From your centrally located Buenos Aires hotel
Returns to original departure point at approximately 7pm
Leave your centrally located Buenos Aires hotel in a comfortable minibus, driven by your friendly guide. During your roughly 45-minute journey, admire the Argentinian countryside as your guide explains the country’s passion for polo and the exceptional talents of the horses and players.
Arrive at a polo center and enjoy a welcome snack of empanadas and Argentinian wine during a fascinating talk about this niche sport. Hear how Argentina’s horses are bred and trained and how blood lineages are continued.
After learning about the time and energy invested in the horses, expect to be blown away by the pace of a live polo game! Watch a high-octane match of four chukkas (time periods) involving 30 horses as your guide describes the techniques and rules.
At lunch, savor an included Argentinian asado (barbecue) of scrumptious grilled meats, or opt for a vegetarian dish, accompanied by Argentinian wine. Then, lounge by an outdoor swimming pool or soak up the rural views on a stroll.
After you've digested and relaxed, get ready for a polo lesson! Start with a safety briefing, and then climb onto a horse that matches your riding ability. Don't worry if you've never been on a horse or played polo: this lesson is suitable for all skill levels. Grab your taco (polo mallet) and learn the essentials from an expert instructor in a practice session. Once you feel confident, take part in your own mini-game! Feel the adrenaline pumping as you chase and hit the ball with your fellow novices — it’s a thrilling experience!
Afterward, reflect on your exciting day on your return journey and enjoy a convenient drop-off at your hotel.

It was a great way to spend a day in Argentina. Not that I'll ever play polo but it was interesting to learn about the rules, see a game and get a chance to practice on horseback. The thing that will appeal to everyone is the great food and the company! They really made an effort to make you feel at home.
Great and well planned day. Super facilities and people. A must do in BA.

Excellent from start to finish! I am dying to go back, worth every dollar and more. Best part of our trip. It was such a fun unique experience!
Outstanding experience! unique oportunity to be introduce to the Polo game in the outskirts of Buenos AIres, the BBQ is all you can eat with nice Malbec and the environment being so nature-friendly
NOT TO BE MISSED .....WELL DONE...GREAT DAY ...POOL , POLO, FOOD AND HISTORY....!!!!
Transfer from a local location to the Argentine country side, on arrival we get told the history and rules of polo along with wine. We see a game, have an amazing bbq, more wine, get on the horses to play polo, then at the end relax in the lovely pool. Really recommend this excursion.
We had a great day- the polo was fun and interesting, and the guide and the rest of the staff were extraordinarily helpful and welcoming. The food and wine were great, too!
Great day out!! Had an awesome experience where the South Africans showed their might, although the Matt Damon doppelganger was a good candidate for man of the match. Would def go again.
An incredible experience and one of the real highlights of our trip to Argentina. The guides were very welcoming and entertaining. The puppies were an added bonus.
This is a unique kind of tour option outside the city when if you love horses and like to try Polo. The tour is very carefully designed for a small group, and nicely carried out from time of hotel pick up to time of drop off. It is a beautiful area where the club is located , with very warm welcome and hospitality.
Absolutely a MUST if you plan to go visit Buenos Aires. First, because it is a reputated sport within Argentina and second, it will give you a glance of the Argentinian Pampa which was for us absolutely priceless.
The instructor, Pablo, is very professional, warm and welcoming. We've had selected the whole day Tour with Barbecue/Lunch included and we loved it.
The only down thing was the VERY cold weather! Indeed, living in Dubai and wanting to escape the dying heat of the desert, we were not well prepared to face this icy/rainy/windy weather, although very common during winter. This made our experience more difficult being an outdoor activity.
Nevertheless, this is an experience we highly recommend and we are already planning another trip to Buenos Aires with a slightly warmer weather though.
