Great food. Don't forget to visit the small museum. Only problem was the gift shop was cash only and much of the best merchandise was over $100.
An enjoyable day. I especially enjoyed watching the Gauchos displaying their skills with horses. The meal was plentiful and the steak was the best I ate in Argentina.
We had been warned that this was a big tourist attraction with many people liekly to turn up to it, so we were very glad we were one of the first groups to arrive, so did not have to wait long for our horse ride. Others who arrived later had a very long wait. The ride was a bit disappointing as it was just a walk around one paddock and back - no trotting or faster gaits allowed. We did not take advantage of the carriage ride. The old homestead was interesting. The shop had good quality merchandise but we had not been warned there was no credit card facility so could not buy anything. The meal was very good and the music and entertainment was excellent and obviously thoroughly enjoyed by the largely Latin American crowd. The display by the gauchos was excellent. All in all a worthwhile experience, but not if you were expecting a longer horse ride.
This was a very good tour out into the country - the guide took pains to describe what we would see and do. The museum on site was extremely interesting, the horse back riding and other activities well organized, and the lunch was good. A highlight was the gaucho show. This tour is well worth doing on a visit to Buenos Aires.
We had a great day out in the sunshine. Food was excellent, wine flowed, great show and the staff were very friendly and helpfull.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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!
This ranch is totally organised for tourists, it doesn't mean it's not an enjoyable day!! Firstly it's nice to get out into the country, it's beautiful. We didn't go during peak season so the Ranch wasn't busy. The cowboys were great value and lots of fun, they really made the day and there's ample food
it was worth to do this trip, our guide was very nice and explained all very clearly, loads of wine on the day and BBQ, horse ride was amazing. and show....
The barbacue was excellent, and the overall ambiance set with the tango dancing and the gaucho serving both the food and the wine made for a most enjoyable experiance. We found the early part of the day a bit slow hense the four stars.
Consistent with what I'd read in many other reviews, we took a great deal of time picking everyone up. Once we were moving, our guide was good, the ranch is pleasant and the show was entertaining. You won't leave hungry and you'll drink enough wine to encourage a nap on the drive back to town. We also met several nice people from other parts of the world.
Very friendly and great traditional shows to watch. Food and wine was excellent.
Our family of 5 visited the ranch last week and had a great day. It is clean and well kept. The food was very good and lots of it! Our three kids ages 6, 13 and 15 all had fun riding on horses, carriage rides and having green space to run in after a few days in BA.
Great food, unlimited wine/drinks, friendly staff, awesome gaucho/tango/milango shows, and fun horseback riding (albeit very basic). Highly recommended

İt was beautifull. Our guide was fantastic. She explained everything very well. I recommend to everyone
1. Unlimited empanadas, wine and juice as a welcome and available until lunch time.
2. If you have never ridden horses, this is worth it then. If you expect to gallop around a field, not going to happen.
3. Music show ok, Guacho dancing much better.
4. Guacho horse presentation at end best part
I guess I expected to see calf roping or other things of that nature; however, I enjoyed the show at lunch. The museum was interesting. barbara
