What people are saying about Foz do Iguaçu

We booked helicopter flight, bird park, waterfalls and boat tour. The group consisted of 18 people in a small bus. The guide spoke understandable English. The flight took 10 minutes. A lot of money for such a short time but we thought it was worth it! Whether it is absolutely necessary: no! You can visit the waterfalls from different heights, also from a tower and that is wonderful and completely sufficient! The boat tour was great! You get completely wet as they steer the boat into the waterfall! So put on clothes that dry quickly and waterproof your cell phone. Negative: instead of 6-8 hours as advertised, we were on the road for almost 11 hours, since we enjoyed everything, it wasn't a problem for us. But there were people who didn't book all the activities and then had to wait a long time pointlessly. That would have annoyed me immensely. The guide could have communicated a bit better where he waits how everything goes. It was a bit irritating!

Amazing highly recommend doing it worth it completely and going with a 3rd party is very nice you feel well taken care of. They are very well organised. The boat ride was very fun.Make sure to wear clothes you dont mind getting wet and they have lockers you can rent there using apple pay or card/cash get a water proof bag for you phone or they take pictures/ videos you can purchase for only a 100reals. Overall very nice the lunch buffet at the Canoes restaurant is decent.

Great trip but because we booked speedboat as well Without speedboat this excursion is not interesting as bridge to Devils throat is destroyed

The falls are stunning, and the boat ride was 10/10; you get completely soaked and the run through rapids is amazing, loved it.

Fantastic Tour.! With nice and friendly tour guide.! Thank you a lot from Greece.!
