What people are saying about Foz do Iguaçu

Good communication prior to the trip, and quick responses especially via email. The WhatsApp communication was a bit confusing and patchy, would recommend getting in touch with the company via email. Our guide Douglas was excellent, very nice and accommodating as well as caring. The pick up was at the said time and Douglas helped us with all documents needed for the Argentinian and Brazilian border controls and explained the entire tour in detail. The views were incredible and the boat trip was highly enjoyable - definitely make sure to take an extra set of clothing because you will be drowned in water after the boat ride. We were able to skip the queue going back into Brazil due to the guide having a tourism marked car, so we got in and out of Brazil without any waiting time, making the trip highly efficient. Would highly recommend Douglas & the trip.

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.

Really nice trekking through part of the jungle around the iguaçu river with excellent tour guide. Very nice addition to the park visit we did the day before. We loved jumping in the waterfalls!

The activity was well planned and our guide Voldomiro was grewt!

A great experience with friendly and helpful guides!
