What to expect
Take a break from admiring Iguacu Falls to visit the other attractions in Misiones province on this full-day tour. After pickup at your Puerto Iguazú hotel, travel 155 miles (250 km) via coach to the San Ignacio Mission. Built in 1632, this mission has been partially reconstructed and helps visitors learn about the Jesuit missionaries in Argentina during the 17th and 18th centuries. While strolling around the crumbling mission buildings, learn from your guide what it might have been like to live like as a native or a missionary in this region over three centuries ago. Back aboard your vehicle, you'll travel through the countryside to the Wanda Mines, the source of the region's spectacular naturally formed gemstones. Learn about the formation process of minerals including amethysts, agates, topazes, and quartz crystals. Active since the 1970s, this mine still produces stones that are used for jewelry and decoration today. After touring the mine and the exhibition hall, return to Puerto Iguazú for drop-off at your hotel.

ENGLISH SPEAKERS SHOULD NOT BOOK!
Dec 2019 • Couples
Despite TripAdvisor noting that this tour would be in English, it was NOT. Nor did any of the guides speak English. Not on the bus. Not at the mine. Not at the Mission. Thankfully, my dad and I speak and understand enough Spanish to catch the highlights. That said, even if the tour had been in English, it would not have been worth it. The mines are only quartz and it is basically a gift shop stop. The lunch stop had disgusting bathrooms, no English menu and mediocre food. The museum at the Mission was 1 room and to get close enough to read the poorly- translated English signs, you have to stand in front of guests trying to read the Spanish signs. A late departure, a late return and 6 hours of travel time on the bus made for a HUGE WASTE of a day.

English Guide Does NOT Speak English!
Aug 2019
My family of 5 was stuck on this all-day tour in Spanish. We purchased the English tour! My receipt/voucher says "Language: English". The guide's nametag had the British flag on it, but he said he did NOT speak English. And he did NOT! The only part of this tour in English was the tour at Wanda Mines and only because someone working there spoke English. Otherwise, the tour guide narrated in Spanish on the bus. The Mission tour was in Spanish (no English guide available). The American movie on the bus was dubbed over in Spanish. The tour guide made no efforts to make sure we knew when to return to the bus or any other logistics. I found myself chasing him down at every stop as he would walk away from the bus as soon as it stopped. This was a full-size charter bus that held 50+ passengers. I reached out to the company after the tour for a partial refund and they refused. Terrible customer service!
