It was a cold wintery morning in BA, and nothing was more welcoming than the warm embers of the BBQ started early that morning, slow cooking for our lunch. The welcome glass of wine and perfectly done deliciously cooked empanada helped too. Yes they cater to tourists, photo opps, a token wagon and horse ride etc. However the food was... More

Have just returned from here having had a most enjoyable time. Situated about 90 km outside Buenos Aires, the trip was quite uneventful, the land is flat and the areas look like any poorer country. We were very fortunate in having a good and enthusiastic tour guide who explained many things about the history about the Gaucho's life and the... More

As far as selecting a gaucho experience, Santa Susana is one of the better options. However, the authentic gaucho experience has turned into a tourist attraction. After a long bus ride to the ranch, we went on a 15 minute horseback ride (more like a stroll) followed by a heavy BBQ lunch. Then they put on a show with some... More

Absolutely loved it! Fantastic day trip from Buenos Aires. We were picked up at the hotel and driven to the ranch. The gauchos were there to greet us. We were offered empanadas and wine or soft drinks immediately. We took a tour of the ranch house with our guide Antonella who was excellent. There was horseback riding or carriage rides... More

The ranch was nice. Food was ok. Horseback riding was boring bec you can't ride out on your own. So everyone will wait and follow the leader around an area really slow. The show after lunch was not bad. The gaucho show after was ok.

If you spending more than a few days in Buenos Aires, this is a great way to spend a day out of the city. The experience provided by Estancia Santa Susana personifies Argentina, in terms of its food and culture. On arrival you are welcomed with excellent empanadas and wine/juice. Huge amounts of meat are cooked on the traditional asado.... More

We took a group to Estancia Santa Susana for an authentic Argentine country experience. We were greeted upon arrival with a delicious empanada and cup of wine or juice. Then you can either go on a small horseback or carriage ride around a pasture before lunch. Lunch is family style in a huge hall (great for large groups). The food... More

We were picked up on time by a mini bus. The drive including a short refreshment stop took around one hour from Buenos Aires. There is a nice welcome with empanadas on arrival. The place is well-run and set in attractive grounds. The horse skills show by the gauchos was probably the highlight, though as a previous contributor said, it... More

What a fantastic day, from beginning to end. We were meet by gauchos, along with empanadas and wine, then left to look round the ranch. We are given the chance to ride the horses and if you didn't want to do that you could ride in a horse and carriage. There is also a museum and gift shop. The grounds... More
