Date: Feb 21/20

We had a great 3 days with Silvio. As well as showing us all the sites, we chatted amiably and easily throughout. His car was really comfortable. He explained the border-crossing processes so we knew what was going on all the time. (Crossing back and forth between Brazil and Argentina is a bit if a rigmarole, but made much easier with a private guide like Silvio. I left a bag at the Bird Park on Day 2, and Silvio made enquiries, and then arranged to retrieve it. Above and beyond! Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sally, Thanks for the review, you are part of this 5 stars, It was really fun to show you the best of the Falls, hope to work with more people just like you. I had 3 great days. Thanks! Silvio

Both Carlo and I enjoyed Silvio as guide and driver to see Iguazu Falls in February 2020. Day one early morning Silvio picked us up at the airport and directly took us to the Falls on the Brazilian side. The tour was peppered with facts about the Falls as well as videos on his phone. Day two, Silvio recommended a very early tour to avoid the late afternoon heat and the crowds. As a result, we were able to see the Argentine side leisurely sans heat and crowds. He was very accommodating and knowledgeable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear friends, thanks for the review. I had a great time with you. Best regards!!

My wife and I had a full day tour of Iguazu Falls with Silvio which we enjoyed very much. Although our hotel was in Argentina, Silvio recommended that we go to the Brazilian side to view the Falls since we told home we wanted to avoid unnecessary walking. The trail was mostly down hill and ended at an elevator that got us back to the top. The Falls were spectacular as advertised and were easily viewed. There was also a nice restaurant for lunch. Silvio was anexcellent guide. We had a great day?

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gregory I’m happy that we could visit the best of the Iguassu Falls Brazil, thanks for your review. It as a pleasure to take care of you here. Best regards

Silvio is *GREAT*. Our tour was *PERFECT*. We communicated a lot prior to the tour to enable Silvio to schedule us for the most effective use of our time. He was right on schedule to pick us up and explained EXACTLY what we would be doing and when. He did everything in his power to make us comfortable throughout the tour and to provide us with the BEST TOUR. Silvio is *VERY* personable and friendly. He is *EXTREMELY* knowledgeable. His communication skills are *EXCELLENT*. I *HIGHLY* recommend him.

Silvio was the perfect guide from the start, from our delayed flight through to the end of our few days. We fitted everything in at our pace. Being an animal lover we got to visit the bird park and the animal rehabilitation centre. We also visited the dam and went onto Paraguay territory in our visit. The falls were amazing and we spent a lot of time at the falls from both sides. I would highly recommend Silvio, he is one of the best guides I have had in all my travels

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon, Thanks for your comments, read it gave me joy and happiness, it’s was really fun to show you around and it was very interesting to walk with people that loves nature and also take care of it. I wish all the best! Thanks again for letting me be part of this special moments. Wish you all best! Silvio M.

Silvio was simply amazing. He knew what to do, when to do it, and how to get it done. We saw everything at Iguazu Falls, but only with his guidance and knowledge could we have accomplished what we did in a single day. His commentary added a very great deal to the experience. If you come this far to see this natural wonder, you owe it to yourself to have the best experience possible, and for us, Silvio made that happen. Bucket list item done and done! Thanks Silvio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ron and Fred, its people like you that makes me love what I do, to show around was just like taking great fiends for a fun day. I really thank you for the opportunity to be part of this amazing time. thanks for every single word about the tour, sure I will not forget, and who knows, maybe we meet again, here or somewhere else. I wish you all best! Silvio

Although somewhat new to T.B.L., Silvio is an old-hand at providing excellent guide services at Iguacu Falls. On time pick-ups, new+comfortable vehicle, knows where+when to go to avoid crowds and make the most of your time. He even provides "body guard" services against the monkeys and Coati with his handy umbrella (hah!). Book Silvio without hesitation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great time with you! I loved to know about my extra service as a "body guard" Thanks Robert.

Silvio was excellent! We only have a 24 hour span in Iguassu, 3:30pm to 2pm the next day. Silvio was able to show us both the Brazil & the Argentina side of the fall, the upper and lower trails and all the key sites! He knew the place really well, we were able to avoid the crowds and he told us interesting stories all the way! Silvio was an excellent guide, my wife and I highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear friends, thanks for your comments, we had a great time! I understand that things are complicated right now, but we hope it will change soon. Brazil is fighting the virus but our politics are taking advantage of this difficult times to fight and the people are suffering more, most of the news here about the virus is fake. We are safe and doing well. Best regards!

Silvio is not only knowledgeable about the area, but he is also entertaining and accommodating. He was able to handle every question that we asked along the tour. We couldn't ask for a better guide! He went out of his way to ensure every part of the tour was perfect.

An amazing experience, up close and personal with the falls. Silvio is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and passionate in his work and this really enhanced our trip and made the whole day so enjoyable. He is also very patient as we're not as fit as we used to be! Would highly recommend this tour.

I spent 3 days with Silvio and can honestly say that it was 3 of the best travel days I have ever had. He was extremely professional, and openly shared his wealth of knowledge regarding the history and myths about Iguazu Falls. He knew the best routes to avoid the crowds and even offered to drop me off at the airport the day after our tour had ended. Amazing guide and I will definitely reach out to Silvio the next time I am visiting Iguazu Falls!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Drew, I had a great time with you, it was just like taking a good friend a fun day. It’s people like you that makes me keep going and also makes me realize even more that I love what I do. Hope to meet you again here or in Canada .

We hired Silvio for a three day tour around Iguassu for our family of three. He picked us up from the airport and everything ran like clockwork from then until he dropped us back off. Everything was done at our pace and we agreed all the timescales etc on the way round. Silvio was very knowledgable and is clearly an experienced guide who prioritises the requirements of his clients over everything else. It was a pleasure to be shown around this amazing area by him which he is clearly proud to call home ��
