This tour was excellent! Marcelo was a very informative tour guide and took us to lots of local spots in pretty San Antonio de Areco. This is not a touristy day, it is a visit to a real Estancia. The BBQ was some of the nicest food we had in Argentina and there was no shortage of red wine. The horse ride was fun and Gaucho Oskar was fantastic!
It was fantastic! Beautiful place, peaceful, great food, horseback riding thru the pampas with real gauchos.....priceless! We liked it so much that we stayed a night!
After reading other reviews we decided to take this tour. So happy we did and I hope someone reads this review and does the same. It was the highlight of our trip!
Our guide, Florencia, was amazing! She gave so many interesting facts along the way without ever overdoing it. We definitely learned a great deal, not only about Gaucho life but about Argentina in general.
The Estancia was great, the food was very good and the activities were first rate. The Gauchos showed off their skills and it was truly amazing.
Perfect one day trip with Marcelo as guide . he made our day very special with his knowledge and gentle way if telling stories and sharing all that he new. We apriciated horse ride very much even if it was first time on a horse. Good food and plenty of gaucho culture.
An excellent antidote to the busy city. Three of us mom, dad, 21 yr daughter took the trip, which takes up the entire day. The town of San Antonio de Areco was quite charming and interesting. Marcelo, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and obviously well-respected by all of the local people we encountered. I would have enjoyed more time to be able to browse the shops. The Estancia was just lovely the luncheon was delicious and interacting with the gauchos was quite memorable. Daughter said it was cool.
Great opportunity to get outside Buenos Aires and see a working farm/ranch. Pablo was our guide. We had a small group of 6 people. In a very nice van. The drive out is about 2 hours but we stopped in San Antonio de Areco for shopping and chance for coffee. When we got to the ranch it had rained and we had to take an off-road vehicle - photo attached. We had an opportunity to tour the ranch, ride horses or carriage. Also watch the Gauchos demonstrate their training of the horses. Pablo helped make this trip special with insights into the country and culture. The entire group was excited all stated they would highly recommend the tour especially with our guide.

We wanted a gaucho and estancia experience and that's exactly what we got. The pick up was on time and the driver explained what would happen over the day. The tour guide around the town was knowledgeable and proud of it all. Lunch at the estancia was amazing, horse riding was fun and meeting one of the oldest gauchos was great. We nearly didn't do this day out but are so glad we did, one of the best things we have done in South America. Highly recommended!
Our best tour in Argentina! We loved our guide Paul and the estancia.

This was a wonderful day trip away from the busy city of Buenos Aires. What we loved most about our trip were the people we met...our knowledgeable driver Jose Maria, our charismatic guide Eugenia, as well as everyone at the Estancia Ombu. We had an exceptional time visiting the local silversmith shops, trying some of the best alfajores, and learning about the pampas as well as gaucho culture. Our last stop at the Estancia Ombu was truly an amazing experience, with great food and a relaxing horse ride. If you have a day to spare, this tour is great way to relax and take in local culture.
Generally very enjoyable and a good experience. The ranch itself was good, but not top notch however, it was acceptable and did give us a good time.
Lovely estancia providing a reasonable horse ride and a very pleasant lunch on the veranda of this beautiful house. Well worth a day in the country outside the busy city of Buenos Aries.
the pick up was on time, the experience was really nice in a beautiful estancia with great meat and long easy horse ride around 45 minutes around the property.
Unfortunately, there was no time to relax in the swimming pool - the day was sunny and warm - or just simply hanging out at the estancia because our departure back to Buenos Aires was right after lunch.
Our guide was nice, friendly and spoke good English.
The trip was definitely pricey...
