Fernando and Lourdes were wonderful hosts. I was in Buenos Aires for a business school trip with friends and significant others, and both Fernando's car service and polo lessons came highly recommended to me by a colleague whose previous company employed Fernando's family-run car service regularly. It was a breeze to coordinate with Fernando for airport pickups for my group of 9 travelers, and other classmates with smaller groups. Fernando was extremely knowledgeable about sightseeing in Buenos Aires, spoke great English, and was friendly and welcoming. I had no previous experience riding horses and most in my group also had little to no recent experience. However, polo was a top recommended activity in Buenos Aires, and we found Fernando to be reliable and trustworthy. Our entire group of a dozen friends had a phenomenal and memorable excursion on the polo ranch. Lourdes met us from our hotel in Buenos Aires to pick us up in a large and comfortable vehicle. Fernando was knowledgeable and a great teacher. The horses were gentle, and the location was expansive. Over the course of a few hours, we had more than enough time to get comfortable on the horses and then take turns in two groups to play polo on the beginner-level horses. There were even empanadas, mate, and wine! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of Fernando's businesses.

I took polo lessons with some friends without having ridden a horse in more than a decade and within an hour, I was playing polo! Everything went smoothly and I was able to quickly pick up the sport to be competitive with my friends. I highly recommend this experience and I've already gone a second time!!

Fernando's Polo Experience is a must when visiting Buenos Aires or the surrounding area. Fernando provided transportation to and from the polo location and was incredibly communicative throughout the planning process. He introduced us to his horses and other animals prior to gearing up for the polo lesson. Fernando is a fantastic instructor - polo is no easy feat, but it was the highlight of our trip to Argentina. The horses were great and the lesson was so much fun ending with a friendly match. Fernando is knowledgeable, personable, and clearly loves his horses and this sport. All around incredible!

A wonderful, knowledgeable instructor who took the time to ensure the group understood the basics of riding as well as the rules of the game. We finished the class with a quick match and then spoke about Argentina’s rich polo culture. The experience was tremendous and I highly recommend the class to anyone.

From Canada and always wanted to try polo. Saw the opportunity for a private lesson with Fernando and it was the Best !! 67 years old , so it was a dream come true. Fernando is a knowledgeable professional with excellent horses and equipment. The lesson and experience was so much more than I expected. Learned a lot and had a wonderful morning in the country with horses and a great instructor ! Highly recommended and well worth the investment.
