“A once in a lifetime experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Was in BA with a group of family/friends in March and included a 'Day of Polo' in our trip. We had so much fun, so many laughs and not one single injury. The staff were all friendly and eager to help us not only have fun but feel comfortable enough to get on a horse and have a go - which we almost all did. The food was fantastic and more than we could possibly eat and the drinks flowed freely. The Empanadas were to die for - the best we found in all of South America by a long shot and the day was one of the most memorable of our entire trip. To Celia, Ruben and the staff - thankyou for providing an amazing, once in a lifetime experience with great service and convenience. Booking was simple and the pick up and return to hotels safe and comfortable and on time. Definitely an activity not to be missed.

“A perfect day”

Pick up: perfect
Place: perfect
Horses: perfect
Teacher and assistants: perfect
Food and wine: perfect

All the "hard" elements of the experience were perfect, but that was only the beginning. Truely we have been guests of Ruben, the owner. He is really passionate of his job and he does it greatly!
It was a superb day, everything was perfect.
Next time i'll do the 3 days clinic, he has a guest house, simple but very nice. Spending a couple of nights there with some friends will be a great experience.

“An absolutely incredible experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

My family from Australia were over in Bs As for a wedding and had organised a day at Argenina Polo Fay as something to do all together. There were 12 of us plus another few couples and I cannot tell you how much we loved it! The booking process was super easy; they picked us up and dropped us back at the hotel - Celia is incredibly well organised - and more importantly, the experience is one I will never ever forget. The day stated off with the most delish empanadas we had anywhere on South America, wines and a quick explanation of the rules, Steph, Alex and Alex were such a joy. And the slight language barrier between us and Ruben did not curb his enthusiasm in demonstrating a range of essential skills. Brilliant! Following this, more wine while watching a professional polo match right there on the ranch. The game was fast and furious and of a very high standard, the young kid absolutely killed it! It was truly brilliant. Our lunch cooked on site all in their parrilla was absolutely delish. And as much as you could eat... Brontosaurus ribs we were calling them! And then...it was our turn, to mount the professionally trained polo ponies for some practice followed by a game against each other. Hilarious yto play, i cannot even begin to imagine how funny we were to watch. Luckily the horses knew what they were doing, such amazing animals. And the puppies on the farm...we absolutelu wanted to take Nandomhome with us!! The Argentina Polo Day was undoubtedly one of the absolute highlights of my South American trip, and a at I will never forget. I can only hope that one day I got a chance to return and experience this incredible opportunity again. Wines, delish authentic Argentinian food and Polo...what more could you ask for on a day out in the outskirts of Buenos Aires?! Thank you Celia, Ruben and your team for your wonderful hospitality and for making this a day that when I look back on, I will laugh and smile as one as the best days I've ever had on a holiday.

“Hormiga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Polo Day- everyone was so hospitable, and I appreciated the attentiveness and kindness everyone gave so freely.

I was looking forward to spending some time with the horses, and I rode a sweetheart called Hormiga! The time I spent playing Polo was really Hormiga doing most of the work for me :0) I'm now inspired to continue playing polo here in Victoria, Canada ;0)

Big smiles, and would love to come visit again!

“A Pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This wasn't something we planned to do before we arrived in BA- there was an add for it on the the local tourist map so we decided to take a punt. Well, we felt like royalty! These people certainly know how to make visitors feel special. It helped to have the hosts from the UK to explain to us what was happening in English, as we had zero knowledge of the intricacies of the sport. Having the opportunity to have a ride after the game (when we had never been on a horse before) was an unexpected bonus!
