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.

An Icon of the arts you MUST visit while in Buenos Aires. The guided tours are a great help to understand better the house when you go on a performance. Notice, though, if the ticket says “partial or no view”, it is true!

We saw the Opera last November and we are still talking about the beauty of the venue. We purchased the tickets online months in advance--little confusing, but figured out the credit card payment. It is truly one of the special venues in the world and definitely worth visiting.

It was a bit of a hassle trying to book the tour online. I wanted to book the tour for mid-January. However, the online reservations were not available until the beginning of the month. Not so good if you wanted to book on January 2. In addition, I contacted them via email in December and received a reply that they would only have three English tours on the day that I wanted to book. So, I booked an 11 AM English tour and worked our other Buenos Aires attractions that day around that tour. So, when we arrived that day, it was evident that there were many more English tours that were added. That was disappointing as I would have preferred a different time. However, our tour guide spoke English very well and was very informative. The 50 minute tour took us to different parts of the theater so we were able to see more than if we bought a ticket for one of their opera, ballet, or symphonic orchestra performances. Pavarotti performed here and said that the acoustics were perfect. Photos without flash allowed.

We visited the theatre as part of our pre-arranged city tour so the tickets were purchased in advance for us. The tour was 1 hour long and the guide was knowledgeable and also humorous while explaining the history and significance of the building itself. It is absolutely stunning inside - incredibly opulent in the grand halls leading into the actual theatre. Gives you the idea of how the rich really did live back in the day. The theatre itself is also beautiful. Set up with seats on the floor and box seating up through the numerous levels. It felt like it was vibrating inside as people moved around. Apparently Pavarotti said that he wouldn't sing there a second time since the acoustics were too perfect - allowing no forgiveness to a performer. A place not to miss!

The building itself is beautiful and worth a walk by and some photos. I would have rated it higher if I had been able to see the inside... My friend and I were running ahead of schedule, and instead of just doing a walk-by of the theater, we decided to take a spin around the theater before heading on to our other activities. Alas, the Gods of Sightseeing do not smile upon those without pre-purchased tickets. Visitors can go as far as the lobby and cafe, but beyond that, a guided tour ticket is required, and they were already near sold out for the day. It was only 9:30am on Friday, January 3. I knew it was a long shot, showing up and hoping to drop right into a tour, but we had to try. Those in line at the theater ticket office were waiting to buy tickets for the tours that would begin at 2pm or later. The line to buy the tickets was about a 20 minute wait. We couldn't stick around for a few hours because we already had different tours scheduled elsewhere. Bummer. So much to see, so little time... I recommend dropping by at opening to buy your tickets. Be prepared to return later for the tour if necessary. The tours are 1 hr in duration and are offered from 9 to 5. Spanish tours run every 15 minutes. English tours are offered at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm, and sell out fast. The tour was 1,000 pesos per person (roughly $16). You could buy tickets online ahead of time through third party vendors, but they are more than twice the price of tickets purchased onsite. Hope that helps you plan! **A few gripes I had about planning a trip in Argentina: Finding reliable information about opening hours, tours, and ticket prices of attractions and museums in Buenos Aires was the bane of my existence as I planned the itinerary for this trip. The government website provides descriptions and photos of tourist sites, but not visiting hours, prices, nor the means with which to reserve a time slot or purchase a ticket. It was mad annoying! I recommend the Get Your Guide site to purchase online tickets for about the same price as tickets sold at the door, and they include skip-the-line. Unfortunately, the choices were limited and did not include most of the sites we wanted to visit, so we were forced to just "show up" at sites and hope for the best. The good news is that only a few attractions were actually sold out. The bad news, however, is that some sites offer only 1 or 2 tours on certain days, forcing visitors to juggle their plans or miss out. Another gripe is that the opening days for sites clustered in the same area or plaza were often at odds (weekdays vs weekends), forcing us to either choose between attractions ~OR~ to burn another half a day backtracking previously trodden ground in order to tour that which was closed during our previous visit the day before. Equally maddening. Hopefully, knowing these setbacks ahead of time will help you be more prepared to make adjustments or see alternatives in the area to make the most of your sightseeing time. Hope that helps! Enjoy Argentina!
