What people are saying about Buenos Aires

We had a really great day at the ranch ! They tour guide Sabrina was so lovely and full of really great information about the city and the ranch. We arrived and had empanadas and wine which were amazing ! Then we did horseback riding - so relaxing and fun. Horses are very well trained. Afterwards we had a traditional bqq where they just kept bringing the meat !! It was amazing, all the food was delicious. After food we watched live music and dancing and got a chance to join in on the traditional dancing. It was very fun. Then we watched a short horse show with its rider. It truly was a great day experiencing the ranch in Argentina! 100% recommend

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.

It was a beautiful day outside of Buenos Aires. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the country and its people on the trip. The farm we visited was beautiful, the food good, plentiful and authentic. We rode across the fields and saw a very impressive horse dressage. In addition, two musicians played for us. The day was really impressive. Very well organized and entertaining.

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.

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