In this tour you will visit the Town of San Antonio de Areco, where you will become acquainted with a Pulpería (a typical establishment in South America where the main provisions were sold). You will get to see how a craft chocolate shop works and learn the history of the town before you reach the Estancia.
Argentina is well known for its vast farmlands. Since the country´s formal organization as a national entity in the second half of the 19th century, it followed an agricultural and livestock export model of development with a large concentration of crops in the fertile Pampas. It is largely limited to stock-raising activities and centered on the export of cattle hides and wool.
Once there you can take rides on the horses or go for a ride in a sulky (2-wheeled cart) while enjoying a buffet of traditional cold cuts, cheeses and beverages.
At lunchtime the group will enjoy a typical country-style barbecue prepared using only the finest quality meats. Dessert is accompanied by a folklore show, which is followed by a demonstration of gaucho skills.
This whole package will give you an outlook on the Argentinian countryside and its history.

Our day trip with Marcelo fulfilled our expectations. He was accommodating and gave us an informative day on the Pampas. The town sight seeing gave us a look at Argentinian life. The rest of the day at the Estancia was great. The food was good and gave us a taste of authentic cooking. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Good value.
