What people are saying about Foz do Iguaçu

Wonderful tour. The only important thing is that I think it is described in a somewhat approximate way among the offers of get your guide: the bird park tour and this one of the waterfalls is a unique tour, even if they are sold separately in the app. Both great. We first did the bird park, then the walkway that runs along the waterfalls, lunch break, then with the macuco safari in the forest, the walk and finally the boat ride. Tip: it is good to bring a change, before getting on the boat there are lockers and therefore slippers can be put on AFTER finishing the path in the woods. Each part of the tour more beautiful than the other. The guide very helpful and nice.

The tour is well organized and practiced. Good use of time for stops and highlights. I came in May which is almost winter. Even though it rained, the experience was great.

Goed georganiseerde trip. Hierdoor konden we de lange wachtrijen skippen. Ook een uitstekende lunch
