The trip to visit the falls on the Argentinian side was fabulous, our guide was excellent & very knowledgeable. It is a full day tour with lovely walks thru the bush & along the top of the falls. The 2nd day to the Brazilian side was average. You get great views of the falls from the Brazilian side, but there is a lot of queueing and waiting around. The trip was a little shorter but effectively we only spent about 45 minutes out of the day trip sightseeing.

The pick up bus was right on time, this organised trip relieved us of having to go through border check, ticket and bus trips on our own. Martello, our guide was extremely pleasant and had very good English. We were the only English speaking visitors on the tour and he explained everything to us. Overall, a very pleasant way to visit Brazil for a short visit.

Cesar was amazing. Very helpful and crossing the border was easy. He did everything for us. Thank you

Very nice well maintained park, very nice garden, and beautiful birds. I recommend this tour.

A great experience with friendly and helpful guides!
