This tour was incredible- educational, fun, family based, with great food and drink, and a wonderful opportunity to experience a real side of Argentine life in the pampas! And the guide Pablo was simply amazing! He loves people; he loves interacting with the people on the ranch and educating. A+

This tour was fantastic!! The day at the ranch was so enjoyable and our tour guide Paoblo was knowledgeable and friendly. The horseback ride, the friendly staff, the gaucho songs and dances and especially the horse whisperer. The view of the pampas was incredible. A double thumbs up!!

We did a small group tour two of us to San Antonio de Areco and a near by ranch. Probably the best thing we did in five weeks of touring South America. It was awesome. Thank you to our guide and the company. John Forbes.

It was a wonderful day! The food was amazing, and the gauchos and servers were jovial! I am a horseback rider however, and they stuck me with an older horse who could barely move! My partner and I would have loved to gallop through the fields together, but the tour guide thought I needed a tranquil horse. I was disappointed in that part. Everything else was great! Our tour guide told us many interesting things about Argentina as we rode on the bus, and we even shared some mate!
I say don't miss this tour when in Argentina!

The trip to the Estancia Ombu - Small-Group gaucho Day at a farm in San Antonio de Areco was fabulous. Our guide met us at our hotel and drove us to the Estancia giving us a constant informative commentary of the terrain we were covering to get to San Antonio. His English was very good and as we were the only tourists with him, we had a very personal experience. The gauchos and others at the Estancia Ombu couldn't have been nicer and the food was excellent and very plentiful. The most impressive activity that day was watching one of the gauchos perform doma-india with his horse. I won't explain it but it was an amazing spectacle and one I will never forget. I highly recommend this tour over others offered to the estancias. .

Great day. Pablo was excellent guide and extremely informative. The design of the tour was great, with short visit to silver museum, and once at ranch appetizers, horseback riding or carriage rides, then lunch, dancing and Horse-whispering. Recommend highly. Well worth the 2 hour drive in the air conditioned bus to get there.
