What people are saying about Foz do Iguaçu

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!

A splendor of flora and the mighty waterfalls should not be missed. A trail that is not too strenuous, tickets recommended via the Internet. It poured with us, but that didn't detract from the enthusiasm, rain protection is offered on site.

It is a nice dance show of three different cultures, there is a nice souvenir shop in the area, and food places. Ferris Wheel of Foz is 5 minutes walking distance from the 3 Frontiers. Our guide Willian was very good and helpful.

Excellent, good guide and very helpful, knew how to look after you, the boat trip is a must and the view of the falls is incredible, you must do this tour
