    The visit to the Falls was OK, the guide was pretty good, but there was not much to do, no hikes or anything. The Dam extension was a big waste. the guide refused to explain anyhting in English, the ehad phones did nto work. We simply drove around the dam. We did not stop to see anything at close range. I thought we would get to see one of the turbines . Do not choose the extension.
