Details about this tour

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Iguacu National Park, Foz do Iguacu, State of Parana
The Brazilian Falls will be visited with its traditional gateway of 1,200 meters long where you can get a spectacular panoramic view of the 275 waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls, of which the Brazilian side are four: Floriano, Deodoro, Benjamin Constant and Salto Union or Devil's Throat.
After the tour, you have access to the panoramic lift that will reach the bus that will take you back to the gateway
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Cataratas del Iguazu, Iguazu National Park, Province of Misiones, Litoral
Argentina Side: (visit 2 of the 3 circuits)
From Puerto Iguaz, youll travel first to Iguaz National Park in Argentina to explore the Lower Circuit, Upper Circuit and Devil's Throat.
The Lower Circuit is composed of a trail approximately 0.8 miles (1.3 km) long that allows you to get close to some of the smaller waterfalls on the Argentinian side. Walk along the trail, which is equipped with both restrooms and snack bars, and get close to the Carlos Bozzetti Waterfall, where you can take some great photos.
The Upper Circuit, which is wheelchair accessible, allows you to see the top of the majestic falls on the Argentina side and enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the area. The view stretches from the Argentinian falls to San Martin Island and parts of the Brazilian falls.
Devil's Throat is the largest waterfall in the region and where the largest amount of water pours through Iguassu Falls. At an impressive altitude of 350 feet (107 meters), Devil's Throat is a must-see Iguassu Falls feature. Thanks to the newly built catwalk, you can get pretty close to this site!
Brazil Side:
Then, leave Argentina and cross the border into Iguau National Park on the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. You'll get another close-up view of Devils Throat, which is best seen from the Brazilian side. 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 is famous for its rainbow, and more great photo opportunities abound!
For a close-up of the falls, walk through the parks subtropical forest 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.
Duration: 4 hours

    Awesome views of the falls from both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides - very different views and perspectives. Easy to see in one day but if you want to do boat under the falls etc take 2 days

    We were the only two of our group that booked to see both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of Iguassu Falls. Therefore, our tour guide didn't bring us to meet up with the other tour guide for the Brazilian side after we finished seeing the Argentinian side. He gave us verbal instructions to meet up with the other tour guide in the main entrance. He told us to take the train ourselves in the national park. However, no workers in the train station speak English and could help us. When I asked which train can take us to the central station, the worker just showed me the way and it happened to be a train to the wrong direction. By the time we realized we were on the wrong train, we were late in meeting with the other tour guide in the main entrance. This resulted that we missed our tour to the Brazilian side. This should be a FIVE stars tour but I can only give it a THREE because I felt the tour guide should have brought us to meet up with the other tour guide since there was hardly any workers who can speak English and help us.

    If you just want to see both sides without the additional experienced added -- this is very good -- if you have more time available--better to do this trip over 2 days

    This tour is perfect if you only have a day to see as much of the falls as possible. The Argentinian guides directed well but understood little English so there wasn't any information given other then things we read while we were there. The Brazilian guide was amazing giving lots of extra info in Spanish and English equally, she was really good and made the cost of the tour worthwhile

    We took this tour thinking that we would see full tour on both sides. Our guide told us that to see both sides we really need 2 days. We were the only ones that had to leave the Argentinian side to go see the Brazilian side. The rest of the tour took the train to Devil's Throat which is a close up of the tour highlight. We did see Devil's Throat from the Brazilian side but it was very far away and we missed out on the close up view according to the other people - it was unforgettable. Our Argentinian guide was great, our Brazilian guide was OK - just followed us and not much explanation. Crossing the border was easy and pretty quick. Due to time constraints we could not take the boat tour because we had to rush to meet our Brazilian tour. It all just seemed too rushed so if you really want to enjoy the Falls - take two separate tours 2 days otherwise you will be disappointed.

    Perfectly good tour but guide spoke for about 15 minutes in Spanish then about 2 minutes in English so if you don't speak Spanish you miss out on quite a lot of detail.

    There really is no “guiding” on this tour - it’s just transport to/from the falls. I would do it alone if I could do it again!
