What to expect
Board a comfortable coach at your downtown Buenos Aires hotel and head out into the Argentine pampas (plains). Attend a friendly welcome reception upon arrival at Estancia Don Silvano that includes juice, wine, and traditional empanadas. Visit the ranch's bakery and its museum before attending a milking demonstration. Help the gauchos milk the cows yourself if you like, then watch as they saddle up the horses. Climb on a tame horse and enjoy a relaxed ride through the surrounding countryside. After the ride, eat a barbecue lunch including chicken, ribs, sausages, potato salad and ice cream for dessert. Watch a traditional Argentinian folkloric show including singing and dancing while you enjoy your beverages, including wine, soft drinks, coffee, and water. Get on your feet and try out some of the dances yourself before opting for a carriage or tractor ride to view other parts of ranch. Watch the gauchos participate in ring racing and other demonstrations of their incredible horsemanship. Have a snack of quince jelly on sweet cakes before boarding your bus back to the city. Try mate, a traditional Argentine drink made of yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water that has its own rituals and history. Your full-day estancia (ranch) excursion on the pampas ends with drop-off in downtown Buenos Aires.

Great day
Jan 2020
We visited in late January and were collected from our hotel by Diego our tour guide with Guadeloupe who was training and our driver Cesar. The drive out to the ranch was easy and Diego gave us a running commentary of areas of interest. At the ranch we were met by our host and offered refreshments and an empanada which was delicious. We had a choice of a gentle horse ride or carriage ride, we chose the horse ride and had a lovely ride. After a wander around the ranch we had lunch and were treated to a dance and cabaret who were brilliant, the tango was fast and expertly carried out. The food was good and after lunch we had a display of horsemanship before it was time to head back to our hotel. We can thoroughly recommend this trip if you are visiting Buenos Aires.

Great day at the ranch...
Looked at loads of similar tours and all the reviews. This one was the cheapest with good reviews so decided to take the plunge.

Started off a tiny bit shaky due to lack of communication on pick up location and time. However, all actually went smooth as the wine on the tour.

Fun filled day with plenty of food available. Highlights being the gorgeous, tasty empanadas.

Plenty of freedom to wander around the ranch but also enough structured activities to keep the devil away from your idol hands.

Lunch and show also a plus with staff friendly and inclusive of all.

Overall, thoroughly recommended day and excellent value for money.

Suprisingly good.
Nov 2019
At first I was a bit sceptical about this tour, especially about why it lasted the whole day. But it was the perfect combination of entertainment and activities at a relaxed pace on a hot day. It was my first ever horse ride and it was more comfortable and fun than I ever expected. Combined with the carriage ride, you really learn to respect the cowboy way of living in the past (boneshaking rides and saddle pains).
The food was indeed great and as customary in BA way to much. And the tango and folklore singer were top notch, actually better than some other shows I visited.
I picked this tour over the other ranch tours because it was smaller and that was perfect. We didn't have to way too long for everybody and it created a very relaxed atmosphere. We learned a lot about gaucho and BA customs and history. On the way back to the hotels everybody fell asleep in the bus, happy and content.

Very Enjoyable Experience
Aug 2019
The day was very well planned with good English speaking guides. Best empanadas we tasted in BA. Great BBQ. Entertainment was most enjoyable with traditional dances, tango and a show of horsemanship. Guide and driver dropped us off at our hotel, which was near the city centre, even when the tour indicated drop off in the city centre. We had a great time.

lovely setting but not sure its a great day out.
Jul 2019 • Family
Really nice setting some hour or so outside of Buenos Aires. there is not a great deal to do despite the hype. there is a small aerial adventure park with a short zip line but not sure how this fits into the gaucho life style. The horse riding really is for absolute beginners so don't expect to go galloping across the pampas. The riding show is poor although the horsemanship of the riders is first rate. The little animal park is a bit depressing but you can see Rheas, llamas etc. The lunch is excellent and the singing and dancing very upbeat and entertaining. I didn't pay so i'm not sure if it is value for money.

Dear Traveler, The excursion to Don Silvano has the purpose to showing the Argentina culture, offering the typical asado and a folkloric show. The rides are done with horses trained for beginners since those who visit the estancia do not always have the ability to handle them. The estancias are aware of the dangers that can be presented by a fall. Thanks for your comments, Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency

Good memory but overprice
The food and show was great. But check the weather before you book this tour. If it rain, try to book another day. Otherwise, you will get wet, they did not provide umbrela. Also they did not pick up and drop off at hotel(not on their list). So i have to walk to meeting point for 12 minutes in rainy day. It was a good memory because of the show, but they should improve their service.

Dear Traveler, Thanks for your comments, We are happy to know that you enjoyed the show and the food as that is the purpose of the tour. As it is a regular tour, the pick ups are made from downtown hotels and the drop off at city center. On the other hand, umbrellas are not provided. All this information is specified in the reservation site. We regret that the weather conditions have not been completely good. However, we are glad to know that you learn about our culture. Thank you for your comments, as it help us to improve our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency

Day to remember
Apr 2019 • Family
It's an hour or so to get to the ranch, but definitely worth the ride. It's a beautiful place, best empanadas once we got there. Horse back riding, carriage ride, tango show, gauchos show, lots of good food and plenty wine. There were sheeps, cows, horses, peacocks, birds, flamingo, a beautiful 🦉 and a parrot can say a few words and he bites if your hands too close ro the cage to take pix of the owl.

Day of fun fun fun
Our hotel set this up for us and we were pleased. Cost was reasonable. Pickup was on time. Van would have been great but they had 3 large guys and myself stuffed along a bench seat in the back row so it was a tight ride getting there. Exiting they served you wine and yummy empanadas. There was quite a wait time between the first batch and the second batch so the last to arrive had to wait quite a but for theirs which was a small inconvenience. Then you could wander the beautiful old grounds, go for a carriage ride or go for about a 20 min horseback ride. Don’t delay getting in line if you want a horseback ride as it is limited hours. You must have a little experience as they just place you on a horse and off you go. Its an argentinian “ saddle”, not a leather saddle so not much to hold on to if you are a newby. One man and boy did fall off their horse, luckily no one hurt.
Then you go into a large building where they serve you gallons of wine, other non alcoholic drink available, and lots of meats and sides. Did I say more wine!! Meanwhile a wonderful couple dance tango and other dances, musicians play and sing and even kareoke getting everyone to sing along! Tons of fun. Then you can roam around, see a horse display then gather back for mate and dessert.
Caution: the parrot in the cage on the grounds BITES!! Then they return you back to your hotel.
I would recommend this.
