  • We received agatha's nomination at Agência A3 of the Hotel Carimã and thought that the tour would be the most dull in Foz do Iguaçu, but I was surprised. The visit is very cool and the landscape of that monumental work with the nature that surrounds it is fantastic. I'm definitely recommending it.

  • A good choice for short excursion and not far away from... the panoramic visit we did because we traveled with a very good, shocking to see the dam, all very neat, clean and organized. It's worth going
