TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME! Some dog followed us from town (not that we didn't try to chase it away for 2kms) and when we arrived, we were basically yelled at for bringing a dog in. When i said it's not my dog and I wish it would go away, the lady rudely answered 'it followed you, so you take it away'. Note: it really was following the Argentinian couple who arrived ahead of us (but hey, surely if a couple of argentinians walks in, a dog walks in 20 secs later and 2 gringos walk in 20 secs after the dog, the dog was following the gringos?!?) When i explained that we tried everything, she just told us we had to leave because the dog would follow us and scare the animals. Thank you, I do realise this. What I don't understand is, if you don't want strays in, why do you you keep your doors wide open for every strays to come in??? Surely if the gate had been closed we could have gotten in an left the dog out?!? Then we kept try to chase the dog away in front of the lady, and asking her what we should do since it was not moving, she didn't bother to answer. I already didn't feel like spending a single cent there after such a welcome, I had a look at the cheese (all hard paste) and the price (a steep 550 pesos for 3 samples) and decided that I'd rather keep this money to myself. Let's be honest, for this price you'll get about a kilo of goat hard paste cheese in a Yorkshire farm! And Yorkshire is not somewhere where you'll be followed by stray dogs. Bottom line: avoid to go there unless you have a car (with all the dogs roaming free around you're guaranteed one will follow you), don't go if it's soft paste cheese you're after and don't go if you appreciate politeness.

We really liked the tour, the guide explained everything in detail, answered all the questions and gave us time to see and interact with the goats. We were with children and she was really patient with them also. We really enjoyed the tour and the cheeses later, they were delicious.

It’s too bad the customer service is not as good as the cheese. After walking twenty minutes to get there we were told it was too late for a tour but they did give us a free tasting. They informed us to return the next morning,no set time given. We returned the next morning only to be told we had to wait for a group to be formed. After waiting fifteen we asked how much longer we had to wait and we were told may be 5 minutes or maybe two hours. Cafayate has a lot to offer so we didn’t waist our time waiting indefinitely and they lost out on the sale of the cheeses we wanted to buy.

We walked from Cafayete center for a good half an hour to Cabras de Cafayate where we've been nicely welcomed. We had a walked around by ourselves without explanation (otherwise it's not free but 50/pax) and had a cheese tasting for free.

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 off I went to see the goats, cows and lamas on the farm (not much more). When I came back to the reception and anticipating the cheese, I was courtly informed that the farm was closed and I had to leave. I asked if I could at least try the cheeses (that were already on a serving platter), but with a sour smile was again asked to leave since the farm was now closed. I understand I got there late, but I was not informed at the entrance that it was nearing closing time and that I should rush. Moreover, to give me five more minutes to enjoy the cheese would not have required much on their part. It is lamentable the lack of friendliness and customer service. The walk to the farm is about 20 min, from the town center. Time your visit, with a guided tour as otherwise you will not get much information.
