day tours from asuncion

Hi, I have recently cone back from a great week in Paraguy, not long enough for this pretty, relaxed and interesting country with delightful people. I was travelling by myself and at no time did I feel unsafe. Although I didn't go walking far at night in asuncion, . I went on a great golden circuit day your with Pedro Martinez. He is more reasonably priced than others and his English is greattach as is his driving and knowledge. His son also takes tours if Pedro is full. They can also do tours to Encarnacion or do pickups and tours from there. Highly recommended. You can contact him at

pedromartinez312@hotmail.com or +595981259772.

In June 2018, we went to Iguazu Fall and Itaipu on an overnight tour, leaving Asuncion at midnight, a guide will pick you up at the hotel to take you to the bus station (NSA bus- you can sleep on the bus) arriving in Ciudad del Este at 7AM, another Guide is waiting for you to take you to the Brazil side (we had already bought a $44 electronic visa to Brazil while in the US). The guide will take you thru immigration (very simple and fast) and then she (guide) took us to the Itaipu tour and then to the Iguazu Falls park (the fee for the park was $15). She waited for us then it took us back to C del Este to take the bus at 6:30PM and arrived in Asuncion by 11PM where another guide will drive you back to the hotel. It was a wonderful trip. Cost is $130pp.

Hi. My Golden Circuit has just been cancelled and I'm struggling to find an alternative at short notice which is affordable for one person. How did you find out about this guide? I can't see anything about him on the internet other than your post, which would normally worry me - but you did say you were happy travelling on your own with him - so presumably you felt safe and he was affordable.
