Marcelo was one of the best tour guides I've ever had. He was extremely knowledgeable of the local area, the fauna and floral and was just generally professional in every way. I would highly recommend him to anyone I had an amazing day in Iguazu Falls with Marcelo.

The day was marred by he terrible traffic conditions getting into Paraguay. Marcelo helped make it the best of a bad situation by taking us to the waterfalls and showing us the city. He was very friendly and helpful with my wheelchair. Despite the problems outside his control made it a good day. I recommend his services

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irvine Rodger, Normally we do a walking tour to the paraguayan side. Anyway I try always to serve my visitors as best as I can. This is the most crowded border in Brazil, so that's why I gave to you a bonus going to Monday Waterfalls in Paraguay. We were able to see the aspects of the city, see some nature and feel the atmosphere from this guaranitic country.I am happy to have shared this with you but also your comments are important to impruve my services. Kind regards, Marcelo

Marcelo was an amazing guide! He was on time picking us up in the Argentinian airport (Cataratas) and did a great job touring us on the beautiful Argentine side of the falls. He was very interactive and described the local flora/fauna and let us enjoy the falls on our pace. He dropped us off at our hotel later in the day, and then picked us up the next day on time, touring the Brazilian side. Overall, he was a great guide and we are very happy with his service! Can't recommend him enough! Thanks Marcelo!!

Marcelo did a great job in providing a walking tour of the Iguazu Falls. We did the train to the Devil's Throat and the lower circuit. He was knowledgeable in the falls, the foliage, and the wildlife (insects) in the area. He added needed commentary when doing the walking tour. In addition, we drove to the intersection of Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina and a quick tour or Iguazu (nothing there). I would recommend Marcelo for better appreciation of the Falls and the area.

Marcelo was outstanding. We had limited time and some complex logistics but he handled the tour, the border crossing and pickup/drop off very smoothly. Moreover, his narrative was excellent. Not only about the Falls but also about Brazil generally.. the history, culture, diversity etc. He is a very interesting and interested professional and also helped by providing some great contacts in other cities which we used.

We only had a day to visit Iguazu Falls recently and couldn't have asked for a more informed and friendly guide who really knew the area well plus knowledge of the flora &fauna. l got bumped off our 6am flight so arrived 3hours later than planned- but it didn't phase Marcelo a bit. Messaged back and forth at 5.30am - no worries. Marcelo collected us in v comfy car drove to the park and got us off to a great start. We walked 12km all up with him and saw every single accessible part of the Falls. Amazing!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jacki Bressington, Thank you very much for your message. This tour was also very nice for myself too. We are good walkers and interested in flora and fauna.

Marcelo was an excellent guide. Met me with a friendly smile at the airport, showed me the bathroom while he got his car. He took me to the bank and would have taken me shopping for food, but I preferred to walk. His knowledge of the birds was excellent and he explained about them too. He will send me a list of birds seen. He knew the best sights at the falls and took me to them and spotted other animals and birds for me to see. It was a whirlwind tour, saw the highlights and got to airport on time��

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan Konopnicki, Huge ants, tapirs, jaguar and other animal's footprint, seen during the tour. Few cars passing through this unpaved road, nature around followed by a distant sound from the waterfalls then the Iguazu Falls itself, giant and wild from different angles. This was a little that we saw. Thank you for you sensibility for nature it is an honor serve persons like you. I am grateful for your visit Susan. Marcelo

This is the first holiday where we have booked private guides just for us, as compared to private group tours. Although private guides are expensive, you get what you pay for. In this instance we had a brilliant day with Marcelo that we could never have achieved if we'd tried to do it on our own. Marcelo's spotless car, his perfect English, his well planned itinerary, the border crossings and his drop off at the airport were perfect. We recommend Tours By Locals and Marcelo D to anyone visiting Iguazu.

A wealth of knowledge. He not only educated us on the falls but also general topics related to his home country Brazil and Argentina. You will not be disappointed.

Marcelo was a perfect guide. His spoken english and his understanding of the language was faultless. His knowledge of the falls and the surounding area, the fauna and flora was exceptional and left no questions unanswered.
