This trip was absolutely fantastic. The entire event was well organised from beginning to end and very much worth the money I paid. The staff were helpful and easy to contact prior to the event. I was contacted the day before regarding confirmation of pick up which was directly from my hotel. The transport was on time and very comfortable. Our tour guide was very informative and lovely throughout. The tour around the town of San Antonio de Areco was worthwhile to see. I had the most amazing experience at the Ranch with the group I was with and all the Gauchos and staff at the Ranch. The hospitality was exceptional and the food was plentiful and delicious. This experience will be one I’ll never forget.

Our tour guide today, Marcelo, is the best!! He did his job perfectly in every ways. Giving us backgrounds and stories of the places, taking photos and brought us to amazing places. The horse riding is one of the best part. But the best part is the music show at lunch, which is the perfect combination. Asado is perfectly cooked and the dessert, which I ordered for flan, is sooo good! Can’t miss at all cause!

What a amazing day trip this was. My colleague and I had to visit Buenos Aires for work and luckily enough we found this company which took us to the ranch in San Antonio de Areco where we had a wonderful day with our tour guide in which we got to visit the Town of Areco and have a great day at the estancia having asado for lunch and doing some horseback riding. Loved it.
