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!
Very nice, I recommend it, you do not see much of a ranch and the gauchos are just playing around for you. But the day was nice, the food and a very nice show with local musicians and dancers. Very enjoyable.
What a wonderful day! Our guide was so knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout the drive to the estancia. Once there, the gauchos and the staff couldn't have done more to make us feel at home and happy. Our guide gave us a tour (in English) of the main house, we took a wagon ride through the fields, lots people rode horses, and then we were treated to a great dinner and show. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Argentina.
Very fun day to get out of the city. Great people, Great guide and Great Food and Wine.... :-)
Excellent service, super-fun day trip. The food is average but plentiful, and definitely take advantage of the horseback riding.
Wonderful experience. Guide translated tour commentary in to English for us which was very helpful and ranch team were friendly. Vegetarian guest was catered for too which had been tricky in Argentina.
We had a great day on the ranch. Our guide Jose made the trip to the ranch enjoyable as he was very knowledgable and personable. He made sure we all got to participate in the activities. We were disappointed to miss the horse backriding before lunch so he made sure everyone who wanted to had the opportunity to ride a horse. We had lunch with people from all over the world and the food and wine were excellent. I highly recommend this trip.
Definitely worth it! Such a great trip, great vibe, great food, absolutely great music and dancing and people, and the everyone at the estancia was soo nice My only wish is that I could have eaten 15 more chorizos.
This was great, we had a great great time. Food and drinks were plentiful and we enjoyed horseback riding, even if it was just a short one. It was a great day. A must.
This was one of my favorite tours in Buenos Aires - there were so many things to do and see at the ranch! And the food and wine were excellent, as well as the dance performance!
