This was a fun, relaxing day, and an enjoyable contrast to being in the city. An initial stop en route at a wonderful shop for regional products was a great place to buy very high quality gifts/souvenirs, with more choices than were available at the ranch.
The horseback ride was a simple walk around the perimeter of the ranch buildings, something anyone could participate in. The display of horsemanship after lunch was quite impressive, and also fun to watch.
As would be expected, the meal was heavy on BBQ meats; vegetarians would have to fill up on salad! All offerings were available in abundance, and with the variety available in meat, most would find plenty to satisfy.
The tango show that followed was very well done by both dancers and musicians. We left for home feeling uplifted, tired, and very full!
Nice ranch. Good to be out in the countryside. Good to see the horses. Gaucho show was good. Cantina style lunch good, plenty of food. Staff worked hard to serve. Good guitarist and Tango.
This was a fun trip. Everything was great despite the rainy weather. I would like to do over without rain so I can ride a horse. :-)
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!!
