Wow! Five star experience start to finish. Our guide, Joaquin picked us up from our AirBnB and provided an excellent overview of local history and background information about the mountains, ranch, and challenges in the gaucho way of life. The day started with fresh Mate and sopaissas (sp?)and we began our journey. Stunning natural beauty and well cared for and responsive horses. Daniel and another guide joined us for a traditionally prepared lunch of meat and vegetables roasted over an open fire, apps of wine and cheese. To say this experience was amazing would be an understatement! Incredibly gracious hosts filled with knowledge and the small personal touches made this a very special and memorable experience. ¡Gracias!
