We thoroughly enjoyed our day. The guide was informative and was delivering the info in both Portuguese and English. We added a helicopter ride to our tour which was the first thing we did. This was exhilarating and definitely worth doing. However we had to wait an hour to fly which meant we had very little time for the Parc des Aves afterwards and the guide whipped us through in a flash to catch up with the rest of the group who didn’t fly. We were then driven to the Falls. These were incredible but more crowded than we would have liked. It was really hard to walk and get a front seat view without being pushed by the crowd. It is high season so if you have a choice it would be better to go in low season or go solo so you can arrive before the crowds. This detracted from the awesome sight. It was a long day and we didn’t even add the boat ride which looked like a fun thing to do to complete the whole experience. For younger travellers it would be a must I think. All in all brilliant

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!

For me this was perfect. Great communication from the provider and excellent pick up/drop off for the tour guide. I booked the private tour option and was picked up at the agreed upon time. The car was air conditioned and clean. When we got to the falls, it was great to skip the lines waiting for buses. I was given about 90 minutes to explore the falls on the little “hike.” I had the option to add the bird park and the boat safari, but those did not interest me. Thank you!

Great trip! It is one of the best attractions in Brazil. Buy this trip with Birds park and speedboat for full experience Don’t go to Argentinian side right now as the 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.
