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).

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. The tour guides are ever so friendly and knowledgeable. Go there if you want to see a modern world wonder. Take the special tour and... More

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.

The biggest hydroelectic dam in Brazil, they offer 8 differtent tours for any kind of visitors. For some like the special tour and the night tour you should book in advance mainly during December and January. Very interesting for the kids also.

There was a time when this hydroelectric plant and damn were special ... now, it just seems like an old, outdated structure. The visit is not very interesting, unless you are really into these sort of things.
