    I’ll do this in point form as my original review didn’t go through and then it was ‘lost’.

    * A terrific day out!!!
    * Our guide, Rosa, was very informative and personable
    * The estancia was in a beautiful setting with an attractive, historic main building, a beautiful lawn and trees that you sat under to eat lunch
    *Very tasty food and delicious empanadas
    * friendly, helpful staff
    * a very enjoyable horse ride for at least an hour
    * entertainment after lunch was good... singing and dancing and group participation if you were interested.
    * The horse whisperer at the end was amazing. He had the horse laying upside down with its legs in the air as he was lying on top of it!!
    * only small groups.. maybe 70 people in all. No bus loads of cruise ship passengers. Much more intimate.
    * A great day out. I loved it.
