    Itaipu Dam
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    Built on the Paraná River near the border between Brazil and Paraguay, the Itaipu Dam is the largest operational hydroelectric power plant in the world. On this panoramic sightseeing tour from Foz do Iguaçu, you’ll tour this engineering marvel, which generates a power of 12,600 megawatts, approximately 25% of the electricity consumed by Brazil and 95% of the energy consumed by Paraguay. Your guided sightseeing tour gives you an up-close view of the Itaipu Dam and offers you the chance to take some great photos! Your knowledgeable guide will be happy to answer any questions you may have. On this tour you will do the Panoramic Tour. As the ticket is not included, you will pay for it on the spot.: * The Panoramic tour : Watch a documentary film on the power plant. See the dam and spillway from the central observation deck (without entering the facility). The grandeur of a plant built between two countries, when revealed in numbers, is surprising: the Itaipu dam is 7,919 meters long and 196 meters high. But when viewed from close up and from various angles in a tour around the Itaipu Panoramic, it impresses even more and guarantees a unique and striking experience. In addition to the privileged view of the spillway at the top of the dam, the path still allows contact with nature and beautiful landscapes within the Itaipu Tourist Complex. * The Technical tour cannot be done in this tour.

This is a good place to visit if you have several days in Foz. I did like that we were on a few buses within the park, and that you get a very good view of the dam. It is the largest dam we have ever visited. They have a good souvenir shop also.

FRAUD - Horrible experience.
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a horrible experience. A driver from Grey Line tours met us and took us to the Itaipu Dam, but once we go there, we were told that we did not have tickets.

Itaipu staff are great people and did a lot of legwork for us. We speak Italian, Spanish, and English, but not Portuguese, so the staff called trip advisor and Grey Line tours and confirmed very bad news for us. They confirmed that Trip Advisor does not do business with anyone named Gray Line. They also confirmed that the 252.30 Brazilian Real that we paid for this trip (about $66) was only for the transportation from the hotel to the dam.

We are working with our bank to get the 252.30 Real refunded. We were forced to buy our own tickets. We took an Uber back to the hotel for less than $4, as it was only 8km.

Somehow we were taken advantage of. Perhaps you can help us rectify this situation.

Thanks,

Sightseeing Tour - Itaipu Dam
Mar 2019
It is an awesome place to visit. It is pretty impressive! It is the second largest Dam in the world, however it is the one that produces the more power than any other. I recommend the tour. loved it and I also learned a lot from the tour guides.

Engineering marvel. Spectacular views

Don't miss if you have enough time in Iguazu fall. This would be a half day trip.

Don't book this tour. All they provide is transportation which you can book yourself.
