I have been working on the industry for 15 years now and it has become one of the most beautiful things to do, to present our city to the new visitors. That´s why i have developed this experience to show the history and development of the Argentinian pampas and the lifestyle of the Gauchos.

I expected something else - they work as an agency and bring you with plenty other tourists to a farm, horsebackriding in a line without explain anything before, during or after the ride.. the food was great, the folklore quickly for the tourist.. so, at least we had a very friendly tourguide, but i would not recommend it if you expect something personal..

The tour was overall a disappointing experience. It felt like a standard “touristy” tour, and included children. The group size was very big, and I was one of the only people to have booked it as an Airbnb Experience. The other participants booked it via websites as a standard tour. There wasn’t anything very unique or intimate about the experience, and our guide, although very friendly, was more of a chaperone.

This day was so much better than I had expected. Totally professional but also great fun and relaxed. Very nice small group and amazing food and wine. I recommend it without hesitation.

We had a fantastic time! From the horseback riding to the food and show, this was a once in a lifetime experience. Ayelen was our guide and he was spectacular! Ayelen was extremely knowledgeable, personable and friendly. He was clearly an expert and made this experience one to remember.

First off I never had any interaction with Pablo, Gustavo, Axel, Ayelen and other named people. Ilan was not even there at all during the trip despite me being told that Ilan will be picking us up. Not a big deal usually but since I sent them our personal passport info, we would have appreciated some consistency in our contacts. However, we enjoyed the company of Aime'. She clearly understood the life of the gaucho and even participated in the demonstrations. She was jovial, approachable and hospitable, a true world class host.

En fantastisk dag på landet med hesteridning, dans, deilig mat i store mengder og hyggelig vertskap. Barna på 9 og 11 år koste seg veldig. Anbefales!
