In Paradores Draghi begin your journey through history not only as a spectator, but also as a participant in the process of making exclusive goldsmith pieces that take shape through the hands of artisans recreating the techniques of traditional goldsmithing as their founder, Juan José Draghi, did in the 60s.

The foundation of this oratory was very important for the creation of the town. In the years 1720 and 1728, the first chapel was built, it was located a little more to the right than the current one. The foundation stone of the present church was placed on February 7, 1869 and was buried under the central entrance door. Inside it was placed a lead box containing the original records written on parchment, newspapers of the day, medals and coins of the time.

We had a wonderful day. They picked us up at our apartment door, on time. There were only 12 of us. Our guide Eugenia was knowledgeable,extremely considerate and friendly, spoke excellent English, knew when to talk and when to stop on our 1.5 hour drive to San Antonio de Areco. We had a nice visit in this very quaint village: the silversmith, the church, the park. We then drove to the estancia where we were greeted with drinks and delicious empanadas. Then we went horseback riding for 30 minutes. This was followed by lunch in the garden of this very stately estate, the food was plentiful ( 3 different salads and seven or eight servings of different meats, choice of 2 desserts) and delicious with your choice of drinks. They then put on a show of folkloric dances and songs. There were “real” gauchos actually working on this farm.
We had a quiet return to our front door. The tour was 9 hours in total and Eugenia made it a wonderful experience that we highly recommend.

You will NOT be dissapointed! Attended with my husband and our 13 yr old. Our ride was super fun and beginner friendly. The setting and estancia were stunning. Food was good and the entertainment was pretty, and interactive. Staff was very hospitable. The stop into town was also worth it. Just do it!

We were part of s small group led by tour guide Enrique. He was a very friendly and knoiwledgeable tour guide. Stopped in a small village before ranch. Had a great time with the horse ride, great food and show - specially Horse Whisper. Enrique was very informative about the ranch but also talked about life in BsAs, which made the tour all the better.

The tour was well organised and fun we were blessed with amazing weather . The ride was lovely but there could have been given more help for less confident riders in the group. But every thing was fantastic. Food and wine and entertainment wonderful.

A visit to all those rich traditions that have enabled BsAs to become one of the most imposing and interesting cities in the world: dance, asado and gauchos. Brilliant!

I had amazing time during the whole trip. The tourist guide, the Frenchman, is very knowlegeble and pleasant and gave us extensive information on gaucho history and life. I felt cared the whole time. We were welcomed by the owner of the farm and his family. Btw their empanadas are the best we had in Buenos Aires! They also accommodated special requests and they really didnt have to.The Parillada was abundant and delicious. Thank you all for making this experience so wonderful!

Superb tour , from start to finish. Very well organised, amazing guide, such a warm and friendly atmosphere. Ranch is a working ranch and they limit numbers to ensure a more personal experience. Food excellent. Horse whisperer not to be missed!!! To summarise, probably the best tour we have ever been on.
