Tour description provided by Viator

One of Argentina's most impressive industries has been Agriculture and cattle raising. In this 9-hour tour you will get to know the history and the insights of these two combined. Visit an Estancia (South American equivalent of a ranch), and take in the culture of the Pampas.
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.
