Socially Responsible Access to the Gaucho Heritage

Socially Responsible Access to the Gaucho Heritage

Camino Pampa is the only tour company with a Socially Responsible Access to the Gaucho Heritage : with the main destination: San Antonio de Areco “cradle of the Argentine tradition”, and its gaucho community.

We have a comprehensive approach in covering the aspects of being socially responsible: social aspects, promoting business, environmental issues, supporting cultural events and specifically the gaucho heritage expressions.

 

* For us Travel is an Exchange:
We have the opportunity for a cross-cultural understanding with our visitors, the best way of providing them with a unique experience, and also support our families, community and Argentina Traditions.

 

* Travel features included into our Tour:

_ We are contracting as many services as possible from local Areco town providers: transfers, tour guides, gastronomy, designers, artists, etc.:

Your money will stay and be multiplied in our gaucho Areco town, improving our community conditions in many ways you’d never expect, because of the Socially Responsible Access to the Gaucho Heritage that we have developed in San Antonio de Areco

_ Everything in our town was made in human scale, so does our experience: we arrange just small groups that do not interfere/invade locals´ places and facilitate the interchange.

_ Promoting reciclyng actions in town and the Estancias: Plastics in a special program, paper and bottles.

 

 

* We´ve also been spreading our contribution to some local NGO´s, communities, institutions and social centers:

 

_ Conin Areco: Association against the children´s malnutrition in San Antonio de Areco community

2015: We start our third great year of the Real gauchos experience near Buenos Aires

This is one of the reviews from 2015 season:

Wonderful day tour, highly recommend! (written by willthatsall)
We were picked up promptly at 0830 as scheduled by the spacious and comfortable van for the ride from Buenos Aires to the town of San Antonio de Areco.

We spent some time walking around the town at a comfortable pace and had the opportunity to visit silversmiths and a delicious chocolate shop with time for shopping if we were interested. It’s a beautiful and friendly town – – our guide seemed to know everyone. Definitely a world of difference from Buenos Aires.

Next, we visited the estancia and we’re greeted with an empanada and choice of drink while we had some leisure time before lunch. We had time to walk around and see the horses and cattle as well as the gauchos at work. Lunch commenced and was generous to say the least. We had dinner plans but ended up cancelling after having so much to eat at the estancia. Sausage, chicken, ribs, ribeye, sirloin, and tenderloin steak. And if you wanted a second portion of one (or all) of the courses, the gauchos were happy to oblige. We were also treated to traditional gaucho music by one of the veteran gauchos during lunch.

After lunch there is an equestrian show in which the gaucho shows his ability to communicate and interact with the horse–very impressive and a chance for all of us to take photos with the gaucho and horse at that point.

Next we were able to ride horses with the gaucho (about 20 minutes, or so) and that concluded our day around 1630.

Last but not least, our tour guide, Manuel was spectacular. He is friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and has very entertaining stories. A true Renaissance man. Of the dozens – if not hundreds – of tours I have been on in my life, I believe he is the absolute best tour guide I have encountered. The others on my tour seemed to agree. I recommend this tour, and especially Manuel, without hesitation

And this it is just one example of the ones written in 2014 by Becca V about Estancia Tour Tripadvisor:

Amazing!

We absolutely loved our experience with Camino Pampa! We were traveling around Argentina quickly and cheaply, so this was a bit of a splurge. We debated spending the money, but were very glad we did! We were picked up in front of our hotel in a minibus/van with only one other couple aboard, who we enjoyed getting to know during the day’s trip. It was about an hour/hour and a half drive outside of Buenos Aires, but very comfortable and enjoyable. We first stopped in the city of San Antonio de Areco and saw the local church, a silversmith’s museum, and an artisan chocoloate shop. The history and information that Juan Manuel gave us was great! He was knowledgeable, knew everyone, and was funny! He was a great guide! After the the tour of the town we drove to the estancia. Arriving there had me awe; It was gorgeous! We got settled in and were offered empanadas and drinks (water, juice, wine, etc.). I’m vegetarian, and forgot to email them until late the night before, but when we mentioned it to Juan Manuel, he made sure to find me a veggie friendly snack and made sure that something special was prepared for our meal later. After our snack we had the option to browse the grounds, go on a carriage ride, or ride horses. We wanted to ride horses and had the most amazing time! I’m not a rider but have gone on tourist riding experiences before and felt a little uneasy. However, this time was amazing. The saddle was different than ones I’ve been on before and they made you feel comfortable and secure on the horse. I didn’t want to ever stop! When the ride was over, we had about 15min or so before lunch was served so they offered to take me, my friend, & our new friend from the minibus ride back out. After the ride we had lunch outdoors on the lawn with large round tables and nice table settings. We had endless wine, and to my husband’s and friends’ delight, what seemed like endless offerings of Argentinian meats. Lunch was amazing and our guide, Juan Manuel, ate with us. We felt like friends by the end of the meal! Afterwards, we heard live gaucho music and saw a gaucho perform a ceremony with his horse. It was one of the best life experiences I’ve had! While this is a tour package, it doesn’t feel touristy. The tour of the town was just us six and very personal and the owner of the estancia ate lunch with us so it felt like she was just having you over to her place. If you don’t go on this tour, you’re missing out!
