Itaipu in detail: a special and unforgettable tour through the interior of the Plant

A special and full of energy visit: in addition to seeing the famous sights of the Panoramic Tour, you will still get a closer look of the details of the Plant, the architecture of the majestic concrete cathedrals that make up the 196 meters high dam (equivalent to a 65-story building).

What an experience to tour this incredible, gargantuan place with a rich history that's considered one of the 7 modern wonders of the world. Itaipu Dam generates the most hydroelectric power of any such facility anywhere, and is the world's second largest hydroelectric power station by capacity behind Three Gorges Dam in China.

Disappointed with the Lake Tour. We were told it was a 2 hour tour, but what they did not tell us is that it included travelling time by bus. At the end the lake tour by catamaran was only 40 minutes

The Itaipu Dam is an incredibly large manmade construction on the border of Brazil and Paraguay, just an hour from Iguazu Argentina. From upclose you can see with your own eyes how the dam functions.

Itaipu Dam has plenty of attractions. If you want to visit the internal part of the Dam, don't forget to bring pants and dress shoes. Kids under 14 are not allowed to get into the internal part. The external part visit also worths the visit. It is done all by bus and there is a guide explaining details of the... More

Guided tour was pretty good, very informative and well paced. Views and landscape are beautiful and adds to the fact that it's one of the world's largest engineering works.

We took a side trip here and the tourist tour - it is an excellent tour, clean, informative and really quite amazing. I never suspected to be this excited about a Dam Tour, but also enjoyed it as much as Iguazu Falls.
