Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Santa Susana Ranch. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The ranch is just lovely and the people are awesome! They are very welcoming and great fun. We had a really nice day going horseback riding (the horses were quite tame) then enjoyed some of the best asado we've had during our stay in Argentina (the best is served last) l. The show that followed was quite jaw dropping, the dances and the gaucho show in particular were just amazing. At the end of the gaucho show we actually got to go horseback riding with some of the gauchos and that in itself was just an amazing experience.
We didn't get to go to the museum as we decided to go horseback riding twice but you have several options until lunch is served.
Also before we got to the ranch we had an unknown detour where we dropped some people off at the zoo so you might want to check after you book how your itinerary actually looks like and how much time you'll get to spend at the ranch so you are able to plan accordingly.
On the way to the ranch we learned some great stuff about Argentina, the gauchos and mate. I recommend spending time with the gauchos as they were just amazing people.
Overall it's a must do and I don't think you would regret it. I would do it again :)
Great day! Loved being able to ride horses, have a wagon ride, enjoy an authentic Brazilian meal, watch some tango and salsa dancing along with the dance with the rope and ball, and most of all seeing the horsemanship skills the gauchos had. I would highly recommend this trip.
We had a wonderful time at Santa Susana Ranch - the people, the horses, and the food -- all fantastic!.
It was a wonderful experience. The drive was very relaxing with much to see along the way, the ranch was a very pretty and well-kept place, the food was excellent and the performance superlative. I just wish the English-speaking guide, who was quite pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful, had spent more time speaking in English.
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.
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.
Great day out in the pampas with the gauchos, really nice activities and food.
Another great tour, first time on a horse in 50 years for both my husband and I. Great lunch and entertainment. The food was wonderful. And a great tango show.
A very fun day with a tour guide full of interesting tidbits and a lot of knowledge of his subject.
The food was fantastic.
I booked this trip after seeing it recommended by someone else on the Internet. I'm so glad I did. A coach journey of about an hour into the countryside. On arrival we were given delicious Empenadas and choice of drink. Free time to ride on the horses or horse and cart. A it was nearing the end of the season the tour wasn't full so everyone had chance to do both if they wanted to. There was also the old ranch house to explore. Then it was time for lunch. Beef, chicken, sausages etc all cooked over a wood fire. Plenty of salads, bowls replaced as soon as they were empty. Drinks flowed, delicious Argentinian Malbec wine, beer and soft drinks. Dessert and coffe served, it ws time for the entertainment. Two men, one on guitar one on squeeze box, then a Tango demonstration and then everyone danced. Next we were all back outside to watch the Gauchos give their demonstration. A bit dusty, but a good time was had by all. It was an excellent day and I would thoroughly recommend the trip.
Excellent tour, and a lot of fun. If you left hungry, it was your own fault. Tourguide was excellent, and was reasonably fluent in English
Pefect day from pick up to drop off. The ranch and food were great!
Great fun! Sol, our guide was timely, informative and very helpful. The bus was comfy, food was tasty, fun show, nice horse ride and display. Definitely worth leaving BA for. Countryside is quiet and pretty. We really enjoyed it!
this was our best trip, the place was excellent, the food, the wine, the show, the entertainment, all were outstanding, here is the negative, the pick up was about one hour late, very bad, they could have called to say that they were running rate, overall, I would definetly this trip to everyone.
