“A Fun Polo Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

This was a wonderful way to spend a day in Argentina. I went with a large group, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. We were all beginners (i.e., none of us had ever played polo, and most of us had little to no experience in riding a horse). For a beginner, this is a perfect experience that exposes you to calm horses that are very easy to handle. For those that just want a picture on a horse, and the ability to ride around for a half hour, you can do that here. For those that want to play a game of polo with a faster pace, such game occurs after the initial calm instruction and walk around with the horses, so that is available as well. The instructors are nice, fun, and easy to talk to. Fernando is a phenomenally nice guy with a lot of positive energy to add to the day.

I would highly recommend this event, especially for beginners and groups.

“Fun & Exciting Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

I hadn't rode a horse in years but it was so easy and fun. Fernando was a great teacher. We had a small group of just four people. We started the day just riding around for a bit getting used to our horse and then you start learning how to hit the balls with the mallet. We ended the day having our own little polo match. It was great. The horses were all pretty tame and easy to get along with as well. Fernando also teaches you all the rules to polo so if you don't know anything, like me, you'll be fine.

We went on a Saturday and afterwards we were actually able to go watch Fernando play in a match. It was so much fun!

The price is around $100 but it's a full day thing and such a great thing to try out.

“Great fun way to spend the day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

One of the best things we did in Buenos Aires. Fernando somehow managed to teach us to ride and play Polo in one day!

Fernando is a pro player but is also a great guy with the perfect temperament for teaching. Everyone had a great time and we met a bunch of fun and interesting people.

“An amazing day away from the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

An absolutely awesome day in the fresh air, an hour out of Buenos Aires, picked up in the city by our very capable guide Fernando who chatted with us along the way about various aspects of Argentine life. We were lucky as the Polo experience started for us at the stables where we watched the horses being prepared for transport to the game. After arriving at the field, the horses were saddled up and then the true excitement started. To hear the thunder of hooves, the knock of the mallet on the ball and to cheer for our team...together created an amazing atmosphere.

“A unique and enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

My wife and I were looking for activities to do in Buenos Aires and were glad we chose to play polo with Polo Elite. I have never played polo and have limited experience on horseback, my wife has practically no experience with horses. Yet we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience; the horses were fantastic and Fernando was friendly and professional. I have recommended this to my friends as one of the great activities to do in Buenos Aires.
