We walked from town, it's roughly 2.6k's and a very enjoyable walk east along Córdoba street. We arrived and didn't do a tour as we wouldn't understand most of it (we have basic... read more

Sometimes is just a question of bad timing and/or unwillingness to go the extra mile. Upon arrival the welcome was quite friendly and I was informed that I had just missed the guided tour, but if I paid the entrance I could visit the farm by myself. I would get to taste some to the cheeses when I returned. So... More

I really enjoyed this experience. Cafayate is not so nice as Cachi, but it is worth visiting because of the activities it offers, such as wine tasting. Visiting this goat cheese farm is a great experience. I love goat cheese so i was really looking forward to this visit. Our tour guide, Jairo, was really nice and we learned a... More

We walked from town, it's roughly 2.6k's and a very enjoyable walk east along Córdoba street. We arrived and didn't do a tour as we wouldn't understand most of it (we have basic travel Spanish only). We asked for a tasting plate which was $10pesos each, and took it outside to enjoy. We picked our favourite flavour which we then... More

One woman to attend, guide tour, serve, charge, do everything for 50+ people. No credit cards and no goat. Beautiful view in the way, but once you arrive and take some pictures, it is better to leave as soon as possible if you do not want to get nervous.

This place is incredible. The rocks and canyons are amazing. We spent a wonderful day there starting our trip from Salta and going with Uma travel. Noemi, our tourist guide was well prepared and she was helpful as well, The town of Cafayate is not that beautiful, there is not much to see there, but the road trip there worth... More

We were interested in going on the tour of this farm but the staff didn't seem overly enthused in giving it. I'll admit that our Spanish is a bit average but all the woman needed to do was slow down and explain slowly what was happening. As far as we could tell she told us to just wander around by... More

We visited this goat farm after visiting the winery co-owned by the same family. Apparently they started the goat farm because they needed goat manure for their vineyards. Then 400 goats and 20 cows later, a fully-fledged cheese operation. If you are taken to visit this place on a tour with one of the few English-speaking guides in the regions... More

This cheese farm is in an absolutely beautiful location. We had our own tour guide who took us to this place and conducted a tour, explaining the cheese making process. That was good, but watching the goats, tasting the cheese and enjoying the surroundings was enough for us. Very enjoyable visit.

If you don't know Spanish (I don't) the tour is not that informative. (Luckily, my daughter is fairly fluent and she helped.) It's nice to see and feed the goats (you can buy corn kernels at the cheese shop before you go), but I wasn't thrilled to see them sawing off the horns of some of the goats. (I'd never... More

If you love cheese, go and do the tour here! I am from Wisconsin, the dairy state of the USA, but have never actually seen and learned how my favorite food is made. Rather than cows, which they do actually have here, I learned the process with goats and then got to try the most delicious goat cheese I have... More
