What to Expect
Escape the city and take a journey back to simpler times on this 8-hour gaucho tour. You’ll be picked-up at your downtown hotel and drive to the countryside estancia, or ranch, for a fun-filled day.
When you arrive at Santa Susana, you’ll have some time to socialize while enjoying the taste of handmade empanadas. Then you’ll have some free time to take in the sights of the estancia, explore the area, and go for a horseback ride. The grounds are literally at your disposal!
You won’t go hungry on this tour. After exploring the ranch you’ll be invited to partake in an asado, which is a traditional Argentinean barbeque that is accompanied by both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and dessert with coffee or tea.
The fun doesn’t stop there. After lunch you’ll be entertained by a folkloric and a tango show.
Then the real show begins when the gauchos come out to show you their skills with horses. This part of the day is also interactive, so you’d better have your boots on and be ready to go!
