    Will be that we were lucky enough to have found the climate and a group not too many tourists, but it was definitely unforgettable! The tour arranged flawlessly and Mercedes, our guide, really prepared. From the welcome with empanadas and wine, to the horseback ride, great lunch with wine and meat at the spectacle of the gauchos we found everything to be really nice. Excellent value for money!

    We began with a scenic drive into the famous Pampas of Argentina, home of the Gauchos. Upon arrival at the Estancia Santa Susana, we were welcomed with typical empanadas, delicious pasty-like mouthfuls of pastry, beef and veg, along with cups of white or red wine. We had a stroll around on the farm, I took a horseback ride, then watched the Gauchos prepare our barbecue, called asado al asador. At noon, we sat down together and feast on a meal of the Gauchos. There were salads, then the gauchos brought round chorizo sausage, blood sausage, slabs of beef, mounds of chicken then a final treat of lamb. The meal finished off with a nice desert and coffee, After lunch, the Gauchos played traditional music and show how they dance in the Pampa. I dragged my wife up to dance and we joined a group of ladies who were dancing too. We had a good time. To conclude the day, the Gauchos mounted up and began their display of horsemanship. Their skills seemed almost unbelievable, but these men do almost literally live in the saddle. The display started with one of the gauchos tying brass rings to strings hanging down from a goalpost -like affair. The gauchos then thundered up at a full gallop and tried to capture one of the rings on a pencil-like device. When they managed to catch a ring, they went up to the crowd and gave the ring to a lady in exchange for a kiss. My wife got both a ring and a kiss. A great day and a lot of tired people going home.

    Excellent experience in field can be as dynamic or as quiet as you want to spend your stay. The best empanadas and tested. Very traditional. the food is tasty, the wine is suitable for the food, as well as the sausage beer is a delicacy the Show presented at the time of the food is very good. The staff makes you feel very comfortable, and all without exception are very kind. I went in rainy season, and the landscape is spectacular, does not go out riding and enjoy a great barbecue and a good show great experience will be back someday!!!!
