We kept to the itinerary as described in the advertisement. The hospitality and food at the ranch were excellent. The group was very international, and we enjoyed conversing with each other. Riding horses, watching and participating in the dances, and observing the horse being "tamed" made the experience special.

Marcelo,our guide demonstrated a concise and clear understanding of the history of Buenos Aires as well as its flora and fauna. During our visit to San Antonio Areco and El Ombo Estancia he was greeted warmly by all artisans of San Antonio and staff of El Ombo. This strength added a richness to our experience. The food at El Ombo is excellent and served with grace. Marcelo is a very careful driver his car is well maintained. He listens well to your questions and is interested in your point of view.

We were picked up on time and everything explained clearly. The weather was beautiful for our horse ride, followed by a delicious and filling barbecue banquet and entertaining display of traditional music, dancing and "horse whispering". The little boy of about 3 years old was a natural entertainer.

Booked this tour which initially seemed expensive and were positively surprised. Marcelo has guided us the whole day, gave us insights, background information and shared views on how life on an estancia is nowadays. Perfect.

Great day out with Rosa, van was very comfortable, lots of information. As we headed to San Antonio, the silver museum stop was brief but interesting. The highlight was definitely the Estancia, the horse ride was pretty sedate, the lunch was fantastic and the time chilling out at the Estancia was great for our group. The food was delish, the wine was flowing and the dancing was a lot of fun - we would recommend doing this tour!

Our guide made the trip most enjoyable. Her name is Aime with an accent on the e, pronounced "eye-MAY". She explained everything about the mate and also the gaucho culture. If you go to Argentina, don't just stay in BA, get out into the countryside. This tour also included lunch and what a lunch. The BBQ meat just kept coming. If you like meat, you gonna love this tour. The music, the dancing, the horses, all good.

Small group of “10” , one hour looking the team all around Buenos Aires. The food services was so slow that I refused to continue waiting and abandoned the table. No water offered during the trip and the air conditioner of the bus was broken… town visit nothing to see, the farm 👎, services 👎….

Tour taken as offered from cruise line. A long ride but interesting to see the counrty side out of the city. Guide was informative. On arrival we were offered a welcome wine drink. Then we had an opportunity to ride a horse drawn wagon and/or horseback ride. Meal was traditional Asado. Meat was served on spits and was everything form excellent to overdone. Dance/gaucho show was very good.

We had a day tip that lasted from 8:30 to 6. Gus was our tour guide. We were picked up on time and gus gave a commentary a long the way. He was quite friendly with the 10 guests. The highlight was the visit to the ranch. The meal was excellent with lots and lots of food and wine.
