Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Santa Susana Ranch
From US$131.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
This gaucho day trip from Buenos Aires provides a close-up look at a traditional cowboy ranch, Estancia Santa Susana, less than two hours from Buenos Aires. On this tour, experience gaucho life and culture on a ranch tour, saddle up for a horseback ride, tuck into a hearty asado barbecue, and enjoy live entertainment, including folk music, tango, and a horsemanship display.
What to Expect

Your tour begins with pickup from your central Buenos Aires hotel and a transfer to Estancia Santa Susana by air-conditioned minivan.

The fiesta atmosphere starts when you arrive and are greeted with Argentine wine and homemade empanadas. Set out on a tour of the ranch and meet the gauchos, Argentina’s own version of the American cowboy. Depending on your preference, either enjoy a horseback ride or a horse-drawn carriage ride around the ranch.

After working up an appetite, tuck into a delicious barbecue lunch including a selection of meats and salads, accompanied by Malbec wine. Finish with sweet pastries and traditional yerba mate.

During the meal, enjoy a variety of live entertainment, including folk music and dancing, a tango demonstration, and a boleadoras show with weapon-throwing. Finally, the gauchos mount up for a spectacular horseback performance, showing off daring stunts, animal herding, and racing.

Your tour ends back in downtown Buenos Aires.

Fantastic day out of the city with an amazing bbq

The horsemanship of the gauchos is very impressive and their hospitality is second to none. The meal is worth the trip out alone with more meat than you can eat, all cooked beautifully. Great to see a different side to Argentina.

I doubt if they'll come out as far as the airport but I guess it depends how many of you there are. Maybe give them a call in Buenos Aires. Sorry I can't help more, I was staying near the centre of BA so was easy for me... More

Sorry I can't answer that but I would think they can get anyone on a horse and make it enjoyable.
