Gaucho Fiesta with Lunch

This authentic full day Buenos Aires excursion is a special chance to encounter Argentina's legendary gaucho, similar to the American cowboy. Ride a horse, view gorgeous scenery, and enjoy a fiesta like none other on this fun-filled Argentina adventure.

You'll be transported to a rustic yet regal ranch on the outskirts of Buenos Aires and warmly welcomed by the host family. Once you've sampled a few specialties, like empanadas (meat pastries), and sipped renowned Argentinean wines, your gaucho festival begins.

Excellent horsemen and cattle herders, the gauchos will take you on horseback through the fertile lowlands, which are called "pampas." If you don't want to ride, you can hike around the beautiful property, taking pictures of the countryside and soaking up the South American sun.

After building up an appetite, it's time for a typical Argentine "Asado" (BBQ), including mixed salads, chorizo (pork sausage), beef steaks, chicken, and dessert. Your meal also includes three beverages: your choice of a half bottle of wine, a bottle of mineral water, a soft drink, coffee, or tea.

Following your hearty meal, a folkloric musical show will unfold with Argentine song and dance. Then you'll be invited to watch the gauchos perform the "Carrera de sortijas" (ring-race) and the "Carrera cuadrera" (horse races).

At the end of your tour, you will be dropped off at your choice of 3 exciting locations within Buenos Aires to explore or enjoy shopping in this vibrant city. This thrilling opportunity to step back in time and experience the horse riding and festivities unique to the Argentine Gaucho will fulfill your desire for authentic adventure. Dress for the season on this full-day Buenos Aires tour.

Please Note: This tour offers drop-off to your choice of 3 exciting locations within Buenos Aires to explore or shop at your leisure after the tour: the Obelisk of Buenos Aires, the Galerias Pacifico Shopping Center, or the Puerto Madero Waterfront.
