Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Don Silvano Ranch

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Board a comfortable coach at your downtown Buenos Aires hotel and head out into the Argentine pampas (plains). Attend a friendly welcome reception upon arrival at Estancia Don Silvano that includes juice, wine, and traditional empanadas.

    Visit the ranch's bakery and its museum before attending a milking demonstration. Help the gauchos milk the cows yourself if you like, then watch as they saddle up the horses. Climb on a tame horse and enjoy a relaxed ride through the surrounding countryside.

    After the ride, eat a barbecue lunch including chicken, ribs, sausages, potato salad and ice cream for dessert. Watch a traditional Argentinian folkloric show including singing and dancing while you enjoy your beverages, including wine, soft drinks, coffee, and water. Get on your feet and try out some of the dances yourself before opting for a carriage or tractor ride to view other parts of ranch. Watch the gauchos participate in ring racing and other demonstrations of their incredible horsemanship.

    Have a snack of quince jelly on sweet cakes before boarding your bus back to the city. Try mate, a traditional Argentine drink made of yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water that has its own rituals and history. Your full-day estancia (ranch) excursion on the pampas ends with drop-off in downtown Buenos Aires.

    The day was very well planned with good English speaking guides. Best empanadas we tasted in BA. Great BBQ. Entertainment was most enjoyable with traditional dances, tango and a show of horsemanship. Guide and driver dropped us off at our hotel, which was near the city centre,

    Really nice setting some hour or so outside of Buenos Aires. there is not a great deal to do despite the hype. there is a small aerial adventure park with a short zip line but not sure how this fits into the gaucho life style. The horse riding really is for absolute beginners so

    The food and show was great. But check the weather before you book this tour. If it rain, try to book another day. Otherwise, you will get wet, they did not provide umbrela. Also they did not pick up and drop off at hotel(not on their list). So i have to walk to meeting point

    It's an hour or so to get to the ranch, but definitely worth the ride. It's a beautiful place, best empanadas once we got there. Horse back riding, carriage ride, tango show, gauchos show, lots of good food and plenty wine. There were sheeps, cows, horses, peacocks, birds,

    Our hotel set this up for us and we were pleased. Cost was reasonable. Pickup was on time. Van would have been great but they had 3 large guys and myself stuffed along a bench seat in the back row so it was a tight ride getting there. Exiting they served you wine and yummy
