The trip can be divided into three parts, with trips to Iguazu Falls, to Paraguay and to Uruguay. The trips to the Falls and to Uruguay went well but the trip to Paraguay was modified without my consent so that excursions planned for two days were combined into a single day. Thus we arrived quite tired and late in Ascension and needing to recuperate. These plans had been changed by the tour company who also failed to advise of of their plans for pick up. The guide they chose for us performed very well but was obliged to follow the new schedule. I can only assume that the change was made to save the tour company money by employing the guide for a day less. I cannot recommend the tour company and thus would advise caution on a trips planned by this travel agency into Paraguay.
The guides provided did a very good job and the hotels were more than adequate. Timing otherwise was very punctual but the length of the trips as advertised in the itinerary were often exaggerated for example one 10 hour trip took only 6 hours (the trip to Posadas).
The trip to the Falls would be considered the most enjoyable as the excursions required no rushing and we were able to stay in the same hotel for three nights. After this we were changing hotels every night. The Falls were very impressive and fortunately the weather obliged to keep dry.
I would avoid staying at a hotel in Posadas and would have taken the trip from the Falls directly to Encarnacion. There seemed little to do as tourists in either of the two towns. I would have also insisted that the travel company employed in Paraguay follow the agreed schedule.
Travel Company's Comments
Our partner operator in Paraguay changed the itinerary to have a better operational organization but they didn’t advise us of this change, neither the passengers. When we realized of the changes made we spoke with the passengers to apologize about this and offer them some courtesy services: a free excursion and a free dinner in Asuncion. Passengers were really kind. They were upset about the itinerary changes, however, they were happy about the rest of the trip.
