Full description
After being picked up from your hotel, arrive at the Itaipu Dam Visitor Center. Watch a 10-minute introductory video in the cinema room which explains how the dam was constructed. Learn about how the Itaipu Dam extends for 7,719 meters across and 196 meters in height and is a world leader in renewable energy production.  Continue the tour with a ride in a double-decker bus along the perimeter of the reservoir, making 3 stops for you to admire the incredible panoramas. This route allows for privileged views of the spillway at the edge of the dam and gives you the chance to admire the beautiful natural scenery within the Itaipu Complex. The dam was constructed across the border of Brazil and Paraguay so during the tour, you will hop from one country to another. At the end of the tour, take the opportunity to soak up the beautiful views from the top of Itaipu Lake before taking advantage of a return transfer back to your hotel. Upgrade your tour to include access to the special ciruit tour, which allows visitors into the inner section of the dam, or the illuminated tour, which includes a special audiovisual lights display.

I opted for the tour with just the entrance ticket ... wish I opted for the inner circuit.

The Itaipu Dam Tour itself was interesting and well organized. But there was the problem of coordination between your company and your local partner as follows: You informed us that "The local partner will pick you up between 06:30 and 08:00" but your local partner changed the schedule to 10:00 which affected our tour schedule in the afternoon. Moreover, when we arrived at the Itaipu Dam, we found that your partner did not reserve the ticket of Special Circuit Tour for us according to our booking. The guide bought the Panoramic Visit Entrance tickets for us which we could not accept. The guide helped us to contact the company and change the ticket from Panoramic Visit to the Special Circuit Tour for us but we had to wait the tour schedule for English until 2:00 PM and finished at 4:30 PM. Therefore, we could not visit the Iguazu Waterfalls, Brazillian Side as planned in the afternoon.
