Thoroughly recommend Rancho Viejo, Cesar was the best.......!!!! Never rode a horse in my life until today, my knees were literally shaking, realising this Cesar fall back and rode with me until I got comfortable. The ride took us through vineyards, olive groves, rivers and foot of the Andes. It was a very scenic ride with Cesar continuously looking after... More

There are many options for the Argentine horseback ride/asado, but none combine the overall quality with authentic elements for an exceptional price like Ranch Viejo. Cesar is one of those characters, who will stay in your memory, years after you leave Mendoza. He is constantly building and improving the facilities. The route for the cabalgatas is unique as it combines... More

I traveled to Mendoza with my son after a business trip in Chile. I originally sought this out for my son, but we both had a great time. The scenery, the horses, the food , and especially Cesar made this a wonderful memory. Cesar's reputation is already well established by other reviews, and that's why I contacted him. He's easy...

We booked with Cesar back in November of 2014 (sorry to take so long to write the review Cesar!) which was a lovely time of the year to see the surrounding countryside of Mendoza/Maipu, Argentina, by horseback. Cesar was super friendly, and made a real effort with all the riders to talk, and to help with the riding element too... More

The reason for me to write this review is that I had one of those rare "authentic" moments as a tourist - due to Cézar's hard work and lovely character - and I would like to have him more clients/ guests that truly appreciate what he offers. My husband and I had booked our horseback-riding tour already two weeks ahead... More

A delightful, scenic two-hour horseback ride through wine country was followed by, hands down, the best meal I had in Argentina. Cesar prepared a simple but wonderful meal grilled in his own home. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful night we'll never forget. Thanks Cesar!

I had ridden with Cesar a few years ago and I was looking to a ride through the vineyards, with tastings at two vineyards. Because he was away and my Spanish is very poor, I ended up with two hours riding through the vineyards and around the river - very relaxing but not what I wanted.

We had a thoroughly lovely time at the ranch, even though my husband had never ridden before and 3 weeks previously I had a nasty fall from a horse so was very nervous. They gave us the most delightful and well behaved horses and we took it easy and had a slow meander through the vine-yards. Our guide was César's... More

This was an unforgettable experience. We did a three-week tour through South America and this was one of the high points. Relaxed horseback ride through wine yards and olive plantations by a full moon with a delicious fogon at the end, everything carefully prepared. Cesar and his nephew are amazing hosts. Cesar was so kind to take pictures while we... More
