We had an incredible day with Marcelo! He is very knowledgeable and eager to share! We enjoyed all his information about nature and culture! It's incredible how much he knows. Spending the day at the Jesuit ruines gave us greater insight into the province and the indigenous from the area. We loved it. Thank you Marcelo.

Our group of four was met at Foz do Aguasu airport in Brazil by Marcelo. We travelled to the Brazil side of Iguasu Falls and finished our day by going to our hotel In Argentina. On Day 2 we travelled to the Argentine side of the falls. Marcelo was super. He was patient, extremely knowledgeable, and enjoyable company. He had answers for our many questions and helped us get the best angles for photos. He has a terrific eye for sighting birds and animals. We had a great experience with Marcelo.

Marcelo met us at the airport on time and gave us a wonderful tour of the National park. Having been there hundreds of times and with an interest in wildlife he was a fountain of knowledge and added so much more than if we were on our own. No hesitation in recommending Marcelo to anyone!

Marcelo is a knowledgeable as well as gracious guide for all things Iguazu!! He is a bird watcher as well as knows about all the other varied flora and fauna of the falls. He also knows about all the other attractions in the area. He is the epitome of graciousness, courtesy and personalized service. He made our trip to the Iguazu area and falls better by knowing almost intuitively what we would want or need before we even asked. For a magnificent trip to Iguazu use Marcelo as your guide!!!

Marcelo was an excellent guide, and his knowledge in particular of bird calls helped to located a lot of species that I would most definitely have missed had I been on my own. Marcelo was also very friendly and respectful, and a very good companion.

Marcelo was a very interesting guide! His passion for birds, languages and any other intellectual pursuits really added to our day particularly since the Missiones tour is a bit of driving. He was very knowledgeable about the Missiones and kept the day moving smoothly. His English is very good and he is very comfortable to spend the day with and learning from. We appreciate him making our day in Iguazu going to the Missiones a great part of our trip and would definitely recommend him to others!

This was an excellent tour - and Marcelo is a great guide. He picked us up at our hotel in Argentina and he drove us across the border to the Brazillian side of the falls. Marcelo is so knowledgeable! We loved the tour - Marcelo s a wealth of information and and explained everything very clearly, in excellent English (he also speaks many more languages!). We highly recommend Marcelo as a guide - he was prompt, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.

I would definitely recommend Marcelo as a tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the falls, surrounding area, and wildlife. His English is excellent. He was very accommodative of our schedule - our flight landed two hours late and we were still able to accomplish everything we planned, although we had to walk quite briskly. It was a bit difficult to communicate with Marcelo via email as he was slower to respond and didn't answer all our questions, but everything worked out and we would use him again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael Borys, Thank you for your feedback. All your words will be used for my self improvement. I had a great day with you. Respectfully, Marcelo

If you want a guide who loves the environment - birds, plants, bees, wildlife and the astounding Iguaçu Falls then Marcelo is your man. We had a very busy day, we viewed the Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentine side, both sides are spectacular. Marcelo's tour is not for the feint hearted, we walked 11.9 kilometres which equates to more than 16,000 steps! Lunch was on the run, we bought a sandwich and just kept going. We had a great day, heaps of info delivered with passion! Thumbs up Marcelo!

Marcelo was the perfect guide. Friendly polite and helpful. He arrived to pick us up on time and gave us a brilliant day out at Iguazu Falls. He ensured we got good views of the Falls. Right from when we booked this tour a year ago, Marcelo kept in touch and answered my questions and he then let me know a week before that everything was fine.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarah, I am happy that you also have enjoyed your day. I am on tourism because I love it. Explain, "teach," assist and look after my guests, are parts of my duties, which is part of my mission as a guide. Thank you for your kind words. Respectfully, Marcelo

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Erica Butler, Yes, about the weather, I didn't find yet a solution. Anyway I really enjoyed our full day at the waterfalls. It is very good to be ahead of the crowds. Thank you for your words. Respectfully, Marcelo

Marcelo nos ayudó a cumplir con nuestra meta de ver las cataratas desde ambos lados de la frontera. Fue muy activo y dinámico y completamos todas las actividades que queríamos hacer, incluido el paseo en bote. Fue un placer conversar e intercambiar con él. ¡Su nivel de competencia en varios idiomas es impresionante!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Me alegro por tus comentários. Y como nosotros los tres hablamos! Para mi fue una experiencia inolvidable, muchisimas gracias y saludos. Respectuosamente, Marcelo

Marcelo is a great guide! He was very attentive and knowledgable about the local flora and fauna. He has eagle eyes, if you are a birder you definitely want him as your guide. He picked me up in Brazil then my parents in Argentina then we went back to Brazil to see the falls all with a smile on his face. We would definitely use his services again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tyne Mester, You are a highly experienced traveler, independent and a great photographer. I was actually luck by committing a mistake when I took you straight to the brazilian side after the airport pickup with your parents and instead of go back you decided to continue the tour. The end of the history you know better than me. I wish you and your parents a great life. Thank you to have come, for your patience, to have chosen me as your host in Iguazu & thank you for the inspiration that you brought.

Marcelo was excellent! My friends and I would highly recommend his tour. He spotted plants, animals, insects etc and pointed everything out to us. He is very knowledgeable about birds especially. We felt the cost was very reasonable and we got more out of seeing the falls than we would have if we had done it on our own.
