Gaucho Day Tour Ranch in San Antonio de Areco from Buenos Aires

326 reviews
El Ombu de Areco Estancia is a traditional ranch located in San Antonio de Areco, at the heart of gaucho (cowboy) country and an easy drive from Buenos Aires. On this tour, spend an entire day at the estancia, with activities including horseback riding, a traditional ‘asado’ barbecue lunch, and a thrilling gaucho show.

The area of the tour is in La Boca. We went through several souvenir shops in the area and we warned not to keep our cell phones out or have an expensive camera hanging at our side. Out bed and breakfast warned us also about this too, so beware. The tour lasted a little over an hour. The cost was about 1000 pesos per person which is pricey for Argentina. The guide was well-spoken in English and knew her information but most of the area was recreated or restored and not very authentic. It is a series of old tunnels, sewers and cisterns from 1730 onward that was constructed above a river tributary which was one of BA oldest settlements. It would be a great venue to have a party. But given the opportunity, I would not take this tour again. Could take photos throughout.

So enjoyed hearing about how the tunnels were found. Tunnels were cool and I learned a lot about the archeology of cities.

1,000 pesos per person (not cheap). Privately owned, thus the price of the tour. Lasts 1 hour. 12pm, 2pm, 3pm I think. Spanish & English guide. Amazing story. Privately restored, archeologically intriguing. Across the street is the tiniest house in Buenos Aires.

Loved this place, but I love to learn about the history of places I visit. Just turned up and got on the next tour - their website is comprehensive and tells you which tours are in English, some background information and the price (currently 1000 pesos) so check it out before you go. Our tour guide spoke good english and the tour was very informative. Wish I could of wandered back through on our own to look at the exhibits in more detail.

This is an amazing visit. For us, after five months living in Buenos Aires and visiting almost everything else, this is the top attraction! Our tour guide Mariana easily answered every question we had. I think she was the best tour guide we’ve had anywhere. Make sure to take both tours, of the house and La Casa Minima!
