We booked a ride for January 17th by email. They wrote back confirming the booking and said they would pick us up at our hotel. We waited 45 minutes and they never showed up! No phone call, no email, nothing. This was our only free day for this activity so we were quite disappointed. I contacted them by email and... More

Sayta was recommended to us as the best experience and an absolute must while in Salta. We 100% agree. We were collected at 9am and instantly felt good vibes. It's a short drive from salta city and we were welcomed by Enrique and his team with open arms. Edwardo was our gaucho guide, he made us feel relaxed on the... More

Our last day in the Salta district and what a day spent with the enigmatic Enrique and his family!! Breakfast, morning horse ride, a BBQ lunch with the whole family, not the horses! Then another ride out in the afternoon. I am a novice rider and had one of the best experiences ever, Cossacko was my companion for the day... More

I am an absolute beginner at horse riding. I mean I have hardly even touch a horse before this experience. As others have said, they pick you up from your hotel and drive you about 45 minutes out of town to the ranch. The ranch is surrounded in tobacco plantations and small hamlet villages. You are given breakfast when you... More

We got picked up at our hotel at 9, there is approx 45min drive to the ranch. We received a war welcome and a breakfast before starting the day. Then we rode the horses for at least 3 hours. Really nice experience! the Gauchos showed us really nice paths and landscapes in the middle of small villages and nature. The... More

We had a great time at Sayta Ranch. We got picked up and dropped off at our hostel in Salta. Had breakfast at the ranch and rode the horses for about 3 hours. The horses were easy to manages, but not so well trained that you couldn't get to ride a little your self. The owner Enrique was so sweet... More

Enrique was a highlight of the trip. This Gaucho has been a around for a while and enjoys sharing his experiences with his guests which are both interesting and hilarious over some really good wine brought in from the Cafayate area. The food is exceptional and probably of the best we've had in Argentina. ... Oh yes we road a... More

I loved my trip to Sayta Ranch. The horses were well trained. The trek was at least two hours long. We saw the beautiful countryside on horseback. It really was a relaxing activity. We had the option to gallop the horses. The guides galloped alongside us on their horses. We held onto the guide as they held the reins with... More

We were really keen, both having done a lot of horse riding before to get out on a ranch in Argentina. We were collected from our hostel and taken to the ranch 45 mins outside of Salta and served coffee and cake for breakfast where we met the charming and larger than life Enrique who proved to be our favourite...
