“Amazing experience and great customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I visited poloelite earlier this year with a friend of mine. Throughout the booking process Fernando was extremely helpful and accommodating, showing flexibility when our plans changed. Having never ridden a horse before he quickly went over the basics and was really helpful. It was also fantastic to have a non tourist/gimmicky trip to an Estancia. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend as a must to anyone visiting BA!

“Best activity you can do in Argentina or anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

First of all Fernando is such a fun, nice, and professional person. He spoke English so well too, I think he was the best in Argentina. I had such a great time learning and playing Polo that I am looking into learning more in the US. Fernando was able to teach us the game, how to ride a horse, and play a game all within a few hours. He has some serious skills!

“How many people can say they've played polo?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We can! There were four of us who spent the day with Fernando at Polo Elite. Fernando obviously loves his sport, but equally loves showing neophytes how to play. We had to remind ourselves to slow down and not get ahead of ourselves; a common American problem. But after "mastering" control of the horse, our mini polo game was just like the World Polo Championship--only 20 times slower. It was great fun and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. We felt like we were saying goodbye to an old friend when Fernando dropped us off.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

What a day! Nice break to get out of the city, breath some fresh air, and have a unique experience. There were 4 of us and none of us had been on a horse. Fernando was great. While our game may have been the slowest game in the history of the sport for us, thankfully, we had a great time. What I got out of the day was a true understanding and appreciation of the sport. Thank you Fernando for your patience and professionalism.

“Very Argentinian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Worth the cost to experience the sport of the rich and famous.
Easy drive and and enjoyable to be away from the craziness of the city and in a more relaxing environment.

Although the comment is positive, it seems that the reviewer didnt really come with us.
He is talking just about polo in general, and he doesnt say anything about our services.
