Tour Overview

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is an eclectic blend of contemporary vitality and old world languor. Your active full-day excursion reveals a mélange of historic architecture, high-rise hotels, glitzy shops, humble barrios and the vast open plains of the Pampas.

Begin your adventure on a narrated drive with a guide who is well trained to share highlights of local history and culture. Watch through the window as you pass through Palermo, a lovely district of parks, gardens, mansions, and embassies. Your narrated drive through Palermo includes passing the mansions such as the American Embassy which retain the areas original French influence.

During your exclusive visit to the ranch, you can explore the grounds and enjoy a traditional asado al asador, the gaucho-style country barbecue featuring famous Argentine beef. After lunch, you'll be treated to a colorful folkloric show of Argentine music, dance and renowned feats of horsemanship.

In Argentina, the term gaucho originally meant vagabond and was used to describe members of the lowest levels of society who survived by roaming the Pampas and working cattle. Their dress consisted of a woolen poncho, neck fastened bandana, pleated trousers and long leather boots and they had no home or belongings other than what they carried on horseback.

Because there was no way to preserve meat on the open plains, the horsemen of the Pampas invented the barbeque or asado. Over time, their excellent horsemanship and military aptitude brought them much repute and their colorful way of life was eventually romanticized by such poets as José Hernández.
