Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live as a Gaucho, a South American cowboy living off the land with only the most basic of comforts but totally and utterly free? Have you pondered the possibility of what herding llama would be like living as an Andean shepherd, caring for your flock and eating only what you produce from your land? If the answer to either of these questions is yes then maybe we could help you fulfil that dream. We have many contacts in many different walks of life, types of lives that are completely alien to people from first world countries. Our Argentina Cultural Tour will give you that fully immersive experience.
Would you like to learn how to make local delicacies such as empanadas or tamales or even learn how to make a real authentic Asado? In that case a day of culinary experience could be just what you are looking for. Join us in our home to learn how to make the local specialities while sharing a bottle of wine and enjoying our pool (in the summer months). It would be a pleasure to have you and to teach you all about the culture and cuisine that we have fallen in love with.
If you would be interested in a culinary experience , a day as a Gaucho or even a week as an Andean Shepherd than get in contact with us and we will do our best to make it happen.
Our Argentina Cultural Tour experiences are completely customized. Available options start at around US$150.00 per person (two-day trip) with food included and very basic accommodation. This price is based on 4 people sharing an experience together. Rates for smaller groups would need to be arranged. These experiences are not always available as the people with whom you would stay do not work in tourism but are people living their lives and willing when possible to share how they live with a lucky few outsiders. You would however always be accompanied by one of our dedicated staff to translate and assist when necessary.

How we spend the time
Gareth picked us up and off we went…up into the mountains: Quebrada de Humahuaca, overnighting in Tilcara. It was great having a personal English speaking guide who ensured we did the sorts of things that interested us. Day 2 the awesomeness continued, visiting Salinas Grandes and Purmamarca …before the drive back to Salta airport in plenty of time for our flight! Thankyou !
We did both of our tours with Gareth, who was a total legend. He really went above and beyond to give us the best trip ever, and we felt we left having gained a friend.
“The pace of the trip was perfect and Gareth was an excellent guide- informative, knowledgeable and friendly. We have some fantastic memories (and photos) of the trip. Thanks again for making our time so memorable”.
“Our guide was Gareth, originally from England, a very special boy for his sympathy connected to a great kindness and attention to the needs of tourists.
For us, the main feature was the fact of providing us with important information of the places visited, always willing to accommodate our requests, also leaving space to visit alone.

“James and I can not thank you enough for making our trip so incredibly special. You are a wonderful travel companion and your knowledge of Argentina is impressive.
Please keep in touch”
Jane and I have had such a wonderful 3 days visiting such varied and unique landscapes and with the only person we would ever trust to drive us up and down those hairy roads and through enormous deserts. Your love of this country really came across. What a trip!!! 5 stars all round. Thanks a million.
