When we got there we thought we had fallen into yet another tourist trap, but the day turned out really well. We got to ride horses and have a lovely lunch on a lot of bife and very good wine. We watched a show with a lot of singing and the gauchos invited people to dance, so a real fiesta... More

After a comfortable coach ride we arrived at the Santa Susana ranch. The owner was very friendly and greeted us all with a kiss. On arrival we had delicious empanadas and a cool drink. While the bbq lunch was being prepared we enjoyed a leisurely horse ride accompanied by a couple of very handsome gauchos. Even though I have never... More

We visited this "working ranch" in January 2014 with a tour group. Tourists can get a snapshot of what gaucho life is (or was) like - they had horse and carriage rides (after you sign a waiver), a huge BBQ lunch, followed by tango dancers, a singer and a traditional gaucho performance. The finale is a wonderful display of horsemanship.... More

We rode health horses and took take a carriage ride. We strolled around on the farm and then watch the Gauchos prepare a barbecue, called asado al asador. At noon, we sat... More

We had a day to spare in B Aires and wanted to get out of the city and get at least a glimpse of 'gaucho' life........ Our Tour Guide recommended Santa Susana and we were not disappointed: Yes, it is a tourist set up, but so well done and a great value day out. Can only re-iterate all the positive... More

What an excellent decision it was to spend my last day in South America at Estancia Santa Susana. I was picked up from my hotel and after an easy journey arrived at the ranch. We were given a welcoming drink and hot empanadas, then straight over to the horse lines. I was given a sweet and responsive Criollo mare to... More

We knew going into this that it was going to be touristy, but not unlike a luau in Hawaii, it's fun to do once. The bus was about a half hour late picking us up, and then we spent a long time picking up other people. Once we arrived, they were handing out wine and juice and empanadas, which were... More
