The day was wonderful. Touristy, of course, but authentic. We were really just a few travelers. Our tour guide Nico made the day a joy. The farm owners gave us the impression of being part of the family - the Ranch El Ombo was just a dream. Horseback riding, lots of flat land, cattle, birds, BBQ, dancing... just how you imagine the Pampas to be. If you don't drive across by yourself and don't have much time, the trip is highly recommended.

We were picked up at the hotel on time, the tour guide informed us about sights and parts of the city on the bus on the way to the ranch, and answered all of our questions. The bus was modern and clean. We were warmly welcomed and fed at the ranch. This tour is worth every penny.

Very authentic- perfect food, wine, beer. Nice to do a horseback ride and the whispering techniques to horses by the gauchos. San Antonio is very nice as well and our guide Michaela was great! Thanks

A truly fab day! Jessica is a great tour leader - knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about all the history and story/stories of Argentina.

Amazing day. The Estancia is authentic. We enjoyed the horseback ride, the multitudes of grilled meats.
