It was a privilege having accommodated for this tour. Actually i was taking Macuco Safari in the morning yet my tour agency in Iguazu managed to squeeze the schedule in order for me to join this Itaipu Dam tour in the afternoon.
The place is huge, i am amazed on how this dam was built. I am happy to know that both Brazil and Paraguay were benefited from this huge construction. This is really a massive engineering.
Highly recommended!

The dam itself is quite impressive. However, I find that the tour was a bit short. The tour included a film, which presented the history of the dam, and a bus trip around the dam with several stops for picture-taking. I suggest to those who will visit to also include the park in the itinerary.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2016

the bookings indicated a pick up/ tour starts at 2pm and we got pick up from the hotel at 6 pm .
not what it says on the descriptions of the tour .
not worth the money and time.

The package only for transport, the driver is great, but still a bit expensive for transport.

Not worth seeing if there was no overflow from the dam. DO NOT DO THIS TOUR! very very very disapointing as our guide was DEFINTELY NOT ENGLISH SPEAKING and we felt very unsafe! we got to the dam and nothing was organised and we had to book another tour on arrival to the dam. very very unhappy
