    Amazing experience!

    This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to Argentina! Our guide Martin was especially professional, knowledgeable and kind. The experience itself was mesmerizing with enchanting views and peaceful moments. Though the terrain is pretty rough and sometimes a bit scary, the horses are so well behaved and the guide and Daniel, the gaucho, so helpful that in no time you feel that you are in control and can relax and enjoy the moment. The doughnuts as well as the lunch were also amazing. Well worth the money!

    An awesome experience!! Myself and two other friends went on this and all three of us agreed it was the high point of our trip to Argentina. It started with meeting Noemi in our hotel lobby. She was the tour guide and was fun, friendly, energetic, knowledgeable and just immediately made it interesting right down to the ride to the ranch. We picked up two other guests on our way who were on their honeymoon and they were also fun. We were all served doughnuts more like beignets and tried Argentine Mate tea. It was great the tea came with instructions on how to drink it from Noemi. The ranch itself is definitely part of the experience and we were lucky to have had a sunny beautiful day. The ranch is spectacular! You just have to experience it. It is an absolutely beautiful part of the world. We were then introduced to our horses. I had never ridden a horse and was anxious about it. With a bit of instruction from Noemi and help from Mr. Daniel I was on my way and was comfortable with the experience in just minutes. My horse was fabulous and we bonded quickly. You quickly were lost in the beauty of what was around you and now the fun of riding a horse. We stopped for lunch where Don Daniel cooked over an open fire a slab of meat for us. Was it the outdoors, open air, the meat, the seasoning, the wine, the company or all of them but it was fantastic. The ride back was even more beautiful as we rode along ridges of mountains with incredible breathtaking views. Definitely a visual feast! All said and done I would love to think I was an awesome Gaucho, but the truth is more likely especially on some of the more narrow parts of the path that my horse took care of me. When we arrived back at the ranch I was ready to be off the horse, but not ready to say goodbye. Our thanks to all the people on this tour who made it such a fantastic experience.

    Please do this tour. You need it. Your soul needs it. This is not your typical vacation trail ride- experienced riders will enjoy more. You can help Daniel herd his horses back to the ranch. Absolutely a not miss.

    The Gaucho Day trip with Don Daniel was outstanding. We transferred from our hotel to the ranch no problem and stopped at Potrerillos along the way to take in the amazing views as well as to pick up snacks and drinks. We got to the ranch where our guide showed us around the ranch, and then went into the gaucho's home where his wife and kids made us fresh sopapillas and mate. We headed out on horseback into the mountains taking in more amazing views and stopped in a very scenic valley for lunch. We had a wonderful lunch of meat, veggies, and wine which we chilled in the stream!. We headed back down the mountain to the ranch in the afternoon. All horses on our trip were very easy and none were too excitable. When we got back to the ranch, people were there for an asado. We headed back to Mendoza. I would highly recommend this trip. It was the best highlight of many on our trip to the Andes!

    The scenery was worth the price alone! Great day trekking through the mountains and taking in the wonderful views, broke for lunch and a drop of wine with only our horses and the farm dogs for company! Our guide was really helpful and spoke excellent English, would highly recommend this trip!
