What people are saying about Puerto Iguazu

by far the boat ride is the best. everything was great and I cannot complain anything about this tour....what only pisses me off is that same company and same tour all of it with other ppl that were with us paid less than 25% of the price. so be carefull .. price is definitely not more than 50 euro from what Argentinans have told us.

Fantastic guides that spoke fluent Spanish, Portuguese, English (and French!) The falls were incredible, the facilities and pathways were VERY well maintained and clean. food at the restaurant was valued very very well also. I highly recommend this trip

Retigt god guid jeg fik også endda helt for mig selv og en fed tur hele vejen rundt kan helt klart andbefal det man skal dog ikke regne med en privet tur det var bare sådan det lige faldt ud for mig.

This event is not to be missed if you are in Iguazú. Fascinating landscape and a wild ride on the Rio Iguazú with a refreshing shower or two. Just great!

Great guide Wuilliams, the boat trip into the eye of the waterfalls was super awesome
