Ir entre semana es mucho mejor que un fin de semana por la cantidad de gente. Hay muchas opciones para comer en el lugar, nos encantó el local de Palta por las opciones de comida más saludable. Nuestros hijos son mellizos de 9 años y como era un día de mucho calor, les encantó pero fue muy cansador como para recorrer todo el parque. Decidimos dejar para otra vez la parte de la granja. El acuario y los aviarios son fascinantes para grandes y chicos. Un paseo muy disfrutable. Con niños de 9 años, calcular 5 horas. Más que eso les resulta un poco largo y se cansan. Las tiendas tienen buenas opciones, precios razonables. A la entrada te sacan una foto de familia y otra a los chicos solos, que podés comprar a la salida con un marco temático de cartón. Muy lindas fotos. Si comprás las 2 te regalan un vaso. Vale la pena. Tener en cuenta los horarios picos de tránsito: a la vuelta de tarde la autopista suele estar congestionada. Incluír costo de peajes y comidas para calcular valor final real.

We had a really great day at the ranch ! They tour guide Sabrina was so lovely and full of really great information about the city and the ranch. We arrived and had empanadas and wine which were amazing ! Then we did horseback riding - so relaxing and fun. Horses are very well trained. Afterwards we had a traditional bqq where they just kept bringing the meat !! It was amazing, all the food was delicious. After food we watched live music and dancing and got a chance to join in on the traditional dancing. It was very fun. Then we watched a short horse show with its rider. It truly was a great day experiencing the ranch in Argentina! 100% recommend

The day was wonderful. Touristy, of course, but authentic. We were really just a few travelers. Our tour guide Nico made the day a joy. The farm owners gave us the impression of being part of the family - the Ranch El Ombo was just a dream. Horseback riding, lots of flat land, cattle, birds, BBQ, dancing... just how you imagine the Pampas to be. If you don't drive across by yourself and don't have much time, the trip is highly recommended.

It was a beautiful day outside of Buenos Aires. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the country and its people on the trip. The farm we visited was beautiful, the food good, plentiful and authentic. We rode across the fields and saw a very impressive horse dressage. In addition, two musicians played for us. The day was really impressive. Very well organized and entertaining.

We were picked up at the hotel on time, the tour guide informed us about sights and parts of the city on the bus on the way to the ranch, and answered all of our questions. The bus was modern and clean. We were warmly welcomed and fed at the ranch. This tour is worth every penny.
