  • Morretes: Full Day Colonial Town Tour from Curitiba

    2. Morretes: Full Day Colonial Town Tour from Curitiba

    Venture by train through the Atlantic rainforest, with its unique flora and fauna, to the historic colonial town of Morretes, nestled at the foot of the Serra do Mar mountains in the state of Paraná. From your Curitiba hotel in the morning, you'll be shuttled along some of the best preserved rainforest in southern Brazil, to the foothills at the Serro do Mar where Morretes awaits. You'll explore the historic center of the town, strolling amidst the quaint 18th-century architecture, old colonial houses and churches, and through the craft market. You'll stop for lunch on the banks of the Nhundiaquara river to feast on the region's traditional Barreado, a meat-dish cooked slowly in a clay pot for several hours, then served over rice, with fruit, and a side of breaded fish. No Brazilian experience is complete without a taste of its wholesome cuisine!

    Overall the trip was great but the train I didn't give it five stars is because when I was given the train ticket the seat was in the section where no English announcements would be given. I wad told by the tour guide I'd need to pay in another $R200 to get a seat in the English section. I then produced my voucher and another attendant arranged a seat in the correct section. I also felt that the Antonino visit was a bit rushed. The tour guide and bus driver were excellent

  • Itaipu Dam Tour with Admission Ticket from Foz do Iguaçu

    3. Itaipu Dam Tour with Admission Ticket from Foz do Iguaçu

    Meet your guide at your hotel and head to the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam, 20 minutes from Foz do Iguaçu and a world leader in clean and replaceable energy production. Itaipu is located in the middle of Brazil and Paraguay, so you’ll visit both countries on this tour. Your tour begins with a 10-minute video at the Visitor Center, which tells the history of the construction of the dam. The guided tour continues by bus outside of the reservoir with three stops to allow you to appreciate its panoramic views. See the view from the edge of the dam and continue on the path that will take you to the natural surroundings of the dam and the beautiful scenery inside the Touristic Itaipu Complex. At the end of the tour, enjoy the beautiful view of Itaipu Lake before returning to your hotel.  

    The guide Helen was really helpful and courteous. I feel you can do this tour easily on you own, just get a taxi to it. I would have like yo do the extra tour of the inside of dam, but hard to arrange on short notice.
