One would be well served to engage the professional guide services of Marcelo while visiting Iguazu Falls and area . He is a very knowledgeable individual who will enhance your visit with information not only on the Falls but life in general in Brazil. A thank you to Marcelo for a most enjoyable tour especially for suggesting an early morning start to avoide the crowds. No hesitation in recommending Marcelo to our fellow visitors. Wayne J Grady.

I would give him 10 out of 5 if I could! He truly made my trip with my sister to Iguazu Falls incredibly memorable and educational. He was super detailed in his organization, efficient in his planning and super responsive to the shifts in our schedule. His knowledge of the land, local botany, culture and history of the environment made our visit extra insightful. We were able to skip long lines and get the best photo opps because of his experience. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Excellent guide, very informative and accommodating of delays due to cruise line late arrival/customs delays and subsequent change of flights to Iguacu.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Neil Beman, I'll keep in my heart wonderful memories about your group. I was frightened due the numbers and volume of your luggage but we managed to fit all the luggage in the car and do an excellent tour, thanks for your cooperation. I was amazed how we did our tours, even considering border problems, storms, protests, your long trips to come here and you overtook all obstacles only with two things, good willing and sense of humor. I am honored and gratefull to have being your guide. Marcelo
Marcelo was amazing! We arranged tours to Paraguay (very eye opening!), as well as the Brazilian Falls and Bird Park. He also picked us up from the airport, and arranged a transfer back to the airport. He is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable, and truly an amazing human being. We cannot recommend him highly enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew Lukaszewicz, Thank you very much for your visit and your comments. Also in our conversation, I learned a lot with you two. I had a pleasant stay "guiding" you, my both new friends. Thank you very much for sharing your time with me. Respectfully, Marcelo
Marcelo is an AMAZING tour guide. His knowledge of the Iguazu Falls and surrounding area is extensive. His passion for the natural environment is obvious and he does an excellent job of sharing his knowledge. He was always punctual, organised and an excellent communicator. Marcelo was very patient with our 2 year old son and the varying pace in which he allowed us to travel. His English is excellent and he has a wonderful sense of humour. We can't recommend him enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan Benson, Thank you for your visit, thank you for your comments, thank you for you and your family, now, part of my life. I am still astonished with so pretty family that you are part of. Your stay only transmitted good vibes. Warm regards for you, Sasha, Skyler, Samuel and Abraham, your husband. Marcelo

Marcelo was simply awesome - We did the "Iguazu Best Package" and everything went perfectly. All of his recommendations were spot on and he was excellent at the naturalist elements of the trip in addition to general guiding to the various falls venues.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith Kelley, I was only a mirror for your brightness and sensibility to this natural beauty. I am really pleased to opportunity you gave to me to have being your guide here, thank you very much. I also learned a lot with you. Respectfully, Marcelo

Marcelo is a fantastic tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area and was very informative regarding the history and conditions of the area. His English language skills are impeccable and personality wise very enjoyable to talk with while on our tours. I would highly recommend Marcelo to other travelers visiting the Iguazu area.
Marcelo was a very helpful guide and a pleasure to be with during our amazing visit to the Falls. He is very accommodating to your needs and very flexible with the itinerary. He provided good suggestions for food in the area. He is a very knowledgeable, personable and accommodating guide. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to hire a private guide to the Falls.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Phong van and family, My stay with you was very pleasant and I also enjoyed very much our time together I learned a lot with you too. Thank you for coming and sharing your experiences. Respectfully, Marcelo
Marcelo was the ultimate tour guide! He was always prompt, professional,friendly and eager to share his vast knowledge of his country including plant, animal and bird life. Marcelo was attentive to our personal needs. He navigated customs for us with ease and efficiency. His attention to detail was unsurpassed! He even washed his car every night as part of his high standards. We spent 4 days with Marcelo and could not have asked for a better ambassador for Brazil and Argentina. Thanks for everything!!
Vidyasagar PremkumarUnited States
We did the Iguasu falls tour for trail hikes, birding, three country landmark tours with Marcelo. We traveled as a family with 2adults and 2kids. Marcelo was very prompt in picking us at the airport, for the birding tour and great knowledge about birds, fauna and flora. I would highly recommend Marcelo for touring in Iguassu falls - brazil or argentina as he is very knowledgeable, prompt and a great person to be around
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vidyasagar Premkumar, Thank you very much for your feedback! The weather which didn't cooperate for a better tour but anyway I was very proud to have had you as my clients. All the best for you all!
Cecilia ReynekeSouth Africa
What a wonderful experience we had with our guide Marcelo. He was exceptional in his work ethic and well educated. He was a fountain of knowledge and his love for his work showed. It was just a real pleasure to have him for a guide. If he said he was going to be there at a certain time, no worries, he was always there waiting. And a bonus was an extremely neat, clean and well groomed car. I will recommend him anytime. If you can give a score higher than 100% he will be the one to deserve it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Cecilia Reyneke, This was the best trip report I've ever had! Which just increases my responsibility with my next clients. I had a wonderful experience with you and your husband. Thank very much for everything. Respectfully, Marcelo
Daniel M.Fort Walton Beach, FL, United States
Marcelo was truly a super guide; always on time, very well versed on the area along broad areas of interest, and definitely flexible. His car is very clean and quite comfortable. We couldn't have been happier. We were with him for three days for the Iguazu Best and San Ignacio/Wanda Mine tours. The waterfalls are spectacular! We did both sides (Brazil for the super view!).
Marcelo was helpful and knowledgeable about the Falls
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment Coralie Belman.
Walter Scott J.United States
Marcelo was an excellent guide and looks after every detail as if it were his personal family. He was prepared and very organized. He has learned about the flora and fauna of his area and seems to enjoy sharing that knowledge with others. He has studied the patterns of tourists to the Iquazu Falls area and organizes your tour to get the maximum return for your time. I highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Me and my sister in law Patricia loved to have known you and your wife! I'll never forget their wisdom sentences about feelings, human and nature. Their presence made us richer.
Hamish W.United Kingdom
This was our third visit to Iguazu and with our eldest daughter and family. Marcelo was an extremely knowledgeable and helpful guide. The package consisted of airport pick up and drop off. Delivery to the Sheraton followed by a guided tour of the Argentinian side of the falls. The following day Marcelo picked us up to tour an Indian village then the Brazilian side of the Falls followed in the evening by a Folk Show. Marcelo was very friendly and helpful and we all enjoyed his tour and company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Hamish Wilson, Your comments make me happy as I was happy during your stay in Iguazu Falls area. You are so nice people that I was pleased to have you all in my company. Thank you very much for everything. Marcelo d.
Marcelo was simply amazing. Very knowledgeable of information about flora and fauna, history, culture, where to eat, etc... about the whole area. Furthermore, he was very accommodating of our unconventional schedule, and went out of his way to help a friend out at a hospital when he got sick. Most importantly, he is very friendly, and explains things very well. I would recommend Marcelo to anybody who goes to Foz du Iguazu.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andre Schuetz, I'm proud to have had you and your friends as my clients. Obviously I did my best for you talking about flora, fauna and other local subjects but was also an opportunity to hear from you and your friends which let me surprised with such wisdom from young and respectful adults. Thank you also for the invitation for the dinner. I wish you all a successful, healthy, peaceful a happy life. Thank you very much, Marcelo
Jeffrey P.Chicago, IL, United States
Marcelo did a great job. He was always on time, friendly, knowledgeable, spotless car. We went to both Brazilian and Argentine sides of the falls and he provided transportation to and from the airport. I would recommend him highly! Thanks for your help and patience!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeffrey Podnar, Thank you very much for your comments. You are very friendly and very nice persons but I don´t know how, I feel I could have been a better guide for you and this is a feeling which push myself forward, to try to do my "job" every time better. All the best. Marcelo
Alan RamageUnited Kingdom
We only had two days in Iguazu and were advised to take a guide and I am so glad we did. We couldn't possibly have packed in what we done without Marcelo. He was on time at every pick up, was very knowledgable about the area and nothing was any bother to him. I would certainly recommend Marcelo to anyone who is going to the area, I believe it would be difficult to find a better Tour Guide. Marcelo certainly contributed to an excellent trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr. Alan, I am still happy to have made all the tours we did with so short time. You are very nice people and I also had customers five stars. Thank you very much.

Em Foz do Iguacu e importantissimo visitar os dois lados,especialmente o Argentino,cruzar a fronteira toma tempo, mas o Marcelo nos ofereceu o melhor transporte o mais rapido servico na Aduana-fronteira e esteve sempre super atento as nossas necessidades e interesses.
