Details about this tour

Iguassu Falls was created as the result of a volcanic eruption that left a large crack in the earth. Taller than Niagara Falls (and twice as wide), Iguassu consists of 275 cascading falls spread out over nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) in a horseshoe shape. During the rainy season, between November and March, the rate of water that flows over the falls can reach more than 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic m) per second. In short, its a phenomenal natural wonder that youll want to see from as many angles as possible.

Leaving Puerto Iguaz behind, you'll cross the border into Brazil and visit Devils Throat, the largest waterfall in the region and one best seen from the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. Here, you'll watch as 14 falls drop 350 feet (107 meters) with such force that a 100-foot (30-meter) tall cloud of mist stays permanently suspended overhead. This area famous is famous for its rainbow, and great photo opportunities abound!

For a close-up of the falls, walk through the subtropical forest of Iguacu National Park to the base of Salto Floriano. Then take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.

    To truly experience these falls you need to see both sides. Brazil is looking at it while Argentina is being in it. The tour itself, like the other side, was heavy on Spanish

    Great opportunity to see the spectacular Brazilian side of the falls - be prepared to get wet! Make sure you get the real local operator's name from Viator. We were given Gray Line Tours which doesn't operate in Iguassu but uses a local operator. The front desk staff at our hotel helped us figure out who would be picking us up and at what time. Viator/TripAdvisor should know better!

    WE did this with Gray Line AR. Pick up hotel was on time. Meriam, our tour guide did a good job in facilitating the legalities with the Argentinian border. We signed up for the English tour, but Spanish-speaking tourists made up the bulk of tourists in our bus. So Meriam had to speak in Spanish at length, and in English relatively shorter. On our way home, Meriam led us to a Cuenca Office, trying to get a driver to drop us off to our hotel. As we were sitting in the reception area, we were hoping that Meriam would tell us about the driver. We were surprised to see her leaving the area without saying a word or anything. That was odd, if not, rude!

    Another amazing day at the Iguazu Waterfalls but a different perspective from the previous day to complete the picture for us. We had the same guide as the previous day Miguel. He expertly guided us through the immigration procedures at both the Argentinian and Brazilian borders on the way there and back. He had excellent English and was able to share his years of experience and expertise about the park and the area. Because they had arranged a Brazilian Bus for us we were able to stay on our tour bus for the day rather than transfer to the Park Bus. It was less strenuous activity than the Argentinian Park but the views were just as awesome and completely different. So pleased we chose to do both sides of the Falls. Thank you Miguel for 2 fabulous days. Very enjoyable.

    Our guide, Manuel, was fantastic. Lots of information, guided us on the paths of the falls and had a great smile and personality. If you are on the Argentina side of the falls this trip makes your life so much easier. The guide takes care of the papoerwork for the crossing, you never leave the comfortable bus. Also tour busses get preference at the borders. There was a long line in both directions for cars.

    Everything was very well planned, the friendly guide helped us with our next plane back to Buenos Aires.
    The tour is worth it and you don't have to think about time, luggage or passport, all is done for you. The views are amazing! I recommend as well doing the Argentinian side the day before.

    We were told this half day tour would have us back at the hotel by lunchtime which suited us fine as we were flying out that afternoon. Then we found, the day before, that the tour would stop for lunch on the Brazilian side and would not get back until 2.20pm. so we had to abandon the trip which we had paid for and never did get to see the Brazilian side of the falls. Very, very disappointing.

    Tour was good and got to see what it said. Lunch was also good. I was the only English speaker on the tour but I was used to that by this stage of my trip!

    This half day tour from the Brazilian side is very worth it ! As you will see the iguazu falls from another panoramic angle. And one is able to capture everything from the Brazilian side from this half day tour.
