were not waiting that much, so our expectations weren't high, but the explanations, the friendly service, the AMAZING landscape, good food for dinner and, above all, the cabrales cheese with cider... Great experience, we loved! Call first to book, kids allowed and be there on time! Once in Asturias, you should not miss it!

A real taste of Rural Spain and the customs of the Asturian province - a guided tour of a quaint village taking in the history of the production of the famous 'Queso de Cabrales' - the goat cheese, and also an opportunity to sample the home-made cider. A real experience of an age-old tradition. in addition the small homely restaurant... More

If you are on a pilgrimage to Asturias (like me) for your love of the Sidra and the Cabrales then this cider and cheese tour of the small hilltop village of Asiegu is the perfect opportunity to indulge your religion, if only for the banquet at the end of the tour. If you've never tasted Asturian fayre, then this is... More

Wonderful guide who took into account all age ranges and made it interesting for all. fantastic cheese and cider with a really good look into all aspects of Asturian life and culture. Only thing to bear in mind is you have to pay cash - no credit cards accepted and no ATM in village.

Nice tour in a small village. In two hours you will learn how the cheese is made and visit the cave where the cheeses are ripened. After the tour a traditional Asturian meal in the cider factory. Tour and meal will take 4-5 hours! If you don't like blue cheese perhaps you should choose another attraction.

We went here as a group of four, we were staying nearby, and as we all love blue cheese we thought we'd give this a try. The village is up high and has amazing views, we were lucky to go just as the sun was settting, which was stunning! There are two brothers who run this blue cheese and cider... More
