Spend a day in the Argentine countryside on this full-day tour from Buenos Aires to Estancia Don Silvano, a traditional ranch, where you can experience a real "fiesta gaucha" (party of Gauchos). A South American version of the cowboys of North America, the Gauchos are the inhabitants of the Argentine plains. Don Silvano's Gauchos will give you a fabulous day of ranch-style activities: horseback riding, snack tasting, barbecue lunch, dancing and performing their superb horsemanship skills.
