Iguacu Falls is not the only natural wonder in this amazing neighborhood. Just 10km (6mi) from Foz do Iguacu, massive Itaipu Dam was, until recently, the world's largest manmade structure (since eclipsed by China's Three Gorges Dam) and is still the ...

This was the best Dam tour ever! : Some people are annoyed that this tour essentially is transport to get to the Dam and back to your hotel, but it clearly states what's included and what's not. Depending on which hotel you stay at, the taxi fare round trip will be much more than this costs, so it's well worth it as the Dam is about a 20-minute drive outside of town. We weren't expecting much to see, but were pleasantly surprised at how organized and tourist-friendly a dam can be. Be sure to bring your passport and cash with you the rep wouldn't accept credit card as he booked our tickets as one large transaction he assumed we only wanted to do the panoramic tour but we were interested in the technical tour too. It takes about 1 hour for each tour and the only English version was at 10:30 back to back. The other 2 people in our bus only did the panoramic so they had to wait an hour for us to be done with our technical tour. We highly recommend the special/technical tour as you really get to see the inner workings of the entire facility up close and with knowledgeable guides. The short video before you go on the tour is very helpful, but we recommend watching something on YouTube from National Geographic beforehand to better understand the context and mechanics in layman's terms to fully appreciate the modern marvel that this place really is.

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.

Not worth. I guess it would have been better to do this during the day and being able to see the dam better at your own pace.

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
