“Interesting, stunning, not so exhausting :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

it's a tour on a bus, showing the area (Brazilian AND Paraguayan) - it's really interesting - though we didn't see the water falling as this happens only at the end of raining period.
We just saw the turbines water falling with a few rainbows.

“Panoramic view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We did the panoramic tour, it was interesting, but very short (a large part was watching a boring movie). I would recommend doing a more complete tour to get the chance to actually see how it works.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

One of the greatest experiences in my life! I would definitely recomend the technical tour as they allow to get inside the dam, see the turbines, the operations room and other facilities. A panoramic tour is also available but I think not as exciting as the technical one.

“A special tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We took the special tour package that takes the visitors inside the dam. It was awsome, only entering the dam one can ralize how huge it is. What also makes the tour even better is the organization. You cdan buy the ticket on the internet, they have a parking lot and it is not a crowded place despite being carnival. Everyone that goes to Foz do Iguaçu should visit the dam.
