Everything was very well organized. Guides are competent and give a lot of interesting information about the Gaucho culture, histrory etc. The estancia is an extremely nice place, we had a wonderful horse ride with gauchos followed by a good lunch. I recommend this tour to everyone.

We were a group of eight, mostly senior citizens arriving by cruise ship. The whole day was a delight and went exactly as we were told it would. We were met at the cruise terminal by Jose Maria, a gentleman who spoke beautiful English, was extremely knowledgeable about the area, and most importantly was patient and considerate of the senior...

We had an excellent day out. We tend to avoid organised trips but the reviews for this were so good that we thought we would give it a try and are we glad we. The organisation was excellent. The tour of San Antonio d'Areco was interesting and informative although slightly truncated by recent flooding. The visit to the ranch was... More

Me William is a good tour guide. He can speak fluent English and is really patient to introduce the Gaucho history and San Antonio city history.

Good day in the countryside. The hosts are very friendly, amicable and willing to ensure the experience was second to none. I recommend this trip to anyone looking to explore what is outside of Bs As.

The guide we had (Manuel) was very informative about the town of San Antonio. (The stop at the chocolate stop can't be missed). The Estancia trip was well organized and seeing the demo by the gaucho with his horse was very impressive. Food was excellent.

After being in the busy city it was nice to see some of the countryside (reminds us of the midwest in the US) and see how life is in the smaller towns. Areco de San Antonio was a charming town. Reminded us how small town squares use to be. My only regret was not buying more chocolate at the chocolate... More

I wanted my wife to have the experience of a lifetime when we were in BA, and really wanted us both to see the countryside as well as the hustle and bustle. I really don't even know how to properly describe the day we had thanks to Miguel and Manuel, as well as Diego and all of the wonderful folks... More
