Well worth going
Feb 2020 • Couples
We just arrived from Bariloche and my husband really wanted to do this tour. I am so glad we did. We thought it would be miles away but was just on the edge of town. Still we were picked up on time and the guide explained that the town has grown up around the estancia. He was extremely knowledgeable and we were the only English out of 12 or so and he made a real effort to talk to us. The whole event was very interesting and the food and show were great. It is a tourist destination but I felt we got a real feel for the day to day workings of the farm. Would highly recommend.

Very nice experience. The family gave us an introduction of family history. They taught to us the farm, how sheep is shave, and a good folkloric show composed by the family.

As part of the tour is a good dinner.

Evening that exceeded my expectations
Nov 2019 • Solo
I wasnt too sure about booking this tour however so glad I did. The Estancia was very beautiful . Got to know a lot about the everyday routine at the farm. Also tasted some good coffee made by dunking a smokey charcoal, mulled wine and snacks before the big fiesta we had for dinner. Dinner was delicious and much more impressive then expected. Alcoholic beverages are extra however very reasonably priced. I had a fund evening and would recommend this tour for everyone.

A lovely thing to do while in El Calafate
Nov 2019
I booked for an evening here using Patagonia Chic online. Pick up from our hotel at 5.30pm. It was great to learn about the farming of sheep in this part of Patagonia. We particularly enjoyed the rounding up of sheep and being so close to them as they went in to the pen. A demonstration and explanation of sheep shearing was excellent, again getting very close to the sheep. The dinner and show was lovely. Returned to our hotel about 11pm. It was good to meet other tourists from other countries.

The authentic Patagonian life.

It's now a tour, showing how they lived in the past. Very clever organisation, close to the (past) reality. Great experience, including the very good traditional dinner afterwards. Nothing fancy, just the real stuff!

Went today for the morning and lunch trip. Learnt a lot about the history of El Calafate and the Estancias.

Never seen coffee made the way it was. I won’t spoil the surprise just take a visit to see.

Thanks to Brenda and co for a fab lunch. If you are a couple go for a different pudding each do you can sample both options.

Good value

Great Local Experience
Jan 2019 • Solo
What a wonderful evening of traditional estancia activities with an excellent leader and respectful and gracious staff. Every aspect of the experience was a delight--campfire, horses, sheep herding, sheep shearing, dogs, pasties, bread, coffee, wine, gardens and more. As a guest of Kau Yatun Hotel, the tour and folkloric show were included. This was a highlight of my Argentina vacation.

Lovely

We just loved our later afternoon/evening at la Estancia 25 de Mayo. We are a family with kids of 6 and 8 years. The tour was very interesting and the staff was super nice with the kids. We loved the dinner, especially for the quality of the meat, but also for the good vibe of the place. Strongly recommended for families!

Is this associated with Kau Yatun hotel?
Dec 2018 • Friends
I stayed at Kau Yatun which is associated with an estancia and is a few blocks out of town. One could reserve a gratis estancia tour with Yerba mate, etc. but not sit down dinner. It was very worthwhile. I think this is same estancia and would recommend just staying at the associated Kau Yatun, nice place that I enjoyed and free estancia tour included if you reserve. Would need to confirm it is the same place but photos look similar

Hola Monique!! El hotel y la estancia están ubicados en el mismo lugar, pero son cosas diferentes!! Seguro que las personas que se alojan en el hotel pueden hacer la visita a la estancia sin problema y disfrutar del parque y demás!
