Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Santa Susana Ranch
US$162.00
Overview
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.

Disappointing day trip

If you are an Australian who has ever been to a cattle farm....don't bother. We were expecting a full on experience and typical Gaucho food and entertainment. What we got was a mix of good and not so good. On arrival we were greeted with...More
