- One of the most fun-packed excursions from Buenos Aires
- Journey back in time into Argentinian cowboy culture
- Watch the skills of professional gauchos in action
Argentinian gauchos were kind of like the cowboys of the Wild West - hardy, skilful and often brave workers on cattle ranches who now occupy a well-respected position in the country’s folklore. This exciting Buenos Aires experience gift takes you to an ‘estancia,’ or ranch, where you can enjoy life as a gaucho for the day. Take a ride into the rural surroundings either on horseback or by a handsome horse-drawn carriage, then settle down for an ‘asado,’ a mouthwatering BBQ lunch with drinks and dessert, before an entertaining folklore show unfolds in front of you, featuring music, dancing and outlandish gaucho stunts!
On arrival, you’ll be welcomed with some tasty traditional empanadas. You can explore the ranch at leisure before the show begins. Watch a colourful tango demonstration, then the gauchos arrive to wow you with their skills such as roping horses and ‘ring races.’ This is interactive entertainment, so be prepared if you’re pulled from the crowd and asked to take part in the show! Then it’s back on the coach for your return to downtown Buenos Aires - a fun-filled day out perfect for all the family, and a nice introduction to life as an Argentine cowboy to boot.
