I thought the tour was very well done. Everything was well organized and proceeded as planned. I liked the horseback ride, the gaucho performance the best, although the dancing was excellent too. Plenty of wine and food.
My friend and I had a fantastic day! We were worried it might be a bit cheesy and boring when we got there but it was an absolute blast. Full credit to all the team at Don Silvano Ranch. The grounds are wonderfully taken care off, the horse show is interesting, the food is tasty and the singer and dancers are thoroughly entertaining. I would highly recommend this day trip to people of all ages, from everywhere. Thank you for the great memories!
We were picked up from our hotel and transported to the Ranch by small bus/coach. Our guide was great and told us about the areas we drove though. The Ranch was fun, the food was great and the wine never stopped. The gauchos put on a great show as do the dancers during lunch. As we drove back into town our guide continued to tell us more about the city and she pointed out more interesting sights. Don't miss this tour.
Very good tour!! Lots of food from empanadas, parrilladas, salads and everything you would want to drink!! Horse ride could have been a little longer but overall it was a great experience!!
A good experience, we enjoyed the show and the food. We rode horses but would have enjoyed a little more time for that. Our guide's English was not to good but she was very helpful in everyway.
My sister and I booked a trip to the Santa Susana Ranch on the web, not knowing exactly how it would turn out. Everything was great from the moment we were picked up near our hotel in Buenos Aires to the arrival at the Ranch, great set up. We had a short ride, then a delicious BBQ and some Tango and local singing. After which we watched the gauchos round up the horses. It was a memorable day and well worth the money.
A good experience. My mini tour bus included people from many parts of Latin America, so that was good. Good food, fun horse ride and great gaucho and tango displays.
We had a great day out in the sunshine. Food was excellent, wine flowed, great show and the staff were very friendly and helpfull.
The Fiesta Gaucha vas really good. The bus couldn't pick-up us at our hotel, but we still managed to meet at the place requested. The guide was really nice, courteous and knowledgeable. As soon we got there, we were greeted with empanadas and wine. We were able to visit around the gift shop and have a relax time. Later everybody were called to sit and have lunch, entertained by a short show with tango, gaucho dance and few other typical songs.
It was a generally enjoyable day although it did feel just a bit too " touristy " although tourists of course we were. It got off to a bad start with our pick up being 30 minutes late and no semblance of an apology. But all in all it was quite a fun thing to do on our last day in Buenos Aires.
Costwise it was allegedly a special offer but I could have bought it cheaper in BA.
Despite a surprisingly good meal and entertaining afternoon, I would rate this trip as very poor. The reason is that, having been picked up at our downtown BA hotel at 9:30 in the morning and arriving at the Ranch about one hour later, the time between arrival and lunch (served at 2:00) was boring and wasted. The "museum" is a joke; buggy rides for adults! horse rides around the circle; and hanging around until other tour groups joined. This would have been a fine lunch and afternoon activity. But to trap four adults for nearly four hours in the morning was a terrible waste of vacation time.
We were picked up at our hotel at 9:30am. We arrived at the Ranch approximately 10:30 and that is when the problem began. When we asked what was to happen next,we were told to look at the house and you are on your own. After a visit to the home which lasted approximately 15 minutes, we then had to wait almost 2 hours with nothing to do. On your own with nothing to do is not what we expected or paid money. The vast majority of people arrived around noon or later. We were the first people there at 10:30. This, we found frustrating and annoying. It would have been much better to be picked up at 11:00 or 11:30. Like many tourists with limited vacation time, we could have used this time much more effectively. We enjoyed the lunch, show and skills exhibition. However, our unnecessary early arrival negatively impacted our experience. Bottomline, the scheduling was bad! I would not recommend your tour unless the pickup was changed to be more reflective of the timeline for the activities.
This day tour is a must to experience life on an Argentinian ranch! The meal and show (singing, dancing and tango as we enjoyed our meal) was a highlight but the welcoming empanada and red wine, the horse ride, the leisurely walk around the farm, drinking mate, watching in the kitchen as the staff explained the making of empanadas, to the riding exhibition that concluded the day meant that there was lots to see, do and experience and it gave you a real taste of rural life in bygone days on the pampas. We were particularly impressed that the staff always spoke to us in English even thought the vast majority of the guests were Spanish speaking. Great value for money and thoroughly enjoyable!
This was a fun and varied way to experience the Ranch--a good museum on the property, a chance to ride, a great lunch, and fabulous gaucho display to wrap it up. The guide was pretty enaging en-route too. The only hitch was the pick up was almost 90-minutes late. As we waited for our hotel pick-up..and called..and waited..and called again (or the hotel stuff did on our behalf)--it was difficult to get a clear reason why the delay or how long it would be....The "10 or 15 minutes" way was always the answer. It turns out it was a combination of demonstrations and traffic, so they just needed better communication between the bus and also with us. However, once that was cleared up--we were on our way for a really fun day with the Gauchos!
